Sandra fell in love with hot yoga while living in Koh Samui, Thailand more than 10 years ago. When she was 16 years old she suffered a severe back injury that seriously affected her mobility and caused excruciating pain. For many years she went through all sorts of treatments and therapies, ranging from pleasant to very painful, orthodox to alternative. Yet, her back still wasn’t right.
After she attended her first hot yoga class her body started screaming; “more!” For a few months Sandra attended a class daily, sometimes even twice a day. She learned how to identify the right signals and recognize her limits. She left Thailand after 5 months with a completely healthy back. The pain never returned. Her doctors are still scratching their heads wondering how this happened.
Now, for Sandra hot yoga is no longer about recovering from injury, but about staying healthy, becoming increasingly fit and looking good. It’s also about having fun and sharing enjoyable moments with others, which is why she is aiming to create an environment in Amsterdam where everyone feels able to do just that.
