Ashley discovered yoga as a distance runner and was instantly drawn to the creative and fluid aspects of the practice. Over several years she completed over 1200 hours of training in Baptiste Yoga and has peppered in educational experiences in several other modalities including Thai Yoga Massage and Restorative Yoga. She pours intention and intuition into powerful Vinyasa sequences that challenge and inspire students to be fully connected and fully themselves. Ashley has her M.S. in Kinesiology and Applied Physiology and enjoys work throughout the Vail Valley as a Massage Therapist, Trainer and Private Yoga Teacher. As an avid trail runner she loves hard work, getting deep into nature, soaking up the views and experiencing the pure joy of being alive. She jumps in to all that life in the mountains has to offer with her husband and two children and adores winding down with a glass of wine and a warm chocolate chip cookie.
