The Yoga of Whitewater Rafting 

Sarah Vee

Yoga and whitewater rafting go together so well. Yoga can create a deeper sense of awareness of your physical body and help to increase your sense of emotional presence which may lead to a richer experience on the river.  If you feel like you want to reset and prepare yourself physically and mentally before you hit the water, taking a yoga class as part of your trip is for you! 

Sarah Vee has been practicing yoga for nine years. In 2014 she became a Registered Yoga Teacher with Kripalu in Massachusetts. Kripalu is an approach to yoga that incorporates the philosophical teachings of yoga and advocates that yoga should be accessible to every body. Sarah teaches everything from gentle flow to more vigorous vinyasa classes. Her classes are holistic and always incorporate meditation and breathing practices.

Sarah offers modifications and variations and aims to create classes that are inclusive and nourishing for all bodies. Her classes encourage you to dive in and experience the flow of energy within you so that you can better enjoy the flow of energy around you when you hit the river on the first day of your trip. 

Sarah currently teaches yoga at Main Street Yoga in Placerville California. She has also been guiding on the South Fork of the American River with River Runners since 2012. Read her guide bio here
