Why Yoga Prehab?
I’ve worked with modern yoga and movement training for over 10 years and I’ve bumped into several challenges along the way, misinformation being one of the most prevalent. This combined with my own experience from training with injuries, throughout pregnancy and postpartum, and with clear cut performance goals made me more and more interested in the subject of the body and how it works. So I started studying these topics more intensely. This has accumulated to what I’m teaching today, and this is why Yoga Prehab exists - to help people being proactive about their bodies, minds, and health.
What is Yoga Prehab?
Yoga Prehab aims to raise the bar for yoga and movement training by distilling the latest research on health science, physiology, and biomechanics into actionable knowledge that you can use on the mat and in the gym.
The body as a whole is made up of many systems that work together when you are active and healthy. Through our sedentary lives - sitting at desks and in cars all day without moving - we lose touch with what we are built for and our health suffers.
Yoga Prehab is a proactive approach to yoga and training that focuses on enhancing body awareness, stress management, movement capacity, physical longevity, and well-being.
Stay a step ahead. Be proactive.
Hi, I'm Sara. For the last 10 years I have been working with yoga and movement training, most recently as one of the head teachers at the yoga teacher trainings at The Nordic Yoga Institute. I'm also part of the the team of contributors at Yoga Research & Beyond, and part of team Yogobe where I teach online classes.
As a yoga teacher my greatest joy is leading teacher trainings and courses - you can find my coming events here.
As you might have guessed already, I’m kind of a nerd when it comes to health and movement education. I'm currently involved in a research project that looks at health benefits from yoga and physical activity. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Public Health from Karolinska Institutet and a Master’s degree in Exercise Science from The Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences. I am ERYT-500 certified in Virya Yoga and a registered YACEP, a licensed Personal Trainer and FRC™ Mobility Specialist.
The mission with what I do is turning yoga research, public health, and exercise science into actionable knowledge that can be used on the mat, in the gym, and in everyday life.
My first book ‘Yoga, Science & Facts’ (currently available in Swedish as ‘Yoga, vetenskap och fakta – därför fungerar det’) was released in March, 2019 by Sweden’s largest publisher, Bonnier Fakta.
Most of all I’m passionate about learning and sharing the insights.
