Teaching yoga is my true passion, I love sharing this practice with others. I believe this practice is for everyone,  and I encourage students to go on an exploration of their bodies to promote healing. My classes emphasizes safe alignment via clear and balanced joint space through bones and ligaments and movement connected with breath, allowing one's breath to guide their practice without judgments or expectations. I support students to explore their personal edge mindfully through a practice of presence.

About Chandra: 

After discovering a yoga practice in 2006 Chandra realized the power of the mind-body somatic connection and the healing potential of this practice. After completing her 200hr teacher training with Yoga to the People in 2010 she quickly felt compelled to teach more. Immediately after training, Chandra worked from an apprentice teacher over the years into management in 2012 at Yoga to the People. In addition to teaching power-vinyasa classes and leading workshops, Chandra was responsible for general management of the San Francisco studio, studio maintenance, finances, payroll, human resources, providing feedback to teachers and apprentices to facilitate growth.

Chandra has experience teaching teacher-trainers as a Head Coordinator for three 200-hour RYS Vinyasa teacher trainings, and co-lead one Traditional Hot Yoga Intensive Training. Responsibilities included, but not limited to; general management of flow of training, leading dialogue sessions providing feedback to trainers, coordinating lectures and asana sessions, grading quizzes/homework necessary for completion of Yoga Alliance Certification requirements.

With an abundance of teaching experience including professional athletes with the San Francisco Ballet and triathletes with RaceQuest http://race-quest.com/ and many beginning practitioners as well as seniors Chandra can design a class to meet your physical intentions. Whatever reason we choose to practice yoga, the positive effects abound. Ultimately as we dive deep into this practice with an open heart we discover a deep connection to the divine.
