Accommodations

This Italian Center sits just above the sea. A stroll through the small village below puts you right into the marina, strewn with colorful fishing boats and cafes. At the center, you can stroll among the typical Sorrento lemon garden or curl up on a cozy couch in one of the many corridors for a contemplative rest. From most everywhere in the convent, one can enjoy a view of the Naples Gulf, Mount Vesuvio, Capri, Ischia, and Procida.

Sarah Memme

Sarah has always been involved in physical activity, but not until a severe rugby injury did she turn to yoga over 10 years ago. The subtle yet profound shifts inspired by attending yoga classes with teachers that she began to connect with eventually led her to continue on the path to teach yoga. Sarah’s classes reflect the passion she has for life and for yoga; she does this through playful challenges, fun energy, ansarahmemmed succulent stretches. Sarah likes to focus on bringing awareness to alignment and finding an understanding of doi

Sarah has obtained her 200-hour Hatha Teacher Training from Kula Yoga, 30-hour YHot certification from YYoga Teacher’s College – and holds various certifications in Restorative Yoga. Sarah continues to evolve through growing her knowledge completing her personal training specialist certification, courses in Myofacial Release – and working towards Pre/Post Natal certifications.

“I have been practicing yoga with Sarah for the last few months and have had nothing but a wonderful experience. She provides an experience that is energetic, positive, and extremely motivating–pushing you to your own individual limits and leaving you feeling your best every time. I have nothing but great things to say about Sarah and her teaching–she’s definitely helped me find my new passion!”

“When I first came to Sarah’s flow yoga class I didn’t expect much of it. But I was so wrong. These classes have completely changed my attitude to yoga and given me so many unexpected revelations about my body and the way I use it. I’m really thankful to Sarah for all the knowledge she has shared with me; she has made yoga fun for me!”

Christine Noonan

Christine Noonan

Christine prides herself on sharing yoga practices for real life with her students. She believes that yoga has something to offer every body. Understanding that people come to yoga for different reasons, Christine wants to be there to support each person on their unique journey. With a background in massage therapy and an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, she focuses on guiding students to get the most out of every pose through clear language and an emphasis on alignment. Through the use of creative sequencing and theming, students are offered an opportunity to calm, connect to, and revitalize the body, mind and breath.

Christine2Christine came to her practice as many do – out of necessity. She was working a stressful job in New York City and found peace in a gentle hatha class. After moving to Vancouver, she began to get deeper into her practice and, arriving at a crossroads in her career, made the leap into teacher training. While there were difficult moments, struggling to master poses amongst long-time practitioners, Christine persisted and discovered that her dharma was to share the gift of yoga with others.

“I know I can’t change or eliminate the sadness and sorrows of the world,” she says, “but I do believe that yoga is my vehicle to help others facilitate even the smallest of changes to help make the world a better place.”

Christine has obtained her 200-hour Hatha/Vinyasa and 70-hour YHot certifications from YYoga Teacher’s College in Vancouver, BC. She continues to expand her knowledge of yoga and currently holds certificates and for Yin, Restorative, and Spin.

“Over the past year, I have noticed an interesting pattern in my schedule: it seems as if my schedule revolves around when Christine is teaching. No matter how busy my week, I know that Christine’s classes are non-negotiable. She really understands the human body and is able to make suggestions so that I always get the most out of my yoga practice. Christine understands that people come to her class for a whole host of reasons: a workout, a way to decompress, or a chance to overcome physical challenges. Christine structures her classes so that everyone’s objectives are met, and all the students leave feeling simultaneously relaxed and energized.

Christine is amazing! I always look forward to having her as my yoga teacher. She is an inspiring teacher and I can really feel her passion for what she does. Christine leads us into each pose with great guidance, interacts with everyone in the class, and makes me feel welcome and that I am exactly where I should be. She has an excellent understanding of yoga and her devotion to each person is uplifting and very much appreciated.”

“My husband and I have been attending Christine’s classes for a couple of years now. She is a terrific teacher and makes yoga accessible to all. She is very approachable and does her best to provide individual attention to every participant. We feel stronger and more flexible after her classes and hate to miss them. Her calm and friendly manner inspires confidence and ensures every client, regardless of age and fitness level, feel as if they can take her class and benefit from it. We would highly recommend Christine as an excellent yoga instructor.
