Sasha has been practicing yoga for 23 years and teaching it for 13 years. She has been a member of the Yoga Alliance since 2003 and the Register of Exercise Professionals since 2004. She has a vibrant energy and a passion for sharing her experience and knowledge with others. She currently teaches at a variety of yoga schools in Oxford, as well as at yoga retreats overseas.
Her preference is for a dynamic, physically challenging style of asana practice leading to a deeper state of relaxation and preparation for meditation. However, this is carefully balanced with the students' own needs and abilities, and classes are constructed in an organic way to meet these needs. Where possible, the following elements are covered in each session: sun salutations, (flowing) standing postures, balances, core stability, backbends, twists, inversions, forward bends, savasana (relaxation) and pranayama (breath work). A variety of postures and techniques are used as appropriate, with modifications as necessary to suit individuals.
