Ashley Yono

Hi, my name is Ashley Yono.
I found yoga in 2014, when I happened to stumble upon a deal I found online. I thought I would just try it and see what happened, expecting another workout class I would not be good at, but I wanted to give it a shot. Sitting down for my first class, I never would have known then that my life would be forever impacted by this practice. I have always struggled with body issues and the ability to find love for myself. This practice has helped me immensely to overcome those challenges and find appreciation for my body. Yoga has been an amazing tool to help me on the road to self-trust. I wanted to spread the love that I found in my classes with others as well - that is when I started my yoga teacher training in 2016. I started teaching as soon as I graduated! I want people to be able to show up for themselves and to find that safe space on the mat. Yoga does not care what you look like, no matter your shape, size, race, sexuality, or gender. As long as you can breathe, you can join in this beautiful practice. See you on the mat!


Ashley Yono instructs the following:
  • Shelter Strong (vinyasa)
  • Our signature hot vinyasa style, in a heated room. Have fun and empower yourself as you burn away the stress of the day. Prepare to sweat and increase both stamina and metabolism, as STRONG is a challenging, dynamic cardio-intensive practice at a faster pace. Sequences of continuous “flows” provide the opportunity to deepen breathing and detoxify body and mind as heat builds from within. Intelligent pose progression moves from basic to complex as we connect the movement to breath. Cues to maintain focus on alignment and sound structure to help work every muscle safely, increase flexibility and strength in the body. Students are led through a series of postures that “flow” together for a couple of rounds, then freedom is given to move and define your own pace, testing your own limits as you make your practice your own. Find your power, explore your edge and still have a little time to rest.

  • Shelter Steady (slow flow)
  • Our slow-burn hatha style is a fully guided foundation-building slow grounded flow.Most forms of yoga in the West can be classified as Hatha Yoga. Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. Focused on going deeper into the breath, you are encouraged to keep your eyes closed on this inward journey, enhancing the ability to pay attention to feelings, and relax into your body even in periods of discomfort. Working to build endurance, we explore the balance of effort and ease using slower, cumulatively deeper pose sequences with longer holds designed to engage and strengthen not only the major muscle groups but to functionally integrate the entire body. In this slower yet challenging practice, within the boundaries and framework of personal individual expression, "everybody" is presented the opportunity to articulate both breath and posture. A longer Savasana rests and restores body and the mind.
