Ashley's first experience with Yoga was in college dance classes where her teachers often included Yoga in class. The first time she ever did Yoga in a dance class she could not stand it. She hated holding poses for so long, could not get her mind to shut up and the deep breathing made her dizzy… so she stayed clear of Yoga for a while. A couple years later, after graduating from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor’s in Dance, Ashley found herself taking a little break from performing. Wanting to keep up her strength and flexibility, she decided to try Yoga again. In November 2011 Ashley stepped into her first Yoga class… this time, falling in love. After two months she signed up for teacher training at Yoga Bliss in Baton Rouge, LA earning her RYT-200 in April 2012.
Ashley loves the mind body connection and how every thing can relate to Yoga. She fills her classes with themes and puts an emphasis on intentions guiding the practice in order to keep your mental focus and find a specific purpose for each practice. Due to her dance training she tends to keep her students moving but enjoys finding still points, especially in balance postures.
Ashley McCullough instructs the following:
Flow Level 2
This class is designed for students with some familiarity with yoga. The instructor will offer a variety of modifications to encourage participation of everyone. We do sitting, standing, and inverted postures, and suggest challenging variations for more advanced students, yet fun and non-intimidating options for those who need less of a challenge!
Mindful Movement for Tots (ages 3-4)
Mindful Tots will be guided through a series of fun and engaging yoga poses, stories and games. This engaging class will keep short attention spans focused. These tots will be having so much fun they won’t even realize they are working on coordination and balance. Mindful practices will tots manage their emotion and have fewer temper tantrums!
