Meet Sasha

My love for yoga first started as a teenager but it wasn’t until I was a drama student that I started to practise regularly.  At drama school my movement teacher, Aidan Treays, recommended Simon Low’s Ying and Yang DVD and yoga helped me feel calmer and more connected to my body throughout my intensive actor training. Since then I have studied many different styles of yoga across the world, including Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, Spain and the UK.

In 2013, whilst recovering from a second foot operation, the wonderful Gemma Evans designed a special yoga sequence for me that I was able to follow even on crutches. Yoga kept me positive and it felt amazing that I was able to keep my mind and body energised throughout my recovery, which hadn’t been the case after my first operation. Before that time I knew that I wanted to go deeper with my practice but it was only then that I became certain that yoga teaching was the right path for me, once I was back on my feet again.

I really believe that yoga is a very powerful discipline and more importantly it can change your life. The uniting of my breath with the physical practice makes me feel more inspired, motivated and alive. Yoga connects me to a stronger, healthier body and keeps my mind a little more focused in this non-stop world we live in. I feel very grateful that I have found my calling and I want to share the gift of yoga with all those who are ready to experience its benefits. I give thanks to all of my teachers so far, especially to the inspirational Jane Kersel and Naz Khakoo.

Yoga is not about touching your toes.  It’s about unlocking your ideas and what you want, where you think you will go, and how you will achieve when you go there.

Beginners Yoga

The thought of trying yoga can be quite daunting. Like with anything new it takes time to get used to a new language, way of moving our body or using our breath. Breathing is something we have been doing all our lives but we don’t often pay much attention to it. Once we become aware of it then magical things can start happening. When it comes to yoga I recommend learning the basics first; where you can build up your confidence in a small group and go at a pace that you are comfortable with.

Hatha Flow Yoga

My training was in Vinyasa and Hatha and I like to teach a fusion of the two styles. Hatha Flow is a dynamic form of Hatha which synchronises movement and breath to provide a flow of postures that lead naturally from one to the other.  My classes explore variations of sun salutations along with standing and seated poses. The practice provides a strong physical discipline and the calming effects of a moving meditation.

Restorative Yoga

I absolutely love Restorative yoga. It is so worthwhile trying a softer and more supportive class that will balance out your nervous system. The practice involves the use of props to allow the body to release and relax. Poses are generally held for 3-5 minutes and the sequences promote body awareness and a sense of mental stillness. Pure bliss.

Add a moment of calm to your workplace….

Did you know that by offering your employees a regular yoga class you could increase their productivity and positivity at work?  Enabling your staff to step away from the stress of the office for a 45 minute or hour long yoga session will ensure they return to the task in hand with renewed energy and motivation.

If you have the available space I can come and teach at your workplace at a time that suits your team. Get in touch today to discuss how we can work together.

Making contact is the first step to a healthier & happier you!

If you’d like to book a private lesson or discuss how I can bring a moment of calm to your busy workplace please get in touch Sasha@MariposeYoga.com

Thank you to all the women that came to express themselves freely through movement yesterday under the full moon. The space we created together allowed a wonderful opportunity to let out our roars & to fully shine our light. Native American tribes named the February Full Moon the Snow Moon because usually the heaviest snows fall around this month & it did indeed live up to it's name yesterday. However the moon had a fiery energy about her being in the sign of Leo & I wasn't alone feeling my internal flames blazing away as we danced under her glow. So grateful for my last chance to hold space under a full moon with sisters in London. ... See MoreSee Less

Full Moon Blessings! It's a chilly day in London so come & warm yourself up with some moving & shaking & celebrate the full moon as you do so. Lunar eclipses are rare so take the chance to bathe in her light & to see what areas she illuminates in your life. More than anything this day is about you feeling confident to shine your light & enjoy it.
'This Leo moon helps us to come out of the shadows, by helping us feel more brave and daring. With the fiery lion energy urging us on to expand our horizons, this is the moon to step out of your comfort zone and do something bold and fearless.'
See you on the dance floor!

The Leo moon enhances & encourages our creative juices to flow. Tune into your creative powers through moving your body in a free way with yoga & dance under the full moon this Saturday.

'Creativity is the pure expression of our personality and the unique blueprint of who we are. When we are in our creativity, we are at our most connected, because we are participating in life, in creation itself. We have purpose and meaning, and most importantly we are in harmony and flow with our unique self."

"In the same way as the phases of the moon above exert gravitational forces strong enough to create tides in the great oceans, so do the tides & flows of the body respond to the rhythms."
