Sara Salehi

Sara’s background as a scientist is in psychology and neuroscience. As an educator and teacher, her style comes from a unique marriage between knowledge of the human brain and body. She focuses on guiding students through a conversation with their bodies, while using the breath as an awareness tool.
Over the years, She has completed an array of teacher trainings in different styles of yoga, including Moksha, Moksha Flow, Pre and post natal yoga, as well as yin and restorative. Recently, she went to the jungle to add Thai yoga massage to my repertoire and completed multiple intensives in the jungle at Navina Costa Rica.
Sara’s approach to teaching is to bring her students to a point in their practice where they can appreciate the subtlety of Moksha Yoga as a movement based meditation and to realize the relevance of each pose to our daily struggles in the ‘real world’. Through each pose she challenges her students to test their habits by thinking about when they give up , how they react, what expectations, self-doubts, and self-judgments they experience.
