About Yogi Junker
Sara Junker - Yoga Teacher
Like many people I was drawn to Yoga as simply a new way to exercise. My mind was bored and my feet were tired of running in circles or uphills. I hated the gym and the mindless hours on the elliptical. I could never commit to consistency. The group fitness rooms always terrified me.(What if everyone was watching? What if I messed up? Will I have to talk to people?) Finally, after trying a few classes for a few years, I found my home and I never looked back. I tried all styles of yoga from Yin to Vinyasa. I was moved to that magical yogic place of tears disguised as sweat during a vinyasa class and I knew I wanted to know more.
I completed my 200 hour YTT Jonny Kest ciriculum at Lifetime Fitness in Roseville and I continue to attend workshops and trainings along with my daily practice.
I will always be a student of yoga, though, I do enjoy teaching. Sharing my passion through teaching inspires my self esteem. Taking a look within, without judgement but acceptance, is something I still have to remind myself of daily. It's a far cry from the girl that looked longingly from the elliptical into the group fitness room scared of the things I didn't know, the "what if's" and worried about my appearance or speaking to new people.
Being humble and having humility has allowed my connections in my personal life, family, friends and even with strangers to deepen. Most importantly, through yoga, I have enhanced my life and relationship with myself.
I hope to invoke, rouse, or even frustrate someone just enough so that they may find their yoga too. It is so much more than what (the Asanas) the body can do. Yoga speaks to our souls, our inner light, our inner voice, and asks " what do you find when you look within for the answers?"

My greatest challenges have become my greatest gifts.
I currently teach at Pulse Power Yoga , Sol Flow Studios, Ohana Moon, On Point Body and Hot Yoga Club Granite Bay. I have a variety of Vinyasa, Yin, slow flow and beginners or private lessons as well. I am familiar with many styles and modifications for injury, advanced or beginners. Feel free to contact me!
200 HR. YTT from Johnny Kest influenced and trained teachers at Lifetime Fitness.
Self Acceptance, Gratitude, and Contentment for everyday, because that to me, sounds like true freedom.
I dream that I may be like my mentors. The Lighthouse.
Holding fast and strong. Steady and bright. So that I may guide to shore the ships lost at sea by simply being me.
To be the light in the dark.
