     Ashley is a yoga teacher, an adventurer, an entrepreneur and an avid consumer of red wine. Her life path has been based on listening to feelings and intuition, and letting them guide her path. The first time she majorly listened to her intuition, was at the age of 19, travelling to Brazil to train to become a yoga teacher.   She completed her 500 hour YTT and has been teaching and learning ever since. Originally teaching Moksha Yoga, her teaching style has developed over the years. Today she is a firm believer in slowing down. Her classes are rooted in moving slow and doing less, better. Music is purposefully weaved into her classes, and hands on adjustments are abundant.   Ashley has been working with Ally Maz for the past four years, developing  Girlvana Yoga 's teachers across the globe. She started  Feelosophy Yoga  two years ago, a style of yoga that combines restorative yoga with hands-on touch and massage. Ashley has since taught Feelosophy across Canada, leading retreats, and facilitating countless workshops and classes.  Ashley has taught for TED Conference, lululemon, Patagonia, Arc'teryx and Wanderlust. When she is not teaching you can find her on an airplane off to her next adventure, swimming in the ocean, or have a few glasses of wine with her friends.

     Alex Mazerolle aka Ally Maz is yoga teacher, speaker and entrepreneur. She began teaching 10 years ago in Vancouver, BC, studying in traditional hatha yoga, had a stint with hot yoga and Pilates and ultimately felt the call with the dynamic practice of Anusara Yoga. She spent years travelling and studying with senior teachers of the methodology spending countless hours immersing herself in both the deep philosophy and biomechanics. Currently blending many styles and drawing from her past as a dancer, Alex teaches a fluid style of Vinyasa that incorporates deep messaging, intelligent sequences and incorporates the power of music.   Four years later she went on to create her first company  Girlvana Yoga  which offers retreats, classes and workshops for teen girls through mentorship, meditation and yoga. Since then, Girlvana has grown into a global movement with over 100 teachers worldwide, 10 retreats and a current book deal with Penguin Random House, due out 2018. She also leads  Ladyvana ; the grown up version for women, to explore themselves through yoga, nature and raw conversation.    Alex then started  Distrikt Movement  with Jian Pablico. A yoga, fitness and community-hub, geared toward young people who saw no boundaries around their movement practices. The Distrikt was first to market in the way they blended movement styles and the way they used their space. Art galleries, dance parties, speakers series, retreats, DJ'd classes, after school programs for teens; The Distrikt served as a hub for creativity, innovation and community for over five years.   Alex has taught & facilitated for the Vancouver Canucks, Wanderlust Festival, Vice, lululemon, Do Lectures, the LA Dodgers and many more. She currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.    [ MICHELLE JOHNSON - SKILL IN ACTION AUTHOR - GUEST TRAINER]       

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     Michelle Cassandra Johnson is a social justice activist, an anti-racism trainer, an empathic and intuitive yoga teacher, as well as the author of Skill in Action. Skill in Action has made a massive impact on both Ashley and Alex's teaching as it clearly defines power and privilege, oppression, liberation and suffering, and invites readers to take steps to make changes in their lives to create a world that allows all of us to be free. We are deeply honoured to have Michelle's point of view and deep wisdom in Panama this year.   In her own words,   "I have a deep understanding of how trauma impacts the mind, body, spirit and heart. My awareness of the world through my experience as a black woman allows me to know, first hand how privilege and power operate. I understand the toll that oppression can take on individuals and the collective physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.I am a social justice warrior, empath, yoga teacher and practitioner and an intuitive healer. Whether in an anti-oppression training, yoga space, individual or group intuitive healing session, healing and wholeness are at the center of how I approach all of my work in the world.   I've spent many years on the front lines of justice movements craving a space for healing through ritual, ceremony and sacred practice. While working in many non-profits with missions focused on justice I didn't find a space that centered healing as a tool to create justice. So, I created my own space and way of working.I create healing spaces in many different ways working with individuals and groups. I lead anti-racism trainings, yoga workshops focused on the intersection of justice and yoga and I offer intuitive healing sessions to support social justice workers, healers and activists who are on the front lines and struggling with how to sustain themselves as they do their good work in the world."

