Sapna is a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance. She holds numerous yoga and fitness certifications, along with hours of additional training. She is the owner of Strength & Soul Yoga LLC, a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School, and has been leading yoga teacher trainings since 2014. Sapna began her yoga journey as a young child. Informally, she first learned the basics of asana, pranayama and yoga philosophy from her grandparents, and uncles, who are still avid yogis. Spending summers in India, she was exposed to the gifts of this beautiful science first-hand, gaining a deep appreciation for its roots in her native culture.
As a childhood athlete, her formal yoga practice began as a means to find balance for her body. In 2010, she dove into following her family lineage to become a yoga instructor, completing her 200-hour yoga teacher training on the beaches of Goa, India.
She continued on to receive a 300-hour certification in Integrative Yoga Therapy, under Joseph and Lilian LePage, in 2012. Sapna completed her second 300-hour teacher training under the tutelage of Kristin Olson and Jen Ryan of Home Yoga in 2020.
Sapna truly believes in teaching people the power of their breath and "helps" people breathe, working as as a full-time Registered Respiratory Therapist, with a focus on adult critical care.
