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.

Caroline Besley

Caroline has been practicing yoga since 1998 and dancing since birth. She has an innate curiosity about the world, and loves how yoga teaches her something new every single day. She encourages her students to question, learn, and discover new things about their bodies, their minds, and the world around them.

 

Her teaching style and practice are influenced by the many exceptional teachers she has had the opportunity to study with, including Marylou McNamara, Margaret Townsend, and Mary Pappas-Sandonas. She earned her 200 hr RYT from the Dallas Yoga Center.

Caroline also draws from her dance background, bringing joy and freedom of movement into her teaching.

Mary Kimberlin

Mary is an advanced certified Rolfer, as well as a yoga instructor in the Iyengar and Anusara yogic traditions. Mary has been studying and practicing Structural Integration (Rolfing) for eighteen years, and completed her advanced Rolfing training in Europe in 1999. She has also had additional training in Cranial Sacral and Visceral Manipulation. She has practiced yoga since 1990 and has taught since 1995.

 

Mary's extensive Rolfing background gives her unique insight into the numerous muscular connections which control the mechanical movements of the skeletal frame. In addition to her experience through Rolfing, her own ongoing yoga practice further deepens her understanding of anatomy and the way the body moves within each pose.

 

Through this unique vantage point, Mary's analysis of each individual's patterns enables them to learn how to use their own body to help restore balance and flexibility.

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.
