In 2006, Sandra completed an Advanced Teacher Training Course with International presenter Donna Farhi, author of Yoga Mind, Body and Spirit and the Breathing Book and has continued to study regularly with Donna Farhi. In 2008 she was selected to assist Donna Farhi and Marcia Monroe during the 21 day Advanced Teacher Training Course and continues to assist Donna during Workshop Intensives within Australia when ever possible. Sandra has also completed Level 1 Somatic Exercise Coach training with Martha Peterson, director of Essential Somatics.
In 2012, the Director of Yoga Spirit Studios, Tina Shettigara, appointed Sandra as the principle teacher for the Teacher Training Program run from Yoga Spirit Studios.
Sandra’s passion is to ignite a student’s inquisitiveness to discover their full potential on the mat. Drawing on a diverse range of experience, Sandra interweaves movement inquires into her teaching and allows time for students to explore and understand how their body and mind responds to movement and controlled stresses. Sandra doesn’t believe that asana practice needs to be complicated to reap the benefits but more importantly the practice serves us in keeping a sense of wellbeing and moving through life with ease.
