Therapeutic Yoga


This class is taught by:

Sandi T. Tindal

Yoga came to Sandi during a very difficult time in her life. In 2008 she suffered a severe mental breakdown during her career as an electrical engineer. She had reached a point in my life where the pains and trauma of her past could no longer be hidden or stay quiet anymore. Her therapist recommended yoga as part of her healing. Sandi’s first several months with yoga were spent simply learning how to breathe again. As she began to explore the postures she was able to manage and overcome depression and anxiety. Sandi came to understand the importance of the health of the whole person: mind, body and spirit.
 
 

Sandi continued her exploration and study of yoga, training and receiving her 200 hour RYT in 2014. She is continuing her training in yoga therapy and is a member of the IAYT (International Association of Yoga Therapists). Sandi believes that yoga therapy is a wonderful tool for healing and recovery.

 

Sandi’s background in engineering is now very much a part of her teaching. It's with that mindset that she teaches students to connect with healthy and safe anatomical alignment and transitions in their practice. As a teacher, it's her goal to help students find a sense of joy, steadiness and ease in yoga.

Cheryl King

Cheryl King first encountered yoga and meditation in the 1980’s as a college student. Studying Buddhism with Professor Frederick J Streng, she became fascinated with the philosophy, ritual, and beauty of the Buddhist meditation practice and made her first trip to Thailand for a cultural immersion upon graduation.
 
Cheryl’s teaching style is interdisciplinary with emphasis on gentle movement and anatomical alignment. She encourages students to find and sustain a moment-to-moment experience through the practice of yoga and meditation.
 

Cheryl brings a spirit of loving kindness to her own practice and her teaching. Her life’s work involves exploring and teaching connection to self and one another.

 

Cheryl received her RYT 200 Hr at Dallas Yoga Center.

Allows students to re-educate movement patterns, as well as increase body intelligence and awareness with yoga postures. In this class modifications and props are used generously in order to target specific injuries or concerns. Poses are mostly passive with some core stabilization. The aim is to learn how to adapt and modify postures in order to best serve each individual. This class is recommended for those working to recover range of motion from prior injuries, learning how to intelligently re-engage after full recovery from surgery, and older students needing to modify their practice.

This class is appropriate for students who have been released from their doctor’s care and have completed physical therapy. Parameters for participation include: the ability to get up and down off the floor without assistance, freedom from medical devices, and no active disc issues. Students with joint replacements may need a private session prior to joining series to learn modifications specific to their replacement and range of motion.

Please feel free to email or call the front desk for additional information or questions regarding this class and to determine if private instruction, a session with one of our holistic practitioners, or a referral to a physician, is a more appropriate direction for your specific circumstances.
