sara khorasani

Sara has been practicing yoga for over 10 years, and completed her teacher training with Bodhiyoga in 2018. She teaches mindfulness based yoga which draws on both hatha yoga and buddhist principles, emphasizing the cultivation of a grounded and embodied approach and the development of somatic awareness both on the mat and in daily life.  She mainly teaches on retreats, enjoying the depth and subtlety of practice that can be reached with the combined practice of yoga and meditation in a intensive context.  Sara is training for Ordination in the Triratna Buddhist Order, and both her personal yoga practice and her teaching style emphasizes the spiritual dimension of yoga as a means towards greater clarity, openness, compassion and freedom.
