Yoga and Alexander Technique teacher
New York City, New York


About Sara Carissimo:

I dedicate myself to the inclusivity and the sustainability of yoga practices through both biomechanical and trauma-informed lenses. I have taught yoga full-time for more than ten years, focusing on providing a gradual and safe approach to dynamic yoga. I have been trained to pay close attention to long-term effects of asanas. As part of my curriculum, there are three Yoga Alliance registered teacher trainings (a 200 hrs TT and two 300 hrs TT) and several continuing education courses, a 1600 hrs Alexander Technique teacher certification (Étapp, Apta, Stat), as well as trainings in yoga anatomy and trauma-informed educational choices.

I built my expertise teaching ashtanga yoga, vinyasa flow, aerial yoga, asana technique, and Alexander technique in my hometown (Milan, Italy). I worked with both private and corporate clients, as well as with yoga and fitness studios. I moved to New York at the end of 2021 and I got certified as a TCTSY (Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga) facilitator and as an Accessible Yoga teacher. I teach both in person and online (live-streamed and on-demand classes), in Italian (my native language), English, and French.

I am always open and receptive to coaching and mentorship.
