The Heart of Practice

Vijñāna Yoga

The concept of  Vijñāna Yoga expresses the spirit of practice. It is a knowledge arising from an inner clarity revealed by personal experience. It is giving recognition to something that has always been there : practicing, understanding & feeling –  from Inside! It is a practice of mind and body, which strives for simplicity while seeking precision in posture.  It encourages you to see and understand from within in order to act skillfully in the world.

Back to tradition


Traditionally yoga has always been taught in private, one-on-one meetings between the teacher and the student. This was to allow the teacher to observe the student’s every movement, breath, ailments, and from this ‘prescribe’ a sequence of asanas and exercises based on their individual needs. Helping to focus on your unique needs and goals, is my intention as a teacher.  Apart from that 1-to-1 sessions  allow you to ask questions and get feedback in real-time, which isn’t always possible in a group setting. 

Moments to remember

Partner Up

I’m looking forward to being a competent partner in planning and manifesting one of your future retreats. My intention is to lead your participants to a healthier and well-balanced life. My wish is to be able to accompany them the best I can on their individual yoga journey. I try as best as possible to tailor my teachings accordingly to their needs. I am ready to embark on this journey with you . Are you? Let´s  meet up!

My Heart of Practice


The practice of Vijnãnã Yoga allows me to connect with my true nature, who I am. Being aware of my body, it offers me a practice from within. It links the intelligence of the body with the adventure of consciousness.
Through meditation, breath control, posture and the study of texts, it teaches me that yoga is NOT a work- out, it is self-inquiry and deep transformation.
If my words resonate with you, follow me and let’s connect.

Why All Life Is Yoga?


I was very lucky to experience private sessions with Sandra. Her knowledge and attention helped me unlock the next steps in my own practice. She tailored the sessions to my needs and I could feel immediate results! I highly recommend 🙂 Thank you so much!! 


Excellent yoga session on the beach. Welcoming, calming and well explained practice. Each movement broken down to understand the fundamental parts of the movement before piecing together. All abilities catered for in a kind, compassionate way. Will definitely be back next holiday to Portgual. Thankyou


Sandra is an exceptional yoga instructor. In the  private yoga class my friends and I attended, Sandra offered something for everyone – a combination of breathwork, flow and exercises to build strength and balance. Sandra explained the techniques clearly and supported us to try new and challenging poses. I highly recommend Sandra’s classes.


Schöner und entspannter Einstieg in unseren Urlaub als Session am Praia Grande. Sandra legt viel Wert auf die richtige Atmung und lässt sich und ihren Teilnehmern viel Zeit in den einzelnen Übungen. Zum Schluss das Loslassen war noch einmal etwas ganz Besonderes, vielen herzlichen Dank Sandra 🧘🏻‍♀️

It´s all the Little moments that make life a BIG adventure!
