About the Instructor

Tashi Saucier

Tashi first visited Shoshoni for a short Work Study in 2010, while he was still in middle school. He came back for his Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in 2015, and then joined the staff in 2018. His enthusiasm for spiritual growth is contagious, and his dedication to the ashram inspiring. Tashi runs the Shoshoni kitchen, preparing delicious food for guests throughout the year. “I love to provide nourishing food for people, especially warm, hearty meals like your mom would make you.” When he’s not in the kitchen or on his meditation cushion, Tashi enjoys making pottery, painting, and bread making.

The scenery is gorgeous with hiking all around, staff is excellent, the food is delicious, the temples are beautiful, the yoga is great and relaxing, and the cabins are clean and nice. I always feel so peaceful there and the meditation is wonderful. It’s a very spiritual place and wonderful for decompressing from city life and for getting back to your true self.
