Faculty

Sandra Vanatko, Lead Teacher Trainer

Welcome to Indra’s Grace, where my passion for Yoga and its profound impact on my life inspired me to create a place of learning and growth. In 2010, I established Indra’s Grace as a safe haven for Yoga enthusiasts, and after hearing the heartfelt requests of dedicated students, I introduced our comprehensive teacher training programs, which first launched in 2012.

 

My commitment to excellence drives me to continuously refine and update these programs to provide you with the highest-quality experience possible. It brings me immense joy to offer this transformative journey, as there is nothing more fulfilling than coming together with fellow Yoga enthusiasts to explore these ancient teachings. At Indra’s Grace, our teacher training program is the heart of what we do.

 

My mission is clear: to empower students like you with the tools of Yoga to help you live your most awakened and fulfilling life. I believe in equipping you with a diverse range of practices to support your well-being, enabling you to self-regulate and manage your mind and emotions, and ultimately awakening a new level of awareness that transcends suffering.

 

Having offered this program multiple times, I’ve found that the most effective way to learn is through complete immersion. During your training, expect to be fully immersed in all aspects of Yoga, supported by a welcoming sangha (community). My intention is to provide you with a safe and nurturing environment for self-exploration, self-inquiry, and profound learning.

 

As you embark on this teacher training journey, you will be equipped to serve as a guiding light for future students. Dedicated students often make the best Yoga teachers, and if you approach this program with an open heart and mind, you will emerge transformed, ready to share your personal experiences and insights with others.

 

There is a place for everyone in our training, and I extend a warm invitation to all seekers, movers, and shakers – anyone who aspires to be a beacon of light in the world and make a meaningful difference. My aim is to support your journey of expanding consciousness in a way that not only benefits you but also enriches the lives of those around you.

 

Throughout this training, you will acquire valuable tools for healthy living and develop into a more balanced individual. I hope you’ll choose to embark on this incredible journey of a lifetime with us, and together, we can illuminate the path to a brighter, more awakened future.

Jenny Reitz, Lead Teacher Trainer

I’m so honored and excited to be a part of the Indra’s Grace teacher training program again this year. I completed my 200-hour teacher training with Sandra at Indra’s Grace in 2013 and am so delighted to have been involved with the teacher trainings in some capacity since then. In 2014, I received my 500-hour teacher training certification from Sondra Loring and Raghunath Cappo at Sadhana Yoga in Hudson, New York.

 

My 200-hour training at Indra’s Grace was focused on the fundamentals of traditional, Hatha yoga including a rich and thorough coverage of Pranayama and the subtle and sometimes understated aspects of the yoga practice. My 500-hour training was focused on the Vinyasa style of yoga with a strong emphasis on philosophy, in the form of studying the ancient yoga texts; Bhakti, the yoga of devotion; and Naad yoga, the yoga of sound including chanting, mantra and harmonium. My teaching style is a light-hearted blend of all of these elements.

 

My goal is to effectively translate my experiences with teaching in different environments and studying a variety of styles of yoga into something useful and beneficial for students going through the teacher training program at Indra’s Grace.

Reviews

“I completed the 200-level yoga teacher training (YTT) in 2020 and the 300-level YTT in 2021. I completed both at Indra’s Grace (IG). This was a wonderful experience for me and I highly recommend these. In the 300 level YTT, I loved revisiting some of the required readings and newly recommended books built upon my existing knowledge. My ability to understand more information helped me peel back more layers and experience more of my true nature in the 300 YTT. This experience enabled me to learn more about myself and others. It helped me build better relationships and find more peace. I had no intention of teaching when I started this YTT journey. Now I want to spend time with people doing yoga. I have always loved attending classes and now I love leading them as well. I know a big part of this change in me is due to the inclusive and caring culture I experienced at IG. I plan on auditing the YTT at IG in the future because I am so grateful for what I have learned and know Sandra has so much more to share. -Dianna”

 

“The Indra’s Grace Advanced 300 YTT was life changing for me. I felt like I had a good foundational knowledge and skillset coming in with my 200hr certification, but IG’s 300hr training filled gaps that I didn’t even realize existed. The very first weekend it became clear to me that I was going to be learning many new things, but what I didn’t anticipate was the personal growth and discovery I would experience along the way. From the asana and pranayama to the principles & application of yoga on and off the mat- I couldn’t get enough. Sandra and Jenny not only teach these practices, they embody them. Their authenticity and pure light permeates every component of the training, which allowed me to feel safe to be my own vulnerable, authentic self too. After completing the Advanced YTT, I feel more prepared, knowledgeable, confident, and centered in my own being and purpose in yoga. I will always be grateful.”

 

“The 300 hour teacher training at Indra’s Grace helped me grow tremendously as a teacher. I loved the chance to experience the training again from a new perspective and found that I heard things the second time around that I missed the first time. I was able to ingest more of the material and incorporate it into my practice and my classes. The small group of 300 trainees got to meet regularly with Sandra outside of the training weekends, and those sessions were truly transformative. We taught each other, shared concerns and insights and connected on a profound level. I loved how carefully crafted the course was so that we started with smaller challenges and worked our way into the more intense ones. I hadn’t ever taught private sessions, and this experience was one of the most challenging and transformative. It gave me a new level of accountability, brought up fears and thought patterns for me to challenge and address, and, ultimately, it gave me an ease and confidence to co-create classes with others based on how they are showing up in their body that day. I highly recommend the 300 hour to anyone interested in spending more time in the practices in more intimate settings. It met and exceeded any expectations I had.”

 

“I am very grateful for all my experiences during my 300-hour training with Sandra Vanatko at Indra’s Grace.  I had the opportunity to work one on one with a student for ten months addressing her particular issues while Sandra and my fellow students offered suggestions, support, information and encouragement. This one aspect of the course was life changing for me. I recognized the teacher in myself and I hadn’t known she was there!  The structure of the course was unique and especially rewarding. Sandra and Jenny Reitz were available to the 300 hour students as our mentors. Our 300 hour group was available to the 200 hour students as mentors and in family groups. This situation gave us the opportunity to practice what we were being taught.  We spent a lot of time studying an amazing variety of coursework. And we had many opportunities to teach in our individual areas of interest.  And we had fun!  I highly recommend this course. I loved every minute and was really quite sad when it was over.”
