Ashley knows instantly what is needed on an individual basis as well as for the yoga group as a whole. Her compassion, knowledge and enthusiasm is completely inspiring and I am looking forward to working with her on a more personal basis beginning in the fall. With Ashley's guidance, her services will be a lifestyle change for me.

I remember attending yoga with Ashley for the first time and never have I felt such a genuine connection to a yoga teacher. It’s almost like finding a perfect therapist. I remember my first full moon circle with Ashley and I was moved to tears from such a huge mental and emotional release. Her knowledge of astrology and emotional guidance has helped to bring so much balance and extreme peace into my life. She is so talented at creating a safe space. Even whilst being in a room full of strangers during full moon circles, I feel so comfortable speaking my mind and sharing my feelings. She exudes an energy of safety that calms everyone to a point where they feel loved and appreciated, and, as a result, renewed and rested upon leaving. Her voice is so lovely, I always look forward to her vocals in yoga and meditation.

I absolutely love Ashley's classes. I have OCD, and she was my first teacher as I started conquering my fear. I call her a unicorn in human form. She has such a beautiful energy. . .it flows off of her and is so calming. She was meant to do what she is doing. A true healer.



It was a sincere pleasure working with Ashley. My life had become extremely stressful and realized I needed to prioritize self-care with a private yoga session. I selected a natal chart reading, Ayurveda consult, yogassage, and tarot reading from Ashley's "offerings". These combined experiences rejuvenated my energy and resulted in a renewed sense of emotional balance. Ashley is a kind, talented, and sensitive healer. I would highly recommend you treat yourself to these transformative experiences. Thank you, Ashley, for restoring my spirit.

Ashley was warm and welcoming and has such a peaceful energy. I took my first (ever) yoga class this week and look forward to many more at Ride the Wave.

-Laura W.

I was so excited to try Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep. I still have yoga nidra buzz the day after... floating on a cloud and from all the journaling/meditation! I feel so great right now thanks to the incredibly perfect experience Ashley curated! 

-Karla Anne

Yogassage with Ashley is like restorative yoga, savasana and deep tissue massage all rolled into one rejuvenating session. I highly recommend it!  I wanted to try it because I have very tense muscles and limited range of motion in my shoulders. Ashley was able to both stretch and massage the various muscle groups to get them to relax and improve my range of motion. She uses her body to assist the stretch in some poses which really gets the muscles to relax. It hurts so good! I felt so much better after just one session that I would go see her weekly if I could.

Ashley gives you what you need at the end of the day. She is easy to follow and has great cues. I once had a kink in my neck that was gone at the end of practice.

                                                                                           -Kelly T.

Ashley's voice is lyrical.  She has a gift to teach and she has stepped into her true calling.

                                                                                          -Sara B.

Ashley has a beautiful presence in front of her classes, and she teaches from her heart.  Her ability to cue a pose allows the student to move with ease, and variations are offered for those with challenges, which is so refreshing and necessary.  I find my spirit as well as my body nourished in each one of Ashley's classes.

                                                                                        -Mary H.

Ashley leads her yoga students through a meditative yoga flow that is soothing for the mind and strengthening for the body.  Her love of yoga is contagious.

Ashley teaches from the heart.  Her warm smile and soothing voice throughout class guides me to find a steady breath and comb through tension and stress.  I leave feeling rejuvenated and ready to face the day.

My astrology reading was everything I’d hoped it would be and so much more. Ashley has the patience of a saint, and the wisdom of a soul that has journeyed through this universe for a long time. I was so enchanted by all of the relevant information that came through in the reading, and how easy it was to see and make so many connections with different aspects of my life. I really loved the way Ashley took the time to listen and guide me through any questions I had. This reading was absolutely spectacular and I highly recommend the experience!

That was a great full moon circle tonight. It is so obvious the planning that goes into them.  I love when you mentioned "inner wealth."  My kids are in their 20s and we have had big discussions about this lately as they ponder following their "bliss" vs. checkbook.  It helps us senior citizens to know, too, that inner wealth is what counts. Thanks for the inspiring evening.


I recently had an astrology reading done by Ashley and I HIGHLY recommend it. She was able to breakdown my birth chart and give me clarity on what my current year has in store for me. I left with a calm and clear mind, and excited for my current phase of life and the future!

-Kaley T.

After listening again to my session via recording, I was almost moved to tears. I cannot tell you DEAD ON my natal chart reading was. I see my Saturn Return as a super pivotal point and feel so blessed to be open to what the Universe has in store. This session with Ashley was a gift I will treasure forever! 



I am still learning things from the astrology reading Ashley did for me. Ashley is very intuitive and thoughtful and used my natal chart to show me how to learn from my experiences and develop my strengths. She is encouraging and supportive and, above all, a very caring person.


-Marlene P.

What a great experience! The studio is comfortable, intimate and has a great vibe. I had an astrology reading and yogassage special session and it was remarkable! Ashley has great intuition, healing hands and a beautiful spirit. I also got a recording of our astrology session which was pretty cool too... so worth it!

-Bill C.

I first met Ashley at a yoga retreat where she led yoga and meditation classes as well as provided astrology readings. Since that retreat, I’ve seen her for yoga classes, astrology readings, full moon meditations and yogassage.


Each time I'm surprised at how my reading matches up with either something I've experienced or had been planning on doing. I love that Ashley doesn't consider a reading to be a rigid map that must be followed but more like an outline of things to look for or be aware of in my life. The readings help me look at things with a different perspective which help to clarify situations and decisions.


Ashley has an incredible positive energy and enthusiasm for life that is infectious. She has made such an impact on my life in the year that I've known her and I look forward to learning even more from her in the future. 

                                                                                          -Alicia P.

I have wanted to have my astrological chart read for years. Until Ashley received her certification, I didn't know anyone who I could ask- never mind someone I could trust.  Ashley's reading of my chart couldn't have been more professional. She thoroughly researched each of my houses, and provided detailed information about them. Her reading began with an overview; I appreciated this approach because I personally like to see the "big picture" in signs in my life. She did not avoid the less positive aspects of my chart and their affect on my personality. Instead, she explained them objectively and without judgement, allowing me to see them as things I should be aware of and guide. Ashley wisely made no predictions about my future, leaving room for me to take the information and use it to inform me about possible paths for the future.  My session with Ashley was uplifting and empowering. She has a gift for deep intuitive understanding of others and the compassion to make them feel unique and worthwhile. I am deeply grateful that I was able to share her wisdom.


I had my reading with Ashley at her beautiful studio. The minute I sat down with Ashley, she put my nerves at ease. I did not know much about astrology before my sessions, but I left with a much better understanding of how certain aspects of my chart have influenced my life. She delivered all the information in a clear manner with terrific explanations. Having my natal chart read allowed me to understand why I act and respond to things in certain ways. It gave me a better understanding of myself as a person. I was just fascinated with the information, and it allowed me to take a step back and reflect on my future. If you would like a better understanding of yourself and your personality, I highly recommend contacting Ashley for a session.
