Sondra Loring, Sadhana Founder & Director, fell in love with yoga while dancing professionally in New York City. She traveled to India several times to study yoga, and has studied with many that have since fallen from grace. After moving to the Hudson Valley, Sondra opened Sadhana Center for Yoga & Meditation in Hudson in 2003, and Satya Yoga Center in Rhinebeck in 2005.
Sondra is an interdisciplinary queer witch, bringing somatic practices, yoga, meditation, science, poetry and mantra into her teaching. Her classes are loved for their graceful flow of movement, a strong sense of play, and a nurturing of community. She lives on Feathertail Farm, now a small community garden, with her son Mateo and their rascally elderly dog Pequena, and squirrelly young pup Bebé.
