Sandy found the importance of maintaining a regular yoga practice as a former Wall Street floor trader on the New York Stock Exchange. She loved the way it brought a sense of peace into her mental space after hectic days on the trading floor. This spiritual component is still what Sandy values most about her yoga practice today.
Her thoughtful and fun classes feature signature Yoga Shanti sequencing with an emphasis on maintaining a healthy spine, creating spacious joints, and a balanced nervous system. Sandy wants students to better get to know themselves and be their own witness in the journey of their own yoga practice. She is grateful to be continue learning with her primary teachers Colleen Saidman Yee & Rodney Yee. Her classes are offered online and in person at Yoga Shanti in Sag Harbor, NY.
Aside from practicing and teaching yoga, Sandy loves to hang with her French Bulldog named Biff, dance to guilty pleasure hip hop songs, and cheer on her 6 time Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots.
