SARAH RICKETTS started practicing yoga as a way to cope with the stress of a demanding job in the financial industry and as a supplement to running, hiking and playing soccer. She quickly realized the practice was benefitting her life in more ways than expected. Five years later she left her job to spend more time with family and explore a new career path. As yoga became a bigger part of her life, she decided to enroll in We Are Yoga’s 200-hour Teacher Training. In the fall of 2014, Sarah combined her love of yoga and desire to re-enter the business world and took over ownership of We Are Yoga. She brings a love of community and yoga and strives to make all her classes welcoming and approachable.

When you aren’t working, what do you like to do?
If I’m not working, I prefer to be hiking, skiing, doing more yoga, sleeping, reading, playing with my husband and two kids.

Who was your idol while growing up?
I still consider myself to be ‘growing up’ however right now my idol is my father and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

What qualities do you love in people?
I love people who make me laugh, are understanding, compassionate and curious.

What is your favorite hike in Utah?
All of them! But to name a few – Mill D North in Big Cottonwood Canyon, there’s an amazing overlook about 30 minutes about the trail. The trail to Dog Lake from Big Cottonwood Canyon. The Desolation Trail from Millcreek Canyon to the overlook.

What is your idea of happiness?
A lazy weekend morning – sleeping in, maybe reading a book in bed then breakfast with eggs and bacon and some delicious pastry and coffee, pajamas till noon and friends or family around so we can talk or not talk for hours.
