Sandra is an experienced and passionate rock climbing coach and yoga teacher, with an extensive sports background which includes Brazilian Capoeira, Volleyball, Handball and Cycling.
She has been climbing since 2007 and 4 years later, she decided to quit her role as a Marketing and Events Manager for a music festival to dedicate her life to climbing, working as an instructor/coach, route setter, duty and operations manager at various walls across the South East of England.
Sandra has been practising yoga for over 15 years, and she is a Yoga Alliance Experienced Teacher.
Over the years she has dedicated herself to teaching yoga to a wide range of people, mostly climbers and sportspeople, helping them to discover its benefits to support themselves within their own discipline.
Her lessons consist of sequences specially designed for the needs of her students, working on strengthening agonistic and antagonistic muscles, developing balance and body positioning skills, flexibility and mindfulness, with breathing and concentration exercises which are useful tools for improving an athlete’s head game. They aim to encourage students to start developing a home practice with correct alignment and technique, avoiding the risk of injury.
“My yoga practice is well reflected in the way I climb and teach climbing, with detailed attention to perfect technique and body awareness.“
Sandra is also a full-time mum! 🙂
