Hi, I'm Sara
As a former corporate executive I know what it's like to work 60+ hour weeks: traveling, meetings and calls at all hours, working across teams in different time zones and on projects that need to be finished yesterday.
The toll that this fast-paced, high-stress lifestyle can take on your well-being is overwhelming. Burnout was a stark reality and became my wakeup call, eventually leading me to try yoga and meditation.
Over the last 15 years, I've invested time and effort in training with some of the world's top yoga and meditation teachers, adapting ancient wisdom to fit today's fast-paced world.
A few years ago I traded in my corporate hat and moved to the Big Island of Hawaii and started to share what I have learned.
My mission now is to help people find their own balance and sense of peace. Whether you're juggling work and family, dealing with the chaos of constant travel, or simply seeking better rest, I offer practical tools that work in the real world.
Cultivate Your Calm
Are you feeling:
Like your mind is moving a million miles a minute
And you're in an endless cycle of wake, work, family time, watch TV, sleep
Do you feel:
Sick as soon as you slow down
Some people live happily distracted in this cycle for years (and I’m speaking from experience here!) For a lot of people, stress manifests into something else – anger, fear, unhappiness, feeling stuck and sometimes even resulting in sickness and disease.
Why meditation & yoga?
There are tremendous benefits — physical, mental, and spiritual.
I teach people techniques that they can use immediately: as they leave the house for the day, before a big call or during a stressful situation.
People use these techniques to center themselves and their emotions, breathe better and create a type of ’pattern disrupt’ to their normal physical and mental stress responses.
Once they have developed a new stress response and learn how to access their stillness, then they are able to observe their lives and day-to-day with more equanimity. This is when the big 'AHA' moments happen, and people start making better decisions that change the course of their lives.
This is how I can help
I help people to cultivate their calm so they can lead a more joyful, happier and stress-less life.
You can go from feeling stressed out and distracted to being calmer, happier and healthier. Becoming the best version of yourself.
You can learn the fundamental principles of meditation
that cover all traditions. And once you practice them, you are able to choose what works best for you.
If you want to learn some of these techniques, jump in, book a session and let's get started.
"Meditation is the ultimate mobile device; you can use it anywhere, anytime, unobtrusively."
— Sharon Salzberg
“I never met Sara prior to booking meditation. I have been struggling with anxiety and insomonia. I tend to have bad boundaries and get overly involved with other peoples problems and quite frankly I’m upset about where things are headed globally. Meditation with Sara has given me tools to clear up some of my thinking. Work on resting my mind and become more clear about what I own and can control and what is not mine. Quelling some of my tendency to worry.”

“I am not what you would call a naturally calm person. Sitting still with my thoughts is not something I look forward to! I always need to be doing something or running through thoughts in my head. Sara has taught me every week to make meditation a natural and easy process you can weave into your daily life—and fill your day with better intention and positive energy. Slowly I’m developing better habits thanks to Sara!”
- Christine Y.
“I have learned both meditation and yoga from Sara and it has really helped me to change my day-to-day habits. I'm sleeping better, moving more, and I'm finding myself getting less upset and stressed with work. I am also finding myself wanting to learn and read more about how to stay healthy and calm. I would definitely recommend hiring Sara to teach you some new tools and techniques to improve your own day-to-day.”
