Yoga For Knitters

Ashtyn Thomas discovered yoga in high school. After practicing at many different studios throughout the years, she ultimately fell in love with Strala through YouTube. She was extremely drawn to the emphasis on moving with ease instead of always going to the extreme and feeling like she never got it right. Ashtyn participated in a weekend of training with Tara where she truly learned what it means to move and breath like herself. Now yoga is about celebrating each moment though breath and focused movement. When Ashtyn isn’t yoga-ing she is a kindergarten teacher in the Seattle area. She believes that everyone, no matter what age, can benefit from even a little bit of yoga, because it feels really good to be you.
