ABOUT ASHLEY

500 ERYT

CO-CREATOR | THE SCHOOL OF CONTEMPORARY YOGA

FOUNDER | CONTEMPORARY YOGA COLLECTIVE

YOGA IS SO MUCH MORE THAN THE SHAPES WE PUT OUR BODIES IN.

I found yoga as a teenager at a big health club. I took it as a personal challenge; to be able to get into poses I thought were once impossible.

This initial reason for practicing yoga morphed into much more as I began my own home practice. Without realizing it, I was diving deeper into the true reason yoga was created; to be a tool to achieve something much greater than the poses we practice in modern yoga today. To find peace within myself, for myself.

Yoga reminded me that my body is beautiful the way it is, and helped me peel off  the layers of negative body image, self-doubt, and emotional numbness to help me uncover my true self; a strong + capable person!

This ability to find the strength in yoga poses eventually made its way off of my mat & into my daily life of mom-ing (I have 3 beautiful little humans!), discovering other passions, and eventually led me to chasing my dreams in my yoga career.

I now lead teacher trainings in Utah at  The School of Contemporary Yoga

and

guide pop-up yoga experiences at the Contemporary Yoga Collective.

I aspire to bring the bright side of imperfection to yoga;

To teach and spread yoga in a way that brings more empowerment, accessiblity & FUN.

ABOUT MY WORK

HATHA YOGA

My teachers are world renowned Kathryn Budig and Gina Caputo who learned under Maty Ezraty and Shiva Rea.

CONTEMPORARY YOGA

Created by Ashley St. John and Whitney Raybould.

This unique style of yoga brings inspiration from traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa + combines it with methodologies for the modern day yogi.

It was created with the intent to provide something for everyone.

When coming to a Contemporary Yoga experience, the focus is on where you are in the present moment. Where other yoga styles may focus on aesthetics, Contemporary Yoga shifts the focus to intuitive movement for the ultimate mind, body, + emotion connection.

Thoughtfully structured classes, opportunities for free flow, and modern music is what weaves together a Contemporary Yoga experience in order for you to step into your empowerment.

Our mission when creating Contemporary Yoga was to offer a style of yoga to help guide others to connect to their worthiness

to practice, heal, + grow.

YOGA NIDRA

​Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation class, between 35 – 55 minutes long. Yoga Nidra translates to “yogic sleep”, and is a very restortative practice where you are guided through meditation by noticing different layers or “sheaths” of your being.

 

Through Yoga Nidra you are guided to explore your own thoughts and wisdom. This practice is truly meaningful to me, and I am so thrilled to be sharing it!

I learned under Yoga Nidra teacher Shannon McPhee (Supernova Yoga Nidra) who learned from the lineage that connects to Yoga Nidra creator Swami Satyananda. 

You can find me teaching pop-up Yoga Nidra at the Contemporary Yoga Collective in Centerville, UT which offers online/virtual access as well!
