Trusting Your Soul’s Journey

Confession: Because I teach what I most need to learn, reading or listening to my own teachings lift s my spirits. This was true with today’s SHE Talk.

Being human can be hard. This world can be harsh. But the challenges we face are never random. They’re here to help us uncap latent strengths within us. The more we face, the stronger we become.

To keep having the courage to say “yes” to life’s challenges– and stay sane and true to ourselves along the way– we need all the inspiration and support we can find.

I won’t give too much of a lead-in to today’s talk, other than I’m pretty sure it will lift your spirits, as it did mine.

Happy solstice, friends. I’m grateful to be able to sure these teachings with you, for doing so brings me alive and makes my heart sing!



I gave today’s SHE Talk on the final morning of the last SHE Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training in Thailand.

In it, I share:

  • How to give every woman (all those spirits and bodies who identify themselves as female and/or woman) a seat at the table
  • What’s missing from women’s yoga, meditation, & spiritual leadership
  • Ways to make sense of our deepest, most painful soul wounds
  • Where to look for your path and purpose when you feel lost and filled with doubt
  • Why it’s good to be a heretic
  • The secret power of your heart

“Joyful, powerful, trust-building in my skills. When it come to teaching women’s yoga, there’s really no one better than Sara! Her style is both nurturing and empowering. She’s a fierce mama-bear that encourages you to blossom into who you are!


I feel this has been my biggest initiation into leadership up until now, for through it I built more trust in myself.”

A big, warm welcome to all of you who joined us for the early bird deadline for the SHE Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training on Monday!! We’re going to have a magical time together this December. I’m already preparing for it to be the best training yet.

And, if you haven’t joined us yet, and you loved these Poolside Sutras, please consider joining me for my upcoming SHE Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training (December 1-8, 2018; Tulum, Mexico), open for registration until next Thursday, June 28.

Believe me, I know: even when our longing for truth nearly breaks our hearts in two, it’s too easy to let yoga & meditation become one more outlet for our perfectionism, self-criticism, doubt, and shame.

That’s because we women wake up differently than men. But even though upwards of 90% of most yoga classes are all women, we’re still practicing as if we were teenage-boy gymnasts. (With slight modifications for those pesky feminine details.)

Yes, the Patriarchy lives…even in the yoga & meditation worlds.

Being a woman isn’t a detail: it’s the profound, sacred source of all of life. If you’re aching for a fresh, feminine approach to embodiment and spirituality, you’re not alone. You deserve it. And if you teach? Your community deserves this from you, too.

Please join me and an intimate circle of reverent rebels at my upcoming SHE Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training. Think: less linear, more flux-flow. Less rigid discipline, more authentic devotion. Less bootcamp, more retreat.

Registration is now open, but to keep things extra intimate, space is limited to 17 women.

Hello, beautiful. I’m Sara: a teacher of feminine spiritual and empowerment, author, and founder of The Way of the Happy Woman. I’m also the leader of The SHE School and the SHE Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training. Here’s the truth: I don’t want to be your guru. But I am wholeheartedly devoted to guiding women back to their own, inner wisdom, through feminine spiritual practices, yoga, meditation, and a whole lotta love (and guts). This work is my truest calling and greatest joy. I’m so happy to have the chance to share it with you.
