Namaste! Thank you for visiting our webhome. This site is dedicated with love to all beings and our evolution, individually and collectively.
My name is Ashley Cruz. I embrace both Ayurveda and Kriya Yoga's traditional teachings and practices as a universal path to cultivate and realize our full potential. Vinyasa is a natural sequence unfolding with creative intelligence - a conscious evolution connecting each moment with unifying breath; a form of moving meditation. Within it, we explore embodying and living yoga in full spectrum - sun to moon, wild to sublime, fullness to simplicity, action and being. There is yoga for everyone. Let me know how I can serve your path.
May all beings flourish and peace prevail on earth...
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti ~ Ashley, RYT 200

I am at Sedona Hot Yoga every single Friday and Monday! Thank you so much for mentioning to Jenn that you are interested in more Blessed Yoga Classes! Friday's class begins at 5:30 p.m. and Monday's classes are at 4:30 p.m. and at 6:30 p.m.
The classes I offer are founded on the principals of Kriya/Vinyasa/Hatha Yoga, where movement is coordinated with breath and intention. Aromatherapy, chanting, visualization, chakra work, and pranayama are also often integrated within these classes. Be prepared to chant, move, breathe, dance, and connect to nature and the divine beauty that resides in all of us. I promise you a long and restful savasana for all of your hard work and self love... mmm...

"Your practice is your way to reconnect directly with the intimacy that is life. It is a whole body prayer, a celebration of that which beats the heart and moves the breath. My dynamic and inspiring teachers have taught me to live with compassion for my students and to have a sincere regard for their healing. As a catalyst for transformation they have encouraged my own self–empowerment and self–awareness, helping me to love and thrive through life’s many challenges. As a result my attention is on interweaving prana, life force, breath, physical alignment, mental wellness and energetic flow to support a full and complete living sadhana, spiritual practice; within myself and within my students, on and off the mat. I teach and learn based on intelligent intuitive sequencing and applied spiritual wisdom.
My intention in teaching is to hold space for others’ awakening and healing. On a path lit by mentors in sacred wisdom traditions and a community of radically awakening spirit, I bow to my teachers in all forms."
