Her first professional passion was for events, marketing & pr but  after travelling overseas and wanting to make more of a positive impact on her community, Ash ditched her public relations + marketing daily routine and decided to follow her gut, creating a space to inspire + bring like minded people together - to find + strengthen their purpose through movement + stillness. 

When Ash is not in the studios, she loves brainstorming with other creative minds over a coffee, hiking in the hinterlands or swimming in the ocean.
