Ashley Curran has always been on the move. Born in Colorado, Ashley was a competitive figure skater for 10 years, a dancer and an avid skiier since the age of 3. Ashley began practicing yoga in 2001. She fell in love with the practice and discovered that she wanted to share this passion with others. Ashley Curran has been teaching yoga since 2002. Ashley received her hatha yoga training through Axis Yoga Teacher Trainings. In 2008 she took pre-natal training at Shoshoni Mountain School.

She learned how to teach and modify yoga for people with disabilities (spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, MS, degenerative back disease etc). This training really changed Ashley’s life.

She has studied with many great teachers such as Rodney Yee, Seane Corne, Shiva Rhea, Rod Stryker, Tias Little, Judith Hansen Lasater, Ana Forrest, Matthew Sanford & Richard Freeman. She has assisted Matthew Sanford in Denver. Some local favorites are: Karen Lerner, Mark Sisun, Beth Sanchez, Rochelle Townsend & Jeremy Wolf.

Ashley strives to guide her students to have their own spiritual experience with yoga. Ashley is the mother of two wonderful children, Caroline and Jack and finds herself practicing yoga off the mat everyday while raising her family.
