Loving & Laughing Yogi: Sarah Ezrin

Sarah Ezrin is a soulful and vibrant yoga teacher and student. She recently returned to her home of Los Angeles from a teaching stint in Beirut. Here she shares some wisdom for new yoga teachers and speaks about the benefits of volunteering and travel. Thanks Sarah for the inspiration and the good vibes! 

The word yoga has infinite meaning. If you could define the word “yoga” in one sentence, how would you?

Yoga is unity- unifying the body, mind & spirit, but also each of us to one another.

Sarah Ezrin  |  Brentwood AmbassadorHave you participated in acts of yoga trade or yoga volunteer work?

I love donating private yoga sessions for various charity auctions and teaching at yoga events raising money for different causes. I am an ambassador for the amazing Yoga Gives Back and have had the privilege of doing a few events with them.

How do you think travel influences your yoga practice?

Travel is such an important experience for everyone regardless if they practice yoga or not! It expands our perspective. Yogis believe that the root cause of suffering is ignorance of our true selves. Traveling teaches you not only about various cultures, but also the similarities we have with people who at first may have seemed so different. We are all one and traveling and yoga teaches that.

Do you have any advice/tips for new yoga teachers?

Do your practice and everything will fall into place as it should. I know for many new teachers it is tempting to push practice aside for job opportunities or to lose consistency, but our practice is the source of our teaching. It is also the process through which we get to know and reveal our most authentic selves. And when we are doing our work that reflects back to our students and elevates our career in unimaginablesarah1 ways.


Sarah Ezrin, E-RYT-500, is an energetic and humorous yoga teacher, writer, life coach and teacher trainer based in Los Angeles. With a profound love of travel, Sarah runs around the globe leading trainings, workshops and retreats. For Sarah, yoga is not about the tricks or the postures; it is about discovering and living one’s truth. She believes that life is quick and that it should be spent laughing, with those we love, and doing the things we most enjoy, like yoga!
