"Sara is an amazing Yoga teacher. She cares deeply about what she does and about her students, both on a physical and a spiritual level. She brings wisdom and compassion to her teachings and Yoga Home of Therapeutics is a true sanctuary." Love you Sara!

I wish I lived in OK City so I could learn from Sara. I have known her for many years and fell into deep friendship with her immediately. My respect and appreciation for her continues to grow. You have a great resource in Yoga Home of Therapeutics and Sara. All blessings to Sara and her studio! Namaste.

"My weekly rope-wall yoga class at Yoga Home of Therapeutics is a mid-week haven. It really helps to de-stress, while building strength. I go home feeling like I just got a massage after hanging from the ropes and decompressing."

My name is Bill Divinney. I have been in and out of hospitals and rehabs centers for a number of years. I suffered separate injuries to two parts of my lumber spine and another severe injury to the nerves and muscles of my legs and feet. I have been in physical therapy since 2005, and continue to be in p.t. today. After over three years of daily doses of pain medication and physical therapy, one of my doctors recommended that I find a gentle therapeutic yoga to help build my strength and flexibilit, balance and breathing. I talked to a lot of studios but, Sara Alavi's Yoga Home of Therapeutics Studio seemed to have the best starter programs for someone like me. I talked to her twice over the phone and visited her at the studio and had another long talk with her. She seemed to be very knowledgeable abut my problems and had recommendations that would fit my schedule and work in conjunction with my physical therapy. I started with two classes a week of gentle yoga. It did work with what I 've been trying to do in p.t. Though I felt clumsy and out of place at first, in about 10 lessons I could see how studying yoga would help me in the areas I needed help the most. Now, after a year I take up to four classes a week, some more difficult than the original two that I still take. I am gaining strength and flexibility, finally and have become more balanced when I walk, sit and work about the house. Breathing as I have been taught in Yoga has helped my concentration and to reduce my stress. I can not express enough thanks to everyone who has helped me during these illnesses. I also would say that the type of yoga taught by Sara and the other instructors at Yoga Home of Therapeutics is very helpful in rebuilding lost strength, flexibility, blance and improve breathing. I feel much better now than I did one year ago when I first walked though the studio's doors. If you are in pain and looking for help that compliments and helps your life and other programs that you may already be in, I strongly recommend that you call Sara and make an appt. to sit down and talk with her and see if this is right for you. I am glad I did!

My sister Patti was at your class last night.She called me this morning so full of happiness from being with you and being touch by your healing hands. God bless you for having such a tender non-judgemental heart and for teachihg. Yoga is so wonderful and to have a wonderful teacher.....now that is a gift from God!
"This yoga studio is where all days should begin and end. The morning classes are the perfect way to set a positive intention for my day, and the 6 pm class is a great way to relax and unwind after a busy day at work."
"I began yoga to improve my flexibility and core strength, and discovered a yoga practice improves many other things! The basics of breathing, staying centered and in the present, and body awareness taught here have helped me in so many aspects of my life. The lessons are simple, the yoga postures can be as easy or as difficult as you choose them to be, and any physical challenge you experience can be addressed. This is a fitness/wellness regime that work for any age, whatever your goals may be".
"I am grateful to have found this studio, and hope to always be able to practice yoga with these wonderful instructors".

"Oh, my life is so different now. Last week I had someone come tell me how different I am now and how glad they are that I have so much happiness and peace in my life. The person told me that they it was the yoga that did it for me. I agree. I cannot imagine what my life would be like if I had never met you. Never underestimate the difference you made and can make for others".
"Sara is inspirational. Although I had tried yoga and did not like it, I loved Sara's classes from the very first time. Sara is so compassionate and accepting, I felt comfortable with her right away. I felt immediate results. My spine is rotated and twisted (scoliosis) and the effects of yoga on my spine have been profound. I quickly gained strength and flexibility in my whole body. Even more of a blessing, Sara introduced me to connecting my body, mind and spirit. This was the beginning of a wonderful journey in which I learned to accept myself and others, focus on my blessings, and relax with what is in each moment. Yoga helped me change my life in many ways- all for the better! Many thanks Sara",

