Sabrina Bodden
Sabrina Bodden is an E-CYT-500 who completed her initial 200-hr teacher training through the Madison based Alignment Yoga program with Scott Anderson in 2011-2012, whose teachings are inspired by Eichens & Iyengar Yoga. Almost a decade and 1500 hours of teaching group classes later, Sabrina completed the 300-hr Spiritual Warrior Training through Yoga Farm Ithaca in 2021, learning the teachings of Kundalini from the Raj Yoga lineage of the East, along with deeper explorations of Ayurvedic Medicine, Enneagram Studies and Cycle Guidance. As a Birth Doula & retired Licensed Massage Therapist, Sabrina has gained extensive knowledge of anatomy & physiology, how the human body copes with and heals from stress and injury, and how to connect with people "where they are" to honor each person's needs and abilities. Sabrina has faced chronic pain and debilitating nerve impingement most of her life, due to a genetic connective tissue disorder, combined with Scoliosis and sensory processing issues. Because of her experience with suffering and grief around the loss of function in her body, Sabrina understands that yoga isn't really about what you can or can't do physically, but how your respond to what's happening in each moment. Before discovering Alignment Yoga, Sabrina used a walker, and had little to no use of her right arm. She had to give up her career as a Wedding & Portrait Photographer, and spent years in unbearable pain, losing hope for improvement. Thanks to the focus on physics & physiology offered by the Alignment Yoga program, healing of decades of trauma in the body and mind became possible. Having the privilege of receiving and sharing this practice gives Sabrina a sense of purpose, knowing the difference it can make for each person's life. Sabrina's classes invite students to know and honor their limits, non-judgmentally, and to use the practice to find their way into their own body, rather than trying to force their bodies into any specific shape. There are no expectations in the space where Sabrina shares practice, aside from the willingness to breathe and be curious, you are encouraged to show up as you are, and take the style of practice that serves you best in every moment.
