Sacha Yoga Life is the best quality and most underrated yoga experience I've encountered. Sacha is an extremely talented yoga instructor who provides an excellent service. Her past career as a nurse and medical knowledge of the body means you can trust and feel safe that the positions and their variations will not cause more harm than good. Sacha has the perfect balance of assertion, kindness, strength and confidence that makes you feel comfortable and accepted in the space and during the class. The classes cater for all abilities and limitations so that if a position causes any difficulty for you there's another variation available for you. All yoga classes should be like this and I hope this is able to grow so that Sacha can train and hire more instructors to provide this same level of class. Candles are lit, incense is burned and gentle music is played that creates the atmosphere for this self-oriented evening escape. Sacha even gives a head/neck& shoulder massage with oils at the end of the session that perfectly relaxes, compliments and completes the yoga experience. She brings this to smaller local communities as well as more central locations and always brings her whole self to a session and is truly present in the moment. Sacha's practise also incorporates elements of and is stationed in a self-care, self-acceptance and self-love setting. Follow her Instagram @sachayogalife for self-care posts and mind & body wellness perspective and motivation. I've attended her classes since they first began in Rotherhithe and despite anxiety, insecurity and having never done yoga before I was so impressed and captivated by the first session and was motivated and made time to come every week that I could since. I couldn't recommend or rate Sacha's classes enough- she cares, knows exactly what she's doing, commits to her work and has a true gift for this. Having the space of just one hour a week for yourself especially in a Sacha Yoga Life class is trans-formative for your mind, body and soul. It really is a great step to learning about the importance of this space and looking after yourself. I swiftly noticed my own progress, understanding and abilities develop physically and mentally after several sessions and even when I haven't had a great week, am exhausted, holding tension in my body or haven't taken great care of me I'm able to participate with different pose variations and work with what's available to me without feeling lesser-than or not belonging in the group. It's been a stable constant for me in difficult times and helped me manage and balance stresses in my life with both the weekly class itself and what you can take from it to implement in your every day life and overall mindset. I couldn't recommend more and truly wish Sacha every success with her business, personal & professional journey- she deserves a lot of recognition and appreciation- get to this class before everyone does!
Our company Child Graddon Lewis Architects enlisted Sacha to provide early morning Yoga sessions to the staff across the summer months as an integral part of our Wellness programme. We were delighted with the professional, friendly and skilled service Sacha delivered. The classes were well-attended by staff who enjoyed the classed and felt more focused going into their working days as a result. We look forward to booking further classes with Sacha in the future!
I attended a 1-2-1 yoga lesson with Sacha and was really impressed. Sacha’s instruction was clear and went at a pace that suited me. She had a really calm manner and made me feel very comfortable throughout the session. I have done some yoga practice before and Sacha combined supporting my existing ability and challenging me to take some positions and parts of the sequence further. Sacha also used hands on at appropriate points to help me get further into certain positions. I would recommend Sacha’s 1-2-1 sessions wholeheartedly.
I work as a Midwife and after work I suffer from back pain and stiffness. When explaining to Sacha how stiff I felt she told me about yoga. I always thought yoga was not for me since I was not stretchy, I was so wrong! After a session with Sacha I felt FREE, so lightweight, as if I wasn't carrying a stone in my back anymore. I could feel my whole body again and move without discomfort :) Yoga with Sacha is the discovery of the year. She didn't make me feel like I was an ignorant duck. She listened to me, helped me with the positions and found the right yoga poses for my needs.
Thanks Sacha for introducing me to the world of yoga.
I have just completed my first one to one lesson with Sacha. I’ve been going to yoga for the last 18 months and due to an injury had to stop attending classes. Sacha was able to tailor a sequence that worked for my ability and limitations and had a great knowledge and understanding of anatomy. Having not been able to do yoga for 3 months, she’s given me the confidence to get back on my mat.
Just did a lovely virtual pregnancy yoga session with Sacha, and am so glad I did. I definitely felt stiff after nearly two weeks of hardly leaving the house, and so this was the little boost I needed. I definitely hope to join in again over the next few weeks of lockdown and before baby comes in May. Thanks Sacha x
I did a virtual power yoga class this morning with Sacha and it was brilliant! it took a little time getting used to watching Sacha and n a screen instead of in person but through the power of webcams she could correct or alter poses to suit everyone taking part's needs and abilities and at the end we were able to talk to each other. Also, the classes are great value for money and Sacha even offers an NHS discount. Highly recommended!!! (quokka pic for attention)
