Ashley Rufo

Ashley took her first yoga class in eighth grade in a church basement. She did not find a regular practice until she came across a Vinyasa Flow class while studying at Penn State. She began practicing regularly a few times a week, until it became a part of her daily routine. She fell in love with the invigorating yet humbling practice and completed her 200 hour teaching training after graduating college. Ashley teaches a powerful class that is skillfully sequenced to open and strengthen targeted areas of the body while finding meditation through movement. She guides a fluid flow through asanas, incorporating variations and arm balances for a challenge of the body and mind. There is always something to work toward and a new edge to explore.

Ashley Rufo instructs the following:
