Sarah Owen,

Sarah Owen was first introduced to yoga as a teenager, at the same time inspired by a strong interest in lucid dreaming and the psychological realms. She went on to study Spanish and to live in Southern Mexico for 3 years in her early twenties before returning to yoga with a passion in 2005. Her love of yin yoga, mindfulness and lucid living was discovered when she met her principle teacher, Sarah Powers, in 2007. Sarah Owen leads yin yoga teacher trainings and workshops in Australia as well as being a mentor to incoming IYI students. Her workshops can be found at numerous well-known yoga studios in Sydney.
