Inspired by an Indian philosophy class in college and the ocean’s teaching that, like the wave, change is the only constant, Ashley formally began teaching yoga and meditation in 2011. The moon became a comforting presence when her Sagittarian spirit found herself feeling far away from her home on Plum Island, MA. Ashley became a Certified Alchemical Astrologer in 2017 to help her understand this hidden yet deeply felt connection.
Ashley holds over 1,000 hours of yoga teaching experience, as well as a Kripalu-based 200-hour certification, 100 hours of study in Bhakti yoga and Kirtan, and 112 hours of apprenticeship in Foundations of Ayurveda under Dr. Mouleeswaran, M.D., PhD (AYU). Ashley's two trips to India since 2018 have given her a unique lens through which she works with others to help bring balance between an eastern and western approach to living life.
Ashley weaves the inspiration from her teachers, including Tara Brach, Danna Faulds and Alanna Kaivalya, with the ancient wisdom of the stars and Ayurveda into her yoga classes, international and local retreats, and private work.

Kerri holds her 200 hour certification through Well Heart Yoga in Maine and is currently working toward earning her prenatal credential through Rooted Boston and Coolidge Yoga.
In 2010 this lifelong athlete was recommended by her orthopedic to “stretch,” which is when she found yoga— but really much more. She began to slow down, become more patient, aware, present and mindful.

Kerri's style of teaching emphasizes strength, breath connection, and mindfulness. Her hope is that students will walk away not only feeling better physically, mentally, and emotionally, but inspired to transfer that energy into their approach to daily life.
