Yogini | Nurturer | Empath | Mama
An avid yogi, blissologist and inspired organizer of experiences that connect people to the nectar and joys of life. Sasha has dedicated her life path to total well-being with the belief that our health is our divine wealth and love is our ultimate healer!
Sasha has spent the majority of the last 14 years practicing yoga, traveling, and directing spa’s from Exhale Spa and Equilibrium in Boston, to Spa Montage in Laguna Beach, CA and now resides in Ubud, Bali with her loving family - partner Brad and daughters Solana and Nya.
Sasha is a registered yoga instructor through Yoga Alliance (RYT 200) with teaching roots in the various traditions of Vinyasa Flow and Astanga.
To Sasha, there is nothing more satisfying than watching people unfold and open up to the wonder and natural beauty of being! Sasha believes the world needs more people to step outside of their comfort zone of their secure 9-5pm desk jobs to explore life, take risks, and have some fun, so they can reconnect to their True Nature. In doing so they will be transformed into individuals who have the ability to better serve the world at large. True to her heart, Pure Immersions is a product of her love for Bali, yoga, living foods, nature, raw chocolate, laughter, music, and healing modalities from all walks of life.
Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. -- Harold Whitman
Organizer | Nature Enthusiast | Storyteller
Brad's career-arc follows quite closely to "where he's at in life." After his time (and degree) at Michigan State University, Brad felt quite anxious. Staring at a future in the advertising industry, he felt trapped by a horizon that was dotted in cultural expectation. The 9 to 5 career, mortgage/debt, suburban life, etc. a whole lot of "real world" (in)action. Unconvinced that this future was necessary, he pointed west and began a career in outdoor and environmental education, which, at least initially, represented a chance to be outside every day and to see the world through a different lens.
Following a decade honing his skills in group facilitation, deep ecology, leadership development (which essentially means: personal awareness), and organizational management, Brad again pointed west... just a lot further west this time.
He's excited about Pure Immersions because it in it's entirety acts like a close friend, providing people with a place to share their story and to quite simply move on from it... into the next great version of what each person can be. As that is what our life's journey is all about.
