Born in Hong Kong but raised in Toronto, Sandy spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in books. She attended the University of Toronto and gained a degree in Biology and English. After graduating, she followed her dreams of being a writer to her ancestral home of Taiwan where she lived for nearly 3 years. After several years of writing, she grew dissatisfied with the industry and took up surfing to de-stress and unwind from her long monotonous days. After a minor a surfing injury, Sandy was advised to take up yoga and instantly fell in love. She found that yoga provided a method of connecting to our world that was kind, genuine and loving. She has been living, breathing, moving and healing with yoga each day since. In 2011, she officially gained her yoga teaching certification and began to share her journey in Toronto and abroad. You can catch her live classes at Yoga Tree Studios or Chi Junky. Online classes and podcast episodes are available at sandyhuenyoga.com
