Ashley McKeachie is a registered yoga instructor who received her 200 hour teacher training through Core Power Yoga and her 800-hour certification at Loyola Marymount University. She most recently graduated with her Masters Degree in Yoga Studies from Loyola Marymount University in May 2017. From 2014-2020, Ashley worked at the Orange County Pain and Wellness Center in Santa Ana, where she taught patients a variety of tools of yoga to help with ease the challenges associated with chronic pain. Currently, she is adjunct faculty at Orange Coast College, where she leads and facilitates the Yoga Instructor Training Program.

Ashley began her yoga journey in January 2010, with a background of over twenty years of ballet, jazz, and modern dance. Upon returning to Southern California in 2008 after living in Italy for 10 years, she found out she had hyperthyroidism. She went through two sessions of radioactive iodine to reduce the size of her overactive thyroid, which left her feeling lethargic, weak, unmotivated, and desperate for better overall health. Yoga completely changed Ashley, making her the strongest she has ever been, and continues to improve the connection between her mind, body, and breath. She brings encouragement, hands-on adjustments, visualization, and the Yoga Sutras to her classes. Ashley believes that Yoga gives you the confidence to know and feel that everything is as it should be, and you are already perfect exactly the way you are.
