Sandy has been sharing her passion of  teaching yoga since 2005 to many diverse groups, including senior citizens, veterans, corporate employees, teens in a shelter, and prison inmates. She completed 500 hours of advanced teacher training at Kripalu in 2010. She is certified in Mindful Yoga Therapy for Veterans with PTSD. Sandy will continue to be first a student, then a teacher.

The joyful spirit that she brings to her teaching encourages others to transform their lives through the practice of yoga. 

Sandy is a product of her profession having overcome her own adversities by studying yoga techniques and disciplines. She teaches with a flare and captivation that guides her students to a new level of self awareness.  She believes wholeheartedly in the healing power of yoga which led to her to become a Level One Certified Practitioner in LifeForce Yoga (Yoga for Depression) with Amy Weintraub.  Lifeforce Yoga is intentionally designed to work with stress and difficult emotions. 

Sandy is currently enjoying a unique opportunity to work with graduate students and faculty at the University of Connecticut and Harvard University in a National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded study of yoga for stress management.  Sandy is lecturing and teaching Kripalu yoga at UCONN’s main campus through June of 2016.  Researchers hope that this work will help them develop a tool to measure essential properties and benefits of yoga. 

Sandy is also an Advanced Reiki Practitioner.

Now taking appointments for private and small group yoga sessions.



I offer body-centered yoga therapy for individuals struggling with life challenges.  My intention is to find what works to improve their quality of life through yoga practices and philosophy.

















Disclosure:  I am not a psychotherapist nor do I diagnose or treat clients.
