The transformative power of yoga has shaped Jen Ashley’s life for the past 15 years. A native of Chicago, Jen has worked in the high-pressure world of television production for the past two decades, and today is responsible for hundreds of hours of television programming each year for a major motorsports network. Jen has also produced documentary-style programming for Discovery, Hallmark Channel, and National Geographic.
Jen first experienced yoga while living in Chicago, and she continued practicing while living in California. A relocation to Indiana in 2019 led Jen to SOL Hot Yoga Studio, which greatly elevated her yoga experience. She began to notice how good she felt on the mat, and the good feelings soon began to influence life away from the mat. The experience led Jen to begin paying closer attention to how her body was feeling, and she was soon adjusting her lifestyle to enhance that feeling.
As her experience blossomed Jen began to delve into a deeper understanding of the correct alignment for postures, and the importance of sequencing and building on postures. She also began to study the history of yoga and how it has evolved with the passing of time. Jen graduated SOL teacher training in June 2021, and was immediately busy in the studio teaching Hatha and Vinyasa. Jen’s passion and enthusiasm has helped others know and share her love of yoga as she embraced her new teaching role.
Jen’s ongoing work in television production leads her to extensive travel throughout the year, and her quest is to find a yoga studio in each city she visits. With diligent efforts, this has allowed Jen to continue to grow her yoga experience in even the most rural American regions!
