“Om Schooled is the perfect manual for anyone who wants to start teaching yoga to kids. This is not just a theoretical book—it is a step-by-step manual. Sarah Herrington shares the wisdom she has gained from her day-to-day experiences, for many years, teaching all ages of children yoga in the New York School system.”
—Sharon Gannon, co-creator of the Jivamukti Yoga method
“Om Schooled, the book, is a treasure-trove of information for school-based professionals and yoga teachers, across the board. I love Sarah’s eloquent expression of her own personal journey to finding her yoga mat to her unique experience teaching full-time school yoga. The engaging voice of the author, photos of kids and quotes by children fill the book with love and inspiration. Truly, not to be missed.”

<----- A collection of early NYC poetry, originally read and lived at the Bowery Poetry Club, Cornelia Street Cafe, St Marks Poetry Project and more. Includes poems of speed (city) and silence (yoga-influenced poems).
“Always Moving is the debut poetry collection by Oprah Magazine-featured New York poet Sarah Herrington. Her poems in this collection, spanning 10 years of publication, readings, work and NYC life, dash in the rhythms of the city, but can pause to focus on clouds moving over a field back home. The simple beauty of the yoga poems lends a sense of balance to the collection, and a tangible peace in a world that is Always Moving. The photographs throughout the book, snapped by Sarah enroute, offer further evidence of this poet’s discerning eye and lyrical sensibility.”
—Bowery Books – YBK Publishers
"From farmlands to the heart of New York City, Sarah Herrington’s writing weds poetry to the spiritual and romantic quest, creating a sacred mandala from the everyday world. We’re fortunate to have this intense, imaginative voice rallying us against the despair, reminding us that as long as we’re breathing, seeing, loving, and 'always moving,' we’re fully alive and well."
--Leza Lowitz, author "Up From the Sea," “Yoga Poems” and “Yoga Heart: Lines on the Six Perfections”
