Online Via Zoom
With Guided Instructions, Adjustments and Modifications
3 In-studio spots available for local registrants (Covid-bylaws permitting)
A commitment to self-care and self-nurturing: are you ready for that? Do you want to be held in a loving space with care and guidance? I am a trauma-informed Yoga Instructor and my yoga classes are highly tuned to allow for self-connection and awareness. Come join us: relieve tension, release blocked energy, and stretch out those over-used and tight muscles and ligaments. It's time. This class is designed for a range of beginners; advanced sequences and poses will not be explored, but you will still be challenged with love and encouragement.
One of the reasons that registered yoga and fitness programs work is that we make a commitment.
Hi, my name is Ashley Anjlien Kumar.
People have come up to me and said "Ashley I tried doing yoga classes here but the instructors are doing all these Sun Salutations right in the first lesson! My body isn't ready for that right now. Can you teach me in a way that allows my body to develop strength and flexibility that is right for me?"
I understand you! Yoga is for every BODY, not just the super-fit.
People have become scared to go to Yoga classes because there is fear they won't be able to keep up with the instructor; the poses aren't meeting them where they are at...
Maybe you're like me in that after kids, you just didn't have the freedom of time for stretching and self-care. Repetitive functional motions of child-care and work demands have taken a toll on your body. Perhaps, you found yourself getting sore, achy and losing the range of mobility you desire. All the challenges in life we face can take a toll on our nervous system. So, I hear you. I see you. I understand.
This beginner Yoga challenge is great for you to gently bring you the truth of Yoga; it's not about bending your body to meet the pose - it's about honoring ourselves and adjusting the pose to fit our body as it is today.
45 consecutive days

“I feel full of deep gratitude at the end of this [Restorative Yoga] class. I’ve come through a recent period of intense loss and grief and Ashley’s gentle, invitational guidance touched my stressed, overwhelmed body and emotions in healing ways. Her voice and touch are soothing and she is solicitous about arranging supports. Thank you so much for the “I am Enough” and ‘Be’ more, ‘Do’ less advice. Keep going deep into your compassionate being Ashley. You are a soulful, lovely teacher.” – Jannie Edwards
“The class was extremely relaxing – great ambiance and setting *loved the touch aspect*. Ashley’s voice is calm and soothing. Modifications were offered (pregnancy) and help with body positioning. The meditation was helpful to calm and relax.” – Ellena Kupka
“Ashley was very calming in her approach – her instruction, her voice. The additional props she placed helped reduce tension I didn’t realize I was holding. She created a safe and relaxing experience. The room was calm, and I enjoyed the small group of people.” – Shari Youb
"I really enjoyed the pace of the class and that it was challenging but easy enough to follow with modifications for those who are less experienced. I am an avid hot yoga practitioner, i have been practicing 3-5 days a week for the past 5 years, but have recently taken a break as i am expecting my first baby and was advised to take it easy at least until past my first trimester. So at your class i was a bit rusty since its been about 2 months now since i've been on my mat. I loved the music and the essential oils was a great touch. Overall coming out of the event i felt great and positive." - Abby T. (Yoga Client)
