Sandra is a member of the very first cohort at Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) to earn a Master of Science in Yoga Therapy and is now also one of the first to become IAYT Certified. This rigorous degree program is a non-lineage based evidence-informed outcome-oriented program that trains Yoga teachers of all backgrounds how to unite the scientific evidence supporting Yoga as Therapy with desired client outcomes of pain reduction, alleviation of stress, and maintenance of healthy body, mind, and soul. This program is accredited by the Accreditation Committee of the International Association of Yoga Therapists, approved by the Maryland Higher Education Commission and by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. This training acknowledges that diagnosis and treatment of disease conditions or physical injuries is in the scope of practice of licensed medical practitioners and not that of yoga therapists, however with the knowledge and recommendation of your medical practitioner Sandra is qualified to adapt the practices of yoga to help you manage your experiences with these conditions. Contact Sandra if you need a referral to a licensed medical professional or if you wish to connect her with your doctor or therapist.
