Sandra is a RYT 200 through Yoga Alliance and recently completed her F.L.Y. Aerial yoga teacher training at the The Yogi Treehouse school. In addition, she is working on her 300 hour advanced yoga teacher training with Albina and Roger Rippy. Currently, she is digging deeper on her yoga sutras studies with her mentor Ricky Tran.
Her yoga journey started about 15 years ago and it was a natural transition from Pilates. Initially her yoga practice was mostly physical but over time it became a practice of personal liberation because it gave her tools to work and connect with her inner-self. Meditation is in her daily practice and she believes breath work and awareness is the essence of a mindful yoga practice on and off the mat.
Aerial yoga is her new passion. She teaches both traditional yoga and hybrid yoga which combines yoga poses with aerial style utilizing a hammock for a weightless feeling.
“Every time I step on the mat it is a chance to begin again and I love sharing the yoga bliss with my students.“
Kat has been teaching yoga for six years and is a 500 RYT.
Kat believes everything is as it should be, especially, where your body takes you each time you practice yoga. No need to push yourself or be excessive. You are right where you are supposed to be in that moment, so, feel it and let go of any expectations that you may have about what your body should or should not be doing. Her teaching style focuses on breathing and deepening body awareness as yogis move through mindfully constructed sequences on their mat. She believes yoga should be inclusive of all bodies, ages, and abilities.
Debbie's journey into yoga began in cycling. She was taking cycling classes with Lifetime cycle club. She was looking for something to balance her routine and found a yin yoga class she would attend after her cycle workout. She then started to add vinyasa to her practice. The stretching asanas felt good, the core work helped her cycling, and the meditation helped ease the chatter in her mind. The more she practiced the more she felt the need to share her experience. She completed her 200hr training at Lifetime Fitness is December of 2013, and went on to complete her 300hr through LifePower Yoga in April of 2017. In between she got certified in Yoga Bridge to teach yoga to cancer patients ans survivors in 2014 and Functional Anatomy of Yoga in 2020. Yoga is an integral part of her life and she loves sharing her passion for practice with her students.
