Ashley grew up in North County San Diego surrounded by the culture of yoga. The idea and experience of yoga has always intrigued and moved her. She began a meditation series at the YMCA at the age of 12 and incorporated yoga as a competitive gymnast as an adolescent. Doing this work at such a young age ingrained in her a deep-rooted understanding of the necessity and importance of duality. It takes both strength and fluidity to practice anything in an aligned way.
She began practicing yoga on a regular basis in 1999 and immediately felt a strong connection to it. In 2009, she did her 200 hour certification and continues to actively engage life as a practice of yoga. She consistently practiced yoga through her first two pregnancies, and completed a 100 hour advanced pre and post natal yoga training during her third pregnancy.
Ashley is known for having a gentle heart. She is easy to be around and her intention is to offer a practice where people feel safe, calm and supported.
