MEET THE TEAM
Ashley Hagen (E-RYT), started practicing yoga in 2010 to help improve her performance as a college athlete. In 2013, after experiencing the benefits of a daily yoga practice, she received her 200-hr yoga teacher certification and began teaching vinyasa yoga, the most accessible style of power yoga. She is inspired by all movement styles including martial arts, calisthenics, running, weight lifting and dance. Her classes and workshops are fun, yet challenging with focus on finding the yogi warrior within.
Lang Charters has been teaching Vinyasa, Hatha, Power, and occasionally Gentle or Restorative Yoga for 5+ years and practicing for 9 years. Lang was inspired by and studied with Meghan Currie and Eoin Finn, while also being influenced by Clara Roberts-Oss, MC Yogi, Janet Stone, and Dylan Werner. Lang graduated from 200 HR YTT in 2015. He is partway through his 500 HR YTT, where he’s gotten certificates in Yoga Mind Body Medicine, Alignment and Adjustments, and Yogic by Nature. Lang teaches a class that’s all about Love, connection, and embodying joy. He includes music with a message, emphasis on inner-work and alignment, and while the classes are creative and on the vigorous side, he creates space for all levels of students.
Jenn has been practicing yoga for 5 years and helps her stay mindful and grateful of the body and life she has been blessed with. She completed her 200 hr yoga teaching certification with Maui Yoga Shala in 2018.
Her classes start slow with meditation and breath work. Her vinyasa flow classes focus on alignment and building strength.
Sandy Francis has been teaching Hatha yoga for about 6 years and practicing on and off since the 1970s. Sandy was inspired by Rolf Gates and other friends and family who practice with her. Sandy has studies with Jen Michell, Kate Towell, Janell Harman, Samara Andrade, Amber Tande, Betsy Shilling – among other inspiring teachers. Sandy graduated from the 200 hour program at Twist Yoga Edmonds in 2013 and will complete the 500 hour certification in early 2020. Her classes are slow flow, building a bit of heat with music, breath work, traditional and creative movement. The class moves through shapes and will hopefully find a sense of where you are on and off the mat. The goal is to strengthen the central nervous system so that all situation become manageable.
Kay has been teaching a blend of hatha flow, restorative, functional and intention-based yoga since 2010. After a back injury in 1999, after years of long-distance running, was her firstintroduction to yoga as a practice, a lifestyle. She was inspired by her non-surgical return to improved spinal health, and by her amazing, supportive teachers along the way. She is grateful to Beth Shaw and Michele Hutchins for her YogaFit 200 HR YTT in 2012, and has gratefully received additional yoga wisdom with Judith Lasater, (restorative yoga), Angela Farmer (pranaenergy yoga), Jen Breen (Bikram-style yoga), and Sherry Zak Morris (Gentle/Senior/Chair yoga). Kay is especially eager to invite newcomers, all shapes and ages, to the mat. With previous experience as an Intensive Care/Cardiac Rehab nurse, she also has specialty certifications in Personal Training, Senior Fitness, and Advanced Gentle/Chair Yoga. Kay’s class practices rely
on the addition of props and adjustments to accommodate and modify for “yoga for every
body”; slow-flow, and practicing yoga-off-the-mat are her personal challenges. She is happy to welcome you to Ashes Yoga Studio!
After completing Peace Corps service in Lesotho, Africa, Chelsea moved to Flagstaff, Arizona. There she found a deep connection to the yoga practice and started attending classes nearly every day at the studio, Yoga Revolution. She knew early on she wanted to teach and share the breath-to-movement connection she had discovered. She attended her 200 hour training at Sunny Yoga in Thailand, focusing on hatha/vinyasa. She believes that yoga is for EVERY body. She offers plenty of modifications, up and down, so every yogi has options. Her favorite class is a vin to yin style, getting warm with a good vinyasa flow and then transitioning to the melty yin portion. Off the mat you’ll find Chelsea rock climbing with her husband, teaching English, or drinking tea in her tiny home van.
Cat has just begun her yoga teaching journey after graduating from Ashes Yoga School with founder Ashley Hagan in early 2020, but has had a personal practice for 4 years. She is inspired by the inclusive atmosphere that yoga brings and hopes to share it with everyone that walks into her classes. In class with Cat you can expect to feel energized and loved, with sprinklings of gratitude and a handful of chaturangas.
