Ashley Hixon (Ashtanga Mysore)

Ashley was introduced to her first teacher Annie Pace in Crestone, CO in 2004 and found herself deeply resonating with the Ashtanga tradition. She continued on to study with a number of lineage holders in Oregon, Washington, and Colorado; eventually landing in Boulder and completing Richard Freeman’s Teacher Intensive in 2009. She has spent time studying in India at the Ashtanga Research Institute in Mysore with Saraswati Jois and with Rolf Naujokat in Goa. In 2015 she completed a 100Hr training intensive with Maty Ezraty. She has assisted her main teachers Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor in numerous workshops, trainings, and conferences. Currently, she teaches the afternoon Mysore program at the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, CO.

She is a Licensed Massage Therapist with an equal focus on both Thai and Western modalities and also holds a 560Hr Certification in Advanced Vibrational Medicine; giving her a well versed platform in gross and subtle anatomy.

She holds the contemplative nature of a consistent practice a key to cultivating self-awareness and finds the ability of the breath to reshape our perceptive reality an invaluable tool for personal evolution. For more info visit ashleyhixon.com
