Welcome to SOAP, the Sum Of All Parts.
Thanks for visiting this site. My name is Sacha and I’m a fully qualified yoga teacher, hairstylist and colour technician.
I worked and trained with Toni& Guy for 15 years- annually updating my skills and training co-workers and apprentices whilst working in their busy Buxton salon.
I came to yoga at an early age, to balance the physical demands on the body of standing up all day and working around clients to colour, cut and dress hair. I have been teaching yoga to all levels of flexibility and ages since 2012.
Whether you want to approach a practice for increased flexibility and strength or for relaxation and mindfulness regular yoga classes offer you the opportunity to submerge into self-study, awareness and control.
If you’ve never tried yoga before and wondered about its effects I offer a free first-class pass. I’m trained in Iyengar yoga which lays emphasis on precision and detail in terms of alignment of the body and its energy channels in various different poses.
Classes consist of a physical sequence that firstly work to strengthen the body and improve awareness onto balancing the body and its more subtle elements. All sequences will finish with effective relaxation techniques and mindfulness towards breath patterns and their profound effects on performance and wellbeing.

Preen – Hair Services
Find it difficult to fit in touching up your roots, or can’t find time to go for that big hair change? When did you last get to pamper yourself?
Working mobile allows my clients to get all their hair needs to be done from the comfort of their home, to fit their schedules. I only cater to one household per day so you have my undivided attention without the hustle-bustle of other salon bookings.

Really enjoy the style of Sacha’s teaching. She approaches teaching yoga in a way that is full of experience, knowledge and with gentle humour. Her classes are inclusive and supportive for different levels of experience and ability with yoga, as she always finds ways to work with wherever you are at on your yoga journey. Coming to her classes has given me more confidence in my body as a source of strength, as Sacha guides and encourages you to push your limits about what you feel is possible. I really look forward to her sessions which I find so physically and emotionally nourishing.
I have been studying with Sacha for about four years and she has helped me evolve all aspects of my practice. Always friendly and welcoming; her classes are organised, structured and also great fun. I feel that Iyengar Yoga has enabled me to developmy own practice. The focus on alignment and energetic asanas make this school of Yoga a wonderful place to start.
Sacha has been cutting and colouring my hair brilliantly for 15 years I would never considered to go anywhere else she is so intuitive, listens to what you want and advises what’s best for you at the same time. Absolutely the best hairdresser I’ve ever come across and so skilled and accomplished.
I was a very nervous hair client all my life before meeting Sacha
Sacha’s visits are always a highlight for our family. Her friendly and professional manner means we are all super satisfied with our new hair colours and cuts. Sacha coming to our home is incredibly convenient and means we don’t have to struggle to obtain salon appointments we can all get to.
She is extremely talented and versatile, expert at both ladies’ and men’s styles, crafting for us all the crowning glory of our dreams!“
