Other playlists cover a variety of challenges and intentions including Yoga for Weight Loss, Postnatal Yoga, Yoga for Detox and Digestion and Desk Yoga. She has also ordered some videos by length.

What to Expect From Sarah Beth

Sarah Beth’s videos are shot with one locked-off camera so you can see her full body, usually at a slight distance. She then records a voice-over to describe the different poses and variations she’s practicing. She used to record her videos at ONE Yoga in Denver where she also taught. However, since 2017 she’s been working with a production team to film and edit her videos, and she now shoots against a well-lit, bright white background, helping shift focus entirely to her and her practice without distraction.

Alongside her workout videos, Sarah Beth also vlogs, sharing stories and updates on her personal life and her family. She lives in Denver, Colorado with her husband and two young sons, Roman and Leo.

Prior to teaching yoga, she worked as a chiropractic assistant and a model. She says her modelling experience helped her to feel natural in front of the camera. Sarah Beth has the autoimmune disease Ulcerative Colitis, making stress and anxiety relief a top priority for maintaining her health.

Sarah Beth’s Yoga Teaching

Sarah Beth has grown a devoted online following through regular posting on YouTube and social media, and by connecting with her audience on a personal level. She also gives insight into her lifestyle choices and routines outside of her regular workouts, creating a more holistic approach to practicing yoga and meditation, and guidance on how this plays into our daily lives.

“Thank you for taking the time to make so many helpful videos that provide proper guidance for any level. I use them nearly every day and share them with anyone who is interested in yoga. Also, thank you for making them available to the public, there are so many people who can't afford to go to a yoga studio or don't have the time to make it to one. You are a bright light in the world, keep shining SarahBeth!” - YouTube

“I follow SarahBeth Yoga on YouTube, her stuff for beginners is *very* gentle and I have really enjoyed picking up the practice again after 20 years.” - Twitter

Watching recorded videos such as those created by Sarah Beth can be a great introduction to yoga, helping you discover what type of practice is right for you, while learning the basics in a low-cost, low-pressure way. However, practicing with a teacher either in a studio or via a livestream will help to grow your practice, strengthen your knowledge and keep you engaged and motivated.
