Sarah is the proud owner and founder of the Tifton Yoga community. She completed her initial 200-hour yoga teacher training at Asheville Yoga Center 2017 and immediately started teaching in Tifton. She has since completed a variety of workshops in yin yoga, meditation and neuroscience, trauma-informed yoga, chakras, yoga and psychology, vinyasa sequencing, and 220-hour Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training. In 2021, she completed a second 200-hour teacher training as she was seeking clarity to her calling in the opening of Tifton Yoga Center. Sarah’s yogic path is inspired and influenced by her teachers Sierra Hollister of Asheville Yoga Center and Elizabeth McCranie of Centred on Yoga.
Sarah found the light of yoga when she was in a dark place. The practice gave her the space to safely explore her thinking patterns while taking care of body and mind. She found personal responsibility in being the guide in her own healing. It has transformed her life and continues to with every practice on her mat. While most of Sarah’s classes are vinyasa-style, she also enjoys teaching yin as a beautiful way to balance energy within the body by slowing down and opening up.
Sarah is a graduate of Georgia College & State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a Master of Science degree in Health & Human Performance with a focus in Health Promotion and Education. She is a Certified Health Coach and Health Education Specialist.
“I am honored to share this beautiful, transformative practice of yoga with the Tifton community. With love and light.” -Sarah
After years of inconsistent practice, Rachel re-discovered yoga in January 2019 as part of her annual wellness journey when she began taking power yoga classes at her local YMCA. Later that year, she realized that a consistent daily practice helped ease the symptoms of her auto-immune disorder, and she began to branch out into other class offerings. The benefit of daily practice was so profound that Rachel began organizing a lunchtime practice session for her coworkers several times a week, which led to the realization that many of her coworkers could benefit from the tools and techniques of yoga to help with stress and anxiety.
Rachel enrolled in Yoga Teacher Training with the intention of building sequences and leading practices for her coworkers. During the training, however, she realized that she wanted to share the anxiety and stress reduction techniques that she had learned with a larger community.
Rachel’s approach to yoga focuses on breathwork and yoga asana to increase flexibility, and reduce stress and anxiety. Her classes use Yin and restorative yoga techniques, to achieve maximum relaxation and improved mobility.

Paul, also known as "PD", has been practicing yoga for over 5 years. He is passionate about sharing the power of a consistent yoga practice with others, and he loves teaching the Lunch Break class. PD uses direct cues to provide safe ways to move your body through the postures. His classes are great for new and experienced yogis.
Maribel began her yoga practice in 2022 after signing up for a class on a whim. She fell in love with the mindful and steady flow of yoga. Yoga strengthened Maribel’s mind, body, and spirit. It taught her how to ease an often anxious mind. A year later, Maribel received her 200 hour yoga teacher training certificate. Said certificate has enhanced her appreciation for yoga even more and prepared her to serve a community she treasures. When not practicing yoga, she is cuddling with her fur babies (Georgia and Cali), embracing her Hispanic and Southern roots, or taking on a new recipe with her husband, Miguel. Maribel is looking forward to guiding our Tifton Yoga Center yogis in their practice!
Claire discovered yoga in high school and has used it as her workout of choice ever since. Yoga helped to balance the workload of working while going to college full-time. A graduate of Texas A&M University, Claire studied Telecommunications then went on to trade school for makeup and wig design at the Academy of Make Up Arts in Nashville, TN. She uses all six years of schooling to run two businesses; one as a makeup artist and wig maker for live theatre, TV, and film, and the other as a social media manager for small businesses nationally. While juggling two businesses, yoga keeps her healthy and centered as it is such a personal workout experience that can be done anywhere and at any time.
