Seeking a path that would help to balance the intense impact of her martial arts practice, Santi discovered the healing benefits of yoga 13 years ago. Her devotion to yoga evolved through different forms such as Hatha, Iyengar, Kundalini, and Ashtanga. Through this journey, she found that consistent practice not only prevented injuries, but also cultivated lasting beneficial changes in her posture, and overall physical and mental well-being. The ability to face challenges with this energy and clarity of mind has not only been life-transforming, but has motivated her to share this knowledge with others. She completed her Ashtanga teacher training with Laura Camp at Flying Yoga, and went on to receive her Kundalini certification with Dr. Hari Simran Singh Khalsa and Sat Rattan Kaur at their ashram in San Lorenzo.
Santi has a black belt in Aikido and Jujitsu, and is a certified personal trainer with NASM. She is also a certified massage Tterapist specializing in chronic and acute pain management. Santi believes that as we move forward on a path that brings us into deeper awareness of our bodies, we inevitably come into deeper awareness of our selves.
