Sarah Jo Lively, Director of Programs

Sarah Jo Lively, ERYT-500
Nebraska State Director | Bellevue, NE

Upon retiring from the US Air Force after 20+ years of honorable service, she felt called to pursue her yoga teacher certification with the hopes of bringing yoga to fellow military veterans and their families.  Though she has been practicing yoga for over 20 years, teacher training set her on a path of deeper exploration and self-discovery. 

She is an ERYT-500 (Registered Yoga Teacher) with Yoga Alliance and holds multiple specialty certifications to include trauma sensitive yoga.  Her educational background includes a BA in Biology, a Graduate’s Certificate in Lifestyle Medicine, and a MS in Health and Wellness. She is currently working towards a PhD in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Biomechanics and Kinesiology.

She is the proud owner of a small yoga studio located in Bellevue, NE—the home of US Strategic Command and Offutt AFB—and a member of the Yoga Health Foundation.
