“I took Sandi’s YTT at a time in my life where I needed a change of pace. I wasn’t sure if I would use my training to teach but Sandi facilitated a nurturing learning environment that allowed me to grow in many valuable ways. I finished the training feeling equipped and confident, more aware of myself and of those around me. It was truly a wonderful experience I would recommend time and time again.”
“The 200 hour YTT program at the The Yoga Loft far exceeded my expectations. Sandi is knowledgeable, respectful and a very well thought out teacher. I enjoyed every moment of this program and I highly recommend to anyone interested in doing their Yoga teacher training!”
“I took the YTT 200 program with Sandi. She is very well educated and teaches from a very practical perspective. She provides real life examples and has lots of resources to refer to! I would highly recommend Sandi’s classes and her YTT program. I am thankful for my opportunity to learn from her.”
“I completed the 200-hour YTT course in the Fall of 2019. Such topics as breathing, anatomy, and the alignment of the body doing yoga poses were taught. I was given an appreciation for the ethics, philosophy and history of yoga.
I learned how to properly sequence classes, and I was afforded the opportunity to practice my new skills by conducting numerous practice teaching sessions.
I now have the confidence and knowledge to teach. Sandi is a skilled and knowledgeable teacher whose classes were enjoyable, challenging and informative. She is an excellent resource person.”
“If you’re considering the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at The Yoga Loft, do it! Sandi’s wealth of knowledge in yoga, anatomy, movement, mindfulness, and teaching is incomparable. She’s developed a robust curriculum that prepares you as a skilled yoga teacher. This is an inclusive program for all to learn the foundations of teaching yoga. Sandi’s love for yoga and teaching shines in this program. I highly recommend Yoga Teacher Training at The Yoga Loft for those looking to teach yoga with confidence and skill.“
“I have been attending yoga classes for about 2 years now and I am addicted to Sandi’s classes. Sandi’s classes are attended by a large demographic. Her genuine caring of your well-being and her sincerity come out in her yoga teaching . She has an instinct on what poses the class participants need. She knows her students, greets them by name, and when someone new attends she introduces herself and asks them if they are new to yoga. She makes everyone feel welcome. She offers options for poses such as if you have problem areas or how to avoid injury, as well as more challenging poses, if you are wanting to push yourself.”
“As a masters aged obstacle course racer, most of my training is hard on my body, running, lifting, crawling, carrying. Being able to attend Sandi’s restorative yoga class provides me with an active recovery day rather than just a do nothing rest day. Sandi begins each class with quiet moments to relax your mind, calm your breathing and become aware of your body; bringing focus to the present moment. For me personally, this draws parallels to my martial arts training. Sandi has a very calming demeanour, she is both welcoming and accommodating to individual requests. Her vast knowledge and love of yoga allows her to use a wide variety of poses and stretches, each held for longer duration to both lengthen sore or tight ligaments and muscles as well as improve joint range of motion. She always provides easier and more advanced options for each pose thereby ensuring the pose can be done by advanced or beginner attendees. Sandi also will try to help anyone struggling with a pose ensuring each person achieves maximum benefit from the session. This enhances the personal experience of the session. I believe it is not coincidental that I have some of my best training days the day after her restorative class. I have found it so helpful that I try to incorporate some of her poses and stretches into my pre-race day routine.”
“Having participated in Sandi’s Power, Flow and Restorative classes for 2 1/2 years, I have high regards for Sandi and her classes. Sandi is a dedicated professional. She is precise, and so inviting to ALL participants who come to her classes. Sandi has a unique ability to nurture, motivate and share her yoga knowledge to make the classes an amazing experience. “
