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.

Sandra welcomes and looks forward to serving all of you, in-person and online.

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. 


UNION/YOGA offerings by Sandra Carden, ERYT 500


UNION/YOGA classes are enhancement toward the true experience of yoga. Yoga is finding enlightenment through knowing your Self. You are a process, and so is yoga. Yoga is the process of enstacy: ecstacy that comes from within.

Classes are currently offered online. Text or call me for the Zoom link at sandra@unionyoga.com or 231-883-8095. come and go as you please by accessing my video library: 


In-person classes will return to "the Leelanau,"

May, 2022.

Teacher Training


Teacher Training is not merely asana, or even pranayama. UYTT encompasses the full spectrum of what yoga has to offer: UNITY and COMMUNION with oneself and all of what is. 

UYTT 200 in two 2-week sessions:

May 8-21, 2022

September 25-October 8, 2022

Do this not only to teach. This is for you. Do this for yourSelf.


UNION/YOGA workshops take you deeper into a specific  aspect of yoga than can be covered in a class setting. It is an inquiry, and an unpacking. It is a microscopic analysis of what lies within. For example:


Female Pelvic Floor Health
Leland, MI

November 12 & 19 2021


Watch here for the dates of 6 new UNION/YOGA Workshops in the spring and summer of 2022.

Inner Inquiry


Inner Inquiry is modeled on Jungian Psychology and the Phoenix Rising method.

You are the guide, as well as the receiver of deeply known wisdom about your self in all your realms. UNION/YOGA Inner Inquiry acknowledges that you are always complete and free. You just have to uncover what is in the way. 

By appointment and in person only. sandra@unionyoga.com

Private and Semi- Private Instruction

Sandra Carden's UNION/YOGA may be best for you in a one-on-one, or in a

semi-private setting. 

If a "pod" appeals to you and your close cohorts, you may book a class for any special occasion, or an ongoing series as a  small, supportive group.

By appointment only, in person or by Zoom. Contact me at
