ABOUT ASHLEY HOLLY
Ashley Holly McEachern is a certified yin yoga teacher and yin yoga teacher trainer. Ashley fell in love with yin yoga in her early twenties during a deep dive into the human experience. What followed was years of exploration of yin yoga, and she has now completed hundreds of hours of yin yoga teacher trainings with Bernie Clark, Sarah Powers, Cathy Keenan (TCM), Elle Basten (RMT) and David Fife. Ashley’s teachings are deeply informed by her close work with Thomas Myers, the Fascia King and her study of fascial manipulation, biomechanics and Traditional Chinese Medicine. This expertise in “fascial fitness” is paired with her comprehensive study of Thai Yoga Massage, Hands-on Adjustments and Reiki, all of which she wholeheartedly believes are integrated into the yin yoga experience.
Ashley has completed thousands of hours of yoga teacher training and is qualified to teach hatha, ashtanga, vinyasa, restorative, yin, meditation, prenatal, postnatal and more. Prior to teaching yoga, Ashley completed her MA in International Relations, worked as a copywriter and digital strategist and travelled the world uncovering the answers to many of her greatest life questions. She is a loving mother of a beautiful boy and husband and loves adventures, nature, cooking and teaching.
