Meet Your Lead Teachers

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, E-RYT 300 and currently enrolled for RYT 500, Completed a 300-hr 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.
