Ashley Comer, Hatha Yoga & Pranayama Teacher
I am a world traveler, mother of 3, business owner, and local yoga teacher. I teach balance to calm the nervous system with diaphragmatic breath exercises. In my classes, I build vitality with creative sequencing, moving to stretch and strengthen your body and mind. I believe that one’s yoga practice should ultimately lead to a regular meditation practice to achieve a deep level of relaxation and clarity in the mind.

Maryellen Baverso, Vinyasa & Mobility Teacher, CEU Educator
I love traveling, teaching, and learning abroad. I began teaching yoga as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Indonesia. I taught English and started a women’s leadership club at school, where we applied yoga as a tool to build community and to individually feel more confident in ourselves. I’ve continued my education and journey as a teacher and believe in a consistent movement and mediation practice. In my class, experience intentional movement that’s joyful, purposeful, and intuitive. I specialize in teaching beginners, YogaTuneUp (myofascia therapy ball rolling), and functional mobility, while offering hands-on assists.
