Sarah Trelease, MA
Sarah graduated from Vassar College with a degree in drama and worked as an actor for a decade in New York City. After 25 years in the city and ready for the adventure of a new town, Sarah moved to Portland in 2010.
Sarah is a longtime student of Shambala and Zen Buddhism because the philosophy and discipline provided her with a way to work with and study the mind. It also tapped into a lifelong curiosity about human motivation and behavior. In addition to her work at Windhorse, Sarah is a teacher of yoga instructors. Over the course of twenty years of instruction, she found that people felt comfortable sharing their mind with her. Called to have a broader impact, Sarah returned to university and received her Master’s of Psychology from Saybrook University in Seattle.
In her spare time, Sarah is a potter, gardener, seamstress and cook. She and her husband share their home with three beloved cats.
