Sarah Cavrak, PhD | E-RYT200
Sarah Cavrak holds a PhD in Cognitive Sciences, is an international yoga & meditation teacher, Reiki Master, and writer. Foundationally fascinated by the human psyche from a young age, Sarah has discovered profound insight into the fundamental “why” questions of Life, by studying the “how” questions of the mind.
A student for life, Sarah is in constant evolution, fine-tuning her body, mind, and spirit through the practices of yoga, meditation, writing, and ceremony. The journey of her heart and wild soul have called her to teach and find healing in the rainforests of Costa Rica, the mountains of Guatemala, and the coastal areas of Colombia. She is currently completing her 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training with mentor Avani Gilbert at the Caribe Yoga Academy.
A Little More About Me
Portland, Oregon, USA
I have been practicing yoga for 16 years, teaching for 6, and am a Yoga Alliance certified instructor (E-RYT). I received my 200-hour Hatha Yoga training through my home studio, Tough Love Yoga, in 2013, in Atlanta, GA. In December 2014, I began travel-teaching, and through my recent adventures I have realized her passion for working with women, and toward that end have completed her pre-natal yoga certification, and has also become a women’s circle leader through The WILD Woman Project.
The foundation and core energy flowing through my classes are that of compassion, acceptance, and healing. Accordingly, sequences are challenging, and intentionally structured to build both strength and precision in one’s body. My training focused heavily on anatomy and alignment; therefore cues for pose structure and refinement are specific and measurable.
I am incredibly passionate about using the tools of yoga to help people feel strong within their bodies, so they feel empowered within their lives.
