Not only is Yogahub a beautiful, peaceful and supportive place to practice but the sense of community that Sarcha works so tirelessly to create is one of the many things that sets Yogahub apart from any other studio that I have attended. Her skill level and dedication to her practice is inspiring in itself, however it’s Sarcha’s dedication and generosity of time and spirit with her students that is truly extraordinary. Her teaching method is an equal mix of perceptiveness, compassion and firmness and her commitment to technique and individualised guidance and adjustments is clear. Sarcha has encouraged both acceptance of my body’s physical limits while equally challenging me. Under her guidance and teachings I have learnt lessons that can be taken into everyday life and seen significant growth in my physical and spiritual practice as well as my overall mindset and mental health.
Sarcha is an extraordinary Mysore yoga teacher, and a very likeable human! She creates an atmosphere of warmth and compassion, but also directs students towards progressing their practice. It is clear Sarcha can distinguish the abilities and challenges of my body as distinct from those around me. And she is also talented at attuning and responding to fluctuations over time within our individual bodies (and minds!) I believe she can see, and feel in her hands on adjustments, subtleties that would be imperceivable to most other yoga teachers. I highly recommend Sarcha and her Yogahub studio to everyone from absolute beginners to those who already have an advanced practice. I am very grateful for your guidance this year and am looking forward to more Mysore practice under your watchful eye in 2020.
Sarcha has a warmth and humility that makes being in her presence an absolute joy. This coupled by her immense knowledge and dedication to her own yoga practice makes for a teaching experience which not only perfects the body but enriches the soul.
Like many of us, I’ve had a fractious relationship with my body for much of my life. I found Sarcha and Yogahub right when I was ready to start accepting what my body can do, rather than being frustrated at what it can not. Sarcha is both gentle and uncompromising in her approach in equal measure, which has given me the confidence and motivation to keep returning to class – and working towards improving my practice. It’s no small exaggeration to say in a few short months my relationship with my body has transformed through my time with the YogaHub, not least that I am no longer a regular at the physiotherapist as many old injuries from a lifetime of competitive sport have started to resolve.
I wanted to say thank you so much for all your support while I have been at Yogahub. I have learnt so much from you and can’t believe how much you and yoga have changed me for the better – I’m sure you hear this from all your students, but it’s true! I’m so gutted and sad to be leaving. The warm, family atmosphere at Yogahub and your personal kindness and knowledge have meant so much to me.
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 three 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.
