EllieI wanted to express my gratitude and many thanks for your gift of sharing your yoga teachings at the recent Chopra Center program, Seduction of Spirit.Your wisdom and presence made such a profound impact on me, and I'm sure to others. Experiencing your grace, wisdom, and strength have been a life-changer for me.Being overweight and out of shape I was quite a bit intimidated to attend the yoga class.... and so grateful that I did. I became completely focused on your words, the wisdom you shared, your elegant movements, and calm teaching style, and I experienced such a delightful and unexpected moving meditation. After a couple days of morning yoga, I quickly noticed that my body felt incredibly open and light, more so than it has in many years, in fact, since I was a child. Remembering and loving that feeling, you've motivated me to have a daily yoga practice. Thank you. (And if I lived in New York I would be a regular at Ishta Yoga!)with deep gratitude and much love,
I was diagnosed with breast cancer and the BRCA2 gene mutation in 2011. I have had many surgeries over the last six years. My last surgery was this past March, and it has been a long and challenging recovery. My body has been through so much, and I did not think I would ever be able to do yoga again. I cannot even get into Child’s Pose without being in pain. But then an angel came into my life . . . the very special Sarah Finger. Sarah taught me to breathe, relax and adapt to yoga poses that felt amazing to my body. Sarah’s Love, compassion, empathetic listening and expertise have changed my life. I will be forever grateful.

Sara has been helping me with my yoga practice for about 10 years. What I have gained in self awareness, acceptance, self healing and an understanding of universal love and equanimity far surpasses my physical yoga practice. She has been my most important teacher and healer I am forever grateful for her incredibly loving force in my life.

Sarah is an extraordinary teacher: warm and welcoming, involved and caring, naturally empathic, and clear in her instructions. During group classes and in private lessons, her approach is always remarkably fresh and somehow attuned to what her students need. I consistently leave her classes with a sense of balance and happiness that last for days--till my next class with Sarah! This might be explained as the result of expanded mindfulness, improved posture and fuller breaths, but to me It feels a bit like magic.

Thank you for sharing your very raw and real story of self empowerment. I found it very powerful, poignantly articulating vulnerable material with such bravery.
We all come for one reason or another usually to heal something and I have found my home to do my work. I am so grateful for your teachings and having the privileged to practice with you.
