I couldn’t recommend you choose this yoga teacher training more. Sarcha’s knowledge and her passion to share it is a privilege. Her quietly confident nature is something to learn from in itself and to be in her presence is to know you are in the very best hands. Team this with her humility and sense of humour and your yoga journey will be ignited. The modules are thorough and the schedule considered and accessible. The sutra and Gita teachings were/are my favourite and have taken my understanding of yoga to another level. Thank you for your mentorship Sarcha. I have learnt so much from you and have felt loved and supported the entire time.
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.
I spent many years waiting to find a teacher to do a teacher training course. Sarcha did not disappoint. Her depth of knowledge and passion for the practise is extraordinary. Not only has the teacher training taught me a new language that I can hopefully impart to others but it has most definitely deepened my own practice. I have been able to expand my knowledge in ways that only come from a great practitioner and learnt most importantly, to extend empathy and compassion to myself and hopefully anyone whom I might have the privilege to teach. I came away from every session filled with new information to fill my own practice and knowledge to pass on to others. I highly recommend working with Sarcha if you have the opportunity.
Sarcha is an extraordinary teacher with a wealth of knowledge and experience. She goes above and beyond to support her students, give them the tools they need to express their individuality and excel in their teaching. I am grateful to have the opportunity to learn from her!
I had the privilege of completing my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training under Sarcha’s guidance, over the course of almost a year. The program was very comprehensive, covering much more of Yoga than just the asana, the physical postures. There was no rush, with sessions being spread out to allow absorption and practice of concepts and techniques before moving on. The full spectrum of Yoga would take more than a lifetime to master, however this course gave me a wonderful exposure to the key concepts and a solid basis on which to continue my yoga journey. Thank you, Sarcha.
When I started my Ashtanga yoga beginners’ course with Sarcha and her team in January, shoulder stands and head stands for the first time at the age of 52 were the last thing on my mind. Whilst I have a long way to go, I am wrapped with where I have progressed to so far thanks to Sarcha and Yogahub. I’ve gone from unable to reach my toes with my fingertips to palms on the ground, and so many other improvements.
There is something special about the energy in the room at Yogahub, you need to try it to appreciate it, yoga at home is no comparison. It’s like going into a time warp where 90 minutes goes by so quickly as you go about your lengthening and strengthening routine. It’s so rewarding when you feel yourself reach a new milestone in your effort to become better at the practice. Sarcha is always in the room keeping an eye on your performance, her knowledge of yoga is immeasurable. The way I see it, if there was a black belt grading for yoga, I’d say Sarcha would be a 5th Dan black belt and me, a humble yellow belt for now. My progress has been enhanced with Sarcha’s coaching and precise explanation of how to take each posture to the next level.
Prior to yoga I had issues which brought on pain in my lower back and in the rotator cuffs in my shoulders. Now I feel these issues are almost non-existent and it’s all thanks to Yoga. It’s the best form of exercise I have ever done, and my only regret is I wish I had started it when I was 20… and I’ve gained at least 20 metres in my golf drive! Thanks Sarcha.
Thanks Sarcha for your sensitive, intuitive adjustments which come from years in the game as well as who you be, as it were. At this particular time, I can access more space and relax more deeply… that is gold.
As a student/client/customer… you listen to and addressed my particular request, beautifully so. So I would say a deeply personalised service, no matter what your experience. If you are looking to learn foundations or beginners, or you are an experienced yogi or you would like to simply dip your toe in, you can. It’s a wonderful place to feel nurtured and challenged, whatever you choose and both can be on the same day. Sarcha and her team of experienced teachers are fully present as they offer a variety of all things yoga at YogaHub. And I mean all things: Yin, Philosophy, Hatha, Sound, Ashtanga, Flow, Nidra, Mysore, Sanskrit, emanating out of Sarcha ‘s Training in classical yoga and wish to invite people to experience deep peace and joy within which is a natural by product of the daily practice of yoga. See and experience for yourself.

Thank you for the most amazing year. This year with your teachings, guidance and encouragement I have felt very blessed. Thank you for being such a sturdy mentor. You have taught from the heart and passed on a piece for us to nourish, grow, and share.
