Want to know the secret to a happy life?

Love and Let Go 

Over time, I have learned that almost all of our struggles (frustrations, anxiety, sadness, grief, anger, and worry) stem from the same thing: being too attached to something. Holding onto something that was never ours to keep in the first place is the greatest cause of our suffering. Look around you, everything is fleeting; every moment, every meal, every experience. All our lives are built on moments that aren’t ours to keep. Clinging to things we love only causes us deeper sorrow. Learning to love, madly and deeply in each moment, and then let it go, is the ultimate secret to a happy live.

Letting go. Let the magic unfold around you. After all, life is a balance of making things happen and letting things happen. We can't control everything - no, but we can control how we react to everything. And this is where the magic really begins. This is where we step into our power and take control of our happiness. Because it it is our responsibility to make ourselves happy- no one else's. 

The sooner you take responsibility for your happiness, the sooner you'll start living your life by design - not default.

Now is a really good time to start.

Spend 6 days learning to implement this beautiful practice in the majestic rainforest of Belize! Practice yoga + meditation daily or twice daily, swim in both the natural pools and waterfalls of the jungle, hike the rainforest, go zip-lining, rappel down waterfalls, peruse the Mayan ruins, explore caves on foot or floating in a tube; or simply skip the activity scene all together and enjoy a week of reading your favourite book.

“I was drawn to teach yoga by the sense of connection and gratitude I felt in my own practice. To me, yoga is an ongoing relationship that is built between mind, body and breath. I share my experiences and knowledge with others by offering a welcoming space to soften, become present, and explore. I encourage a spirit of playfulness and provide a dose of inspiration in my classes.

Yoga is a personal practice that is different for each person. I offer classes that are accessible to everyone and provide hands on adjustments to help you understand and deepen your practice. I focus on exploration rather than destination. My foremost goal is to share the practice in a way that is accessible to all; to meet people where they are, as they are.”

Ashley grew up in Golden, BC and currently resides in Vancouver. She received her 200-hr YTT in Bali in 2014 and has been sharing her passion for yoga within her community ever since.
