Ashley is a mental health professional and RYT-200, who is passionate about sharing the integration of subtle energy within asana practice. Ashley started her restorative and power yoga home practice as a young gymnast, athlete, & dancer. Her desire to teach others later grew as her practice intensified, while recovering from severe physical trauma.
Ashley's teaching is inspired by studies in holistic wellness, non-dual tantra, and the core components of different asana styles (Baptiste, Forrest, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Kripalu, and Vinyasa Flow are among her favorites.) She aims to share a safe space for exploration and restoration with students, in which they are empowered to know the wisdom, or teacher, within themselves.
In 2018 Ashley completed the Baptiste Institute’s “Unstoppable Youth” kids’ mindfulness and yoga teaching certification in Louisiana, hoping to bring mindfulness to her practice as a counselor of children & families. In 2019, Ashley completed her 200 hour teacher training at Full Circle School of Yoga & Intuitive Arts in Florida. Her training emphasized the mind-body-spirit connection, alignment, breath-work, Ayurveda, aromatherapy, mantra, sound, & kundalini energy. When she is not on the mat, you can find this yogi immersed in travel, music, writing, and art. She is passionate about furthering her studies as a yoga teacher, counseling children with autism, and walking with others through their own journeys to wellness, creativity, & community.
