Sarcha has the most wonderfully compassionate and encouraging approach to teaching yoga, making it accessible to all manner of people. She is pragmatic and realistic when it comes to recognising students’ limitations, whether they be due to age, illness or injury, and this is reflected in the diversity of students in her classes and overall mix of students, class types and teachers at Yogahub in general. She recognises the value in practising different forms of yoga and as such has gathered a formidable group of teachers into the Yogahub stable. She is a brilliant practitioner in her own right, with many years training and experience under one of the most highly regarded and experienced Ashtanga teachers in Australia. If the Yogahub philosophy is carried into Sarcha’s teacher training program then it will be unique, well-informed and exciting.
I started in Sarcha’s Mysore classes as a beginner to yoga. I could not even touch my toes and I remember feeling embarrassed at my inability to perform the basic postures and intimidated by how good everyone else in the class was.
However, Sarcha made me feel so comfortable in her class, I soon forgot about what I couldn’t do and focused on what I could do. Sarcha teaches with confidence, patience and dedication. She is able to recognise each individuals level of practice and adjust the postures accordingly. It is obvious Sarcha has a passion for teaching yoga and her knowledge is fantastic. Sarcha inspires me to be better at yoga and I always look forward to practicing in such a supportive environment.
Thank you Sarcha, you are simply amazing!
Sarcha was my first mysore yoga teacher when I started as a beginner yogi 3 years ago and remains my teacher today. When I first stepped onto the mat, I felt very vulnerable and self conscious. She recognised this and I was able to relax under her non judgemental guidance. Sarcha has a kind, intelligent, gentle yet firm teaching manner. She seems to know what I am capable of and yet gently pushes me as I negotiate my yogic path. She is holistic in her approach to adjust the practice to my capability or injury. Sarcha is an inspirational teacher and I would recommend her teaching to any yogi of any level of experience.
There are plenty of yoga teachers out there but few have Sarcha’s deep knowledge of yoga and her generosity of spirit. I started yoga over 12 years ago but it wasn’t until I started Mysore practice with Sarcha a few years ago that I embraced yoga and truly understood its value in my life and that of others. Sarcha’s teaching is gentle, yet she has the insight to challenge you when you need it. Sarcha has helped me understand how to work with my anatomical restrictions through myofascial release and posture modifications. Sarcha’s lifelong commitment to the eight limbs of yoga is a rare occurrence in today’s world, but I am truly thankful to her for the knowledge and wisdom she has passed on to me as my yoga teacher in the few short years I have known her.
