I began my quest, seeking solace and peace from my restless mind, trying my first Yoga video in hopes of a nights sleep. As I stepped onto my conscious path I began by taking a look at my issues of self-worth. Instead of playing the victim at every turn, I started taking responsibility for my growth. Instead of asking why me, in the afternoon of my life I ask, Why not at least try? I had nothing to lose at age 37 as I embarked on a new segment of my life. With an attitude of adventure and tenaciousness, I stepped forward into the unknown.
With my authentic self peeking out, I look to allow myself to "be" the love I was always searching for outside myself. As I am learning the joy of loving myself and becoming the person I would like to be around, I marry for the third time. This is where my life begins, again. I open to the possibility of living my dream life. “What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?” In the afternoon of my life, I take a chance. I quit a 20-year career of managing my own salon and begin to teach Yoga full time. With my student’s request and my husband’s support and talent we create our first yoga DVD. With a passion to share what I loved and without a clue to what we were doing, we met every producer in town to sell our show as a TV program. Not knowing what we were doing became our advantage and each producer like guardian angels, guided us another step of the way, always meeting the right person at the right time. We learn the ins and outs with practice and my husband eventually, patiently teaches me to edit the entire show. With a desire to expand I open my mind to the next step, syndication. In a process of clearing and letting go, “Yoga In Wisconsin” eventually becomes the internationally syndicated TV program, “Happy Yoga with Sarah Starr.”
With a one year old and teen, we take every day, moment by moment. Parenting, following your dreams, being a loving partner and still having time for fun becomes an intricate dance of love and understanding for all involved.
Coming soon, a new audio book, “Be It Live It Love It,” based on my daily blog, including all the tools and ideas that keep me moving in the direction of joy and ease.
Sarah encourages her students to relax, breath and smile, as they become the witness of their thoughts, worries and distracting mind dialogue. "If your not having fun, you're not doing Yoga."

Breathe and remember, it is up to you to find your song to sing. “It’s not your job to make everyone happy. It’s their job to be happy. It’s your job to make you happy.” It’s the same story the stewardess told me when I flew with our toddler the first time. She looked me in the eye and said point blank, “You need to put your mask on first and then his. Do you got it?” I had heard this analogy many times before, but never for real. It stuck. If I am not mindful enough to stay connected… Read more.

How do you feel about getting more out of life than you currently do? Can I ask you if you’ve found it harder than you thought it would be to achieve all you’ve wanted in life? Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a simple way you could learn to think that made it easier to succeed and get what you want, than it was to struggle and eventually fail… Can you imagine it being easier to succeed than to fail? Too good to be true isn’t it? Well not if the way it’s taught is completely different to anything else you’ve tried before… Please don’t misunderstand me, the techniques you are about to learn are similar, maybe even the same. But what’s different is the way it is taught and the way you learn. If you’d like to try ‘something very different’ for yourself… Check out for free the first five chapters of my friend Andy Shaw’s book
