Sandra Kessel (E-RYT 500) moved to the United States from Germany in 1998, where she had lived for 18 years. Here she discovered yoga. She immediately felt at home; being reminded by the expansive and in-depth study possibilities of yoga because of her Master degree in Geology. Sandra has been teaching alignment-based yoga since 2008, and her focus lies in maintaining and increasing the functionality and sustainability of her students’ practice. Sandra’s classes are inclusive and approachable to every level of practitioner, and she is known for her warmth, humor and humility. Sandra’s keen observation skills and clear instructions are informed by an outstanding pose knowledge developed through extensive training. Noah Mazé, Christina Sell and Dr. Douglas Brooks have been most influential to her practice and teaching. Sandra currently lives and loves in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
