Fresh Face: Zen & Fit with Sara
If you haven’t heard of Sara Esh, you will soon enough! Her burgeoning presence as a holistic health coach, barre, and yoga instructor (practicing under her company name, Zen & Fit ) has not only been embraced within Lancaster’s wellness scene, but also among the small business community we all know and love.
Sara was born and raised in Lancaster County, and first came to her yoga practice for sanctuary away from life’s struggles. Though she had attended her first class as a teenager, she began settling into the local yoga scene as a regular in her early 20’s.
As her practice advanced, she felt an overwhelming sense of clarity which evolved into a strengthening of her faith. “As I turned to my mat and God for growth, gratitude, and peace, I just kept peeling away things that weren’t me,” she explains. After completing her 200-hour teacher training and becoming profoundly inspired by an international retreat in Bali, Sara’s purpose and path seemed to unravel before her.
Beyond her mission of providing clients with a safe space to find balance, release, and connection, Sara also puts great importance on her relationship with the local community. While you might already recognize her name from the class schedule at I Am Limitless, pop-up classes are currently in the works at Ellister’s Elixirs, Good Life Organic Kitchen, and even Our Town Brewery. Additionally, she plans on inviting local vendors to these classes to sell handmade goods, speak, and provide musical therapy during classes.
“I want to help create positive change and connection here in Lancaster, with a focus on holistic wellness and mental health awareness.” she affirms, drawing from the miraculous experiences yoga, fitness, and wellness has afforded her.
“When I reflect on the lessons I learned and the things that I’ve gone through, they’ve made me the strong woman I am today. A teacher provided me access to the tools I needed to get here. I want to provide that for my students.”
