I found that Ashley talks too much. It was hard to enjoy the class. I'm sure for some all the extra info she gives is helpful. Her style just isn't for me.

I love Ashley's classes and this was a great practice to begin 2016 with. Thanks so much Ashley! Keep them coming :)

I love Ashley's classes, there are a complete body and mind bless.
I have a question..why would chair pose make me feel angry? It happens every time, even when I'm feeling calm and relax. Any ideas?

It was so challenging, and for some reason my body resisted the back bend so much, so I really had to push through. But I feel wonderful. Loved the meditation at the end!!!

Hello, I really like your way of teaching yoga. Thank you. At the end of this session you do some more advanced, in my mind, poses, could you please show some alternatives please.

Dear Ashley!
I love your classes, especially your well chosen words and knowledge about how everything goes together, about the balance of all. They enhance my practice a lot! I am very active, practicing dance and yoga for years now. Still, I took this class this morning, I felt nauseous in the middle of it, and the whole ongoing day. Tonight I feel as if someone has hit me with a hammer, and the practice itself was unusually hard and even made me tired. This never really happens to me, as I usually leave class energized. Is there some heavy detoxing going on?
Best, Hanna

P.s. I did this flow at the start of the year but find it great to come back to when I feel I need some more releasing and it always helps x

Aw thank you! It's great for that release, isn't it? xo Namaste

Ashley- I love your practices!!! You have educated me on so many things about mind, body, and soul. I actually just did my first wheel pose on sat. with one of your practices! I do have a question though- I do hold water in my right knee, my right elbow won't straighten all the way, and my right wrist can't hold a lot of weight either... Is this the stagnant things held in the body? But I also do suffer from RA. I'm not about dr.s either.... Do you have any suggestions? I started my practice Nov. 30th everyday. My body is opening up slowly but surely and Ive been feeling the best in a long time! Thank you!!!! Namaste!

AshleyTurner, posted on February 6, 2015

@Jacz111 First of all...CONGRATULATIONS on doing yoga everyday since November! That is fantastic!!! Given that you 'carry water' in your knee and your elbow and wrist can't carry a lot of weight, I would not call this just 'stagnant energy'. There is a very good chance that you have biomechanical issues. I would recommend consulting your physician regarding your RA condition. Yoga (and meditation) have been proven to reduce inflammation and symptoms, as well as improve one's relationship to pain and a chronic disorder. You can always google yoga for arthritis, as I know there are several people that specialize in this and they may have more classes specifically choreographed for this. Please do post back, if you find any great resources so others can benefit too! I would just recommend listening to your body, taking it easy, being patient and working towards a nice, slow progression and building strength and flexibility...all of which sound like exactly what you are doing!

Thank you, Ashley, for a wonderful flow! I really enjoyed cleaning my spirit house and removing blocked energy and focusing on a new beginnings for 2015.

AshleyTurner, posted on January 18, 2015

You're very welcome! Glad you enjoyed! :)

A practice appropriate for these changing times. Letting go the old baggage, in preparation for the NEW! Thank You So much! You ROCK!


AshleyTurner, posted on January 18, 2015

Heck yeah! Thank YOU for watching!! xox A

I loved the class. If I'm being honest, I would have preferred not the have the narrative of visualizing family, children passing away . . . I believe you can strip down the layers of who you are to "nobody" without that visualization. It really turned me off.

AshleyTurner, posted on January 18, 2015

I sincerely apologize if the visual offended you. I deeply value your input <3 Namaste

Loveprincess, posted on January 4, 2015

I am a beginner yogi, so a few poses were challenging for me. However, being that this is a new year (2015!!) it was just the practice that I needed. I have a sensitive digestive track and my focus for the new year is letting go of negativity, I will be returning to this practice. Thank you Ashley, Namaste.

AshleyTurner, posted on January 18, 2015

Woohoo! Kudos on pushing yourself! Keep it up! And keep me posted on your progress xo A

Practices with Ashley are like practicing with a friend who really understands you and wants the very best for you. Thank you!

heather.nill, posted on December 31, 2014

I am new to yoga so some of it was really challenging but I understand yoga is about letting your body feel it inside and out. Thank you for such a great ending to 2014, releasing all that it brought so we can allow new to come in with 2015. Namaste and a Lotus to you!

I've found Ashley's meditation practices to center me and give me confidence to keep moving forward. This practice is a wonderful detox!

Thank you for this practice! I love twists and detox practices- I think I've done nearly all on this program, but this is always my favorite. so well rounded with physical, mental, and spiritual aspects.

Wow thank you so much!

Thank you, of course!

This practice really made me feel a connection with my body and forget the departure of my husband to a new city. This is a new period of our lives and it showed me that yoga can help you through hard situations. Can't wait to see more new videos.

Ashley I loved this practice today . Thank you. Namaste

lalynn93, posted on July 19, 2014

this was fantastic! I chose to do this in the middle of the year, but its appropriate because Im starting school for the first time next month in a few years and I really needed to hear all the words you spoke regarding clearing out old labels, and emotions. I cant believe how perfect this was for the current way Ive been feeling these past few weeks. thank you for helping me wash away some of the negative energy thats been clogging my heart.

Thank you Ashley for this class , it was all I need to hear and contemplate about!and the physical aspect really satisfying! Maria from Greece

Found the cuing really hard to follow in the practice- I had to keep looking at the screen to see what pose we were supposed to be doing, which prevented me from going deeper into my practice.

@Hope14 Good can use the block on it's highest height and also keep a slight bend in the front knee if that helps!
