Sasha Yoga and Wellness

11 Episodes

Growing up, I tried a variety of sports and had aspirations to be everything I learned about in school when I grew up: archaeologist [let’s be honest, I wanted to be a dinosaur], artist, singer, actor, writer, fashion designer. The one constant in my life was always dance.

Not surprisingly, dance is what ultimately brought me to yoga. For over 20 years I have been performing tap, contemporary, jazz, and hip-hop. I have assisted, choreographed, and taught classes in various styles for students of all ages.

At the University of California, Santa Barbara I studied dance, French, and graduated with a BA in theater design. I went on to receive an MFA in fashion merchandising from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, but my heart was still set on helping others. Somewhere along the way to finishing my thesis on sustainable fashion, I discovered I was able to do this through yoga and nutrition.

After moving to New York in 2010 I dedicated myself to deepening my yoga practice and studying nutrition. I gratefully fell into Anya Porter’s Breakti® movement, which further inspired me to teach yoga myself. I found a certification program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, which encouraged me to pursue wellness consulting. I noticed that yoga and nutrition went hand in hand, and they both turned my world right-side up.

In February 2019 I relocated to Paris in continual pursuit of both learning and sharing my studies and experiences with yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, nutrition, sustainability, and global interconnectedness.
