Pasha Hogan is an author, psychotherapist, workshop/retreat leader, speaker, yoga/meditation teacher and Reiki Master/Teacher based in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
When life catapulted Pasha onto a spiritual path of exploration and discovery over 20 years ago, Pasha was introduced to Reiki, Yoga and Meditation and has never looked back! As a spiritual seeker and lover of life, Pasha has a daily personal practice which feeds her heart and soul and always serves as a safe place to land in the midst of the vicissitudes of life.
An avid world traveler, she has traveled extensively throughout Europe, India and Asia honoring and celebrating diversity in all its forms. Hiking in mountains, riding bikes and horses, sunrises, sunsets, full moons, dark chocolate and sharing long meals with friends are just some of the things that make her heart sing.
