About Me

My biggest contribution is my maturity in the field of Yoga Movement, Pranayama, Meditation, Yoga Philosophy, Steiner Education and Visual Arts


I pride myself as someone who is adaptable in my surroundings, having lived in India for many years in my early 20's, lived in ashrams and institutes that hold different philosophical views, to living in remote areas that are self sustainable. All undoubtedly contributed to my open-mindedness, creativity, and adaptability, as well as working in a diverse team.


As a teacher past and present my biggest contribution has been to hold space, in holding space I offer others to step in, whether working with 20 years olds or 70, I am very comfortable to teach from a place that enables the individual to come into contact with Self. 

I am one passionate person!

"The vast variety of students in which Sarmarie navigates this practice of yoga with, is something I look up to. Whether it be in a dynamic Mysore room or a relaxing Yin Yoga class, Sarmarie's delivery, attention to detail, student connection and big warm smile is what keeps students (myself included!) coming back"
