Ashton Tafoya

Ashton first discovered yoga 13 years ago after a long childhood of athletics and dance. She immediately fell in love with the practice and felt she had truly found her calling in life. While studying Fine Art in College Ashton spent as much time as possible on her mat. “Yoga has saved my life.” Asana helped Ashton to stay grounded and stress free during those tough years at the university, so much that after she graduated she attended a 200 hour teacher training in Costa Rica. Since then Ashton has taught in Northern California, Nevada and on her travels to South and Central America. She has attended Yin Yoga workshops and studied Thai Chi. Ashton designs her classes based on the energy of those attending and holds space for all levels and ages. “Yoga should be fun and transformative with all stages of life.” Not only has yoga aided in relieving stress for Ashton but it also opened the door to spirituality. She has learned that yoga is not only a physical practice but also a journey within. Ashton will continue her education winter of 2018 as she travels to India to receive her 500 Hour Yoga teacher training.
