Sara Mitteer, RYT, CRM, CHT
Sara began her career as a dance instructor in 2009 and has taught for over five different professional and pre-professional dance studios in Southern California. She developed a deep passion for teaching her students how good it can feel to be disciplined, focused, confident, and committed through being a dancer. While teaching dance throughout college, she tried her first yoga class and became captivated immediately. After practicing as a devoted yogi for over a year, Sara enrolled in Yoga Teacher Training at Corepower Yoga. She was intrigued by every aspect of yoga; mind, body, and soul. She buried herself in books, journals, yoga classes, and embarked on a journey of self-realization. Sara received her Certification as a Registered Yoga Teacher in 2013. Shortly after, a close elderly family member suffered from a stroke. She became aware of how helpful yoga could be for stroke survivors and felt inspired to create a yoga class for rehabilitation. She quickly learned that very few yoga classes existed that were accessible for all senior citizens and handicapped/disabled individuals. After graduating from San Diego State University with a BA in Psychology in 2014, Sara began creating a chair yoga program and founded San Diego Chair Yoga. Sara believes that everyone deserves to experience how Yoga can change your life, regardless of physical ability. Sara is devoted to creating the opportunity for others to embark on their own self-realization journeys and experience how impactful Yoga is, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
