Sandra D. Bianco is a dedicated yoga practitioner who has been studying and practicing yoga for more than 20 years, and teaching it since 2005. She started her spiritual research at a young age of 15, first through books, then by meeting yoga, buddhist meditation and shamanism, until she met her spiritual Teacher in 1995. That encounter changed her perception of Life and of her Purpose, and became the foundation of her way of living and of her teachings today.
In 2005 she got the blessing to teach yoga from her first Ashtanga & Vinyasa teacher Sonja Rzepski, becoming one of the pioneers of dynamic yoga in Croatia. Her thirst for knowledge made her travel around the world, where she studied with a great number of prominent teachers and masters. One of the most precious encounters was with Tiwariji from Kaivalyadham Institute (India), who initiated her in the practices and teaching of Pranayama.
Sandra is is the founder of GaiaYoga school established in 2006 as the first Croatian Yoga Teacher Training program, and of GaiaYoga Prenatal TTC.
