Every time you have taken a conscious breath, you have experienced yoga.Yoga is far beyond the physical postures on the magazine cover. Connection to the truth of yoga led Sandy on a wisdom quest beginning with Transcendental Meditation at 11. 70's summers included hitch hiking to Omega Holistic Institute became her summer weekends and retreating at the Feathered Piped Ranch where she was pulled into close and intimate teachings and friendships of Sri T. Krishnamacharya, RamDass, BKS Iyengar, Jack Kornfield, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Tara Brach, and Garmukh Kaur Khalsa.
In the late 80’s and 90’s Sandy continued studying with Sri Dharma Mittra and Brahmanand Stapleton. So much soul and wisdom in it all.
Her young and old life is mainly the practice and path of Raja and Jnana Yoga, holding respect for all paths – they all have something wonderful to offer. Sandy possesses a deep care for my students and offering light on their path with the 200 hour SPIRIT Yoga Teacher Training.
Her public classes invite an internal focus by tracking sensations, concentrating on form, and appreciating the breath as it anchors us in the moment of quiet power. Bodies and minds unite we dwell fully in the present. With presence, an individual sense of spiritual connection can arise spontaneously.
Expect a class that comes from her heart. At times there will some challenge, some stillness, some humor, some gentleness, some inner soul, and some wisdom of yogic philosophy.
She is currently accepting Private Sessions. 4 Class Minimum.
Can I answer any questions for you about my sessions?
