Therapeutic Private Yoga
“When I first came to Sarah Tacy for yoga I was a non-believer… I had tried other instructors and mediums, yet none had Sarah’s incredible ability to find my greatest weaknesses and turn them into strengths.
Sarah is as intuitive a person as I’ve ever met. She truly understands the human condition. Her perceptions are spot on and her feedback after listening is invaluable. If she has a suggestion or idea she always follows up with research, information and tips. She doesn’t just talk, she does.
Sarah knows her craft and then some. She’s an expert in the body, physiology, and I’d even say psychology. She studies her craft and takes it to the highest level, giving her clients the utmost confidence that they’re in the best hands, which is crucial, when it comes to their physical and mental health. I always walk out feeling rejuvenated and ready to start my day. Sarah is a superstar.”

“The recovery for a double leg osteotomy feels like being in a long, dark, lonely tunnel. I was totally dependent and vulnerable. My commitment to healing couldn’t have happened without Sarah. She focuses on my entire body, clarifies goals, and adapts exercises to help expedite the recovery process. Sarah’s encouragement, commitment, understanding of the process, knowledge of anatomy and the body/mind connection, and her delight in seeing me improve is keeping me going and making me stronger. Through her guidance I find myself more aware of helpful and hurtful stresses (mind/body), empowering me to reflect and help myself. I always feel better after my sessions. This is something I can do this for the rest of my life.”
~ Marie Pindus
“Sarah is one of the most talented instructor’s I have ever encountered. She is patient, knowledgeable and seems to have a unique understanding of how the human body reacts to different movement. She has had the ability to look at my particular weaknesses and devise a routine specific to my needs. I find I am much stronger and more flexible which has helped everything from my golf game to my posture… She has given me techniques to help me deal with many different stresses in my life and consistently offers useful insight to help me achieve a happier and healthier life. I never thought I would be such an advocate of Yoga and the prime reason is Sarah. She truly is a gifted and inspirational person.”
~ Rob Mastrantonio, President – Omni Risk Management, Inc.
“HMMM…where do I start GOD SENT ME AN ANGEL, HER NAME IS: SARAH TANGREDI For over three years I felt helplessly stuck in a body of pain. Even with a diagnosis, of ‘Myofacial Pain Syndrome,’ and countless Medical Professionals we were unable to find a solution. I had no choice really, but to try something different: Yoga.
At that time I couldn’t even walk a block without getting shooting pains and burning in my legs. How could I start Yoga? I was referred to Sarah and as soon as we spoke, I knew I found the right person.
Her knowledge blows me away. She’ll ask where my pain is and uses those magical hands to reduce it immediately. She explains what’s happening within my body in simple terms and walks me through steps “I” can do to relieve my pain.
Our work spreads into every aspect of my life. I am stronger and more flexible in my body, mind and emotions. I deal with my stress with more ease. I’m learning to approach my GOALS AND FEARS with HONESTY, LOVE, CURIOSITY, and COURAGE. My fears now have LESS POWER OVER ME.
When we started, I could not stand up to brush my teeth. Now, my husband and I ride bikes, go for long hikes, and have even zip lined. I’m able to do Yoga Poses that before I thought, “Yeah right. Me, doing that?” but YES, I AM DOING THEM!! All this has happened for me in a very short period of time. The possibilities seem limitless! It gives me the chills to think of a pain free life.
SARAH HELPED ME HELP MYSELF. She is guiding me, slowly but surely to understand my Body, Mind & Stomach. How AWESOME is that?! She is just one of those SPECIAL GIFTED PEOPLE (ANGEL) that you want AND NEED in your life.
For others who are scared or hesitant that Sarah may not be the right instructor for you, I BEG of you, Please, Please, just make ONE CALL to her, she WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!”
~ Christine Hoey
Sarah gave me my life back. After more than a year of difficulty and pain I was lead to Sarah, who not only help me heal physically, but also positively impacted my life in so many other ways.
Sarah observed and offered small cues, which seemed so insignificant, but made such a huge difference. She taught me to stop fighting myself so I could make greater gains with less effort.
After each session, I not only felt better physically, but I left the studio with an inner feeling of tranquility and confidence that I had never experienced before.

“You truly crafted an incredible program. I came away full of more than I would ever have hoped for, and in a completely multi-dimensional way. What a wonderful experience and wealth of knowledge I carried on with me. Whenever I share with someone about the NYI trainings… I rave about the Anatomy course, expressing that ‘Sarah’s depth of knowledge in beyond my understanding,’ and that ‘the program offered a perfect balance of understanding the true logistics of the intricate system of the body while presented from a yoga perspective, covering all levels and providing so much more depth to what I do.’ It will allow me to evolve my teaching into new areas. I can’t wait to explore more therapeutics for individuals. It’s added confidence and understanding of myself and my clients.”

“I was surprised by Sarah’s depth of knowledge from varying schools/sides of thought. All the while brining together a fantastic experience with gems form all her hard work and study. She takes away what she finds to be interesting or true to her, not just following along. A Blend of Science and Art!”
~ Edward J Lubno Jr., RYT
“Sarah Tacy uses patience, grace, imagination, and an encyclopedic knowledge of the human body to guide her students through this course. She engaged us in ways we didn’t expect, until we were able to integrate this new knowledge about anatomy into our minds, and at the same time experience our own anatomy in a whole new way. I got so much more out of this course than I though t possible and I know a lot of it will sink in and be integrated later. I loved the experience and value the knowledge, both personal and technical that I have gained here. Plus I had a great time in this open, safe, caring and fun environment!”
~ Susan Leclaire, RYT

“I’m looking to take my golf swing to another level, but in order to do that I need to work on my body and I believe that yoga can be part of a training program to help me do that. If you are looking for a physical/mental challenge and want to improve your body to help you to be able to swing the club more effortlessly, give yoga a try. And if you live in the Huntington, New York area, give Sarah a call; I’m sure you’ll enjoy working with her.”
~ Joe Laurentino, PGA Professional: Northport, NY

Sarah is an outstanding teacher who knows how to give each player what he needs to be at his best when he leaves.
