Sasha Dae ~ Yoga Therapist & Teacher Trainer

Arkaya Yogini

Namaste fellow yogis,

I’m Canadian, born in Vancouver, from an organic and holistic home, first introduced to yoga at age four, by my grandmother, who began her practice at age twenty as a Vivekananda Disciple. My summers were spent on a forty acre horse farm with lots of other animals. My grandfather, my aunt and uncle were dressage trainers and I started with my first pony at age four. My Moma and I would practice yoga in the early morning and then do the farm chores and work in the garden, collecting food for breakfast and dinner. I lost interest in yoga as a teen but came back intensely in my early twenties after a spiritual god realization in a particular waterfall, called Mala Noche. My family has been vacationing to Costa Rica for over twenty years and for the past five years I have been living in here on the Pacific Coast of Central America.

I opened and operated a studio, Ananda Yoga, by my own design from the ground up, dedicated to those who were new to yoga, it was the first yoga studio in a suburb of Vancouver. After three years teaching fifteen to twenty classes per week, carrying the budget and micro managing everything, I fried my nervous system and was just burnt out, so, traded the biz for life and liberty in the jungle and on the beaches of Costa Rica.

I am Yoga Alliance E-RYT200 and have several certifications with over 2000 hours of teaching to all ages and levels of ability, my focus is on safely guiding clientele through physical postures with emphasis on alignment and the breath, my knowledge base is founded on practiced techniques and intuition in order to assist in the healing process of mind/body/spirit, to strengthen and lengthen, release stress, increase awareness, cultivate acceptance and promote an enriching personal practice from the earth up!
