Tony Sanchez

My name is Tony Sanchez, and I have dedicated my life to the practice and teaching of yoga. With over four decades of experience in the field, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to my students.

My journey began in the late 1970s when I immersed myself in the discipline of postural yoga under the guidance of Bikram Choudhury at the Yoga College of India. This foundational training laid the groundwork for my lifelong commitment to yoga practice and teaching.

Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of holding various leadership roles in esteemed institutions within the yoga community. From serving as the Principal Instructor and Director at Bikram’s Yoga College of India in San Francisco to founding and directing the United States Yoga Association, a non-profit educational foundation, I have been deeply involved in advancing the practice of yoga both locally and globally.

In addition to my work in yoga instruction, I have also pursued training in Buddhist & Martial Qi Gong under Master Moon and Taoist Qi Gong under Master K.C. Mao, further enriching my understanding of mind-body disciplines.

My professional journey has taken me across diverse settings, from leading yoga programs at prestigious spas like One&Only Palmilla and Esperanza in Mexico to instructing at corporate headquarters such as in San Francisco. My experience encompasses a wide range of teaching environments, from intimate studio settings to large-scale educational initiatives in public schools.

In 2011, I founded the Yogic Physical Culture Academy, where I have focused on instructor training, advanced training, and developing online and on-location yoga programs rooted in the Ghosh lineage of postural yoga. 

Building upon this foundation, I launched Tony Sanchez Yoga in 2020, where I continue to share my passion for yoga through innovative teaching methods and accessible programming.

My commitment to yoga extends beyond the physical practice; it is a holistic lifestyle that encompasses mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Through my teachings, I aim to empower individuals to cultivate balance, strength, and resilience both on and off the mat.

As a yoga instructor, my mission is to inspire and guide others on their journey toward self-discovery and transformation. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to share the profound benefits of yoga with my students and communities around the world.
