Testimonial

“Yoga students who work with Ashley soon learn that the body is not all there is, the mind is not just a passive witness to the journey, and the heart is not simply along for the ride. She imbues the physical dimension of yoga with intelligence, the esoteric dimension with practicality and humor, and the heart-centered dimension with disarming intimacy. Even after more than four decades of yoga practice and teaching, being a student in her class is for me a great delight."     - Sal Familia, Yoga Scholar
