My name is Sarah Ann Aborn and I was certified as a Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP) through Heartwood Institute in Garberville, California in 1998. In the 2+ decades that I have been working in this field, I have come to find my greatest contribution to be helping people learn how to come fully into their bodies, to befriend themselves and to accept and allow the full spectrum of their emotions. I find massive joy in empowering people with tools to transform their suffering and remember their wholeness and connection with Spirit. I have certifications in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Zen Shiatsu Acupressure and Polarity Therapy. I’ve also received training in hypnotherapy, and the neuroscience of coaching. I received a 200 hour Anusara Inspired Yoga teacher certification in 2008 and a 200 hour Kundalini Yoga teacher certification in 2014. In 2017 I completed my Life Coaching Certification through Relationship Coaching Institute in 2017 and later that year completed my EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) training with Jan L. Watkins. I continue to study the neuroscience of coaching, have written curriculum for Y4C (Yoga 4 Classrooms), and created UPLEVEL: Embodied Self Healing, an online program.
I have crossed paths with many different teachers and methodologies as I have sought out Yoga in all the different places I’ve lived over the past 25 years. I am so blessed and in deep appreciation to all of my teachers along the way. I am honored to share what I have learned in a context of self-healing. I do so with respect and gratitude to the Non-Dual Shaiva Tantric wisdom at the foundation of these Yoga lineages, and the plethora of ways that these teachings have informed my development, and continue to inform how I assist people in learning to take charge of their emotional healing and joyful, embodied living. May we all awaken to our true, divine nature, and may we celebrate the diverse, exalted beauty of our interconnected truth.
Currently I spearhead SHAKTI Healing Arts in Peterborough, NH, coach groups and individuals in person and online, teach Yoga, offer therapeutic massage, dance, sing and play outside with my beloved son and greatest source of joy, wisdom and lessons learned ~ Desmond!
