The Language of Touch

Yoga Teacher Training in the Finger Lakes
Yoga assisting louder than words

8 Hours of Yoga Assists Will Include

Touch is the first sense we acquire and the secret weapon in healing with is the true essence of Yoga.

The impact of touch can be used to soften our edges, to nurture a moment or an invitation to deepen into our vast temple we call the body. 

In Hatha Yoga we also use touch to create a better and safer physical alignment with our anatomy, while giving you freedom to enjoy what your body was born to enjoy.

If you need a refresher, missed out on learning heartfelt touch through the hands and body, this program might be for you.

Sandy Hicks Yoga and Meditation Teacher.

About Your Guide

Sandy Hicks, World Yoga Federation Leader, Yoga Alliance CEU teacher, Children's Yoga and PreNatal Yoga Certified, Y12SR, Yin & Restorative Certified

Influenced by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi at age 11 to pursue Raja Yoga, Sandy began numerous pilgrimages to study with  swamis being a Jnana yogi at heart.

Drawing from many years of discipleship of yoga as taught by Sri Swami Satchidananda, she has evolved towards an interdisciplinary appreciation and approach for the rainbow of consciousness from the view of the mutli-dimensional Self.

For this presentation, it was her advanced assist training with Brahmanand Stapleton that increased her connection to heart energy & physical connection that one needs when guiding a hatha yoga session . 

This offering is presented from a place of need and a place of deep wisdom. Sandy only enjoys sharing that which she feels she has deep insight and connection for. 

Expect this presentation to be one that includes hard work but infused with humor, ease and compassion.

If you have any questions or desire a one on one consult with her, please feel free to give her a call.