      Meet MONICA:   Monica’s passion in life is to teach. She holds an M.A. in Elementary education and spent more  than 15 years teaching elementary students, facilitating professional development workshops, and mentoring teachers and administrators in various school districts around the country. She began her yoga practice nearly 25 years ago as a means to calm stress during the daily rigors as a graduate student, which in turn led her to crave a deeper understanding of how the human body works.  Her love of yoga and movement as a desire for continued education led her to Kerala, India where she completed in an advanced training in the Tantric lineage. As an experienced teacher, with 2000+ hours of continuing education in human movement, and as a life-long student she commits to traveling across country to train exclusively with master teachers in the industries of yoga, biomechanics, functional movement, pain science and physiotherapy.  Monica is a movement educator, Reiki practitioner and Certified Yoga Tune Up® Instructor and continues to study directly with the creator of YTU®, Jill Miller. One of Monica’s top priorities is to teach students how to move effectively and intelligently, which varies from body to body. Without question, Monica has a passion for the human body and understands the human form on a considerably deeper level. Her intention is to awaken the importance of body awareness, optimal postural alignment, and functional movement patterns with every student she meets.   Monica is dedicated to leading teacher trainings, hosting international yoga retreats and facilitating movement workshops and her overall objective is educating clients about their bodies.

     A yoga teacher, world traveler and business owner,  Laurel Van Matre brings her authenticity, sense of humor and the wisdom gleaned from her lifelong wellness journey to GYPSET Yoga Retreats.  Laurel spent years traveling through Europe and Asia before starting her own garden design business. Soon, she began practicing yoga as a student. Then she began teaching classes, and has since become teacher of teachers in her Northeast Minneapolis yoga studio, YOGA Garden.  Her experience has given her the ability to meet the student where they are in their practice, helping them find a way to access poses that elude them, whether they are beginners or advanced. While many people think of yoga is as meditative, making it fun is equally important to her.  As her yoga practice evolved, Laurel began sharing her experience with corporate clients as a motivational speaker and strategic consultant. Using themes from yoga, she helps people improve themselves both personally and professionally. She recently sold her garden design business to focus on her passion for yoga and innovation.  Laurel is a gardener, a cyclist and enjoys good wine and good food. When she’s not traveling the world teaching GYPSET Yoga Retreats she teaches out of her studio in NE Minneapolis, YOGA Garden.   Style:  alignment-based vinyasa flow, nidra, restorative and individual coaching  Inspiration:  gardening, sunshine, the ocean, traveling the world and listening to people’s stories, meeting new people, her family and an appreciation for moving through the world as an individual and how we all do that while at the same time together as a group.

     Melissa Joy Schoeller co-founded GYPSET Yoga after five years of guest teaching yoga classes at a dozen tropical resorts around the world.  As a guest teacher, she quickly saw that travel gave people the opportunity open themselves. Yoga and wellness elevated a vacation into a transformative experience, and to appreciate the beauty within all things from a centered and grounded perspective. After organizing several retreats on her own for seven years, the word of mouth from students inspired her to start Gypset Yoga with Laurel Van Matre.  A consummate entrepreneur, Melissa started her first business at the age of 7, making and selling rock people (yes, people made of rocks). She has founded multiple successful businesses, including a spin/yoga studio and a boutique gift store. Both are still going strong.  Melissa has taught yoga in a variety of non-traditional settings, including music festivals, brewpubs and corporate on-site. Beyond her passion for yoga and travel, she is a former mountain bike racer and renowned for her playlists.   Style:  vinyasa flow, yin, nidra, meditation, barre, spinning & private training.  Inspiration:  music, nature, travel, ritual, pause, connection & authenticity.

