Sasha (Alexandra) Zavyalova, CMT
Sasha received her massage therapy certification from the Aveda Institute Minneapolis, and Craniosacral therapy training from the Upledger Institute. She came to her bodywork practice after studying herbalism as an apprentice and practicing yoga and meditation for many years as a part of her personal healing journey. Her BA in cultural studies and theory informed her in how to navigate culture and belief systems in the world of healing and wellness.
As a first generation immigrant from Russia, she feels very passionate about including intersectional identities, and working with diverse communities. She is interested in the way integration and deconstruction of the mind body dichotomy opens new doors for wellness and well-being in ones life and relationships. When she is not diving deep, Alexandra enjoys playing music, writing and making visual art in South Minneapolis.
