Once you've found comfort in the principles of touch, it's time to learn to extend your touch beyond the immediate contact. With fluid movement, we dance with lines of tension and energy in the body to disperse stagnation. Coursework will include dynamic Thai, balancing depletion and stagnation, and myofascial releases.

Sarah Yovovich loves nothing more than helping people find their strength and joy. At 13 years old she started coaching gymnastics and tutoring mathematics—in both, helping frustrated people accomplish things they didn’t think they could do. She delighted to see students realize that not only could they do that trick or solve that problem, but it was fun! Not much has changed since then, except that Sarah has studied yoga, massage, acrobatics, and Chinese medicine internationally, gathering a huge set of knowledge about the body, health, and wellness. She’s also amassed thousands of hours of practice as a healer, learning what tools best serve each unique situation and person. As a graduate of the University of Chicago, she brings exceptional analytical training together with compassion, to offer students and clients opportunities to try on new modes of being. With Sarah, you will safely adventure into new territory, physically and emotionally, in order to unleash new strength, insight, and joy.
