Iyengar Yoga Teacher

Sarah Jane Rawkins

My Story




It was during a trip to Thailand in 1997 that I was first introduced to yoga. From the first class, I was instilled with a deep interest and awe for the practice that still grows to this day. Through studying many different styles, I have come to appreciate the Iyengar system of Yoga the most; particularly the approach of precision, integrity, authenticity and serious discipline.

I now have over 10 years experience teaching and am the owner of Yoga Nieuw Vennep. I completed the 3-year Iyengar Teacher Training program in the Netherlands in 2007. Through further training I received my Intermediate Junior 3 certificate in 2017. I have also completed a 3-year therapeutic course to be able to teach and apply the therapeutic attributes of Iyengar yoga so that I can help and guide people with injuries, illness or physical limitations. I continue to work towards higher levels of practice and teaching taking part in workshops and retreats around the world including visiting the Iyengar Institute in Pune India to study directly with the Iyengars.

I believe Yoga is a lifelong journey of exploration, which is ever evolving... "The more you learn, the more there is to learn, penetrating deeper levels of yourself, your life, and your understanding. I love to share my knowledge and hope to light the spark of inspiration in others as it was once light in me”
