Let me start by saying this, dear friends: wherever you are in your journey, you are not alone. You are held, you are supported … even if it doesn't feel that way, even if you're feeling lost.
You see, I know what it's like to walk in the dark … to not know where I'm going, or where the next step might take me.
And I also know what it's like to walk in the light … to move toward that which gives me joy, toward what fills me up and empowers me to give.
This is our shared experience. This is what it is to be human: to move from uncertainty to illumination and back again, over and over. This is what it means to practice yoga: to breathe in and breathe out, to receive and to give.
I'm Ashley Baker Haselton, and I'm here to support you in your journey.

In all I do, I continue to follow my heart, listening intently when it speaks. And if there's a truth I can offer you as a teacher, it's this …
You have the courage to do what you are called to do.
You have the strength to embark upon your own hero's journey.
You have the love to carry you through both the light and the dark.
With love and gratitude,
Ashley Baker Haselton
