Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
The first time I ever stepped onto a Manduka mat I truly felt supported in my practice. Like someone was there with me guiding me through each and every pose. This is true for both their products and the company. I never get off of the phone with the company wondering if my needs were met. I feel supported as a wholesale buyer, a customer, and as a person. Thank you Manduka!
Huntington Beach, CA
Why Manduka?: I can’t always make it onto a yoga mat to practice, but when I do, it’s on Manduka.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice wherever the wind may blow me; from coast to coast, Costa Rica to Venezuela, sea shore to mountain top, it allows me to find my Self no matter where I am.
Yoga Style: Ashtanga
Ashlee has had a love affair with Ashtanga yoga from the very beginning. Having explored various forms of yoga, including Vinyasa Flow, Dharma Vinyasa Yoga, Kundalini and others, Ashtanga has always been the place to which she returns. It’s like coming home to familiar territory; and while the basic structure is always the same, there are always new twists and turns to discover, new experiences and challenges to uncover—new ways to take the practice even deeper. It has taught her more about her physical and mental capabilities than she ever thought possible. She has learned greater patience, respect, and love—for herself and others. And it is the love and wisdom of this practice she offers to anyone interested in opening their body and mind.
Ashlee has studied Ashtanga yoga with David Swenson, David Williams, Manju Jois, and Melanie Fawer, among others. She has both her E-RYT 200 and RYT-500 hour certifications from the Yoga Alliance. She teaches Ashtanga and Ashtanga-based classes at several Orange County yoga studios.
