"You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should."

Welcome! 

I'm Sara Russell, The Twisted Yogini.

You deserve to feel empowered by your practice. You deserve permission to laugh when you fall, to smile when you succeed, and to rest when you need it. All of these things, I want for you.

 

My goal is to make my students feel successful in their practice. "Success" may mean nailing a handstand, or it may mean recognizing and honoring your limitations and congratulating yourself just for trying.

 

My wish is to share laughter, light, and love with everyone. And I mean everyone. My style is fun, non-judgmental, and supportive. I want to teach my students how to re-connect with their bodies and discover the joy that lies within each and every one of us. 

 

Let's get together, get twisted, and have a laugh.

Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned yogi, I offer an all-inclusive, fun, and empowering class that allows you to master basic poses at your own pace and comfort level. Flow along with music from artists like Van Morrison, Sia, and Joni Mitchell. 

 

The style of yoga I teach is Vinyasa, whereby we create a beautiful flow of poses (asanas) using our breath as a guide for movement.

 

Classes are 60-minutes in length, and include time for: 

- Breath awareness

- Warm up 

- Asana retention

- Active elongation

- Savasana

 

I offer modifications and provide props (blocks and straps) to ensure yoga is accessible to everyone who enters my class. 

 

My classes are small and intimate in order to foster an environment of familiarity, support, and kindness.

Small group yoga classes are conveniently located in Arnold, Maryland - easily accessible from Severna Park, Cape St. Claire and Annapolis and surrounding areas. Private classes can be offered at my location or in your home/at a location of your choosing.

 

This isn't your traditional, studio: I teach in the beautiful Fellowship Hall at Gloria Dei!. Ornate stained glass windows adorn the walls and cathedral ceilings echo the acoustics of music and vocal cues.

 

When childcare is needed, the nursery is just a few steps away, complete with blocks, puzzles, books, and coloring pages.
