200 Hour CYT, Event Planner
Sara Martinez was drawn to holistic wellness in 2008 when she saw the differences it made for her dog with severe hip dysplasia. Her holistic wellness journey brought her to yoga in 2012 when she started to practice. For several years her practice came and went, but she noticed that she never felt better than when she was practicing regularly. She decided she wanted to help others feel the changes that were possible with yoga.
Sara’s intention when teaching students is to help them find themselves while on their mats. Her goal is to see them grow in their practice and their lives through breath, movement and balance on and off the mat.
Sara has been working in event management/planning for over 13 years, so it was natural for her to combine her love for events and wellness to create topic focused retreats. Her goal with River of Wellness is to create an environment where like minded women can come together to nurture their body, mind and spirit.
When Sara is not teaching or organizing retreats, she enjoys spending time gardening, playing and relaxing with her family on their farm in Chebanse, IL.
