Sandi, Owner 300 YT Kay certified
I was introduced to yoga in a church basement at the age of 11. As a teenager, I used the benefits of the poses to help keep me flexible and strong during sports seasons. A few years ago I was on my mat at home when my son, at the time 1, joined me. From that moment on I include my son and daughters in my practice. It has been such a rewarding bonding experience and I became certified to teach not only adults(Hatha Yoga), but I specialize in kids yoga! Before teaching kids I have never had more fun doing something I love. It is a fast paced, fun filled, exhausting part of my day. I am grateful for all the love and support along the way. Thank you to my family and Jenn from Hampton Yoga Studio who gave me the opportunity to teach my classes my way and bring kids yoga to our local children!
I am a beginning certified Svaroopa yoga instructor. I found Svaroopa yoga as a practice to heal my body from years of activity and over use. Svaroopa training has provided me with vitality, strength, flexibility, and a new understanding of what support and release means for my body. Svaroopa yoga is based on “Core Release” or spinal decompression, using precise alignments to create an inner opening from tail to top. You will move without forcing or straining, supporting your body with props and alignments that will release tensions along the spine. This is not a hard exercise practice, but rather a gentle and supportive way for your body to move at your own pace so that you can experience how support equals release. Every class has breath work and deep relaxation, and we will work in themes to help you develop your own daily practice, taking your yoga into daily life so that you can release your own spine.
I am available for private yoga sessions. Contact me at 757-810-0656
I began my journey in yoga in 2008. In a world filled with constant activity and stimuli, yoga is the perfect to still the mind and enjoy the present moment. I have obtained 200 hour certifications in both Hot Yoga (Hot House Yoga/ Yax Yoga Concepts) and Vinyasa Flow (Breathe Yoga Studio) as well as Yin Yoga (Breathe Yoga Studio). My belief is that yoga is not what you think, but what you feel. My classes are infused with stilling the mind and tapping into the present moment with breath and movement.
After being into fitness most of my life I found myself trying new alternative ways of exercise, I was introduced to Yoga through a fitness DVD back in 2009, at the time I was only working out from home being a new father I couldn’t get to the gym. Something about yoga just stuck with me. Although I used it for fitness I practiced yoga on a consistent basis off and on until one day it just clicked. I started to really get into the breathing aspects and the flow of the body and mind connection and less into the fitness. Naturally I am a people person and I began to share my yoga experiences with my close friends. My approach to yoga is a holistic outlook, I am a certified Holistic Life Coach and yoga is an important practice of balancing the mind body and soul. It is my pleasure to show you how yoga can make you whole!
