Meet Your Facilitators

Ashley DeSaro, E-RYT 200, Prenatal Certified teacher and Owner of Pure has immersed herself in the journey of self-exploration through Yoga. When she first stepped onto a mat and noticed the immediate release of tension in her physical body. As she continued taking classes, she noticed how much more relaxed her mind was and how to manage stress better. This realization sparked her to continue to learn about the philosophy of yoga. Ashley has completed courses in chakra work, essential oils, and became LoveYourBrain Certified to teach those that live with a TBI .Through her passion of the practice she decided to commit to share what she has learned in hopes that her students learn to live their lives to the fullest. Ashley’s classes challenge students to step out of their comfort zone and to have breakthroughs for the mind, body, and soul.

Adrienne Stevens, RYT 500, Completed a 300 course at The American Yoga Academy in 2013 and went on to study meditation and authentically apprenticed to become a Reiki Master / Teacher. She loves learning and has continued to be a diligent student herself so she can share the new experiences in the practice of her students. To deepen her traditional yoga practice she is also certified in SUP and Aerial Yoga as well. She has completed courses in chakra work and crystals. She designs her classes to be a positive and encouraging environment and enjoys watching the transformation of her students both on and off of the mat. 


Studying YTT at Pure Toms River Yoga under the instruction of Denise Tranchina, Adrienne Stevens and Ashley DeSaro was amazing. Their knowledge, encouragement and support during our yoga journey made this training an exceptional experience. Pure is a welcoming, non-judgmental community. The YTT curriculum created a solid foundation which I was able to build upon to find my voice and become a knowledgeable practitioner, and a safe and confident guide

“I would like to say thank you for the amazing experience completely the YTT  at Pure. It was well organized, very informative extremely educational and well rounded. I feel like I was so prepared to teach from the moment I graduated because of the very thorough fully thought out planned program that I received . I felt immediately a part of a family and I continue to feel that way and I have built long-standing friendships and relationships with my peers that went through the program as well as the teachers. I am very grateful for my teachers and my teachers teachers it was the best experience.! I highly recommend if you are considering becoming a teacher to go through this amazing program! “

“I am proud to be one of the graduates of Pure’s 2020 YTT. It was a challenging training of studying during the Covid-19 restrictions along with a virtual switch to Zoom. Our Teachers adapted well to the environment that was giving to us and dedicating to give us the best training with their skills.
