Teacher Description

Sarena started her journey with movement at the age of 8, when she landed in a dance studio in Reading, Pennsylvania. She quickly fell in love, and decided to pursue dance as a career. This led her to Temple University where she received her BFA in Dance. After college it was effortless for her to slip into a daily yoga practice which took her to Dana Hot Yoga to get her 200 hr teaching certification. She loved the way that mind and body could coalesce through joining breath to movement. Yoga hooked her and she went on to receive two further 70 hour trainings with Shiva Rea and Alex Auder. She began teaching in many different studios, corporate centers, and at Imhotep Charter School while she was based in Philadelphia. Most recently she journeyed to California to gain an Expressive Arts Therapy Certification at Tamalpa. Sarena believes the body is a map of the mind, and that every heartache, joy, desire, and stillness we have ever experienced is stored in the fabric of our skin. She loves to share her passion for movement, and its capacity to unpack the stories that are heavy in our lives.
