Ever wondered just why you feel so much better after a yoga class? This workshop with psychotherapist and yoga teacher, Sasha Bates, will explore just what it is we are doing in mind and body when we practice.

A short talk about the therapeutic impact of yoga will precede a gentle asana and pranayama class, suitable for all.


“I have recently participated in a workshop about loss with Sasha Bates ahead of the publication of her book, Languages of Loss.
As a therapist, working with bereaved clients, I wanted to learn what is often the hardest challenge of all: finding the language around grief, death, loss and bereavement.

Sasha shone a tender and hopeful light through the dark clouds of this painful topic. In her respectful, humorous, intelligent and honest manner she deeply engaged a room full of people who laughed, cried, opened up and shared their experiences too.

Sasha taught us not to shy away from the topic and to invite any feelings and emotions into the dialogue. She shared with us her own experience of coping with loss through poems and intimate personal journaling.

I want to wish you Sasha good luck with your book and in your healing and inspirational journey.”


Sharon Kaplansky, psychotherapist
