Sasha Nelson is an international yoga and meditation instructor, wellness consultant, and sustainability enthusiast from California currently based in Paris. She supports communities and individuals in learning how to infuse mindful practices into their modern lifestyles to benefit the wellbeing of mind, body, and planet. An avid traveler, she seeks to discover and introduce yogic principles and practices in the form of food and culture worldwide.
Sasha is committed to an earth-conscious lifestyle from the food we eat, to the products we purchase, to the way we live. A former Fashion Merchandising MFA graduate from Academy of Art University with an emphasis in eco-friendly fashion, she collaborates with brands who stress the importance of sustainable and fair-trade initiatives.
Sasha teaches vinyasa-style classes that incorporate a clear attention to the breath, alignment, and thoughtful execution. She applies yogic principles of sthira (effort)/sukha (ease) through sequences that challenge strength and attention, while encouraging playfulness and appreciation for showing up exactly as you are.
When you don’t find her doing any of the aforementioned, you’ll find Sasha experimenting in the kitchen, studying Ayurveda, dancing, learning the ukulele, and exploring new places
