Pauses grant the ability to make the best decision in each moment, to see more clearly - and we can practice pauses in thought, in motion, and between every inhale and exhale.
Like many yogis, it was an injury (shoulder) that led Sandy to time on the mat, but it was the unexpected experiential shifts that made her fall in love with yoga - learning how to stay in dialogue with each moment, not through words, but via sensations & awareness. Sandy completed a 200-hour RYT certification under PranaVayu founder, David Magone. PranaVayu is a unique style of vinyasa yoga that makes mind and body transformations more efficient through strategic sequencing, principles of skeletal alignment, and guided meditation. In addition to David Magone, she is particularly inspired by and trains with yogis Dan Steel, Ame Wren, Goldie Graham, and Caitlyn Visconte. Sandy finished an advanced teacher training with Ame Wren (founder of The Boston Yoga School), and learned from Raghunath in India on a yoga pilgrimage. Her personal study of traditional Yogic & Buddhist philosophy and practices continues to deepen. Classes are physically challenging yet within reach for wide range of abilities, and offer a healthy antidote to the stresses of everyday life, an invitation to play, and an opportunity for reflection. Expect alignment cues and creative sequences that will shift your focus inward and let you lose (and find!) yourself in the magic of movement. She believes that authenticity & awakening are cultivated through inquiry -- flowing with the breath on the mat is an amazing place to start. "In my breath, I am home."
