Sara Alvarez Kleinsmith is a yoga teacher and writer in Austin, Texas. She considers herself an “Anatomy Geek” who loves to learn and teach about somatics and embodied anatomy in asana practice. She received her first Yoga training in Vinyasa Flow from Sonic Yoga in midtown Manhattan. She then attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and was hired as a full time yoga Teacher and health coach at Allen and Company LLC. In her time at Allen, Sara became a true professional, working with all levels of fitness and age groups. She became a personal trainer through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America and then became a serious devotee of the Breathing Project. There, she received 2 years and over 300 hours of the very best Yoga training Amy Matthews and Leslie Kaminoff, who wrote the book Yoga Anatomy. Since moving to Austin 3 years ago, Sara has taught corporate and therapeutic yoga at resorts, country clubs, yoga studios, wellness centers, retirement homes, and chiropractic clinics. Sara is inspired by the work of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Moishe Feldenkrais, Ida Rolf, Candace Pert, Susi Hately, Jill Miller, and most especially her teachers Lauren Wigo and Amy Matthews. Sara’s intuitive style of teaching is designed to fit each student, uniquely and authentically, and is based on the work of movement experts, therapists, and yoga teachers who have come before her. She hopes to bring to Austin some of the work that the Breathing Project taught her. Sara lives in South Austin with her husband, Zach, and son, Andy.
