Ashley McKeachie is a registered yoga therapist and yoga instructor, who received her 200 hour teacher training through Core Power Yoga in Huntington Beach, California in 2011. She completed the four year 800 hour-clinical Yoga Therapy certification at Loyola Marymount University, in 2014.
Since 2012, she has been studying with Robert Birnberg and Amy Wheeler, who were certified by TKV Desikachar to train teachers in the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya.
Ashley currently teaches at Orange Coast College, and numerous types of group classes at Core Power Yoga, Dr. Duddey's SportsCare, and privately, including Hatha, Vinyasa, Power, Yin, Restorative, Chair, and Prime Of Life Yoga™.
Ashley began her yoga journey in January 2010, with a background of over twenty years of ballet, jazz, and modern dance. Upon returning to Southern California in 2008 after living in Italy for 10 years, she was diagnosed with thyroid disease. She went through two sessions of radioactive iodine to reduce the size of her overactive thyroid, which left her feeling lethargic, weak, unmotivated, and desperate for better overall health. Yoga completely changed Ashley, making her the strongest she has ever been, and continues to connect her mind, body, and breath. She brings encouragement, hands-on adjustments, visualization, the Yoga Sutras, and themes to her yoga classes.
Ashley's mission is to source the power of yoga; the mind, body, and spirit connection that creates joy, fluidity, freedom, and an overwhelming sense of safety and peace. Ashley believes that Yoga gives you the confidence to know and feel that everything is as it should be, and you are already perfect exactly the way you are.
