Testimonials from Students:
“Sandy’s yoga and pranayama teachings have completely transformed my life. Before I became her student, my alignment and yoga postures were causing me pain. She not only helped relieve my pain with asanas and breathing techniques, but also paid close attention to gently correcting my form and alignment during our yoga sessions. She is attentive and intuitive. She provides a relaxing and peaceful environment to absorb and learn yoga, which helps me progress towards my spiritual studies. Her pranayama instructions have deepened my meditation, and have provided me with a valuable tool to become still, turn my senses inwards, and calm my mind during the workday and before meditation. Her wealth of knowledge and experience also helps strengthen the mind-body connection, turning my yoga practice into a more blissful, mindful practice. I am truly grateful for her life changing guidance and teachings.” -M.S.
“I have been practicing with Sandy for two years in private classes. She is an intuitive and thoughtful teacher and I appreciate her ability to tailor our sessions. She combines a physical practice with spiritual one. She is helping me to gradually make progress towards more advanced postures like the supported headstand.” – M.C.
