“Life isn't going to look like I wanted it to. I'm not able to have the child that I wanted, but who knows what's next? And it's clear I can't go on like I am. Maybe it's time to find new possibilities.” - Sarah Jane Smith

Sarah Jane Smith Lyons is an embodiment teacher and mindset coach who helps fellow childless not by choice women integrate grief, amplify agency and embody possibility.

During her career as yoga teacher, Sarah Jane taught strength and resilience to her students. When she developed fibroids and had multiple pregnancy losses, Sarah Jane found herself navigating deep grief and figuring out how to find fulfillment in her life again.

She eventually brought what she learned through her own journey of being childless not by choice to her yoga classes and beyond. She now helps other women who are childless not by choice find strength in their own grieving and create an empowering life.
