About the Author: Sara Hoy
Sara Hoy (MS, ERYT-500, CPT) is a published author and yoga teacher trainer based in Stockholm Sweden. She is currently doing her PhD at The Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences (GIH), and she holds a Bachelor's degree in Public Health from Karolinska Institute and a Master’s degree in Exercise Science from GIH. Earlier, she has worked in research projects involving yoga and exercise at the Center for Psychiatry Research and Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. As part of the team at the Nordic Yoga Institute, Sara educates yoga teachers in both the 200 and 300 hr programs. When she's not conducting research she holds workshops, lectures and educates various groups on how to take a scientific approach to yoga. Her work turns yoga research, public health, and exercise science into actionable knowledge that can be used on the mat, in the gym, and in everyday life. Her first book ‘Yoga, Science & Facts’ (currently available in Swedish as ‘Yoga, vetenskap och fakta - därför fungerar det’) was released in March, 2019 by Sweden’s largest publisher, Bonnier Fakta.