      Deby Curcio,  E-RYT 500 hr:  During a healing crisis, Deby was introduced to Yoga. A nurturer at heart, Deby decided that she needed to share what great things Yoga had done for her so she did her first of many Yoga Teacher trainings in 2005. Deby has practiced Yoga for nearly 20 years and been teaching for almost 15 years. She is certified in Hatha, The Barkan Method of Hot Yoga, Mark Stephens Vinyasa, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Sculpt, Barre and The Yoga Wall. Deby is an E-RYT 500 HR teacher as well as YACEP Certified (Yoga Alliance Certified Continuing Education Provider) and the studio is a Registered Yoga School with Yoga Alliance. As a studio owner she has hosted a Teacher Training program, Continuing Education Workshops and yearly retreats. She will always continue to further her education and knowledge of the human body to be able to teach safe and effective classes. She likes to incorporate sound healing with the use of singing bowls, frequencies tools and bells – this is especially effective in Restorative Yoga classes. She loves teaching meditation, mudra and mantra techniques as it only enhances the physical part of Yoga.  Through the years and exploration of so many forms of Yoga she has found that she weaves what is best for her; body, mind and soul, from various teachers, trainings, philosophies and styles. She will always intuitively share with her students what she feels they will get the most benefit from in her classes. Expect to have fun, be nurtured, loved, and encompassed with her knowledge and passion for all aspects of Yoga while on this retreat!          

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      Jim Curcio, E-RYT 200:   Jim has been athletic his entire life. Growing up near the Jersey shore, he enjoyed swimming, surfing, skim boarding and water skiing. His teen years were spent skateboarding, snow skiing, and competing in basketball and tennis. After college Jim remained active in sports and added golf, cycling, and running to his many activities. At the persistence of his wife Deby, Jim was introduced to Yoga in the mid 90’s. The first class he attended was very flowery and did not resonate with him. It wasn’t until he was introduced to Hot Yoga, that he felt the connection was right for him. He could get an entire body work out , while gaining flexibility and balance! Yoga was allowing him to enjoy all his sports injury free and with as much zealous as his younger years. Moving to Colorado in 2004, Jim took to the mountains, teaching skiing , trail running and mountain biking. After years of a steady Yoga practice, Jim attended the Barkan Method Hot Yoga teacher training in 2011 and has been teaching ever since.

      Annie Elson - E-RYT 500:   Annie fell in love with Yoga the first time she stepped onto a mat in 1993 and has been voraciously studying ever since. Passionate about Restorative Yoga and all of its benefits, she was inspired to study with Judith Hanson Lasater and became certified in 2009 through The Yoga Tree in San Francisco. Numerous trainings and certifications later, Annie is now a 500- ERYT, owner / director of Yoga Village on the Central Coast of California, leads Yoga Alliance Teacher Trainings as well as Yoga retreats throughout the world. Annie is committed to making Yoga safe for every BODY, always introducing the most accessible version of each posture first before offering more advanced options. She is moved by how Yoga changes lives on every level ~ body, mind and spirit. Annie believes that while our practice begins on the mat, what we do with it in our everyday lives is the true essence of Yoga.     

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      Holly Padove - RYT 200; Qi Gong Instructor   Holly’s lifelong quest for balance led her to Yoga, Tai Chi and meditation in her mid- 20’s. She found solace from her fast-paced life in the practices and also inspiration from the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. Realizing her dharma was in the healing arts, she became passionate about natural health and wellness, becoming a massage therapist in 1992, and a Yoga Teacher in 1999. She also fell in love with the infinite wisdom of Ayurveda, earning a degree as a Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist in 2004. In 2012 a friend encouraged Holly to attend a Qi Gong workshop. That weekend the gentle, yet powerful movements of Qi Gong set in motion yet another path. She went on to train with Holden Qi Gong, receiving her teaching certification in 2013.  Holly also became certified as a Yoga Nidra facilitator in 2019, and has led retreats around the world for the past five years. She currently teaches numerous weekly Qi Gong and Yoga classes, offers Ayurvedic workshops including training Yoga Teachers, and offers personal Ayurvedic consultations.  Holly lives on the beautiful Central Coast of California with her amazing husband, two large dogs, a cat, a horse, two goats and four chickens! She also loves to travel the world, cook healthy meals with fresh picked veggies from her garden, ride her horse, and be active in the great outdoors.
