Sandy Raper

A student of yoga for over ten years, Sandy began teaching yoga in early 2003. Sandy’s passion to teach comes from a deep desire to serve and share the gift of the practice with as many students as she can.
Sandy has found that through sustained practice as a student her service as a teacher has expanded and in her next steps along this journey she desires to pass along this gift by training teachers to teach yoga and refine their teaching.
Sandy has been inspired by many great yoga teachers and honors every experience and opportunity that she has had to sit under their teachings. Sandy has spent extensive hours of training with her teacher, Rolf Gates (author of “Meditations from the Mat”), completing his 200 hour and 500 hour vinyasa yoga teacher trainings.
Sandy desires to make her classes accessible to as many people as possible. Sandy teaches a subtle, yet powerful, vinyasa flow style. Incorporating alignment principles, as well as, muscular and organic energetics within her teaching allows for success within her students.
