About The Author:

Sarahjoy Marsh is a vibrant, compassionate catalyst for transformation to those that suffer from addictions—in particular eating disorders. A sought after teacher of teachers, with a master's in counseling, she has been training yoga teachers, yoga outreach volunteers, and mental health providers—including clinical psychologists and socials workers—in yoga therapy tools for 26 years.

Sarahjoy's teachings are informed by personal life events, including serious injury from a car accident, resulting in a hip replacement at 42 and early life struggles with disordered eating behaviors.

Committed to supporting marginalized populations and using yoga for social justice, Sarahjoy founded two non-profits. Living Yoga brings yoga to prisons, alcohol and drug rehab centers, and transitional facilities. DAYA Foundation teaches yoga and mindfulness tools to those with addiction, anxiety or depression; medical issues such as cancer, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease; and social or financial constraints.

With a masters degree from Lesley College, Sarahjoy is a regular retreat teacher at Kripalu Yoga Center in Western MA and Breitenbush Hot Springs in OR and leads annual international yoga retreats to India. She resides in Portland, OR and maintains a thriving schedule of classes, teacher trainings, and private consults.
