Sara Harrigan

Sara came to yoga as a natural extension of her professional dance career with Halifax’s Mocean Dance.  What started simply as a physical practice to enhance her training, quickly morphed into a much deeper spiritual connection. Halifax Yoga has been her home studio for over a decade and she has grown here through many roles including student, Energy Exchanger, Teacher Trainee, Teacher Training Mentor and now Teacher.  She has been mentored by Sherry Zak, Coeli Marsh, Angela Jackson and most recently, Sadie Nardini in her Yoga Shred style, a fusion of Yoga and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).

Sara is thrilled to be sharing this style in her HY class, Yoga Conditioning; combining her love of movement, music and fitness.  She believes it is a fun, effective way to increase your strength, boost your energy and have an amazing savasana!
