Sanieh embodies a very fluid yet strong, sensual and organic “full-bodied” yoga. Her personal practice is inspired by the healing water element which informs creative sequencing of yoga asana. With over 1,000 actual “Teacher Training” hours and over 4,500 actual teaching hours, yoga has taken Sanieh world-wide to teach, practice, and study. While the discovery and initiation into a regular yoga practice began when she lived on the Big Island of Hawaii, Sanieh currently resides in Austin, TX.
A Lululemon Athletica Ambassador, Sanieh has worked with ballet dancers, MMA fighters, fire fighters, Cross-Fitters, NFL players, and Olympic track runners. Her clients range from house wives to a number of celebrities and Academy Award winning actors, corporate businesses to children. Her “multi-disciplinary approach to life and fitness” as one student put it, includes being a CrossFitter, triathlete, longtime student of yoga asana & philosophy, a wife & most recently, a mother.
Creator of Yoga for the CrossFitter, a yoga based on her teaching expertise combined with an understanding of what a CrossFitter needs performance wise and with regard to injury prevention. A CrossFit Gymnastic certified CrossFitter herself, Sanieh's understanding and actualization cof ombining both yoga and CrossFit has led Sanieh to work with several of the local affiliates with documented success on both a group & individual/private lesson level.
Sanieh is a Vipassana meditator, musician and writer and was named one of “Austin’s Top 10 Fittest People” by Austin Fit Magazine representing full spectrum wellness and fitness in body, mind and spirit. She was quoted as saying,
“I view my body as the vehicle that challenges chaotic and irrational mind stuff. Through movement, hard work and sweat, I use my body to break through the barriers of my ‘thinker’; what I've told myself is or isn't possible. Repeatedly, I've learned that the body just follows the mind; the self-talk. Through a lot of discipline and ongoing practice, my self-talk has changed for the better and time and again, I've been brought into clarity as a result. My fitness is about dissolving the preconceived limitations of what I've told myself (or been told) I can do within my life. “
Sanieh leads retreats and workshops locally, nationally and internationally.
