"Yoga Therapy offers a framework for natural transformation of the pain we have experienced in a safe and secure place. This encourages deep security throughout our relationships and also throughout of life journey." 

- Sara-mae Martin (Peace Within Yoga Therapy)

Supporting Families Through the journey of adoption

Sara-mae works with numerous families throughout their journey of adoption. Sara-mae offers a compassionate, empathetic and safe space for both parents and children to explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions through yoga therapy techniques.


Through specialised understanding and individual approaches, the sessions offer adoptive parents ways to build relationships with their children, increasing attachment, trust and security, within a calm and creative space.


The sessions are delivered with trauma in mind and seek to support the young person into a re-connection to their physical and emotional balance, to restore health and well being for trauma related conditions, autism, learning disabilities, etc...

Yoga Therapy sessions can help children from complex and traumatic backgrounds to increase concentration and attention skills, improve family and social relationships and increase a child’s confidence.

For many children it is the first step towards finding ways of dealing with their feelings of loss, frustration and emotional trauma so that they can start to learn to trust, love and lead happier lives.


“Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the teachings and practices of Yoga.”

FAMILY Yoga Therapy with Sara-mae

 The yoga therapy sessions that I offer are hugely based upon a 'person centred' approach and come from a place of understanding that parents have indeed been on their own journey towards adoption.


Life throws many obstacles at us all and during my life have experienced a number too. Since Yoga found me, I have found the way to overcome many of those obstacles and I believe that through my own life experiences and journey through yoga, I can help offer this very special understanding and support throughout a yoga therapy session.

My work incorporates basic counselling skills with specialist yoga therapy techniques of movement (based upon yogic postures), focus upon specific pranayama practices (breath work) and so much more. You are sure to acquire effective life skills from each and every session.

My sessions seek to tackle the present moment concern, at the same time as working deeply upon the underlying concern.

The aim of Yoga Therapy is to promote good health for the person as a whole, the emphasis of this work may be towards the body, the mind, the emotions or a combination of all of these. 

I work with the family over a series of sessions, some with children and some with parent only, depending on the needs of each family
