Ashley Rydeen was first introduced to yoga by her sister 2 years ago and quickly fell in love with the practice. She was drawn to the mindful, healing spirit of yoga while always maintaining a "Let's play!" attitude. She graduated from from FlyDog Yoga's 200 hour Power Vinyasa Program in 2017 studying under Eliza Whiteman and MaryAnn McIvor. Her flows encourage students to focus on cultivating strength, stability and balance while bringing awareness to the breath and alignment. During Ashley's class, you will be led and supported through fun, creative flows often incorporating arm balances or inversions and will be encouraged to play and explore your practice and your potential for growth.
Ashley R. instructs the following:
A yin yoga practice sequences longer holds in quiet stillness with an intention to relax the muscles, opening the flow of energy through the deeper connective tissue, releasing broader range of motion in the joints of the body. Promoting a meditative awareness of breath and energy, this calm practice reveals acceptance within the present condition of the physical, emotional, and conscious layers of our being. This is an approachable class for beginners, athletes, and suitable for all backgrounds of yoga experience.
