Sarah Daniels, Founder

 

After witnessing the effects of a strong daily practice on my mind, body and spirit I knew I wanted to share this practice with as many people as possible. I have been studying and teaching yoga since 2013 at home in Western Canada as well as abroad in Spain, Guatemala, and California. Throughout my studies I have focused on yoga nidra, yoga as therapy, the NewBack program for injury prevention and rehabilitation, advanced meditation and breathing, and delving deep into many other aspects of the yogic tradition. I went on to study and certify in yin, restorative, aerial, and Ganja Yoga, with a focus on developing yoga tools for mental health and well-being.

In the spring of 2015 I pioneered heli-yoga in the Okanagan, founding Elevate Heli-Yoga where I treat adventurous students to an unforgettable yoga experience atop a mountain accessed via helicopter. During this year I began my partnership with All You Can Yoga to offer a registered yoga teacher training at the Okanagan campus of UBC which has graduated 22 new yoga teachers in the Elevate Yoga approach. 

I completed my undergraduate degree in Honours Psychology in 2017 and am now working towards a PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of British Columbia Okanagan. My research focuses on altered states of consciousness with a focus on cannabis, and the interplay and crossover between the worlds of psychology and yoga.

In addition, I hold a diploma in Business Administration from Okanagan College with a focus in entrepreneurship and marketing, as well as certification and training in Reiki energy work, tension-release massage, and natural nutrition.

 With a broad understanding of the interconnectedness of the physical, mental, emotional and energetic bodies, I offer a down to earth approach utilizing this understanding to bring the body into balance from the root, and educating my clients with the tools and resources to make lasting change.
