Ansley Herndon, e-ryt-500, M.Ed.
Like many yoga teachers, Ansley began teaching yoga after being a student for a few years. She wanted to combine her love of the practice with her experience as an educator. She was trained in a vinyasa style of yoga but over the years has created space for other styles in her classes and now primarily teaches in the Yapana method. This method utilizes intelligent prop placement and incorporates restorative yoga practice. Ansley also does Thai Yoga Therapy which she sometimes blends into her classes. Recently, Ansley has begun to work alongside a treatment team of therapists and a registered dietician in a center for eating disorders and addiction recovery. Ansley has a unique way of integrating current brain science, yoga and narrative into her classes. She tries not to take herself too seriously and encourages students to do the same by keeping things lighthearted and fun. When Ansley is not teaching yoga she loves to read, walk and spend time with her family. Ansley has a BS from Cal State Fullerton and a Master’s in Education with a focus on Applied Behavior Analysis; she is an ACE certified group fitness instructor and an e-RYT 500. She is an international presenter and is currently a mentor teacher with Leeann Carey Yoga. You can find Ansley at www.thatyogagirl.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
