We were delighted to host a live conversation on Friday November 19th with end-of-life educator, death doula, and yoga & mindfulness instructor Sarah Jane Shangraw.  

Sarah Jane joined us for a thoughtful dialogue about how yoga and mindfulness practices can bring presence, grace, and light to the dying process.  

In case you missed it, you can watch the whole conversation here:

Boston-based Sarah Jane Shangraw shares yogic, Buddhist, and psycho-spiritual methods that engender wholeness and connectedness. Through classes, courses, and coaching she encourages embodied mindfulness without overemphasizing physical sequences. Her teaching is trauma-informed and motivated by the idea that when we feel more at home in ourselves as we are — in body, heart, and mind — we can more skillfully engage in the world.

Academic study in religion and communications, learning and practice in Early and Tantric Buddhism, and ongoing training in trauma and somatic healing have encouraged Sarah Jane to see human beings as full of potential. She is inspired by many teachers and mentors, including Sarah and Ty Powers of the Insight Yoga Institute, for which she serves as a mentor.

Sarah Jane holds E-RYT 500 and YACEP designations from Yoga Alliance and is a member of the International Mindfulness Teachers Association. In addition to mind-body and mindful living workshops, Sarah Jane provides continuing education to yoga teachers, and serves as an end-of-life educator and death doula.

Sarah Jane considers it a joy and privilege to share ways we can tap inner wisdom, develop inner resources, and grow at any stage of life.

We’re honored to call Sarah Jane a founding member of our virtual studio. Practice with her live or on-demand.

Thanks so much for joining us, Sarah Jane. We loved learning from you.
