Sandra was introduced to the Callanetics Program after the birth of her second son in 1987. Callan Pinckney’s first book, 10 Years Younger in 10 Hours was life changing and she knew instinctively that she had found the exercise program that would restore her body to its youthful shape. Sandra studied each exercise in the book to master the tiny movements and to her delight she found that her body responded to the exercises beautifully and extremely quickly. She watched with pure amazement as her body became leaner, stronger, sculpted and with increased muscle tone. In 2001 Sandra flew to Chicago to certify as a Callanetics® Trainer. Over the following few months she made several trips to attend trainings and work alongside some of Callan’s most respected Instructors. She opened her Gold Coast Callanetics Studio in June 2001.
