Founder Ashley Elsasser
Ashley has been practicing yoga for over 10 years (starting way back when she was a competitive dancer) and has been formally trained through CorePower Yoga, Samadhi Center for Yoga, & Tattvaa Yogashala in Rishikesh India. In her early years, Ashley used the knowledge of Buddhism and yoga to survive various emotional, mental and physical traumas that she had faced as a child and teenager. You will find that Ashley radiates light and happiness….She has attended various Tantra, Forest Yoga, Ashtanga, and Meditation workshops. In addition to yoga, Ashley has had a robust academic career studying International Relations and Latin American Development through the University of Denver. She has a strong knowledge of hatha yoga, various forms of meditation, yoga alignment, and pranayama (breath practice). Her practice has an Ashtanga base but uses a variety of other techniques derived from Iyengar, forest, and kundalini yoga. Ashley works closely with doctors, & other wellness professionals in order to provide a quality experience to all of her students - She leaves no question unanswered. Ashley emphasizes on proper alignment in EVERY one of her classes - If something isn't aligned properly, she'll fix it. Expect to learn how to breath, align yourself properly without the use of mirrors, and instead with intuition and self exploration through her guidance. She will push you BUT she will not break you.
