Sarah Bentz

Sarah Bentz is the Director of Living Yoga in Johannesburg, (South Africa’s only affiliate Jivamukti Yoga studio) and a 300-hour, Certified Jivamukti teacher. In 2008, after 5 years of practicing yoga, she left a career in the South African film industry to dedicate her life to teaching and practicing yoga – her true calling. Yoga has had and continues to have such a profoundly positive impact on her own life that she wants to share what she has experienced with as many others as she can.

She draws on ancient yogic texts like the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras and her own experiences of Yoga, Buddhism, Vipassana meditation, love of music, dance and life in general to teach mentally and physically uplifting and challenging classes. She continues to study and practice so she can continue to give genuine and authentic teachings.

She is eternally grateful to her beloved teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life and Jeffrey Cohen for inspiring her along this path to liberation though compassion for all beings. She is also deeply indebted to Cherryl Duncan for her invaluable teachings, her love, support and guidance and for introducing her to Jivamukti Yoga. If there is anything of any value in Sarah’s classes, it is because of the gifts she has received from these beautiful teachers.
