Ashley Sharp

Ashley Sharp, E-RYT, is known for her wit, practicality, and tenderness as an instructor.  She has been teaching yoga, meditation, and dharma for over 20 years while continuing to study and practice at home and across the world. Also trained in yoga therapy and yoga nidra (a reclining meditation practice), her classes and trainings integrate many yogic and Buddhist techniques.

Ashley's ongoing practice of Vipassana meditation leads naturally to her unique weaving of mindfulness and dharma (wisdom) themes into an embodied understanding of the teachings.  She graduated from the "Dedicated Practioner Program," and the "Community Dharma Leader" trainings (both are 2 year invitational trainings through Spirit Rock Meditation Center).

She lives in Northern California among the redwood trees where she runs a small retreat center called Refuge at Pudding Creek. The center focuses on awakening through mindfulness, nature, art and yoga. Sharp is the author of Mindfulness for Beginners: 4 Weeks to Everyday Peace Gratitude and Focus.
