Sara began her study of yoga in 1997, as a compliment to her dance training, and came to Ashtanga yoga in 2005. She has had the fortune of in-depth study with great teachers such as Doug Swenson, Tim Miller, Andrew Eppler, Max Strom and Ashtanga lineage holder Sharath Jois. Sara completed her 500RYT in Sadhana Yoga Chi with Doug Swenson (June 2011), emphasizing a holistic approach to yoga. She is a dedicated yoga practitioner, teacher, and health & animal rights advocate.
Over the years, Sara has cultivated an award-winning healthy recipe blog, The Innocent Primate Vegan Blog. After leaving the life of a scientist (Neuroendocrine Physiology), Sara opened Cherry Blossom Yoga in Spring, TX with her sister, Johanna. In addition to regular classes and teacher trainings at the studio, Sara travels frequently, offering workshops, teacher trainings and occasionally assisting Doug Swenson in his trainings and workshops.
Her teaching philosophy: “Yoga heals the mind, body, and spirit – loosens what’s tight, unbinds that which hinders, and comforts what aches.”
