Based on Brown Street, Auckland, SALA offers an integrated approach to physical and mental fitness (with high intensity HIIT, Core and Kettlebell) yet it is centred around yoga. It makes sense too, that its founder Sarah Lindsay is different, far from your average gym owner.
Sarah’s journey with yoga began when she completed her study (she majored in Sociology and Philosophy, then she moved into Research) and travelled to India.
When there, she signed up for a yoga course.
“I couldn’t even touch my toes! I was the most unlikly yogi”, she says. But the experience was an awakening. The coordinates of her life’s direction were shifted for good. Returning to London, she did her teacher training and began teaching at many of the city’s most celebrated studios before she moved to New Zealand with her husband, always hoping to one day open her own place.
