Hi I'm Sara Lystbæk. As long as I remember, I’ve had a deep-felt desire to explore the never-ending mystery of the human body. Since my early years in school, I was searching answers from books and teachers on how the body functions and how to nurture vitality and radiance in everyday life.
Fast forward 20+ years, I was living in Copenhagen working as a medical scientist. I had received my Bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition and my Master’s degree in Human Biology in 2017 and was now a hard-working scientist, trained to see health and healing in a science-based way.
Since I never really found myself fully comfy and fulfilled in my lab coat (knowing that there was much more to explore in life), I suddenly found myself exploring the business world as an IT consultant for 4 years. Along the way I fell in love with yoga and became a yoga teacher. On the inside of the fancy business suit there was a sensitive, soft spirit, searching for meaning in life.
On the outside, it looked like I was living a great life. I had a seemingly perfect partner, a prestigious and well-paid career, and lived in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Yet, I felt like I was slowly dying on the inside.
My whole life I had constantly been on a path of striving, achieving and being perfect in EVERY aspect of my life. Not because anyone told me to be. But because it was my own standard and my way to feel good enough and at peace with myself.
As I approached my 30s, I felt hollow inside as never before. Everything began to fall apart internally and externally, and the old ways of being just didn’t make sense anymore.
But it was in this “falling apart” that everything actually fell into place.
When my life fell apart, I finally realized just how misguided I had been by my own mind.
As I was constantly searching for happiness in perfection and outer achievements, I didn’t realize that the most meaningful thing that could ever happen to me, was already inside of me.
One of my big moments of transformation was when I met SOMA Breath.
As I began practicing SOMA Breath everyday, I felt more and more strong, happy and in contact with the powerful current of energy inside my body and heart. It was literally like I woke up from a long sleep. I went from a stressed, anxious and perpetually unhappy control-freak to a joyful, light-hearted and inspired being.
I realised that I would never really find deep peace and sincere joy in this world, unless I digged for the power and unconditional happiness inside myself.
And importantly, I realised that our breath is a vital pathway into seeing and acknowledging our own truth and power.
So I set out to explore the depth of breathwork and share it with the world to help others find true purpose from within.
If you resonate with my story and energy, I’d love to be there for you.
I honor you for showing up to this work at this time. I believe in you, your power and all you’ve got to offer.
With so much love,
