“We need a light that has retained its kinship with the darkness. For we are sons and daughters of the darkness and of the light. … All creativity awakens at the primal threshold where light and darkness test and bless each other. You only discover balance in your life when you learn to trust the flow of this ancient rhythm.” –John O’Donohue
We all have experiences in life that profoundly impact who we are and how we live. That sway us into the light and into the dark. In this workshop we will explore yoga practices, from postures to meditation to lecture, that help you find balance and live a grounded, steady life rooted in both light and dark.

Join Ashley as she shares tips and practices that have helped her move through anxiety and depression and get comfortable with the light AND the dark.
