I first met Sasha Riess several years ago when he participated in the Oster International Invitational Tournament of Champions in the United States.
Only 35 of the world’s top groomers were invited to compete every year in this prestigious event. You couldn’t just enter this contest…you had to be invited and invitations were based on a groomer’s list of achievements.
Sasha won one of the top prizes and from that time on, I have been extremely impressed with his talent and artistry. Since that time, I have had the pleasure of participating with him in several seminars in the United States. Sasha Riess truly is one of the most gifted and artistic groomers in the world.
His knowledge of the grooming and care of all breeds of dogs … whether they are to be exhibited at dog shows or they are just pets … is exceptional. He has groomed and handled hundreds of dogs to their FCI championships and he has also served as a grooming competition judge. If you are looking for a future in grooming, you couldn’t find a better teacher than Sasha.
Sasha Riess is a super star in the world of grooming. His breed knowledge, artistic eye and skill level put him in an elite class of dog professionals. Sasha’s gentle approach and caring personality make him an instructor extraordinaire. You will love learning with Sasha.
Message form Sasha..
Hello and welcome to the Miami Winter School. I want to share a little of my philosophy before you enroll and arrive, so we can feel in harmony from the first moment of meeting and be ready to share knowledge and a deeper sense of learning.
As the New Year approaches, and you consider how to refresh yourselves and gain new insights, you may feel a need to be different…to change.
In this, I urge you to think of what being different really means. Our culture often says that to be successful, we must differentiate ourselves. In this belief, I spent much of my life and career, shaping myself into what I thought I should be. It wasn’t until later that I began to question what I was doing: What did it mean to be different? Different from whom? How could all this work to attain someone else’s idea of perfection be the path to differentiation?
Many days passed until I recognized this. I had wanted to be different, yes. But not from others. I had been trying to be different from myself.
It required strength and courage to turn that around and learn to respect my own qualities. The message had been there all along, coded deep inside of me, waiting for me to realize it. So this is who I am, I am different.
Therefore I dedicate this welcome to each of you in your search for change. It is my belief that we each find our true differences—that unique value we bring to the world—when we couple technical skills with the ability to harness the grace of our inner selves. And toward that goal, I hope I can give added strength as you pursue your dreams.
So, this is my goal!
And how can you get to yours? How should you take the advantage of this moment to free yourself from routine and discover your difference?
The road that has brought you here is art. THE art. You and I share a passion for the art of grooming! In this we are alike. How our passions for art are realized will vary in subtle ways because of who we are inside and where that understanding takes us. As the students of one artist develop their own signatures, you will develop and refine yours as we travel this road together.
Our school emphasizes classic disciplines. But it also opens the door to the design of new forms and shapes by listening to your heart, letting your fears, emotions, happiness and sorrow come through. This is the magic—or what I call the free flow of excellence. At the same time, we apply science, mathematics, discipline and technique. Because nothing beautiful comes from chaos.
Once you find your difference, I am confident it will become your biggest strength. And if your experience is at all like mine has been, you can be sure it is the most direct path to inner peace.
