Sandy Blaine grew up in Berkeley, California, where she took her first yoga class in 1987 and immediately fell in love with its beauty and mystery. She has a joyous devotion to her own daily yoga practice, which she strives to share with her students through her teaching and writing.

Sandy got her start teaching yoga at the University of California, Berkeley in 1993 and has been teaching full time in the San Fransisco Bay Area ever since. In 1995, she graduated from the Advanced Studies Program at Berkeley's Yoga Room; she joined their faculty in 2000. She is one of the founders and codirectors of the Alameda Yoga Station, which opened in 1995. In addition to teaching her weekly classes in Berkeley and Alameda, she has been the in-house yoga teacher at Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville, California since 1994.

Sandy's writing has appeared in Ascent, Yoga International, and Yoga Journal. In 2004 she wrote a series on home practice, "Asana at Home," for Yoga International's "Asana" column.

Sandy resides in Oakland, California where, when not teaching, practicing, or writing about yoga, she enjoys reading, cooking, and hiking in the Oakland hills.

Yoga for Healthy Knees: What You Need to Know for Pain Prevention and Rehabilitation (Rodmell Press Yoga Shorts Series) 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Written by a yoga teacher who fixed her own knee pain with the help of yoga, I found this book very easy to use. Here's a few reasons why I liked it:

-it's not too long (its smaller than I pictured, 95 pages, but that was fine with me
-the idea here is to help your knees out by strengthening what's weak and loosening what's tight
-this is accomplished through yoga poses which you hold for a minute or so
-there are 3 different sequences of poses depending on your needs (nice)
-there's even a short routine for those busy days we all have

Finding a yoga teacher is suggested, but with all the pictures, descriptions, and sheer straightforwardness of the poses, I don't feel like it's a must. In short, this is a good, safe place to start if you have a general knee problem. Also recommend The 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution for those who suffer from plantar fasciitis.
