SANDI CRANE

Hometown: The little town of Bethlehem, Connecticut.

Favorite music artist or band: It’s season, weather and mood dependent. Summer 2017 has been full of Chance the Rapper, Kendrick Lamar and SZA.  Listening to Alt-J, Alabama Shakes or Sublime brings me home.

Dream vacation? My fiancé and I are renting a jungle beach house in Costa Rica for our Honeymoon this fall. Equipped with pool, hot tub and treehouse. Oh, I’ve been dreaming about it…

Favorite post yoga snack? Just a snack? Well, I suppose a Mint Chocolate RXBAR and some fresh fruit.

A quote you love? “You create the space, and the universe fills it.” Leslie Kaminoff & Amy Matthews on breathing in Yoga Anatomy.

Personal mantra? Be Real, Be Kind, Be Curious.

How did you get into yoga?, I practiced sporadically for over a decade, but nothing captivated me like the Y7 experience - the candlelight, the warmth, the music. The deep, yet accessible spirituality. I found my tribe.

Favorite time of day to get your practice in? I love a sweet and sweaty morning practice, but I’m usually more crepuscular. 

What's your favorite part of Y7? The darkness; the candlelight. I’ve always enjoyed pushing myself in practice, but would hold back in the past to avoid looking like a hardo. In the cover of darkness, I can find my limits without rein. I vibe off the movement around me, but a Y7 class is truly an introspective experience for me.
