Associate Lecturer, Dance


BA, Math/Philosophy, Alverno College


Sara Arends Haggith is an Intermediate level Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT). She teaches various levels of classes at Riverwest Yogashala, a nonprofit yoga center in Milwaukee, as well as an Introductory Iyengar Yoga course at UW-Milwaukee. She began studying Iyengar Yoga in 2006, while attending Alverno College, where she earned a BA in Mathematics and Philosophy.

In yoga, she found her love of science and philosophy uniting, giving her an opportunity to listen to her mind and body, and respond with compassion. This challenging practice has helped Sara build strength and confidence, and given her a tool to understand and navigate the stresses of daily life. She studies regularly with Senior Iyengar teachers Hong Gwi-Seok and Chris Saudek.
