Ashley recently completed our 200 hour yoga teacher training. She is teaching his first public class Saturday, July 30th at 3:00 pm. All proceeds will go to Amachi Pittsburgh.
Why did you decide to go through teacher training?
I love yoga, and it was already an integral part of my life and becoming a teacher felt like a natural progression.
What is your favorite pose and why?
Hard question! Physically, I really like Gorilla because it’s therapeutic for my back and my wrists, which are both spots that suffer because of my day job. Next level, heart openers (dancer, puppy pose) because total honesty and vulnerability is hard in daily life, so I like working it out on my mat.
What is your least favorite pose and why?
Warrior I – one of the first poses yogis learn, but I’m still beating myself up trying for that perfect alignment.
If you could offer one piece of advice for someone who was thinking about going through teacher training what would it be?
Go for it, I’m sure you’ll be great!
What is one thing you wish people knew about you before meeting you?
