Sandra Lassiter, RYT® 500, is the Owner and Director of Hot Yoga Ahwatukee. Sandra sought out yoga in 1995 as a method for managing stress. She began her yoga journey with the Iyengar method and evolved her practice by experiencing many different styles of yoga until she was introduced to Bikram’s Hot Yoga in 2001. Though she practiced different styles of yoga and various forms of healing arts, it was hot yoga that offered her the greatest opportunity for transformation both physically and mentally. Sandra was inspired to share this platform for physical, mental and spiritual transformation with others and decided to leave the corporate world and pursue her passion for yoga. She was certified to teach Bikram Yoga in 2008 and went on to study with Jimmy Barkan receiving her Hot Vinyasa Flow teaching certification in 2009 and in 2011.
