Yoga Student Testimonial

I experienced Sasha’s teaching for one month in October 2010.
The course was comprised of mixed abilities, one person had not done Yoga before.

People wanted to get into the hardcore stretch immediately, wanting, overnight to accomplish what needed to be taken steadily i.e. becoming Yoga Teachers.

Sasha’s programme was perfect! It started slowly, which some resented, but the build up was just right, ending in the Hatha which was so desired by many! The ArkayaYoga was a gentle and deep way of building stamina; amazing for those starting out and great for building strength and flexibility! Sasha was amazing at leading and energising the group, working her magic subtly! This was the perfect way to start the group on its journey to becoming yoga teachers and assisted each and everyone toward healing themselves.

Restorative yoga was the next part of the programme, it took each individual to a relaxed and happy state of mind. Sasha was very gentle with the group during this session it was a great session to get the group ready for the much awaited Hatha! Yin was tough and somewhat darkened the mood of the group however kept us all focused! Kundalini was wonderful and furthered the healing in the group.

Finally Hatha Yoga, the group was now ready physically, spiritually and emotionally to really get into the postures. The course, prepared and given by Sasha was healing informative and helpful, preparing each individual to teach. Sasha is certainly a healer, an inspiration (she is so beautiful to watch and to emanate), she is kind, patient and passionate about what she does. I cannot recommend her enough as a teacher and a healer.

Sasha was my yoga teacher for over a year in Coquitlam, BC, Canada. She was a wonderful teacher, that clearly displayed her knowledge, love and appreciation for yoga. Each class brought forth a challenge for each individual, which she noted each strength and weakness of her students, helping them achieve their personal goals. Every class was a physical and spiritual journey, which is a true testament to the dedication Sasha has for yoga.
I have yet to find an instructor as attentive and devoted as Sasha. I wish her continued success, happiness, and fulfillment in her yoga career

Because you offer so many different styles of yoga, Arkaya, Restorative, Hatha, Kundalini, Yin, the Yoga Swing, Music and Laughter are the reasons why I choose your training.

It was very new and scary and unknown getting there to Costa Rica, and thinking how it will be and how we will fit and how the whole training will be, but as soon the training started I had a good feeling.

I absolutely loved the first few days, that feeling of something so new and your style of teaching and how you incorporated the healing parts to it. How you would mention very interesting things during your class, or pointers that will help us with our teaching. Loved your closing at the end in fetal position, going back to your childhood and the part where we would think of a good memory when we were little. Loved it, when I heard it first it almost made me cry. It was quiet emotional. I love your voice and the whole experience in the class was soothing over all.

Your structure of the class and how you went about it I trusted. Even though others were questioning it at first but I knew from the start why you did it, IT MADE SENSE! In order to make space to open up our bodies to prepare us for the second part, to be able to hold the poses longer and more gracefully. So I did enjoy Arkaya and Restorative very much!

The tapping I really loved! :)

I still need to read and study much of the manual and I know I will do that many times over till I imprinted it in my mind, but I really appreciate what you have included in it. The parts about nutrition, the parts on toxins that are not good for us, the whole on healthier living, the whole philosophy and history of it.
The sequences, the mantras, anatomy and all the other amazing info!! Thank you!! And I bet it was not easy to put it all together, so I appreciate it!!

I love all that because that is what I usually read, there was so much reference to the books that I just adore and cherish deeply or to books that I am so looking forward to read.

I very much value and appreciate your honesty and humbleness when you didn’t have full info on something or if there was something that was new to you how you went about it.

The whole program and the whole experience has been amazing! I am so thankful I was a part of it and my feelings haven’t changed since the initial decision to take my training with you, I am trying to separate the drama that happened from my experience as a whole, but at the same time I see it as a whole and I learn from it too. Overall teaching was great. I think we as students and future teachers need the most time that we can get on the mat. And it is wonderful when you are there to supervise and give pointers. I enjoyed that you were there for my class! Thank you!

I think you handled the all the challenges/interruptions with a particular very well and in dealing with the very disrespectful drama that had occurred, I think it was very annoying at times when she was trying to say this and that.. it was all too much on her end, she came off being insecure and obstinate and I wonder why she signed up for your program??! I think any teacher would lose their cool long time ago. And I can see how that can interrupt your thought and the class. You did point out for any suggestions to be given to you after class, unless someone has something to share from their experience regarding that particular subject, and she never did in front of you, just behind your back, which is not very yogi like!! I respect that you kept your cool after all and kept going!!! Way to go! Thanks for sticking with us!

I know that you are an amazing teacher and you have the potential to become even greater and touch many many more people!

On with the journey… I had a revelation today! The universe does not revolve around me!! Ha! The universe revolves around the universe which I’m a part of :)
It’s not really about just me. It’s about experiencing different cultures and everything the universe has to offer us… actually taking note, appreciating and not taking it for granted… All this in one day…one day….one day! Most don’t get the chance to experience this in a lifetime… I’m learning I truly should live in the moment. These are lifelong memories instilled in my brain that I’ll have and be forever grateful for. I’m not lost. I’m lucky and fortunate and blessed. I mean, who really gets to do this??? I’m right here, living, breathing, experiencing life. This is life… in the fullest! I’m just gonna go with it and enjoy the ride…


Yoga Student + Friend Testimonial

I have been friends with Sasha Dae since 2009.
I am not a yogi nor do I have a consistent yoga practice, I have taken some gym yoga classes before and had several classes over the past year, with Sasha. In comparison to the yoga I have experienced previously and the yoga with Sasha, I have to say that the energy Sasha gives as a teacher and healer is far beyond standard gym yoga classes. I find her extremely beautiful to watch in practice, and know that some women here attempt to imitate her style. Her energy is very high and she is always happy and smiling.

My work in Costa Rica is in the tourism business, I host tourist and make sure they have everything they need to enjoy Costa Rica. I go out often in the evenings, to restaurants and bars, with my clientele. It is very rare that I see Sasha out, although I invite her out frequently. It is a special occasion to see her out dancing in the disco, I know she would rather prepare her own healthy meals and eat at home alone or with a close friend. At the Kirtan event she hosted in Montezuma it was a perfect pleasure to see her engaged in ecstatic song and dance without the darkness, laser lights and the mash of people in a disco club.

Sasha Dae is a kind, compassionate and dynamic soul, I cannot recommend her enough in helping other souls to realize their full potential.
