“I have served NYC Parks for nearly eight years and in this role I have recruited and placed hundreds of people in various positions throughout the Agency and City. I would count Ms. Higgins as one of the strongest and most grounded employees I have worked with during this time.”

“Sandi’s classes are authentic, precise, and thoughtful.”

– Lexi, Regional Fitness Manager, Colorado Athletic Club, Boulder, CO 2019

“In California I became a yoga addict (Ashtanga) at first class and practiced religiously for two years. Upon moving to Colorado, I never found a teacher that really clicked, and yoga was booming so I had many styles to choose from.  So while I went through the motions my practice suffered. Span 13 years into the future and I walk into the breath of fresh air that is Sandi Higgins. I realized what I had been missing. Many can walk you through poses, but Sandi’s in-depth knowledge of body and specific verbal cues helped me achieve nuances during my practice that had been missing, and the time would fly by. And if you’re the type of person that likes adjustments and assisted depth in a pose she has the expertise and compassion to guide with comfort. She’s also knowledgeable about the extensive spiritual side of yoga and a calm, encouraging presence for the meditative aspects.”

– Cher, Ashtanga Yoga, Colorado Athletic Club, Boulder, CO 2019

We hope to have her back in the near future.”

“I really appreciate the mindfulness and attention to details that Sandi brings to her classes.”

– John, Restorative Yoga, Dept. of Parks & Recreation, Boulder, CO 2021

“Sandi has visited India a couple of times and is fully familiar with the Indian culture. This shows that she did not visit India just as a camera-clicking tourist but she has lived the Indian Arts and Music and felt it from within. Sandi’s dynamic choreography and workouts based upon Hindi, Punjabi, and Spanish music is very inspirational and scintillating. Sandi’s instructional style is highly interactive, which reflects her dancing skills. Her steps, gestures, and expressions, that are important components of Indian dance style, are very authentic and genuine.”

– Sharad, Dancer, Boulder Parks & Recreation, Boulder, CO 2021

Having taught and performed North Indian classical and folk dance forms and having studied yoga for 5 decades myself, I feel confident in attesting Sandi’s knowledge and respect for these practices. I truly appreciate the wonderful energy and expertise that Sandi brings to her classes. Her enthusiasm is unmatched and contagious! Great exercise while having the best time ever—don’t miss it!

– Mekhala, Indian Classical Dancer, Dept. of Parks & Recreation, Boulder, CO 2021
