Sara sees yoga, as well as one’s relationship with their practice, as a metaphor for their experience in life (off the mat). It all starts with getting on your mat.
Sara began practicing in New York City in the early millennium, at a time when yoga was actively moving into the mainstream. After years of dabbling in various yoga trends, she found her way to a Mysore Ashtanga class. This was her “a-ha” yoga moment that lead to a deepened commitment to her practice with a respect for the tradition, ritual, and depth of the practice beyond poses. She completed a 200-hour training in 2012 and a 500-hour advanced yoga teacher training at Boston Yoga School under the direction of Ame Wren and Kevin Courtney (2017). Locally she practices with Petra Ledkovsky van Aarem. Foremost, she draws knowledge from her own asana practice and dedication to self-study and personal analysis with an interest in Jungian Psychology. She embraces the collective of the Outer Cape community as a place of creativity, nature, and slowing down, and teaches a class that exists within the context of that energy.
Sara has a BS in Psychology, a Master’s in Art Therapy, and coursework in Psychoanalysis. You will find aspects of her education threaded into her class. Sara has a specialty psychotherapy practice called Cape Cod Art Therapy and is a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor in Massachusetts. She facilitates workshops, and private sessions, focusing on Yoga For Emotional Self-Regulation.
