2016 Summer Instructor

  • Sarah Slider Image


Sarah is a student at UW-Madison, studying Economics and English Lit. If she's not on a yoga mat, you can usually find her outside: Sarah loves camping, hiking, running, paddleboarding, and climbing trees. She is a big sister, a coffee addict, a doughnut enthusiast… you get the picture!

Sarah began teaching yoga almost three years ago, and has been a student of the practice for almost five years. She was trained and mentored as a yoga and Pilates instructor through UW-Madison Division of Recreational Sports in 2013, and for the past two years has helped train and mentor new instructors through the same program.

In addition to teaching students, staff, and community members on campus, Sarah also volunteer as a yoga teacher at Emerson Elementary School. Teaching mindfulness to youngsters has made her passionate about drawing out the playful and curious side of our yoga practice in every class she teaches, no matter participants' ages or experience levels.

Sarah fell in love with SUP yoga two years ago, the very first time she tried it! Practicing yoga on a SUP board makes the challenge of staying present in your practice so much more tangible: if you aren’t in the moment, you are in the water!

Sarah recently attended Gillian Gibree’s Standup Paddleboard Training in San Diego, and received her Level 1 WPA and SUP Yoga certifications; She is excited to present fun, safe, all-levels SUP yoga classes to yogis here in Madison.

Whether you are rolling out your mat on the Terrace or hopping on a paddleboard, you will find the empowerment and peace that comes with practicing outdoors. We hope you’ll join us for some Mendota meditation, some paddleboard warriors, and a savasana under the sun!
