Sandra is an artist, yogini, and an equus coach. She started exploring yoga in 2001 in Amsterdam. In 2009, following her inner wish of living her passions, she packed her brushes and her yoga mat and put on her horse boots to go for a sabbatical to Petra, Jordan. It was the beginning of her adventure of discovering and expressing herself in the most authentic way. Now you can find Sandra as your certified yoga teacher during this special horse coaching & yoga retreat in the South of Jordan.
