Le yoga de Dasha est une expérience bienfaitrice et joyeuse, il nous inspire un nouvel équilibre du corps et de l'esprit.

Dasha est née et a grandi en Sibérie avant de se lancer dans une carrière dans la finance à Londres. Elle change de vie en arrivant à Paris où elle pratique et enseigne le yoga avec une énergie infinie. Dasha donne des cours collectifs et particulier set organise des ateliers inoubliable. On en ressort plus fort, avec un corps et un mental d'acier et l'envie de progresser et d'évoluer en mieux pour soi et les autres ! On adore ce yoga tonifiant venu du froid. Interview.
 
 

1. What originally drew you to yoga – Comment avez-vous commencé à pratiquer le yoga ? 

Dasha : I would ask "who originally DRAGGED me to yoga?" My mama, she did. I disliked every moment of my first Hatha yoga practice I have to say. 

2. When you are not on the mat you are... – Que faites vous en dehors du tapis ? 

Dasha : Most likely being cozy at home with the family. Oh yes, crazy party days are over...

3. Do you follow a special diet – Suivez-vous un régime particular ? 

Dasha : No, I do not follow any special diet. I do not have meat in my ration but that would be it.  

4. Do you cook at home ? - Cuisinez-vous à la maison? 

Dasha : Yes and I like to keep it very simple when it comes to food. Steamed veggies (broccoli, mushrooms, cabbage, potatoes, brussels sprouts you name it !) with a fair drizzle of good olive oil, hint of salt and pepper. When it comes to more 'intelligent ingredients compilations'  I let my man do the work - he is a risotto master!

5. Describe your day when it comes to meals, drinks, snacks from morning to bedtime – Décrivez-nous vos repas/snacks/boisson tout au long de la journée? 

Dasha : During the 'winter season' starting my morning with the cup of warm water (or a hibiscus tea!) and spoon of honey is a must. During the day (especially when I teach a couple of classes) I either keep sipping on the hibiscus tea or coconut water. I like dark chocolate in every form and shape! A slice (or maybe 5 slices:)) of dark chocolate or a banana is a good 'snack' for me. Dinner time - it depends if I teach an evening class but as I mentioned I like to keep it simple. Wine? I would not say 'no' to a good glass of red wine.

6. What is one non-negotiable thing you each do every day to feel healthy/balanced? Avez-vous un impératif bien-être/équilibre good auquel vous ne dérogez jamais ? 

Dasha : Taking 10-15 mins of  'quiet time'  for myself during the day is a must. Just to be quiet, to breath, to self reflect. 

7. What is your favorite guilty indulgence? Quel est votre péché mignon ? 

Dasha : In addition to dark chocolate, I am also a huge fan of matcha ice cream, I mean I am extremely huge fan! 

8. What is the best piece of advice you've received when it comes to taking care of your body/spirit – Quel est le meilleur conseil que vous ayez reçu pour sentir bien dans vos baskets (body & mind) ?

Dasha :  To know the difference between my 'wants' and 'needs' in every day life. 

9. Personal mantra – Mantra personnel: 

Dasha : 'Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire'
