Yoga Profile: Sarah Beattie, Yoga Teacher and Certified Health Coach

Sarah Beattie has worked in the health and fitness industry for over 30 years. “Since high school, it’s been my passion to help people realize their fullest potential through a healthy lifestyle. I never imagined I would become a yoga instructor, but upon meeting and marrying Pace Beattie, owner of Southern Om Hot Yoga, it clearly became a natural career choice for me to pursue.”

Beattie completed her RYT 200 (registered yoga teacher with 200 hours training) with the Baptiste Institute in 2014 and holds the distinction of being one of the three Southern Om instructors to be Baptiste certified teachers.

At Southern Om studios, Beattie teaches heated vinyasa flow classes, in addition to a Bikram-style series called Southern 26. She recently completed 100 hours of Yin Yoga teacher training and plans to incorporate that practice into her teaching schedule in the Fall. She has also completed additional training with the Baptiste Institute and the Pavones Yoga Center in Pavones, Costa Rica, and she recently began the process of pursuing her 500-hour certification.

In addition, Beattie is a certified health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Beattie adds, “I like to let people know I am a breast cancer survivor in case they have any questions or concerns about practicing yoga before, during or after treatment.”

Southern Om studios are located in Greenville at 1140 Woodruff Road, Suite 301 and 1116 S. Main Street, Suite D. To contact Sarah Beattie, call 864-520-8777.
