Best gift we can give ourselves is the quality of our time, to be present with ourselves and this is exactly to learn to live like that.

Sara Alavi’s background offers students a profoundly deep knowledge into her yoga teachings. She managed a local Edmond yoga studio for some years before opening Yoga Home of Therapeutics in 2009. In her many years of learning and teaching yoga, she has worked with students from a variety of backgrounds and limitations including Veterans and students with autoimmune disorders, mental health conditions, physical injuries, and many others. She has accumulated over 250 hours of continuing education since receiving her RYT-200. Her experience and education culminate in a variety of topics: therapeutic yoga, meditation, quantum tapping, hypnosis and hypnotherapy, Raindrop and essential oil massage, Reiki, essential oils, past life regression, and many more modalities. She has combined and applied all of her teachings in working with the students in her studio, Veterans at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Oklahoma City, and patients at Oakwood Springs Behavioral Hospital in Edmond.

In contrast to Alavi’s seasoned yoga career, daughter Laili Boozary brings a new and fruitful perspective to her teaching. She was introduced to yoga growing up as Alavi went through her training and education. As she grew, she applied yoga philosophies to the growing pains that inevitably arise through adolescence and saw first-hand how powerful yoga’s teachings can be both on and off the mat. She went on to earn her Registered Yoga Teacher 200-hour Certification in 2016. Since then, she has taught hundreds of yoga students at the University of Oklahoma. While earning a Bachelors of Health and Exercise Science and a Masters in Health Promotion. Her Master’s thesis centered on the efficacy of mindfulness as a tool for health behaviors in young adults. With her personal experiences with yoga paired with the evidence-based knowledge she gained through her academic career, her unique perspective considers the implications of yoga for the community at large.
About Our Programs
Our programs begin with the foundational aspects of yoga, and will emphasize the therapeutic nature of yoga throughout. The program teaches students yoga philosophy and techniques (including Ayurveda, aromatherapy, multiple different yoga styles), anatomy and physiology, sequencing, and business aspects of yoga all within the perspective of therapeutics.
In addition to these formalized teachings, students will have the distinct benefit of cultivating their self-awareness, self-understanding, and mindfulness through introspective activities designed to help with introspection. Many times, students not wanting to become yoga teachers have joined the 200-hour YTT for this purpose alone. Indeed, as they grow personally and profoundly, they are able to change their lives, cultivate happiness, and bring healing to those around them. Truly, this program can be beneficial for personal growth regardless of past experience or future goals, especially for those recovering from trauma, such as veterans or trauma survivors.
