Our Story

Indra’s Grace opened its doors in early January 2010.  Sandra Vanatko, owner and visionary had an inspiration to create a safe and inviting space where everyone would feel welcome to practice Yoga regardless of age or level.  Her dream was to open a center that was truly for everyBODY.  She was moved to create a space where she could share everything she had learned in her own healing journey towards physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

About Us

Indra’s Grace is named after Sandra’s mother Jindra, who lost her three year battle to breast cancer in 1999.  Sandra dropped the J which left Indra.  Indra is a Sanskrit name for God.  The one word everyone always used to describe Jindra was “graceful.”  Sandra decided to name the studio in her mothers honor.  Indra’s Grace means God’s Grace, God’s Blessing, Mothers Blessing, or Mothers Grace.  Inspired and motivated by her mother and in search for answers on how to stay healthy Sandra researched movement therapies, nutrition, mindfulness, spiritual practice, and the importance of “satsang” community.  Indra’s Grace is this offering.

Indra’s Grace celebrated it’s seventh anniversary this past January.  We are 7.5 years old, located one block off the southwest corner of the Weatherford Square.  We have over 200 students that join us weekly for classes.  We now offer both group and private Yoga classes, holistic nutrition with Dana Farrell,  massage therapy with Stephanie Hinkel, John Of God crystal bed healing sessions, and personal healing sessions with John Stockberger and Sandra Vanatko. We hope you will come join us and find what you need to support your healing journey.

Sandra thanks all that have been instrumental in the opening and growth of the studio.  First and foremost she thanks her creator God. Second, her mother for her inspiration, third her teacher Shashi Pottathil for helping awaken her spiritual nature and her path, fourth her father for giving her the courage to open Indra’s Grace, and fifth all the students and community of Indra’s Grace. Without them there would be no Indra’s Grace.  It is an honor and a blessing to serve the Weatherford community.
