Ashton Reynolds

Mat Yoga Instructor

After yoga teacher training, I opened my own small practice inside a wellness center in Roseville, CA specializing in yin, restorative and hatha yoga classes and workshops. Gradually, I began to offer all levels Vinyasa classes at a few other studios in the area. I am passionate about creating a safe space for intentional breath and movement, to feel and explore without judgement. Trusting that if you simply breathe and feel you can release unwanted tension, stress and trauma from within the body and mind. My hope is for all of you to walk out of the room feeling lighter then when you walked in.

Lauren Davis

Aerial Yoga Instructor

Lauren was first introduced to yoga when she was 21 and battling severe health issues. She began with gentle restorative mat yoga, and her love of yoga took off from there! Yoga has been a constant in Lauren’s life for over a decade, and it was only two years ago that she hopped into an Aerial Hammock for the first time. Lauren fell hard for the aerial hammock and practiced regularly, eventually training to implement & teach a kids aerial yoga program.

Donna Dowson

Mat Yoga Instructor

Growing up as a dancer, Donna had an early appreciation for the flow and grace of the human body, and she fell in love with the Asana practice when she discovered yoga 11 years ago. The constant challenge of developing and maintaining physical, mental and spiritual balance has kept her coming back ever since. Seven years ago she started teaching yoga so she could help students discover the beauty of the breath, the ease of movement and the acceptance of self and others that yoga offers. Always emphasizing the practice of honoring the body’s current state of being through ahimsa (non-violence), Donna encourages students to explore all the possibilities yoga has to improve the health and well-being of mind, body and spirit.  Her classes are fun, energetic and aimed at helping you find balance in your practice on and off the mat. There is a yoga practice out there for anyone who is willing to try.

After several years of training on multiple apparatuses, she began teaching aerial silks in 2015. She is very dedicated to the development of her students abilities and she enjoys nurturing their confidence as they get stronger and more comfortable with progressions that previously scared them, or that they didn't believe they were capable of.
