Sara Gage 

Sara-Jane Gage completed her 200-hr KYT at Kripalu during their month-long intensive yoga teacher training program in 2018 and has been practicing yoga for the last 12 years. Sara is a mental health and substance use therapist and has a passion for helping others learn how to help themselves. The practice of yoga became an integral part of Sara’s life when she was struggling with substance use disorder and she began seeking ways to learn how to be present in the moment and more in touch with mind, body, and spirit. Through yoga, exercise, faith, and therapy, Sara learned new ways to cope in a healthy and positive way and works to help others learn how to be the best version of themselves, both on and off the mat. 

Sara brings a sense of fun, empathy, creativity, and passion to her classes, along with ever changing playlists and themes. In Sara’s classes you can expect to deepen your practice on and off the mat by connecting with your authentic self through breath, asanas, and meditation.
