“Yesterday I obeyed kings and bent my neck before emperors. But today I kneel only to truth, follow only beauty, and obey only love.” – Khalil Gibran
After decades of seeking, self-inquiry and practicing yoga & meditation, Sande found the true meaning of Ahimsa (Sanskrit for non-harming) in her vegan activism. She is an MSVA-Certified Vegan Lifestyle Coach & Educator.
Sande is also the founder of Sundara Yoga and the owner/designer of Sundara Yoga-Inspired Jewelry. The word Sundara is drawn from the Sanskrit word meaning “beautiful,” interpreted as inner beauty flowing from grace & wisdom.
Sande completed her Yoga Teacher Training at Satya Yoga Center in Rhinebeck, NY and her Corporate Yoga Teacher Training at the Omega Institute of Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, NY. In college, she studied Psychology & Education at Boston University and holds a B.A. in Education from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
Sande began to express her love of yoga through jewelry designs in 2010. That is when Sundara Yoga Inspired Jewelry was born. Sitting down in her jewelry studio to create a new piece became a form of meditation. Fully focused, creativity flows through her into each and every piece. An injury in 2011 left her unable to teach, and jewelry design became one of her full time meditation and creative practices.
She studied jewelry design as well as the healing properties of gemstones, and began to delve into this artistic medium as a way to stay connected to the yoga community and to her practice. As her injuries healed, she discovered a deep love of creating what she calls “Hip & Holy Bling.”
Each piece of Sande’s jewelry is one of a kind…just like you. So take a deep breath….& enjoy shopping Sundara Jewelry.
