Sam Hagerbaumer

Sam came to yoga after a decade of running half-marathons. Initially hoping yoga could loosen her ever-tight quads, she was delighted to find the calm and centeredness that yoga snuck into her life, plus an all-over fitness that she had never found through running alone. While she hasn’t hung up her running shoes completely, yoga has become a near daily practice that Sam credits with quieting her mind, strengthening her body and lifting her soul.

Sam completed her 200-hour training at Prana Power Yoga Brooklyn. She likes to teach classes that are joyful and athletic, mixing sweat with music and laughter. Sam believes our bodies are our own best teachers, if we are willing to listen closely enough. She has been amazed to see incredible changes in her own life off the mat thanks to yoga – everything from conquering fears to healing old wounds – and hopes to deliver a joyful practice that allows her students the space to connect with their breath and travel their own unique paths.
