Sara Eddy – Owner and Instructor
Sara has been teaching dance fitness since 2007 as well as yoga and barre since 2010. She has been attending dance classes as long as she can remember. While away from family and friends at university she was feeling a little lost until she found a fitness studio that quickly became her home away from home. A few years later she got certified to teach and is grateful to have always been able to find a fitness family wherever she’s moved, from cities all over the US to our beautiful Kelowna, BC.
Having done yoga off and on since her youth, Sara started taking classes at YogaWorks when she lived in Los Angeles. She realized these mindful, alignment based yoga classes were a perfect balance to her regular dance workouts and wanted to be able to share that with her students. Sara completed 500 hours of training within a few years including mentorships with Carmen Fitzgibbon and Jeanne Heileman, and had the opportunity to complete a 75-hour training with world renowned teacher, Maty Ezraty. She loves being able to share this unique experience and lineage with her students at Move & Flow. Whether you come for a yoga class, dance fitness, or barre, you’ll benefit from Sara’s passion for guiding students of all levels through fun safe movement and her friendly, easy-going attitude. Sara has two young children who you might see around the studio “helping out” as well.
