I truly enjoy empowering others and giving them the tools and self awareness to live a healthy life. Understanding what makes you tick and how our bodies fucntion is a game changer.
I really enjoy the time and attention put in to what I need as a student. The session was very unique to what I needed that very day and the teaching very thorough. Not to mention the lightness of Ashlyn's presence and insight were a bonus.
For working with new students I find it essential to take the time to discuss what reason and goals a student has for wanting to practice yoga. Then further discussing background, injuries, current life circumstance and lifestyle so that a practice can be customized for individual needs.
I have been practicing yoga for almost 6 years in a variety of settings, in different states & countries, all different styles, which has really expanded my view and knowledge on the practice and philosophy behind it. I did my 200 hour yoga teaching training in Spain, which was an intensive, live-changing program. I am currently working on my 300 hour training and going back to school for Ayurveda (holistic Inidan medicine).
I do have a B.A. and B.S. from Western Carolina University with focuses in international relations and criminology which on the surface doesn't seem related to my current field but the trials and tribulations I experienced in my college years definitely make me who I am and transfer in to my teaching.
A typical 60 minute private is $75.00 however, I offer a package of 5 classes for $300 get a 6th class free (ends up being $60 per session with a free class).
I have worked with students of all ages, late teens all the way up to mid seventies. I have taught a variety of classes from quick moving, power classes to deep stretch, yoga ease classes.
I recently collaborated with a friend and taught a yoga sound journey where my friend played the crystal bowls, flute and other instruments while I taught and the response was amazing.
Be very clear on what it is you are trying to achieve and go with the teacher you feel drawn to.
