Get to know the people of Delight Yoga

Sasha Van Aalst

Astanga LedMysore Program

I first came in to contact with yoga in a white room with a tree in the middle and Katiza Satya gently guiding how to salute and acknowledge the sun. I was young, tender and touched - a trace of wonder left behind. Years later while studying Art History at the University of Amsterdam, I began discovering Ashtanga Yoga in 2009 here at Delight Yoga. I've been practicing daily since 2012.


I have made long trips to Mysore, India to study with R. Sharath Jois. In March 2017 Sharath gave his blessing to go home and teach. So, with joy and curiosity, that is what I will do. I will continue to go to India regularly in order to study with Sharath, to learn, acknowledge and understand this method from within the context and culture of its origin, to travel and to see.


In 2015 I practiced with Brett Porzio in Stockholm. He showed me nourishment, warmth and humor. In Mysore I met Angela Jamison - in 2017 she invited me to study under her guidance as a teaching apprentice at her shala in Ann Arbor, Michigan. By incredible example, she showed how to live and teach with clarity, intuition and a subtle but strong voice. Heartfelt gratitude to both. 


For my own personal growth and transformation I take care to allow the unseen to be seen, felt and experienced, constantly. I see yoga as a beautiful, quiet gesture that consistently provides space to be exposed, to heal, to act selflessly and to surrender to something greater. Through daily practice I find spontaneous understanding and an orientation for life. 


Delight Yoga has been a cradle for me from the beginning and I am grateful of the guidance and support received from many of it’s corners. I will teach from experience, with an honest effort to create a steady, clear and gentle space, offering students a place of understanding and transformation.
