Graduating from Down Under Yoga's 500 hour teacher training program under Natasha Rizopoulos, Sabbi found her focus early on in restorative yoga and has studied in Judith Hanson Lasater's Relax and Renew teacher trainings as well as in Nicole Clark's Power of Touch mentorship program. A strong believer in beginner's mind and the power of self-study, she continues to study and be inspired by the history and philosophy underlying yoga. Graduating from the University of Oxford with a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, she also loves the understanding that modern science can contribute to movement and asana, from the molecular and cellular, through musculo-skeletal alignment and all the way to neurobiology and cognitive science.
