Sarah (Estabrook) Johnston

Sarah’s yoga journey began in the year 2000 when she took her first class.  She immediately felt a connection with the practice and her passion for yoga increased throughout the next decade.  As an elementary school teacher, Sarah found yoga to be a central part of her self-care routine.  The physical practice challenged her body, while the whole practice breathed balance into her life. Sarah began teaching yoga after completing her 200-hour training in 2010 with Mimi Loureiro at O2 Yoga in Boston.  Since then, she has attended workshops and trainings with Beryl Bender Birch, David Swenson, Sue Jones of YogaHOPE, Ame Wren, Kevin Courtney, Josh Summers, and others.  Sarah also worked to merge her passions of teaching yoga and working with children by becoming a ChildLight Yoga certified teacher and a Yoga4Classrooms trainer.  Off the mat, Sarah currently works as an elementary school literacy specialist.  She lives in Portland with her husband in their 1932 house, which they spent three years fixing up while living in it!  Sarah completed her 500-hour certification with Boston Yoga School in June 2017.  In addition, Sarah will take a 50-hour Yin Yoga training with Josh Summers in February 2018.  As a yoga teacher, Sarah focuses on creating a space of increased awareness and peaceful energy for her students while offering intentional sequencing and alignment in the physical poses.
