Back Stage with Sandy Byrne
Sandy Byrne… Owner of River Rock Yoga & Wellness Center
E-RYT, Yoga Tune Up® Teacher Trainer, and LMT
I found my way to the mat about 14 years ago. Before that I was a competitive gymnast and coach. I looked shiny and pretty on the outside but my insides where falling apart from all the misuse, overuse and abuse from many years of coaching and gymnastics. Yoga put me back together and made me feel better in all of my bodies.
wind up… how do you wind up, prepare for the week ahead?
Hmmm that’s a hard question because I own a studio and have a family so it’s pretty hard to wind down. I think I’m always wound up! That’s why I do yoga. Its my practice and my teaching that actually ground me and keep me able to do life.
and, when you need to exhale… what’s your other direction?
The things that fill me up and slow me down: Of course my yoga & meditation practice help, but give me a walk in the woods or a day at the beach and I’m good to go. As well as spending time with my family and friends.
