Test Run: where extreme biking and yoga connect!

Sarah Richelle Starnes and Matt Slager are friends…and they are creating a fun project together…watch the video to get a preview of what’s to come!

Matt and Sarah love adventure…and they are taking their passions and combining them to create art and dabble in an experiment involving yoga and bike jumping!

This video is a preview of a project they are working on…expected to be completed within the next month. These wild characters live in Naperville, IL…visit Sarah’s blog or find her on Facebook to see the finished project video (when it’s posted) and other shenanigans!


Sarah Richelle Starnes has been studying the practices of yoga, health and spirituality her entire life. She owes much of her knowledge to her mother, Debbie, who raised her all naturally and taught her many very valuable lessons about life and how to connect to Nature. Sarah began teaching yoga in 1999 and has been leading yoga teacher trainings’ since 2004. Her ever-evolving teaching style is playful and light hearted…yet intense, challenging, and deeply focused on healthy alignment and healing. Sarah loves to immerse her students in the healing vibrations of sound, performing kirtan, live music in yoga classes, gong sound healing workshops with her sister Stephanie and always singing to her students in savasana. With a background primarily in Anusara, AcroYoga, Energy Healing & Native American studies, Sarah embodies an eclectic mix of mindful practice, ritual, play and grace.
