In 2012, Sasha Crossman decided it was time for a change of scenery (and weather) and moved from New York to sunny Los Angeles. It was there that she first discovered yoga. This new hobby promptly became a passion: she fell in love with yoga, and with the mental and physical benefits that it offered. Sasha devoted much of her time and energy to an elevated understanding of the practice of yoga, eventually earning her 200-hour RYT certification through the Yoga Alliance.
Sasha sees her yoga practice as an essential part of her life. Her wish is to encourage everyone to begin their own practice and to thereby open themselves up to the possibility of change in their lives. She currently resides in Los Angeles, California where she teaches private and small group sessions in power yoga. She also frequently donates her time and expertise by leading free yoga courses at various nonprofit organizations. Recently, Sasha decide to start her own non-profit, Yoga Forward, with hopes of bringing free yoga classes to underserved communities.
Beyond her life as a yoga instructor, Ms. Crossman is a graduate student at the University of Southern California. She is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Secondary Education. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in English from the State University of New York, at Albany.
