Rio Sawhill

Rio Sawhill finally made his way to a yoga practice in 2013, after years of hearing about its potential for physical well-being. He immediately felt yoga’s ability to heal his heart and mind in the midst of crisis in his personal life, and hasn’t looked back since. He teaches with the intention of the same intuitive heart opening and caring that healed him, developing a steady flow with lengthened postures and pauses to reflect on alignment in different asanas.
