NOELIA INSA SATORRE
I’ve been 20 years practicing yoga. I practiced in Spain, while studying law and philology. I graduated and worked as both: lawyer and Literature teacher. But I never left my yoga practice.
Everything changed when I left Spain to live in the United States. In San Francisco I began to discover new styles of yoga: Iyengar, Vinyasa, Bikhram, Aerial yoga. I was amazed to see that everyone does yoga there. And I began to practice more assiduously than ever, wandering in all studies of San Francisco and some of Marin County, doing workshops, meeting new teachers every week.And the overnight I became a fan of yoga, which could hardly wait until the next day to keep practicing.
In the midst of this turmoil, questions arose: what is all this? And what has to do with what I’ve been practicing so far? Is it just fitness disguised as spiritual quest, or vice versa? Does it keep any relationship with the yoga practiced in the East? And above all, what is it that makes it so addictive?
So I decided to embark on intensive training to help me find answers and discover the philosophy behind mere physical practice of asanas. I chose one of the best studios of San Francisco (The Yoga Garden of San Francisco) and I jumped.
I have been fortunate to study with some of the best teachers in the world: Jon Isaacs, Katrin Kutner, Sonya Genel, Sean Feit, Jean Mazzei, David Nelson, Marisa Torriggino, Michelle Myhre, Darren Main, Pete Guinosso, John Friend and Desi Springer, Anthony Grim Hall… took them all in the heart forever. For them only one word: thanks.

Sara’s passion for yoga begun as a student of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga whilst living in London. Shortly after returning to Spain she trained to be a yoga teacher, studying at the Yoga Center of Madrid. Having made the move from ‘student to teacher’ and after teaching for a number of years, Sara became interested in the concept of using Yoga as therapy to help alleviate specific medical & physical needs of her students. So, having successfully completed in-depth Yogatherapy training in 2008, Sara is now able to call upon her extensive knowledge to help you enjoy a yoga practice that is right for you & your body.
