Sarah Jane Shangraw is a Boston-based meditation teacher, Insight Yoga mentor, and end-of-life doula with more than a decade of experience encouraging presence, peace, and purpose among her students and clients.
Sarah Jane's interest in Buddhism, yoga, and psychology is long-standing, and in her teaching she weaves together their methods in an informed and inspired way. Her passion for using inner methods to support people through changes and transitions is informed by her own experiences with divorce, step-parenting, and the deaths of loved ones.
In 2018 Sarah Jane earned a rare endorsement to teach Insight Yoga from its founder Sarah Powers. She has numerous certifications and identifies as a life-long learner, currently immersed in a two-year meditation teacher training with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach.
Sarah Jane retreats in silence annually and works to uncover her unconscious bias in an effort to keep her practice and teaching fresh and responsive. In addition to her classes, coaching, and courses, she offers training to women incarcerated at the Massachusetts Correctional Institution-Framingham.
Sarah Jane is also a musician and enjoys spending time at her tiny cottage in upstate New York.
