Sara Turk, 500ERYT, YACEP, Owner

Sara began her study of yoga in 1997, as a compliment to her dance training, and came to Ashtanga yoga in 2005. She has had the fortune of in-depth study with great teachers such as Doug Swenson, Tim Miller, Andrew Eppler, Max Strom and Ashtanga lineage holder Sharath Jois. Sara completed her 500RYT in Sadhana Yoga Chi with Doug Swenson (June 2011) - emphasizing a holistic approach to yoga (Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Power, Yin & Restorative asana, along with meditation, nutrition, and cross-training). Sara is a dedicated yoga practitioner, teacher, and health & animal rights advocate.

Sara has been honored to be part of the Hyde Yoga clothing catalogue (Spring 2014) and serve as Yoga Ambassador for Lululemon (2010-2011). Over the years, Sara has cultivated an award-winning healthy recipe blog, The Innocent Primate Vegan Blog. After leaving the life of a scientist (Neuroendocrine Physiology), Sara opened Cherry Blossom Yoga (Spring TX) with her sister, Johanna. In addition to regular classes and teacher trainings at the studio, now travels offering workshops, teacher trainings, and occasionally assists Doug Swenson in his trainings and workshops.

Her teaching philosophy: "Yoga heals the mind, body, and spirit - loosens what's tight, unbinds that which hinders, and comforts what aches."
