The exploration of yoga with most schools in the West starts and ends with the postures and breath awareness. This is a great first step on the journey towards peace and happiness, but postures and mindful breathing alone are not enough to bring about the total spiritual transformation which most students of yoga seek.

Being a yoga teacher is a commitment to living the yogi lifestyle (with best effort). It's a commitment to continuous learning, practicing daily healthy habits, increasing your awareness and consciousness, practicing seva (selfless service) and so much more.
Being a yoga teacher requires a strong commitment to your own practice, growth and wellness so you have experiential knowledge and wisdom to pass down to your students.

Sara started her yoga practice during high school in 2008, while struggling with narcotic & alcohol addiction, debilitating anxiety & depression, eating-disorders, and even a close BPD diagnosis. She blacked out every single night for several years until she was around 20 years of age (2012). Luckily, she found herself at a rock-bottom early on and was able to pick herself back up at a young age using the ancient techniques of yoga and meditation.
Since 2012, Sara has been studying the chakras from a psycho-analytical perspective to help her unpack deeply repressed trauma from her childhood. Through study of the chakras, Sara learned how to access the root cause of her addiction and mental disorders that were causing her to suffer and want to escape. Now she uses the knowledge of the chakras to keep all aspects of her life in harmony.
Sara's interest in yoga eventually led her to complete her first 200-hour yoga teacher training in Cahuita, Costa Rica, in 2014. After, she taught yoga without charge for a solid year to the students and staff at The University of Akron as a way to practice teaching, share, and give back to her community.
Since then, Sara has spent thousands of hours teaching yoga and meditation at elementary schools, high schools, universities, fitness centers, local festivals, and at yoga studios. Her most meaningful experience has been teaching under-served populations such as in inner city schools in Akron and in Cleveland, at juvenile detention centers, drug and alcohol treatment centers, and at mental health facilities.
Sara has traveled to over 20+ countries with the intention to learn, grow and give back whenever possible. Between jobs, Sara spent her free time volunteering with children in third-world countries such as Nicaragua, teaching English, volunteering with animal rehabilitation sanctuaries, and of course, teaching yoga.
In 2016, Sara left for a three-month solo journey to India where she completed an advanced 300-hour yoga teaching training program at Yogadarshanam Ashtanga/Hatha yoga school in Mysore, India. Sara also studied at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute under Saraswathi Jois. She spent the rest of her time in India studying the culture and practicing her ability to surrender to the divine.
In 2017, Sara's spiritual development took a whole new route when she started practicing Vipassana meditation in the lineage of the Buddha as taught by S.N Goenka. These courses require its students to practice silent meditation from 4:30am - 9pm, with few breaks throughout the day. This is a completely silent course with the last meal being at 11:00am. Sara lived like a partial monk at these retreats. Since, she has completed five 10-day courses, one 8-day Satipatthana Suta course, and she has selflessly served for two 10-day course, spending a total of over 70 days of her life in complete silence, introspection and meditation (in this practice alone).
Sara purchased The Studio Cleveland, a wellness center located in the heart of Downtown Cleveland, in September, 2018. Sara's goal was to extend The Studio Cleveland's reach so more people could benefit from its spiritual and healing offerings. Sara strives to make The Studio Cleveland an inclusive and authentic resource for any human seeking inner peace.
Sara started hosting 200 hour yoga and meditation teacher trainings in April 2019. Since then, her trainings continue to grow and evolve with each cohort. She now offers a 50 meditation intensive and teacher training continuing education program as well as various other workshops & events throughout the year. Sara has a special place in her heart for traveling so she honors that by hosting regular, semi-annual wellness retreats both locally and internationally.
In 2022, Sara was approved to host 300-hour yoga and meditation teacher trainings via the Yoga Alliance, and purchased her second yoga studio - Lakewood Yoga.
Sara has also grown and developed an accessible, donation-based yoga for every BODY beach yoga offering throughout the summer months in Cleveland, Ohio, where thousands of students receive donation-based teachings outside in nature in the most beautiful parks throughout Cleveland, where Sara lives.
