FREE COMMUNITY CLASSES
Our dynamic and gifted Teacher Trainees are half way through their 200 Hour certification program and are ready to try out some of their teaching skills. They will be offering FREE community classes (Beginning/Vinyasa Level) to Santosha Yoga students in November, December and January. They have covered a lot of ground and have so much to offer, but remember they are just learning to find their teaching style and voice. If they ask for feedback, let your positive words of encouragement help them grow!
Great Job TT's!!! The last community class was Monday. Graduation is coming up quickly. It's been a privilege to watch your skills develop.
Feature Teacher: Ashley Scott
Ashley’s first Yoga class was a pivotal moment in her life. Although she was not aware of it at the moment, it had set things into motion that would change her outlook on life forever. She holds those first few practices dear to her heart, and feels that spark reignite every time she teaches a class. Currently, she is teaching Beginning Vinyasa, and is honored to be able to see that same light turn on for each new Yogi as they step onto their mat. Her classes are very focused on proper alignment, and how to safely move the body in, and out of poses. She believes that working with rooted foundations, and regularly coming to your mat are the keys to growing a strong Yoga practice. Aside from teaching Ashley’s life off of her Yoga mat is a balance between her new family life, and fulfilling her creative endeavors. You may find her making her malas that she shares here at the studio, or enjoying the great outdoors near her new home at the entrance of the Gorge! She is looking forward to expanding her mala business to the internet, and starting to take special orders in the near future. She has many passions, and loves to talk with people, so stop in, take a class, and be sure to ask any questions you may have!
In the month to come Ashley will be focusing on the connection between breathing, and truly listening to the body. She wants her students (beginners, and advanced Yogis) to find that Yoga isn’t just about fitting the body into a “perfect pose”. Instead, that it ‘s about creating awareness in all aspects of our lives, and the breath is a wonderful tool to do so! Whether it is your first Yoga experience or your one millionth, come connect with your breath, and see where it may lead you!
Ashley has been a beloved part of the Santosha Yoga community for many years. She commutes a great distance to be here each Thursday evening for her 5:30 Beginning Vinyasa class and Katy and I feel honored that Santosha is the recipient of her teaching talent. Her smile will warm you, her practice will awaken you and her knowledge will inspire you. Ashley is a gem! ~ dina
