Denise Costello, Holistic Nurse
Sandra has a calming, confident disposition; what you want in an AH® Practitioner. She held my gaze and gently guided me through a breathing and expressive verbal process while keeping me feeling safe - I would highly recommend her especially to beginners who may be nervous or unsure. She will definitely put them at ease. The comfort I felt enabled me to open to receive and release blocks within my body and voice. It was an impactful experience - one that I will never forget.

WELCOMES ALL OF YOU
If the body has not had the opportunity to fully process misaligned experiences, emotions and energy may become lodged within the body's memory leading to physical ailments and emotional manifestations. Give your body the chance to heal from within.
Numbness, agony, apathy, sorrow, grief, rage, pain, guilt, shame, hate, love, ecstacy, joy, celebration... all of what is alive within the depths of your body is invited to bubble up in this container to be safely expressed as you embark on this journey of returning to Self.
BEING WITH WHAT IS
Lean into allowing
Learning to trust myself to FEEL while not dissolving into an endless abyss of suffering has been my personal quest on the path of emotional awareness, expression, and healing. Now I wish to share with others the tools I've learned along the journey.
You are held.
Opening to integrating one's worthiness to receive creates the space for connection and abundance in all forms to flow in.
HONORING OURSELVES & OUR ANCESTORS
Healing the past, present, and future with dignity.
Our bodies carry muscle memory wounding from lived experiences as well as systems of oppression and exploitation we and our ancestors have suffered and inflicted upon others.
This work has the potential to create space for the unspoken words, unexpressed emotions, and unfelt sensations of our ancestors to arise. These may be stored in our own bodies ready to be accessed and liberated without the need to re-live traumatic memories.
Reconnecting the severed relationship to, acceptance of, and love for our own (wild) body.
Learning to embrace our wild bits and understand that no part of us is "bad." Stretching into reconciliation with our nature-made bodies helps heal the trauma and separation caused by oppressive societal conditioning.
The AH Practice® gave me access to my voice, and ultimately my inner strength. I learned to identify and claim my Nos and my Yeses.
Through receiving multiple sessions I liberated my personal power from the inside out. I learned my capacity to define and hold boundaries.
I understand on a visceral level my worthiness to receive presence. I learned of the abundance and connection always at my fingertips.
It brings me great joy to offer such an empowering tool to others, and enable them to let go of the body’s stored emotional traumas that have been holding them back from living their fullest lives. It is sacred work and a great responsibility.
I continue loosening the grips of shame & fear passed down through the generations around sexuality, worthiness, taking up space, having a female body, and being seen and heard. My experience in this lifetime matters. And so does yours.
I studied with Amrita Grace at the Sacred Feminine Mystery School® from July 2019 onward and have met the rigorous requirements for certification for working one-on-one with people in the fully-clothed work.
In 2017 I began training at Kripalu with Toni Bergins, and am now a fully-certified JourneyDance™ Facilitator, offering workshops in embodied transformation movement.
October 2023 I took the Birth Doula course with Birthing Gently and DONA certification is in progress.
Prior to aligning my soul with my profession, I used to work in a Big 4 Accounting Firm and had obtained an MBA/MSA after an undergraduate degree in Political Science, Spanish, International Comparative Politics including studies in Mexico and Costa Rica.
My passion is working with women to navigate the emotional and energetic imprints of the prenatal, child-birth, and perinatal period, as well as womb, vaginal, and pelvic related experiences that cause energetic blockages. Any experience of violation (misaligned with our higher knowing) that hasn't yet been fully processed may benefit from a session. Its really about honoring the wisdom of the body, and deeply tuning into what the body, mind, and spirit desires to heal. I bring gentleness, openness, and radical acceptance. The AH modality is most transformational when we approach it with no expectation of "results" and instead welcome the journey.
I’m a mother of 4, diagnosed with vulvodynia (chronic nerve pain) in my late teens, and am no stranger to pain. Yet, thanks to the path of inner work, therapy, my Buddhist practice, Parenting for Wholeness, JourneyDance™, and the AH Practice®, I get to declare that I am also no stranger to pleasure & bliss!
I’m excited to share the possibility of greater aliveness, freedom, joy and abundance with all who feel called to explore working with me.
