Your Host Sandra Leigh 🌈 ✨
Namaste Friend and welcome! ✨🙏✨ My yoga journey began when I started attending regular Hatha Yoga classes in Vancouver, BC, at the West End Community Centre with Lilian Bianchi, in 1991. As a young woman, yoga, health and personal development peaked my interest, and for a time, I attended every class with Lilian that I could! Yoga changed my life! Then, in 1996, with Lilian's encouragement, I went away for a year's stay at Yashodhara Ashram, near Nelson, BC, where I completed a yoga development course and worked on a "karma yoga" program with the youth group, there. I was later certified to teach by Sandra Sammartino, who is a famous pioneer of some of the first Hatha yoga teacher training courses in Vancouver. I have also trained internationally with Dru UK, based in North Wales, UK and in India.
I began offering my first yoga classes at the West End Community Centre in Sept. 1997 ►► Fast forward to 2017! It's been a delightful surprise to have shared the gifts of yoga with so many amazing people, over the years.
As the Host, writer and producer of our community television show, ' Yoga Moves for Every Body', I'm excited to see our TV show helping reach even farther with the 'yoga moves' and of course, our wonderful yoga music (the soundtrack) is reaching more listeners, too!
I presently teach in Vancouver, a wide age range (2yrs. - 92 yrs.). I have developed 'Yoga Moves for Every Body' from nearly 30 years of yoga research experience and twenty years on the mats, teaching all kinds of bodies, exclusively for Vancouver Parks and Recreation through the community centres.
You are invited to visit my other project, Give Peace a Chant for full audio previews of my music, composed, created and produced especially for yoga and dance, sound healing, and mantra meditation. I hope you enjoy perusing my music and video collection. Thanks for dropping by! 🌈 ✨
