Sara Szunyogh


In January 2007, Sara completed a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher course in Cleveland, OH with renowned teacher Marni Task. It changed her life forever! Her style of instruction is vinyasa based, meaning the postures flow from one to the next linked by conscious breath.  

Sara teaches uplifting and spiritually based classes using Jivamukti and Anusara yoga principles.  Her classes also focus on various yogic techniques including postures, chanting, music, breath work, meditation, alignment principles, and the teachings of yogic texts.  Each class is tailored to the group's or individual's needs for a unique customized experience.

Sara is the best yogi I have ever worked with. My practice improved measurably under her guidance. She is able to communicate with any level of yoga practitioner. Plus she has Miyagi hands.
