Studying under Sandy Raper completely changed the trajectory of my path as a yoga teacher. The funny thing is, for someone to have such a huge impact on my life, it’s hard to believe I went into my 300-hour teacher training blindly, without ever meeting Sandy, but I valued all the high recommendations she’d been given by teachers I trusted. Sandy’s depth of knowledge from her years in a studio setting, working 1:1 with clients, and studying under Rolf Gates and Tiffany Cruikshank with Yoga Medicine, all merge into a powerful training experience. Her delivery is crisp and well-organized, leaving you full after each session, yet wanting more!


I still hear her in my teachings (in every class!), and what I value most is her emphasis on stability. Not only did this change the way I taught, it changed the way I practiced. That changed my life, and I feel it has greatly impacted my students. I can’t recommend Sandy enough to anyone looking to advance their yoga training. She is brilliant!

One of my first encounters with yoga was with Sandy. I love her teaching style, character, and how she connects with her students. Sandy has been a mentor of mine for a long time and has become a good friend. Having already completed my RYT-200 certification, it made sense to train with her for my 300-hour teacher certification. I found her 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training course to be invaluable. Each class was conducted in a private, professional space conducive to learning. Printed materials, along with instructor-led practice, lectures, and small group sessions, provided a well-rounded education. After completing Sandy's 300-hour training, I was qualified to obtain my RYT-500 certification through Yoga Alliance. I highly recommend Sandy's 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training.

- Andrea Deese, E-RYT 200, RYT 500

Sandy’s 300-YTT was amazing! I loved the way each module was done throughout a long weekend. That format allowed me to dive deep into each learning module, being fully immersed in both its philosophy and practical application. Sandy has an amazing way of presenting topics to make each fun and easy to grasp and also invites conversation and differing opinions. I completed each weekend with so much to offer my students! The entire experience was amazing and I look forward to continuing my yoga training with Sandy, hopefully through CE in the future!

- Alia King, 200 & 300-hour YTT graduate

I enrolled in the 300 hr. YTT to further my teaching skills and build on the foundation from my 200 hr. YTT. Sandy’s YTT trainings have a thoroughly planned curriculum, and the delivery of the lectures, and our manuals with attention to detail. Her training provided me with the skills and knowledge I needed to teach with confidence and professionally.