"Sara has guided us over the last three years in so many positive and comforting ways. From beginner classes (for Ray), to restorative classes (for both of us), to meditation and advanced relaxation (for Kelli) and Raindrop Therapy and Reiki (for Ray), and just generally a spiritual, helping presence for both of us whenever needed, Sara provides warmth, energy, friendship and love in all she does."
Ray and Kelli (Edmond, OK)
"I truly have found a "home" at the Yoga Home Of Therapeutics. Sara has created a safe place to be and trust the Yoga practice. I have been coming to the different classes for a month and I can tell that I am more at ease, at peace, and more relaxed. Other friends have noticed the difference and have mentioned to me that I seem more at peace with myself and happier. I can recommend Yoga Home of Therapeutics because I know the teachers are of the highest quality and I feel better, lighter, lighter each time I am there." God bless you Sara!!

The very first class I took from Sara about 5 years ago had a tremendous impact immediately. She knows not only the correct fundamentals about yoga postures, but also knows the exact things to say to touch our core spiritually and emotionally. She sees what everyone is doing and ensures postures are gently and kindly corrected to obtain the best possible results and avoid injuries. Sara’s classes are more than just exercise; they are almost a form of complex therapy that addresses the a person’s entire wellbeing.

Just Wanted to let you know my back, neck ad wrists were hurting this morning and I'd planned on some sort of aerobic exercise but came to your class instead and I'm so glad I did! My back, neck and wrists and more..all feel so much better!
Penney, Okc, OK
I have been interested in learning more about yoga for years but was always very intimidated by it. But when Yoga Home of Therapeutics opened in my neighborhood I knew I had to give it a try. And I'm so glad I went. Sara has given me the most wonderful introduction to yoga. I feel so blessed that Sara and her studio have become a part of my life. Because of the teachers and my newly found practice I will never be the same. In the last six months I have become calmer, stronger and more aware of self.
If you are considering visiting the studio, please do. You will be welcomed with love, acceptance and grace and if you stick with it you will be amazed at what you will gain.

Jancice and I missed you this last retreat, we spoke of how we enjoyed your yoga at the retreat and how soothing it is to be in your class/presence.
Blessings and Peace to you-
Sara has been such a wonderful mentor and teacher for me and for my autistic son these last few months. She meets you right where you are emotionally and physically, and never judges or makes you feel inadequate. My son is very high functioning, but deals with social and motor planning issues which makes it impossible for him to participate in team sports. He has made a true connection with Sara and his yoga classes that has been a joy to be a part of. He is becoming more fit and healthy but, more importantly, making a spiritual connection to another person and a practice that will benefit him for a lifetime. Sara's studio has truly been a place of weekly healing for us.

Thank you so much for helping me to explore so many new areas of yoga and overall wellness. I've always been curious, but you have that way to put me at ease and open my mind to things I didn't even know existed! This is the first time in all of my exercise, training and attending yoga classes times that I truly feel like I am learning and expanding into a life practice.
Tonya T., Okc, ok
In just the short time I have taken classes with you, I am amazed at how much better I feel, how much energy I have, and how much more stamina I have. I am convinced that without a doubt it is because of yoga. Yoga has helpep me find that part of me that is of the Great Spririt. I attended a conference last week. There, I ran into an old friend. She commented on how good I looked and how I was indeed glowing! Thank you for helping me, Sara. Your care and loving attention really help me. I was completely stress free and calm for the rest of the evening. Thanks to you and your loving touch!

In 2009 I was pregnant with my son, I had many complications which resulted in 4 months of bed rest. After I had him in November I noticed that my lower back and hip were sore. This went on for several months. Slowly the pain got worse forcing me to seek medical care. They put me on a few medications and sent me for an MRI. The MRI showed a bulging disc in my lower back pressing on my sciatic nerve. The doctor started talking about different procedures and possible surgery. The very thought of this scared me and my family. I knew something had to be done because it was becoming increasingly difficult to care for my young son, by the end of every night I was bent over at a 90 degree angle in the worst pain of my life. One day someone told me to try yoga first, before any procedures. I got online and searched for yoga studios in my area. I found Yoga Home of Therapeutics. I called and talked with Sara and immediately knew with one phone conversation that I had found my answer to prayer. I have been coming to yoga now for 1 month and already have seen great changes in my body. I am now off of most of my medications and am able to play with my son more and more each day. I will continue to go to classes even after I am completely pain free because I treasure my quiet moments of healing.
Thank you for changing my life, I will be forever grateful.
