Sarah Tiefenthaler is the owner and founder of “YOGAqua”, LA’s premier Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga studio. YOGAqua was established in July 2011 in Marina Del Rey, CA and in May 2018, a second YOGAqua location was established in Ventura, CA. In addition to being a Presenter at Wanderlust, she is also the SUP Program Coordinator for all four day festivals.
Sarah completed her first 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in the tropical jungles of Costa Rica where she focused intensely on the philosophy of Yoga as well as meditation practices. When she returned to Los Angeles, she completed her second 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training certification in Hollywood, CA at Earth’s Power Yoga where she was able to expand her knowledge of human anatomy and alignment in relation to Yoga. After spending day after day in the magnificence of the Costa Rican jungle, Sarah still longed for any activity in which she could maintain a consistent presence in nature. When Sarah returned home from Costa Rica in 2010 she soon discovered her passion for Stand Up Paddleboarding; it was the perfect solution to keep her out in nature, on the water, and under the sun. With her obvious passion for Yoga, it was not long before she began to experiment with Yoga poses on the board which was just the spark that very quickly lead to the creation of her SUP Yoga company, YOGAqua. Sarah has since completed her third Yoga Teacher Training for 100 hours at Maha Yoga in Brentwood, CA and is also a Level 2 World Paddle Association Instructor. Sarah offers four SUP Yoga Teacher Training Courses per year.
