About Ashley

Ashley Niccole, E-RYT 200

 I have been a full-time yoga instructor, E-RYT 200, for four years now and have been practicing yoga for eleven. I’ve learned from many skilled yogis in the area who vary from having Ph.D.’s in anatomy to those who have traveled to India to learn under yoga masters. I received my certification to teach yoga from Dragonfly Yoga and Wellness in the Bay Area and received an intensive Teacher Training that thoroughly prepared me to teach yoga full time. 


I teach a variety of yoga classes to multiple students from all walks of life. I have taught multiple veterans and even worked with gymnasts, seniors, amputees, rock climbers, professional football players, MMA fighters, stay at home moms, complete beginners, and advanced students. 

My classes help each individual focus on their own practice instead of their ego, releasing any sense of competition or feeling of not being good enough. I always offer modifications throughout my classes, and I always stress to not push your body past what feels good.


I strongly believe that yoga can help each individual in some way, as it benefits the mind, body, and spirit. Stress-related diseases are on the rise now more than ever which is why yoga and meditation have become so important for us to practice. 

 

About The Classes

Each yoga class that I offer online is suitable for all levels unless otherwise specified. Each week, I will be adding one new yoga video with the exception of my own personal holidays. I have around 35 classes on my site and I offer an array of Vinyasa Flow yoga classes as well as Yin yoga classes.  The classes vary in time, but the average class on my site is around thirty minutes long.

Vinyasa Flow is a type of yoga that is generally fast-paced and vigorous while syncing breath with movement. It is a great way to exercise the body, build strength, flexibility, and relieve stress. 

Yin yoga is quite slow and we focus mainly on relaxing and stretching, holding gentle yoga poses for up to one to five minutes. This helps to release fascial tension throughout the body while building flexibility and calming the mind.

I would recommend buying a yoga mat, a yoga strap, two yoga blocks, and a bolster for practicing at home. You could also use a belt to substitute a strap, a thick pillow to substitute a bolster, or a Mexican blanket in lieu of a yoga blanket. When practicing, it's usually best to be barefoot and wear tight fitted, comfortable clothing. Make sure yoga is right for you by your healthcare provider.
