Ashley is originally from Charlotte, NC and has 250 hours as a Registered Yoga Teacher and is also a Reiki Master. Reiki is an ancient healing art that clears stagnant energy or blocked qi from the body to amplify the flow of Prana (life force energy) in the physical bodies to increase overall health and inner balance. She trained in Costa Rica and it paved the way for her practice with an emphasis on creative vinyasa sequencing, chakras, energy work, and philosophical aspects of the yogic practice. She is in the health and fitness industry because she truly believes the wellbeing of mind, body, and spirit are all connected and wants to help others expand their bodies, their minds, and awareness to new dimensions. When she first stepped foot into HYLO she had an intuition that this was the next step in her journey – “the energy at the studio is unparalleled & the team is comprised of a truly special group of people who all want to create a positive impact.” When not practicing yoga, you can find her walking on the beach with her dog, Klaus, or reading outdoors or in a fun coffee shop!
