SARAH CREECH

Teaching Style: Motivating, high-energy, and fun!

Hometown: Tyler, TX

Favorite Food: Nutrition is life but balance is key. I love reading cookbooks and cooking to some tunes. Sweet potatoes, green smoothies, anything Thai, street tacos, dark chocolate...all the goodness.

Favorite Yoga Pose: Pincha Mayurasana is my jam lately. I am trying to get upside down and balance more and this tests both my strength and mental ability to stay in the present moment. However, legs up the wall always feels amazing or anything to stretch my hip flexors.
