Sandi Tindal, Teacher & Founder of Dallas Aqua Yoga

Sandi Tindal comes from a noteworthy career in engineering and has applied the rigorous thinking and creativity she cultivated in that profession to her work as a yoga teacher - with a high degree of sensitivity and care, she skillfully adapts the ancient teachings and tools of yoga to help others experience their personal pathways for health, healing and transformation in the context of modern life. In addition to continuing her professional Yoga Therapist training under Gary Kraftsow of the American Viniyoga Institute, she is actively engaged in providing educational seminars for members of the Aquatics Therapy and Rehab Institute (ATRI). She provides creative and intelligent applications of therapeutic Viniyoga to PTs, PTA, OTs, recreational therapists and many other movement professionals at ATRI's educational events.


Sandi is very interested in making yoga accessible for disadvantaged and disabled populations. She has provided yoga classes for residents of a local safe house for survivors of human trafficking and has worked on establishing a partnership with a local VA hospital to enhance their aquatics program with yoga.


Sandi enjoys studying from different wisdom traditions and finds that elements of the yoga sutras appear in palpable, practical ways in the movement of her life when she is really paying attention. She is fascinated by the idea of overcoming the mind and feels that depth and meaning in life's moments are infused and hidden in very simple acts - for her, encountering the sacred and the spiritual is about how you are seeing what is happening within you and around you.


Clients and students who have learned about Viniyoga from her have enjoyed the high-level of attention she gives to detail and nuance. Anyone who has a desire to breathe better, move better, and attend to the macrocosm around them and the microcosm within them better will find their time with Sandi to be fruitful and enriching.
