Ashley began her yoga journey in January 2010, with a background of over twenty years of ballet, jazz, and modern dance. Upon returning to Southern California in 2008 after living in Italy for 10 years, she was diagnosed with thyroid disease. She went through two sessions of radioactive iodine to reduce the size of her overactive thyroid, which left her feeling lethargic, weak, unmotivated, and desperate for better overall health. Yoga completely changed Ashley, making her the strongest she has ever been, and continues to improve the connection between her mind, body, and breath. She brings encouragement, hands-on adjustments, visualization, and the Yoga Sutras to her classes. Ashley believes that Yoga gives you the confidence to know and feel that everything is as it should be, and you are already perfect exactly the way you are.

- Yin Yoga
Temperature: Room Temperature
Description: Challenging in a different way, Yin Yoga consists of longer held, mostly seated or lying postures that passively stretch connective tissue and muscles in order to unblock held energy and release physical tightness. Accompanied by relaxing music and guided instruction to help still and quiet the mind, yin yoga will help students gain greater flexibility and mobility, as well as a new sense of calm and balance that carries throughout the day. Yin Yoga is a great way to balance the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga. Yin is practiced in a cool room and appropriate for all levels (including prenatal).
