After having a very active childhood and playing various sports, Sierra was introduced to yoga in 2009, taking a semester as a college P.E. credit. As her practice solidified and she became more invested in sacred arts (yoga, philosophy, and astrology) it was time to deepen her practice and commitment. Her first training was a 200-hour foundational teacher training through LA-based YogaWorks with Anne Van Valkenburg. Feeling empowered by her accomplishment, she continued to the next level by completing her 500-hour YogaWorks professional program, mentored by Ellie Burke in Richmond, VA. Most recently, Sierra completed a 6-month study and workshop for trauma-informed yoga called “The Goddess Within”.
Sierra’s classes are right at the intersection of physical alignment and spiritual expansion, sprinkled into powerful flows, and layered over a loving undertone. Most importantly, a sense of self-discovery is encouraged in each of her classes.
In her personal life, yoga serves as the catalyst for constant change and exploration. Yoga has provided refinement and discernment to approach every day with truth and open-heartedness.
“Life is always providing substance. It’s up to you to transform it into gold.”
Sierra Garrett instructs the following:
Restorative Yoga is a slow all-levels class designed to balance an active practice or decompress after a stressful day. Using props, postures are held for a longer period of time to initiate a deep relaxation of the body and mind. Classroom is not heated.
Foundational Flow is the bridge between Basics and Infinity Flow. This class allows each student to flow thru a series of moderately challenging poses. Each series has been created to work through lines in the body building strength, flexibility, and endurance. Classroom is not heated.
A slow paced class, designed as a class focused on alignment and adjustments for foundational poses. Also perfectly aligned as the next step past "Beginners", to continue to introduce the foundational elements of yoga. Perfect for anyone looking to continue to hone their new practice (and perfectly suitable if you haven't been to our beginners class yet too!) and excellent for rehabilitation, recovery, or just not feeling up to a power flow on a given day! All levels welcome. Classroom is not heated.
Curious about yoga philosophy? Still want to move your body? This is the class for you! We will dive deeper into the yoga sutras, myths and legends, pranayama, all tied into a complete flowing practice.
This class is well-suited for all-levels, but some knowledge of sun salutations and basic postures is recommended. Classroom temperature is unheated; 75-78 degrees.
