Yogi Of The Week: Ashley

Meet Ashley.

Ashley was teaching her regular vinyasa class and demonstrating Cobra pose. But at 8 months pregnant, there are some poses the body (well, mostly just the belly) won't do in the traditional sense. Ashley had this realization about a moment after it was too late to do anything about it. She went from Cobra to Nobra, tipping over uncontrollably in front of the whole class. Instead of getting upset, she immediately burst into laughter, and her whole class laughed as well.

That's when she knew her yoga practice wasn't going to be about "advanced" asana anymore. She let it go, making room for the new chapter in her life and the little miracle growing in her belly that would change it forever.

Ashley's yoga has come into a whole new journey deep in the mind, paying close attention to her thoughts and focus. She now feels more love and respect for her body and chooses to dedicate every practice to her growing family.

We loved learning about Ashley! And we can’t wait to learn about you. Tell us about yourself on our You Series page, at Manduka.com/You.
