SANDRA JARA

I love the freedom offered by yoga, I have been practicing for over 20 years and have a profound feeling of gratefulness towards my teachers who have helped me build this path. These teachers taught me how to develop my self practice and teach it to others: Danny Paradise, Angelo Cecchi, Antonella Accinelli, Usha Devi, Sindu V. Nayar, Maria Escudero & Lucas Nunes, Ryan Leier, Eddie Modestini and Kristin Bosteels, Dustin Fruson, Arun Ji, Patricia Fernandes, and Louie Ettling.

The study of how the physical body works has been central to my formal education, from my background as a dentist and my knowledge of anatomy I explore body mechanics. The further I study the rest of our being, the more I develop and understanding of how the mind works, especially in managing fear, anxiety, and overcoming trauma through yoga.

I encourage my students to practice with the sound of their own breathing and listening their bodies, how it opens, contracts, releases and how suddenly with an adjustment they can enter the asana and the experience is transformed. Also, I encourage them to feel the body, aligning it, inviting gently to go a little farther, support it, and explore the asana to see what is beyond.
