Sarah Cavrak holds a PhD in Cognitive Sciences, is an international yoga & meditation teacher, Reiki Master, and writer. Foundationally fascinated by the human psyche from a young age, Sarah has discovered profound insight into the fundamental “why” questions of Life, by studying the “how” questions of the mind. 

Her areas of research expertise center on implicit memory mechanisms, decision processes, and their intersection with religious belief systems and moral judgments.  Her research has been published in several high impact journals, such as: Memory & Cognition, Applied Cognitive Psychology, and The International Journal for the Psychology of Religion. Find her list of publications here.


A student for life, Sarah is in constant evolution, fine-tuning her body, mind, and spirit through the practices of yoga, meditation, writing, and ceremony. The journey of her heart and wild soul have called her to teach and find healing in the rainforests of Costa Rica, the mountains of Guatemala, and the coastal areas of Colombia. She is currently completing her 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training with mentor Avani Gilbert at the Caribe Yoga Academy.

Sarah is also a board director of Moon Cycle Medicine, and a core volunteer with the Portland chapter of The Surfrider Foundation.
