About the Therapist

Sara was born in Yugoslavia, was raised in Croatia, and went to University in Italy. She found that there is much more in life then what it seems; stars and clouds where seen as messengers of the infinite. One day the pull and push and call was so strong that she embarked to a Journey: Auroville – Integral Yoga.  She’s been living in Auroville since 2008 where she found home, family, friends and a lot to explore. She has been working in different services, farms, forests and engaged in communication with Volunteers from all over the world. She has been training and practicing shiatsu since a few years.
