Ashley was drawn to yoga in 2008 after years of running and competing in soccer had taken a toll on her body causing stress fractures, constant knee pain, and overall body tightness and fatigue. Deciding it was time for a change; she took her first Bikram Yoga class with her sister, who is an advocate of health and fitness through yoga.
Ashley immediately realized the power of yoga in healing and nurturing the body and spirit. She fell in love with this yoga from day one and has been practicing ever since.
Ashley graduated in 2010 from The University of Alabama with a degree in Public Health. Upon graduating she moved back to Florida and took a job in retail which caused even more stress to her body due to long hours of being on her feet all day. In 2013 she left her retail job for a career in yoga.
Ashley attended Bikram’s intensive 9 week teacher training in Spring of 2013 in Los Angeles, CA and when she returned home to Florida she quickly made teaching Bikram Yoga her full time job. “My goal as a teacher is share my passion for the incredible mental and physical health benefits that Bikram Yoga offers with all of my students.”
Ashley feels this yoga has healed her body from the inside out and she loves watching others experience the healing benefits as well.
