Sarah Trout Martyn, LMT, RYT
Sarah took her first yoga class in 2005. At that time she had just survived a very dark period of her life and was searching for healing. She says, "I will never forget the connection to myself and my breath that I found in my first class, and in particular in my first Savasana. It was absolutely transformative, and I have never looked back." Sarah completed her 200-hour teacher training in 2011 at East Eagle Yoga in Havertown. Sarah enjoys teaching both brand-new beginners, as well as assisting experienced Yogis in deepening and challenging their practice. Sarah's background as a licensed massage therapist gives a unique spin to her classes, and her hope is that her nurturing energy and passion for assisting others in their journey of self-discovery and self-love helps to make each and every one of her classes an opportunity for a renewal of spirit.
Sarah also offers private and semi-private Yoga sessions. These take place during normal office hours. Clients can find up to date class offerings, as well as information about private Yoga sessions here: http://sarahmartyn.
Xandra first discovered yoga when she was living in the Fairmount neighborhood of Philadelphia in 2005. She knew nothing about yoga, was intimidated by the idea of going to a class, and decided to sign up for a private session with Corina Benner at Wake Up Yoga. During that first yoga experience, something shifted in her. She had always avoided exercise and in yoga found something that felt like a natural extension of herself. She signed up for a beginner’s series, and from there her yoga practice grew.
In the years that followed, as she moved back to the suburbs, got married, became a health and wellness coach and a mama, yoga continued to be an important part of her path. She found that she felt her best when she practiced two or three times a week and she discovered in yoga not just a physical exercise practice – yoga became her spiritual home.
After spending years taking classes from teachers including Julie Pogachefsky, Jennifer Nehila, Kayla Fell, and Kate DeRosa Howell, she discovered the common thread that linked them all, and she found her way back to Corina and Wake Up Yoga to complete her 250 hour yoga teacher training in 2015. She has also completed prenatal (with Shiya Furstenau, May 2015) and yin yoga trainings (with Corina Benner, May 2015).
She continues to learn and explore through her own life and practice and she brings that into the safe and sacred space where she teaches, connecting every day experiences to the practice and teachings of yoga.
Xandra has always believed in the power of taking care of ourselves in order to best take care of others, and her yoga practice has shown her that lesson in action as she has watched her family and those around her soak up so much of what she has learned and come to live through yoga.
In addition to teaching, practicing, and immersing herself in yoga, Xandra coaches women along the path of sacred becoming, writes daily, gets to the ocean whenever she can, and spends time with her loving and supportive family – her husband, daughter, and their cat.
