Ash began her Yoga journey in 2007, finding a calm in the midst of the academic storm that was university! She was struck immediately by the meditative nature of the practice; fusing her loves of philosophy, poetry and freeflowing movement.
Since then, Ash has had the opportunity to study and teach yoga internationally. She has studied Yoga in the ashrams of India and the temples of Indonesia, taught in China and Malaysia and explored the Sacred Dance of Thai Massage in the Northern Thai jungle as well as amongst her mentors in Europe. Focussing on the contrasting practices of Ashtanga, Yin and Vinyasa yoga recently, Ash has discovered the beautiful dance of AcroYoga, a partner practice grounded in trust and community. A former outdoor guide, Ash loves to infuse her AcroYoga classes with games and laughter, as well as guiding her students through a gentle exploration of the lunar side of the practice. Ash has had the privilege of studying with some of the world’s leading teachers: Jason Nemer (the founder of AcroYoga), Simon Park and Danny Paradise among others.
Ash’s classes aim to awaken an awareness within her students, that only begins in the body and on the mat and slowly moves to expand outside the individual level. Having recently returned from her second teaching tour of the West Bank with her friends and co-teachers AcroYogis Bex Tyrer and Kathy Gade, Ash’s classes are guided by spiritual activism to wake up and challenge ourselves!
Ash now teaches 10 playful and dynamic classes a week in Bristol, a combination of the many styles that she enjoys as well as running Thai Massage and AcroYoga workshops in the South West and occasionally returning to her native Oxford to give lectures on the basics of Yoga philosophy.
