Ashley Ihinfeldt

With a DVD as her instructor, Ashley Started yoga in 2002 in her living room to help manage the
stress of nursing school.  She is from Oswego, NY located on Lake Ontario in Upstate NY.  After
moving to Charlotte in 2008, she started a more regular practice after meeting a wonderful
yoga teacher named Avi.  It started with some one on one sessions, but then Avi invited her to
come to Community Yoga. Since her first class it has felt like home!
Ashley loves how at the end of a yoga class you feel invigorated and renewed.  Your practice is
a great way to come to know yourself.  She has always struggled with anxiety, and yoga has
been one of the major pillars in the restoration of her whole-self.  Yoga has given her confidence
and has helped teach her how to care for and love herself.
In February 2017 she had the opportunity to take a vinyasa teacher training through Urban
Bliss in Charlotte, where she completed her 200 RYT under the instruction of Lizzy Homann.
Ashley loves that as an instructor, she can share yoga with others and guide them to love and
explore themselves.  She especially loves sharing yoga with new students, seniors, or anyone
who thinks they are not able to do yoga.  She loves that Yoga is for everyone.
Ashley lives in Huntersville with her husband, Collin and her two dogs, Stig and Hank. She
loves anything you can do outside, camping and hiking are her favorites. She likes to read and
thrives on learning new things. She has been a nurse for 16 years. She feels that being both a
nurse and a yoga instructor increases her ability to help others heal.
