Ashley Kamen is known for teaching from her heart – supporting and carefully instructing her students. She sets a foundation for joy and serenity in her classes. With over nine years of experience teaching yoga in Key West, each class is individualized and she is skilled in working with different levels of experience and ages.
Ashley began attending yoga classes in 1998 seeking relief from scoliosis. As she discovered the therapeutic and strengthening benefits of yoga, she also experienced a new way of moving though the world.
Ashley continues to deepen her practice and teaching skills through advanced studies in anatomy and physiology, meditation, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, pre-natal certification, specialized training in yoga for scoliosis and various Anusara yoga intensives. She is grateful to have called Key West home for over a decade and lives happily with her loving husband and charming, quirky dog.
“I have been studying yoga under Ashley’s guidance for several years. She has always maintained a high level of attention to her own study of yoga and that translates into classes that are varied and rewarding. Ashley’s instructions are clear and she is attentive to each person’s needs so that she adapts a posture to suit a student. A student will most likely feel nurtured through Ashley‘s generous grace and gentle care. The atmosphere that permeates her classes is one of peace and security. Ashley’s knowledge and soothing manner results in classes that always lead me to a deeper connection to my breath and to a sense of peace and lightness carry forward through the day. I feel very fortunate to study under her and am grateful to have her as my teacher.” Pat – Key West, FL
“Ashley has been my yoga teacher for many winters. I always walk away from class feeling grounded, stretched, and strengthened. Ashley is very giving…Class is all about us. She is a patient and kind teacher, yet playful! She recently bought us extra long strapes to show us different postures and stretches. She watches all of us and gives many adjustments. I look forward to her classes and leave with a full heart! Come and join us and find out for yourself!” Kate – Key West, FL
“Ashley is a talented teacher who not only communicates the “how to’s” of a developing yoga practice, but also encourages, softly and firmly, a deepening spirit of centering on which yoga relies. Ashley herself manifests the vital principle of living the practice, thereby not only teaching but showing how yoga can enhance both body and spirit.” Mary – Key West, FL
