Sarah first began practicing yoga in 2002, with Nabil Najjar and Jouhaina Dib in Beirut. In 2007, she moved to London where she studied the Iyengar Yoga principles with Jacqui Brookes and Angelika Grohmann. In 2010, she moved to Paris where she enrolled in a four-year Hatha Yoga teacher training at the Ecole Française de Yoga, with instructors such as Patrick Tomatis, Andrée Maman, Boris Tatzky, Gianna Dupont and Philippe de Fallois. During her training, she also practiced Mysore-style Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with Kia Naddermier, and went on silent meditation retreats in the Vipassana tradition, and in the Zen tradition with Jacques Castermane. At the end of her training, she met internationally acclaimed author and movement therapist Donna Farhi, and has been studying with her on a yearly basis ever since. Sarah has also adapted her practice after several injuries, and during pregnancy.

After her teacher training, Sarah gave regular classes and workshops in various Parisian yoga studios, for adults, kids, pregnant women and people with injuries. In late 2014, she returned to Lebanon where she founded Hamsa Yoga Space, one of Beirut’s most dedicated and prominent studios. In 2016, she collaborated with the IMOVE Foundation and co-facilitated mindfulness trainings in refugee camps. In 2017, she trained with Maddie McMahon in order to become a childbirth doula, and has been supporting expectant mothers ever since.
