Ashley Renee teaches breath-centered, strengthening yoga with an emphasis on alignment and intention in healing. Sessions with Ashley are balanced– uplifted by playfulness and rooted in mindfulness. In 2014, Ashley completed the 250 hour vinyasa program at Dhyana Yoga, and in 2016, completed Corina Benner’s yin yoga training at Wake Up Yoga. Ashley enjoys birding and being in nature, and regularly attends meditation retreats in Maryland with her mindfulness teacher, Tara Brach. She and yoga have been studying one another since 2010.
Cohbe Berkeley, Assistant 200 RYT
Cohbe enjoys the focus yet openness being on the yoga mat brings her. Her love with both the physical and mental benefits of an invigorating practice led her to complete her 200 hour Vinyasa Teacher Training at The Yoga Garden. Her curiosity on the mat continues to help her discover new ways to move her body. New to the team, she’s excited to share her love of yoga with all who come to the Banks!
