RAW, REAL AND UNAPOLOGETICALLY HER. Ashley is a student and observer of the beautiful experience called life. Sharing universal wisdom, love, and compassion with a Lil bit of wild fun. She grew up in British Columbia's interior, riding bikes down river trails, exploring acres of wild desert land, and playing every sport you can imagine. Moving to Vancouver at 20, she soon discovered yoga and the practice's benefits that complimented her sport. Since then, Ashley’s been growing her movement practice as a student, qualified teacher and shares each experience brimming with integrity. Her experience teaching has also given her deep insights into the benefits of rest, rest, and more rest. It is important to work hard, yet more important, to rest even harder.
Ashley has travelled all over the world, experiencing many different cultures and ways of life. She spent many years exploring different angles she could take to create harmony within her career and purpose. Movement has always been her tool to stay centred and unstuck through times of uncertainty and the unknown. Ashley is passionate about living, breathing the elements, and feels the teachings of nature are a blessing. When we look at nature with love, love will look back.
Ashley is a certified YOGA, MOVEMENT, and HOLISTIC BODYWORK practitioner and a 1st-degree BLACK BELT in TAEKWONDO. Ashley is the kind of teacher who imparts her wonderful spark for life and well-being in her teaching. Her style pulls from multiple disciplines and is both intuitive and steeped in philosophy. Her classes focus on alignment and the interconnectedness between mind, body, and spirit to encourage a safe and transformational environment. Her infectious laugh and positive energy are two of her most recognizable traits. It's hard not to leave her presence without a warm heart and a smile on your face.
Ashley is currently the co-founder of a new state-of-the-art yoga and movement facility in Vancouver called MOOV, where she also teaches and offers several different movement-based practices, including my most recent addition in Holistic Bodywork and soon, Wellness Counselling Diploma.
"I spent the past few years building the studio alongside my two partners and
my private bodywork practice. When covid hit, we decided to take a pause and not go through with our grand opening. I then started “ WILD WOO the Podcast’ as a place for people to connect, feel included and share taboo stories. As you can see, everything I do is to better myself and other humans holistically as we remember to keep
having fun. There is a duality within wellness that I feel is important to foster and that is the focus and the fun." - Ashley
