My Yoga Training

In 2018 I began Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training at Falmouth Yoga Space in Falmouth, Cornwall. www.falmouthyogaspace.co.uk


An amazing time that opened up a whole new chapter in my life.


In 2019 I completed the 250 hour, level 1 teacher training programme that gave me an in depth understanding of yoga poses, yoga breathing, meditation, anatomy and physiology

About the yoga I teach

Vinyasa Yoga

This is a style of yoga that aligns the breath with flowing movement from one yoga pose to the next.


My style of vinyasa is Slow Flow which is a gentler pace of yoga.  I usually theme my classes on an aspect of yoga philosophy and focus on an area of the body i.e. hips, shoulders, core.


My Slow Flow classes aim to help you build strength, flexibility and mobility.


Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga is about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching.  Poses are held for a longer time .  However, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply because props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body.  


Plus there's a healthy, sweet treat at the end!


It's quite a unique experience and a perfect end to your day to relax, renew, rejuvenate and restore.

"Sandra is friendly and her sessions are fun and set at a level to include all ages. Irrespective of ability she encourages everyone in a calm, positive and gentle way.
The studio at the Grove is spacious and the decor and aspect onto the countryside instils a calmness.  I can highly recommend this class."  Nick Leyshon, Cornwall


"Super friendly tuition in an amazing space at The Grove, I would recommend Sandra's yoga to anybody of all skill levels."  Will Hawkins, Cornwall

The classes are light- hearted, friendly and well structured.  Sandra pays great attention to detail, allowing us to move correctly within our limits, gradually increasing our strength and flexibility. I really enjoy the Tuesday session, and look forward to joining Sandra's classes at Jubilee Pool in the near future.  I definitely recommend that you give her classes a go."

Online Yoga Testimonials

I have just started Sandra's online classes, works really well doing it from the comfort of my own home (although it is the only option at the moment). Each step is well articulated and easy to follow, her style of delivery works really well, looking forward to many more!  Charlotte Roberts, Cornwall


I had my first online yoga class with Sandra this evening and really enjoyed it. I love Sandra's style of teaching, which is structured, friendly, professional and hugely beneficial. I didn't even have to leave my home in Ireland to enjoy this class! I would highly recommend Sandra's yoga class from anywhere in the world!  Orla Crean, Ireland


Sandra's online classes are so great! They are easy to follow yet challenging enough. She explains all the asanas, talks you through it and shows them clearly so you can make sure you do them in the right manner. The classes help me to stay in the flow and are a good variation to my own practice. And even though we see each other through a screen, there is a group feeling which makes it so enjoyable in these times. Besides it's fun to be able to join from another country (Netherlands) 😉
I really hope you will keep giving classes and there will be a time when I'll join a live class 😉  Stephanie Van Schie, Netherlands
