Who am I?

Sara Shah

Hello! I am a meditation teacher and coach (which basically means I help you get what you learned on the cushion into practice in life off the cushion).


I fell in love with meditation at the perfect time in my life but quickly had so many questions: How did I know if I was doing it right? How do I sit? How do I breathe? What do I think? 


Day by day as I learned, I began to share with my friends, family, and community. 


I completed MNDFL meditation studio's 300 hour meditation teacher training course in NYC under Lodro Rinzler. In addition to NYC, I've trained in San Francisco and London.


I practice in the  Zen traditions and my work focuses on self-love, inner-child, and self-healing practices, but I also teach mindfulness-based meditation. I am largely influenced by the teacher Thich Nhat Hahn. 

I am passionate about female focused self-compassion practices and bringing these exercises to communities of all kinds. In caring for everyone else, women often forget to take the time and space to develop self-love (myself included). That is why I started Mother Yin, a holistic women's health resource in the form of a curated newsletter heavily influenced by the self-compassion practices I teach

I am also currently the in-house meditation specialist for Elevate Labs, and develop the meditation lesson curriculum and  write the meditation scripts housed in the Balance meditation app, launched in September 2019.


Thank you for reading a little bit about me.  I look forward to learning a bit more about you...
