Sasha Warne

My journey in movement started when I was introduced to yoga at the age of 16. I was in love. When I was living in Dubai, I came across a pilates @ club stretch with Brian ward, on my return to South Africa I started a pilates course with pilates sa, mentoring under Nicole Sinoff for six years, during this time, yoga came back into life. I completed a 200 hour Hatha Vinyasa flow teacher training with Sarah Bentz and Cheryl Duncan in 2012.

I constantly attend as many workshops and conferences as possible. This allows me to keep updated and refreshed with the ever evolving market. I am fascinated by the exploration of the internal world that yoga has to offer and my classes are challenging as well as encourage students to connect deeply into the space of their bodies and breath. My vinyasa classes and workshops are filled with technique and alignment cues for all levels including pregnancy.
