About Us


Sandra Carden, ERYT-500 founded UNION/YOGA LLC in 1989 when she opened the doors to the first dedicated Yoga studio in Michigan. She has studied and taught yoga classes since the early 1970s. Sandra adheres to the true power and spirit of yoga- it s a practice, not a performance. She brings a depth of experience, precision, compassion, wisdom, respect, and love to her students.

Since having a stroke and emergency neural surgery in November 2022, Sandra looks forward to personal changes, including returning to her personal practice. Recovery is expected to be complete, thanks to swift action by her dear husband Field, the Suttons Bay/Bingham EMTs, Munson Hospital ER and ICU staff and and Dr. Gary Rajah, who performed the thrombectomy surgery for removal of a clot in the right brain. Praise Be.

This site will continue to offer Sandra's occasional Musings and art.

We all have a story to share.
My yoga story began
before I knew the word "yoga." 
Yoga means to yoke or to bind. It is UNION.
But, the mystery is that yoga serves to yoke what was never separated at all.
Yoga just wakes you up and makes you re-member yourSelf, whole and alive, perfect, strong, and ever-changeable.
Yoga is Union.
That's why I founded UNION/YOGA. 

Sandra Carden
