In this episode YIV's Holly Skodis interviews Sande Nosonowitz about how her yoga journey led her to becoming a vegan activist.
Sande is a master-certified vegan coach, writer and educator. For three years, she penned a column for Living & Being Magazine (part of the USA TODAY network) called ‘Living & Being Vegan,’ and has just published her new book, “OBLIVIOUS; A Vegan Memoir.” This comes after her first compilation book, “Living & Being Vegan; How Veganism Heals Your Body, Mind and Spirit.” Her multi-media presentation, “How Veganism Heals,” has been enjoyed by groups at venues such as The Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital, Dutchess Community College, The Omega Institute Staff Program, The DrawDown National Environmental Program, The Fountains at Millbrook Community Education Series, and coming this fall, The Vassar College Lifelong Learning Institute.
She’s a proud co-founder of the Hudson Valley Vegfest held annually in New York State. Sande is also a certified yoga & meditation instructor who designs a line of yoga & vegan-inspired jewelry that she lovingly calls, “Hip & Holy Bling.”
Sande teaches a full transition to veganism, including online modules, cooking classes, field trips to the grocery store and trips to the animal sanctuaries. An activist, teacher, student and animal lover, Sande lives in upstate New York with her vegan husband and plant-based yellow lab, Henry.
OBLIVIOUS; A Vegan Memoir is available on Amazon, and you can learn more about all of Sande’s offerings on her website; www.sundaravegan.com
