Sandi

sandiSandi is a graduate of Yahweh Yoga, a Christian teaching academy located in Chandler, Arizona. Sandi is a certified Christian Yoga teacher and a Registered Yoga teacher with Yahweh Yoga and Yoga Alliance having satisfied the required 200 hour basic training. She is now credentialed as an E-RYT 200 hour teacher having satisfied more than 2000 teaching hours as well as hundreds of hours attending workshops and classes offered by credentialed yoga teachers. Sandi is currently working towards her E-RYT 500 hour credentials as a Christian Yoga teacher. She is also a certified Level 1 Raw Food Chef through Alissa Cohen Living On Live Foods.

In January 2008 Sandi relocated to Arizona with her husband, Don, from Long Island, New York after working on Wall Street for nearly 30 years. She was determined to leave the hectic lifestyle demanded by New York City and Wall Street behind her, and find a more peaceful and satisfying way of life. After praying and asking for God’s guidance, God opened the door to christian yoga for her. Her journey began one morning when she saw a simple ad in Yoga Journal that simply stated, “Do you love Jesus? and, Do you love yoga?”

After certification,  Sandi began offering classes in her neighborhood.  Y.O.G.A. for the Soul was birthed on May 5, 2009. In 2010 God again moved in her life opening doors, and in November 2010 Y.O.G.A for the Soul Glendale was started.  We started in 1/2 of a 900 sq foot room, but God had bigger plans. He has continued to work in her life and in the life of the studio, and now it has grown from a 900 sq. foot space to over 3000 square feet with two beautiful yoga rooms, Faithful & Grateful, and a huge and inviting reception area.

Sandi is a member of the Church at Sun Valley, and she is committed to the truths of the christian faith. Her passion is to share a proven method of self-care that fosters relaxation and restorative measures for the body, mind, and soul in a worshipful atmosphere that allows the practitioner to be focused on Christ while on their mats. She believes that spiritual, emotional, and physical health in balance is the only way to enjoy total well-being.

Sandi and her husband, Don,  live in the Festival Ranch community in Buckeye, AZ. She is the mother of two adult sons and grandmother to her beloved granddaughter and grandson. In addition to christian yoga, she is active in her church serving in several ministries. She loves the outdoors – gardening, the sunshine, the sea, the mountains, and traveling to new places. Sandi believes she is blessed to be a blessing.

We offer 23 classes per week at Y.O.G.A. for the Soul Monday through Saturday suitable for all levels and abilities. Please check out our class descriptions and class schedule on line.  We are located at 12240 North 51st Avenue on the NWC of 51st Ave. and Cactus Road in Glendale, Arizona.
