Sasha has explored a creative path in life through the expressions of dance, theatre and visual arts, the practice of yoga is a natural continuation of this exploration.
Sasha was on a Fine Art degree in the late 1990’s, when she first started going to classes; sometime later yoga became a more in-depth practice and Sasha has been teaching yoga since 2012.
Her personal journey into teaching yoga came through a transitional time in her own life. Sasha has completed two 200- hour teacher trainings in Hatha yoga with Bharath Shetty, an Indian teacher in Mysore. This was followed closely by a second 200-hour teacher training in Hatha & Ashtanga with respected UK teachers Melanie Cooper & Laura Gilmore; which gave Sasha more practical teaching tools. Since then Sasha has developed an interest in Yin yoga studying 80+ hours with Norman Blair who she regularly assists on teacher trainings and workshops. Sasha has also studied Restorative yoga with Judith Hanson Lassater.
Sasha has completed 500+ hours of training with Yoga Alliance.
Her own practice includes Ashtanga, Yin and Restorative yoga; to create balance, which is needed for a life lived in London.
Sasha is drawn to teaching Yin & Restorative yoga, as it allows time to cultivate spaciousness in the body & mind.
Yin yoga is an opportunity to slow down, soften and release.
Sasha teaches Yin in a supportive way, with the use of props and encourages a non-striving approach with immersion into feelings and sensations; cultivating a meditative quality to the practice.
