Space, connection & unity through movement and breath.
I'm Sara Villamil. I live in Calgary with my husband Jeff and our three beautiful kids. Being with my family is my favourite place to be. I am currently teaching online and am incredibly grateful for this opportunity to build a virtual studio and community.
I am committed to honouring the ancient roots of yoga and the heart of the practice, which is unity. The essence of yoga is love and compassion for all beings through our words, actions and thoughts. Yoga is much more than just physical movement, it is social justice and selfless service to those most in need. As a practitioner and teacher, I am grateful to share what I learn. I bow down to my teachers, their teachers and all those that came before to help inform and inspire the yoga we practice today. Yoga is the journey to oneself, to recognizing the divine within, so that we may recognize and honour it in others.
Always fascinated with the possibilities of human movement and a pull toward to healing modalities, yoga felt like a natural fit. After taking my first teacher training in Calgary, I went on to study at YogaWorks in New York. Since then I have taken and taught many teacher trainings, studied under well-known yoga teachers and created a Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga School.
I teach a variety of classes including flow-based movement practices, prenatal, postnatal and restorative. The yoga teacher I am today continues to be moulded by the people I have had the opportunity to teach; different ages, stages, experiences and circumstances. My style is an extension of my personal practice; humble, curious, spiritual, healing and always growing.
In the spirit of reconciliation, I would like to acknowledge that I live, work and play in the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), as well as the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.
