YOGA IS BEST PRACTICED OFF THE MAT. WRITING IS A FORM OF MEDITATION THAT HELPS YOU DO THAT.

Who are you? Who is the REAL YOU? The Real Youga with Sandria Washington combines the art of creative writing with the science of yoga to cut through the labels, expectations, old sob stories, doubt and confusion. When all the misinformation is stripped away, all that’s left is YOU. Just the real you, experiencing all the joy your life has to offer. Live life limitless instead of limited. From the page. To the mat. To real life. In that order!

  • Yoga is the perfect opportunity to be curious about who you are.
    Jason Crandell
  • I think writing really helps you heal yourself. I think if you write long enough, you will be a healthy person.
    Alice Walker
  • By learning to sit with myself, I’ve learned to stand in my own power.
