Bio & Teaching Style
Sara has been a certified yoga instructor since 1981 and is a certified Somatic Coach through the Strozzi Institute, Petaluma, CA. She began her yoga teaching while living in a spiritual community, Nityananda Institute, in Cambridge, MA and was inspired in her practice as a means of preparation for meditation and spiritual growth.
Her yoga instructors come from a variety of yogic and healing traditions and lineages including Swami Chetanananda, Sivananda, Desikachar, Todd Jackson, Somatic Therapy, Ayurveda and Trika Yoga — thus her own teaching style is highly eclectic and adaptive to the individual, and grounded in our fundamental tools of breath/pranayama, mental focus/awareness and movement/asana, and the guiding principles underlying many Eastern spiritual traditions as well as Western traditions of system dynamics and holistic health and wellness — oneness and integration, alignment, flow, and releasing of patterns, blocks and tension to free creative energy and increase the flow of health.
Health IS. In our yoga practice, we simply and persistently practice removing, dissolving and letting go of the blocks and restrictions, thus allowing our innate Health to flow within us, through us, around us.
Currently Sara teaches yoga at The Movement Center in Portland, OR and also in Corbett, OR.
Sara has also worked professionally as an organizational development consultant, trainer and facilitator since 1985, providing organization change and project-based management, coaching, formal training and event facilitation services to a variety of corporate, public agency and health care clients. In 1995, Sara founded HEALTHY SYSTEMS located in Portland, Oregon. HEALTHY SYSTEMS provides consulting and customized training for organizational effectiveness, and focuses specifically on how to create and sustain the health and vitality of an organization in its meetings, projects, processes, direction-setting, organization culture and interpersonal relationships.
