Initially a power yoga instructor, I've shifted gears toward gentler practices that support nervous system resilience and trauma healing. I still love a sweaty vinyasa class, and (not but) my experiences and interests have led me to yin, breathwork, slow flow, subtle yoga, and Yoga Nidra.
Slower moving practices might need more time on the stage to be seen and understood as undemanding and effective options, 'cause moving tenderly and kindly with ourselves takes us out of the hamster wheel of modern life and goes against what we're taught to value in our society.
While these practices have supported me in moving away from long worn pathways of ongoing hustle and burnout, you know what's best for you and your body. It's my wish to share these practices and advocate for you making your own decisions about what will serve you best from day to day and season to season.
Ashley, Kevin, Miles Dog, and all our plants are moving to Athens, Ohio by summer 2023! Kevin got a Recreation Management position on the Wayne National Forest, and we're so excited to explore a new landscape (hardwood forests, caves, and waterfalls in the Appalachian foothills) as well as a larger community with restaurants, live music, and aesthetically pleasing streets.
After living in John Day, Oregon for as long as we have, every little upcoming convenience seems absolutely thrilling. Friday night salsa lessons? Thai food? Sushi? Yes, please!
