Public Speaker and Founder of SoulFitness
Sandra Wigren is a professional clown and fire performer who used to work as a TV presenter. Then a huge nature catastrophe came and swept everything away. Sandra did not only survive the Tsunami in Khao Lak Thailand 2004, the Tsunami that hit her life right after is her true survival.
From a successful TV career, she was suddenly caught in a devastating and fast downward spiral that erased everything in her life. Within a year, she lost her job, her home and had huge debts. Then a new kind of survival started: with everything from long hospital stays, wrong diagnostics, post traumatic stress and alcohol, to drugs, prostitution and attempted suicides.
After five years of struggle and emigration from Sweden, and the pain of leaving her 5 year old son behind, Sandra finally returned and slowly started to build herself up again. That was when her company Soul Fitness was born.
Falling through a roof and climbing to the top of a palm tree to save her life during the Tsunami, gave birth to a huge respect for the physical capacity. Sandra decided to study to become an international personal trainer, with the concept of ”fit from within”. Today her company, SoulFitness, is well established, and her public speaking tour- From Pain to Power is worldwide.
As a public speaker, Sandra is a totally fearless person who dares to be completely open with her story. With much humour, joy and energy, she communicates her insights about life.
“Sandra leaves no one untouched, through the ability to show others joy in life, transparency and daring to be vulnerable. She is able to see their qualities and challenges them to live more, to get more out of everyday life and see life in a broader perspective”.

Today Sandra has worked as a professional clown and fire performer for 25 years and she loves to integrate with people’s inner child. She also works a lot with children and with suicidal teenagers, helping them to find their way back to life again and to build a strong future.

Be a leader in life
Encourage the disheartened
Motivate the repressed
Help the hurt
Strengthen the weak
Inspire the depressed
Empower the discouraged
TURN YOUR PAIN INTO YOUR POWER
