What is Massage Therapy?
Massage Therapy brings oxygen and nutrients to the body tissues and improves circulation. It relieves tension and pain in the muscles and the joints which leads to deeper relaxation. One becomes more flexible and comfortable in their bodies.
NAYC has two wonderful Massage Therapists:

Sara Foster is a licensed massage therapist in Arizona and has been previously licensed in Washington State. She graduated from the Moscow School of Massage in Moscow, Idaho, in 2006. Sara has just moved to Flagstaff to attend Northern Arizona University in the Physical Therapy Doctorate program. She is excited to be providing massage therapy at Northern Arizona Yoga center while she studies physical therapy in the beautiful setting of Flagstaff.
Sara has her yoga roots in the Iyengar and Anusara traditions and has been practicing yoga since 2000. She credits her love of using props and her focus on allignment to her Iyengar teacher in Idaho. Studying Anusara in the last three years has made her own yoga practice glow, and she loves to share that glow with others. Anusara’s focus on universal principles of movement, it’s acceptance of all that we experience, and it’s playfulness really speak to her. Sara enjoys helping people learn about their body and their strength, and so, as a self proclaimed learn-a-holic, she has now entered a path to integrate her massage and yoga work as a physical therapy student here at NAU.
