Ashlee grew up behind Cannonsburg Ski Area in Rockford, Michigan. Her father owned a snowboard store so she grew up riding sideways. Her love for snowboarding took her first to Colorado and then to California for college. A snowboarding injury while living in California brought Ashlee back home to Grand Rapids where she started working for MVP while she recovered from two knee surgeries.
While working at MVP Metro, Ashlee met her husband, Matt, and together they took off on another adventure and lived in Breckenridge, Colorado for 5 years. After 5 years of mountain fun, they moved back to Grand Rapids to be closer to family.
Ashlee’s mom took her to her first yoga class at the age of 16. While in Colorado, Ashlee began practicing regularly again and worked at the front desk of a local yoga studio. When she moved back to Grand Rapids, she took this opportunity to dive deeper into her desire to teach.
Ashlee received her first RYT 200 from Asheville Yoga Center in 2015. Shortly after in Grand Rapids, Ashlee saw people walking down Fulton Street with yoga mats. She looked into it and this is where she discovered AM Yoga. In August 2015, Ashlee was part of AM Yoga’s first ever yoga teacher training. Through this training Ashlee realized she found her community.
Ashlee is an Experienced Yoga Teacher at AM yoga and has experience teaching a variety of classes from veterans, slow vinyasa, yin vinyasa, AMp vinyasa, AM vinyasa, labs, and meditation.
