Sasha Simone began her yoga journey at the Sivananda Ashram in India in 2005 where she completed her first teacher training. She went on to study with Eddie Modestini & Nicky Doane on Maui in the Iyengar lineage where she was introduced to yoga therapy. Sasha then studied under Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee in NYC where she completed the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program. Sasha offers Urban Zen Restorative Yoga, a multidimensional modality that blends restorative yoga, Reiki, essential oil therapy, and breath awareness. In her classes, she loves to create a peaceful space where people can drop into the silence within and find comfort in their own skin. In a world of busyness & stimulation, Urban Zen offers an opportunity to retreat into an effortless state of being. Physical alignment is supported by various props and a practice of inner yoga begins-- an intimacy with one's breath and inner sensations. Sasha believes the practice of restorative yoga serves as a wonderful compliment to Hatha and Vinyasa practices and is suitable for both beginners and long-time practitioners.
