Katie has been a dancer of all techniques her whole life. After graduating from college with a degree in BA in Dance/Psychology she worked as a counselor with special needs children. Though difficult this was gratifying so Katie decided to return to school. She received a MA in dance/movement therapy and counseling from Columbia College Chicago in 2007. Katie has been working with child victims of domestic violence for the past 6 years. In 2014, Katie furthered her skills and knowledge by becoming a certified ChildLight yoga instructor. ChildLight Yoga has provided Katie with a heightened ability to engage children through the use of yoga poses and provide an opportunity for children to explore movement in a fun and supportive environment.
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.
