Ashley began practicing yoga as a broken down, life long runner. Knee pain with every step slowly subsided as she was introduced to the Iyengar method of yoga. Ashley has studied with Patricia Walden and Jarvis Chen since 2006, and became a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT) and Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) in 2017.
Ashley teaches weekly classes at MIT Medical and MIT School of Architecture + Planning.
BKS Iyengar quotes from Light on Life:
The Yoga Journey to Wholeness, Inner Peace, and Ultimate Freedom:
“Do not think of yourself as a small, compressed, suffering thing. Think of yourself as graceful and expanding, no matter how unlikely it may seem at the time.”
“It is through the alignment of my body that I discovered the alignment of my mind, self, and intelligence.”
