After a twenty year career working in the forestry industry and raising my family, I decided to take my life in a completely new direction. I wanted an environment where I could feel passionate and excited about what I was doing. One that would help me fulfill a more compassionate life. Bikram Yoga with it’s mind, body and spiritual connection was the obvious choice.
Being a teacher and now owner of The Studio Comox Valley (formerly known as Bikram Yoga Comox Valley,) has exceeded my expectations. I am surrounded by amazing teachers and students, and a fun, loving, kind and positive yoga community. I learn something new every day and I love watching my students bloom in to who they are meant to be.
Sandy completed her Bikram Yoga teacher training in fall 2009, HIIT teacher training in spring 2017 and Yin Yoga Training in winter 2019.
I have resided on the West Coast for the majority of this life and have been actively involved in the world of yoga for over 20 years. Throughout this time, I have built a genuine appreciation for the practice of movement therapy in all it’s forms. My goal as a student and teacher is to hold space, inspire and learn from each practice; arriving in Savasana feeling refreshed and a little bit more balanced.
My yoga guiding style is playful, alignment-based and grounding. Some of my favourite classes have been taught abroad in South East Asia, New Zealand and the USA – outside of my comfort zone. I am certified in Bikram Yoga, RYT300, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, and Therapeutic Yoga. I consider myself to be a life-long learner and am also a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). I was drawn to the practice of massage therapy out of a passion for expanding my knowledge about the human body and an innate desire to help others.
Outside of teaching I’m often found exploring mountains and beaches with my dog and enjoying a great cup of coffee. See you in practice soon!
