Certifications and Education:
|"Back in 2003, at age 72, I started doing yoga with Chandra, not long after I was given 6 months to live after receiving a diagnosis of metastasized melanoma. To fight the cancer, which was everywhere in my body, I started receiving treatments that built up my immune system. I knew that yoga was good at relieving stress and studies showed that stress depresses the immune system. I wanted to do everything I could to strengthen my system so I included yoga with Chandra as part of my health regimen. Not only did yoga help with my moods, but I also started to become more flexible. Jumping forward 14 years….Recently I celebrated my 87th birthday. I truly believe that my regular yoga sessions with Chandra was one of the things that helped save my life and I will always be grateful to my yoga teacher for the part she played in keeping me around long enough to finally see the birth of my grandchildren."|

|"Chandra's gifts as a yoga instructor are a perfect combination of basic poses, hands on demonstration and gentle yet precise coaching. With skill and humor, she has guided me (and many others) to levels of competence I didn't know I could reach. Chandra's recent inclusion of healing yoga philosophy and technique has been especially helpful to my (aging body) The harmony of mind body is what I seek from yoga. Thank You Chandra."|

|"I have had the pleasure of taking yoga classes from Chandra for several years now. Chandra has been teaching for many years and is very knowledgeable not only in the physical aspects of yoga but the spiritual as well. Her dedication to the practice and philosophy of yoga are very evident in her passionate way of life and teaching. I have had the honor lately of having private lessons at my home. She is a welcome reprieve at the end of the week from my hectic and physically challenging job as a dentist. I feel so much better after my session. I truly believe, that if it were not for my yoga, I would not be able to comfortably do my job. She is an amazing teacher and friend."|
