Melanie Ashley

Yoga Alliance Senior Yoga Teacher, Mentor&

Creator of Clarity Yoga Shala

Offering you Mind Body Spirit Transformation Practices

I’m Melanie

I love the transformational effect of yoga, the spark in the eye of practitioners when they discover something new, the glee of accomplishment when they achieve something that they originally thought impossible, and the wisdom they develop as the transformational effects of yoga take place .... both ON & OFF the mat.  Your Yoga Mat becomes your training space for life!

The ultimate approach to integrated practices

I bring to you the alchemy of yoga as a fusion of training undertaken in Europe, India, Thailand and Peru over the last 20 years. And of course, my best teachers and guides have been my students.

I help overworked and exhausted professionals navigate through draining life changes find mental clarity, physical strength and emotional stability by  reconnect them with their personal truths & values
