Yoga Practice

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 with Patricia Walden, Jarvis Chen and Nancy Turnquist since 2006, and completed Patricia’s two-year teacher training program in 2015. 

Along with teaching classes at MIT Medical, Ashley assists in weekly classes with Jarvis Chen at Down Under Yoga Brookline.


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.”
