Learn tango and what tango can teach you for life
The fabulous Kelly Macias, writer, storyteller, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Consultant, did tango-life-coaching with Sasha for six months before her first trip to Buenos Aires. Watch the video to hear Kelly’s story and learn about her tango transformation.
What can you explore or achieve through Tango Your Life?
What if I told you that you could:
- Explore intimacy
- Become more confident
- Reconnect to yourself and your sensuality
- Chart a new path for your work or your love life
- Learn to walk in a new, sexy, “tango” way
And you could do all that while also becoming a better dancer?!
You don’t have to know how to tango. You can be a total beginner or have a few years tango or other dance experience. You can be any age.
Tango Your Life is a life-coaching program that will help you connect with your body as we work on your goals.
What makes Tango Your Life unique is that you’ll be integrating your body into your life-coaching journey. You’ll be amazed by the connections you’ll find between coaching, personal development, and dance.
This life-changing work will stay with you because it becomes embedded in your physicality. When you anchor a lesson in your body beyond your brain, it becomes part of you.
Tango Your Life will be tailored to meet your specific goals.
Each person is different. You could choose to focus on:
Becoming comfortable in your own skin
Taking up space and standing up for yourself
Navigating life transitions such as break-ups and divorce
Advancing at work, in a career change or business
Finding love, or bringing more passion into a cohesive partnership
Note: If you have already done some initial work on past trauma in therapy, tango is a beautiful way to work through the impact of past trauma left in your body, such as shame that you may be carrying in your body. Working with Sasha will give you a safe trauma-aware space to talk about what you are discovering through dance.
“I love that you and Wanda are adapting your game-changing tango plus life-coaching to the current times! Combining tango and coaching was so motivating and a wonderful experience for me, and I know it will be a wonderful experience for new clients.“–Kerry Lander, Melbourne, Australia
You’ll use tango as a mirror
We like to say, as in tango, as in life. The study of tango gives every person reflection moments that give you an opening in yourself and a path, and through that path you find your own answers.
The aha moments produce personal revelations through your body.
Why tango and not salsa, or another dance? Tango is an improvisational dance. Unlike most dances, there is no choreography.
In every moment, we take another tango step, not knowing what’s coming next. Just like life, playfulness, curiosity, and finding personal balance are key. This makes tango a beautiful metaphor for finding everything you need within yourself to walk through life in a new, more confident and grounded way.
“Working with Sasha and Wanda in tango life coaching has been an amazing and life-changing experience! Both of them are very genuine, caring people and great at what they do. The combination of coaching and tango has opened me up to a whole new way of being–one where I feel a sense of creativity, exploration, and curiosity. Instead of working against myself and my body (like I have done for many years because of childhood trauma), I am learning to enjoy my body to find more healing. This work (which has felt like play) has helped me feel more connection and pleasure. I have so many tools to keep improving all of my relationships. I am so grateful!”–Mindy Lathen, Doula, Utah
Every Tango Your Life Program is personalized
The program will be individualized for you, based on the goals you are exploring in life coaching and your experience in dance, needs, background, age, etc.
You have the option of adding tango lessons with Wanda. If you add tango lessons, one week you have coaching, the next week you have your tango lesson. You also have the option of working with a local tango teacher and bringing that experience to your sessions with Sasha. Or maybe you are studying ballroom, salsa, swing, or other Latin dance.
If you work with both Sasha and Wanda, we meet between your sessions to design your tango program for you connecting the issues that come up in coaching with your tango lessons, to weave the lessons together for you body, mind, and spirit.
Your sessions with Sasha take place over phone, Skype or Whatsapp, and your lessons with Wanda on Zoom.
Surprisingly, we’ve discovered though the pandemic that learning tango at home via private Zoom tango lessons can be a great way to learn proper form, better than group classes because you are forced to develop a new level of connection with your body. People often develop bad habits in group classes when learning steps.
Through our methodology, and all the personalized attention you receive, you develop a body awareness and balance that will make you an even stronger dancer moving forward.
“Tango as a ‘practice’ is so healing. We don’t get that kind of embrace and connection in the US. It’s not about the steps. It’s life changing. Thank you, Sasha, for your sensitivity, your heart, and sharing your profound connections!”–Justyn Livingston, Tile Artist, Bend, Oregon
Who Tango Your Life is for
Adults of every age–there is no expiration date on tango dreams. If you can walk and hug, you’ll do fine.
From total beginner to years dancing
Single, dating, partnered, married, poly…all good.
No need for a partner.
This program is designed for you to do on your own to build a foundation in your own body for a fluid partnership on the dance floor.
The essence of tango is connection. To connect with someone else on the dance floor, first you must connect with yourself. We also give you instruction on how to practice with a partner (a friend, a life partner, or a fellow dancer).
Tango Your Life includes:
Tango Your Life gives you life coaching sessions that will help you to anchor the life-changing lessons you are learning through dance in your life.
2 one-hour life-coaching sessions with Sasha per month for six months. 12 sessions total.
Email support between sessions.
If you choose to add tango, you’ll have 2 private 1-hour tango lessons per month with Wanda that will give you a solid foundation in tango. 12 lessons total.
You’ll learn original Argentine tango culture from an Argentine and American, not the Dancing with the Stars choreographed version, with references specific to you, your age, gender, body type, and interests.
A private Facebook group with other graduates of Tango Your Life Coaching program. When it’s safe to travel again, you can choose to come together to Buenos Aires to dance.
Only Tango Your Life graduates get the chance to go on Sasha’s Tango Adventure post-pandemic, so this is your way in! Talk about something to look forward to!
“I can’t tell you how much this work about physical presence with you Sasha has impacted me. I work for Wall Street banks and there are very few role models of authentic femininity. I find myself relating differently to people in meetings. I feel more powerful and connected to my total authentic self. I am more visibly relaxed and can lead and listen from a place of confidence. A lot of girls and women present their physical selves in the world as if we are small, delicate and vulnerable rather than embodying our physical selves as strong and confident. If I go into a meeting with the image of being a queen with a crown on my head then what happens?”–Martha, Management Consultant, Chicago
Why I created the Tango Your Life Coaching Program

What inspired me to start the Tango Your Life Life Coaching Program? Really it was my own experience of healing through tango in Buenos Aires and the certainty that so many other women would benefit from the experience. In tango, I discovered a mirror for real life and relationships, helping me to reshape my posture—and heal my soul. Tango Your Life is created from the heart based on all the knowledge I collected in ten years of research in my own body-mind healing, chronicled in my forthcoming memoir Wet, which tells the story of healing from the impact of childhood sexual abuse.
I knew that tango was something special from the first time I saw the dance performed in Colombia in 2010 during a yearlong solo backpacking trip in South America. My tango passion grew in Buenos Aires where I lived for six years immersed in the study of tango and PsicoTango.
As a Master Life Coach working with clients since 2013 (trained in CTI [Coach Training Institute] principles, the largest coach training organization in the world) I’ve integrated tango into my work with many clients to great results.
My diverse background in business, publishing, female empowerment, and healing allows me to help clients in a variety of ways, from negotiating business deals to deepening intimacy.
I invited Wanda to join me in creating this program after we spent four years working together leading a transformative tango tour in Buenos Aires.
Wanda is Argentine, an architect-turned-tango-teacher, and one of the most well-loved teachers from Buenos Aires. Wanda’s students adore her warmth, brilliance, and teaching. I can’t recommend her more highly.
