At first yoga was just another workout, another way to mix things up at the gym, but once Kirsten discovered that she no longer needed her weekly chiropractor appointments for her chronic lower back pain it quickly evolved into something so much more. It became her passion. She discovered firsthand the physical healing benefits of yoga and was excited to share this with the world.
Kirsten is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT500) with the Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with a Registered Yoga School (RYS). She completed her training at the Drishti Yoga Teacher Training Institute (DYTTI) with a focus in Power Vinyasa Flow Yoga. This style of yoga incorporates cardio, strength, balance, flexibility, and meditation into one class and with over 13 years of yoga experience she is able to work with students of all levels, from beginners to experienced yogis.
She has continued her yoga education since her training and also has experience in Beginner’s Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Child Yoga, and Chair Yoga. Yoga really is for everyone!
Ashley is a current E-RYT 200 Yoga and Barre instructor working towards earning her Yoga Therapist certification. She has practiced many styles of yoga including Vinyasa Flow, Yin, Restorative, Chair, Hatha, Kundalini, Ashtanga, and Kids Yoga.
Ashley teaches to all age groups and yoga levels. She really enjoys working with children teaching “animal yoga” poses as well as adults looking to strengthen their practice. She brings a unique style to her Barre classes that is both beginner friendly and a great challenge to seasoned students.
Ashley practices as a Guardian Ad Litem Attorney representing children in abuse situations and adoptions. During this practice, she repeatedly observes the benefit of breathing techniques and meditation or “quiet time” for children and adults working through difficult situations. She has continually returned to the teachings of yoga and meditation over her last 20 years of practice in order to help others physically, mentally, and emotionally.
