Ashley Beels, Meraki™  Coach & Yoga Coach

M.A. Educational Leadership

Hi yogis! My name is Ashley Beels and I am a Meraki™ Coach guiding self-seekers and soulful entrepreneurs to live & create from their desires. I teach Meraki™ Yoga and Rise, Shine and Restore at Serenity Yoga Studio. Early on in my coaching business, I found the main struggle with clients was *getting them out of their heads* to find the clarity they were craving. The main struggle was having them get into their bodies to find the innate wisdom from the other parts of the self; heart, body, and soul. I started to use yoga techniques and breath to help integrate my clients out of the mind, and into the deeper parts of the self. I was so inspired by the transformations I saw with my clients from just putting them into one yoga position during their session, or asking them to focus on their breathing, that I started to dream about how I could incorporate yoga teaching into my coaching practice. I soon after enrolled in a 6-month restorative yoga coaching program in beautiful Avila Beach to learn how to weave the art of coaching and practice of yoga into 1 unique combination. Now, at Serenity we can offer a unique combination of coaching and yoga in Meraki™ Yoga, a yoga class for creatives and entrepreneurs. Click here for more info.

Join Monika for a Ananda style yoga class for beginners. In this class the poses are held a bit longer, with a specific affirmation paired with each asana. These affirmations allow you to go deeper into the postures both physically and spiritually. There are pauses in between each pose to allow the body to recover physically, re-center, and feel the effects of the proceeding posture. Monika completed her yoga teacher training at Ananda School of Yoga and Meditation, in Neveda City.


 Kayli Chapman~ Tantra Yoga Teacher

I teach yoga to bring more Light into the world.  I love to help students find freedom – whether that’s a millimeter more space and ease in an asana (posture) or finding the courage to make a big positive life change. found yoga in 2010 at a unique and fun studio called Yoga Flirt. 

It wasn’t long before I decided I needed more yoga in my life, so I courageously followed my intuition and completed the 200 hour Tantra Flow Yoga teacher training with Jeanne Heileman, senior student of Rod Stryker.  The goal in this style of yoga is to remove darkness and increase the brightness of the student’s spirit.  When this happens the chances of the student discovering their True Essence increases dramatically!

In class with me you will experience high-quality instruction from a teacher that is sure to greet you with a smile.  You will improve the health of your body through practicing wisely sequenced asanas (yoga postures) that are both stretching and strengthening.  The quality and capacity of your breath will increase drastically leaving you feeling full of life and energy.  As a result you will experience a feeling of being grounded in your body, peaceful in your mind, and expansive in spirit. In practicing with me, you will learn to observe, discover, and trust your inner wisdom as you begin to live radiantly.  It starts with the small step of choosing to show up on your mat.  The magic of yoga with take over from there. Kayli teaches a special Friday evening workshop once a month 6:00-8:00 pm
