After practicing intermittently for years, Sashi’s practice truly deepened and transformed once she started meditating. She found that by tuning in to the microcosm of her own internal world, she began to understand the external world around her with greater clarity, patience, ease, and joy. No longer was Yoga simply an alternative means to athleticism, or even some good deep stretching; it became a dance between the physical and the energetic… a moving meditation, that could be applied to every moment of the day. With intelligent and creative sequences that open the body, Sashi teaches a class that evolves through heat-building asana, into a more cooling, introspective end, so that ultimately, practitioners can sit in stillness. Sashi received all 500 hours of her teaching certification from Yogiraj Alan Finger at ISHTA Yoga in New York City, where she taught until her recent move to Boulder. Before she found yoga, she received her B.F.A from New York University in Theatre with a strong focus in poetry, and continues to draw upon her background in the arts as well as her passion for Tantric philosophy to infuse her classes with a mix of wisdom, inspiration, and joy from both the Western as well as Eastern worlds. Currently she is working towards her Masters this fall in Transpersonal Psychology at Naropa University.
