Nice to meet you!
HI! I’m Ashley.* I’m a yoga teacher, trainer and mentor. I help yoga teachers increase their confidence to get out and actually teach.
My mission is to help new yoga teachers share their unique message and offering. And it starts with gaining the confidence and skills to teach your very first class.

My Personal Story
In 2011, I earned a degree in Graphic Communications, with focus on digital design & production. Basically that is the fancy way to say “graphic design.” I was an athlete. I was highly driven and motivated.
I started practicing yoga during college and continued at home with DVDs. It changed my life.
In 2013 I attended my first yoga teacher training. I was hooked. I left my full-time job, sold my house and dove head first into the world of yoga teaching. I had dreams of becoming a super successful yoga teacher, perhaps even traveling the world. No one was going to stop me.
I was young. I was naive.
I thought it would be easy.
It was hard, yet so fulfilling. After 4 years of teaching 15-20 classes per week plus workshops and co-leading a couple yoga teacher trainings, I decided to start over.
I moved across the country and started from scratch. With a tiny, yet growing, online following and fabulous mentors in my back-pocket, I set out to build my online presence and re-build my community locally.
And then I became a mom.
I no longer had time or energy to teach 15+ classes a week. I knew that once I became a mom, I wanted to be home more with my babies. But I also want to continue doing what I love, which is teaching yoga.
While teaching at the local YMCA (hello, child care!) and a couple studio classes a week, I got back to work building my yoga business online. Now I help new yoga teachers with confidence to get out there and actually teach. Oh, and my next 200 hr YTT will be held Fall 2019 at the YMCA in Silverdale. More info to come.
