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. When she is not working, you can find her in Central America hanging out in the jungle and beaches with a fresh margarita.
