Sara Jager: Being in Tune with Your Cycle (ep24)

I always like really encourage women to find what works for them. And I always emphasize, you know, that they are their own guide. They have the authority, it’s their body who will tell them what is the right thing for them to do, and not me or not any other teacher. And you have to learn to listen to yourself. And especially when it comes to of the menstrual cycle, it’s so fascinating.

In episode 24 I welcome Sara Jager, Holistic Health Coach, Embodiment and Empowerment Mentor, Yoga Teacher, Cultural Anthropologist, and Co-founder of Back to Balance Academy for Women.

We talk about the cyclical nature of women and how much we benefit when we acknowledge this in all areas of our lives. That it needs a paradigm shift and some courage to re-integrate this inherent wisdom of our bodies into our business life. Sara also tells her personal transformation story, and how much she learned from that, and more.

Background and contact

Sara Jager is a Holistic Health Coach, Embodiment and Empowerment Mentor, Yoga Teacher, and Cultural Anthropologist. She’s also the Co-founder of Back to Balance Academy, with the intention to make it normal for women to embrace and celebrate their menstrual cycle and experience hormonal health, so that they can thrive. Besides holding space for mindset and energy transformations, her emphasis is on creating practical and sustainable changes by designing a cycle friendly lifestyle.

After experiencing burnout at a young age, her healing journey started with moving to New Zealand, learning from Maori healers, plant medicine, undertaking a shamanic medicine woman training, learning about nutrition at retreat centers and organic and permaculture farms. Interest in holistic health led her to study at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and complete several Yoga Teacher Trainings.

Working with women in the field of wellness, she couldn’t help but notice that despite all the tools and practices, the struggle to sustain healthy habits in the long run was still present. After learning that the key to understanding women’s needs lies in the menstrual cycle, which affects all areas of life, she created her signature practices that support women to adapt how to eat, move, work, create and relate according to the different phases of the cycle. With the intention to make it normal for women to embrace and celebrate their menstrual cycle and experience hormonal health, so that they can thrive she co-founded Back to Balance Academy for Women.

Sara weaves together holistic nutrition, self care practices, yoga, mindfulness, meditations and embodiment practices as well as womb, energy and archetype work. Besides holding space for mindset and energy transformations, her emphasis is on creating practical and sustainable changes by designing a cycle friendly lifestyle.
