Balance your body, heal your heart
Awareness Yoga is a transformative practice that offers profound relaxation and physical healing. By reducing the sympathetic/stress response and promoting the parasympathetic/rest and digest system, Awareness Yoga fosters optimal health and balance within the body.
Awareness Yoga is a transformative style that focuses on the release and opening of the spine to unravel deep layers of tension and facilitate profound physical, mental, and emotional healing. With its emphasis on precise alignments and supported poses, Awareness Yoga aims to cultivate inner awareness, promote relaxation, and create space for self-discovery and spiritual awakening. Whether you are a first-time practitioner or a seasoned yogi, our classes are suitable for all levels.
Yoga, derived from the Sanskrit word “yuj,” signifies the union of the individual mind with universal consciousness. In English, the root of the word “yoga” traces back to the biblical term “yoke.”
Join us at the Ivy House and explore the profound union of body, mind, and spirit through the transformative practice of Awareness Yoga.
We currently offer a 90 minute Awareness Yoga class every Saturday at 11am. This class is taught by Ashlea Davis and Lindsey Walker.
Message from Ashlea:
Hi my name is Ashlea. I have lived in Nashville since 2008 and I am originally from Michigan and a proud member of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi tribe. I have found that a daily meditation practice offers me much clarity and joy, and I love to share the gift of meditation and stillness with my students. I find so much value in guiding my students to self-realization through the practice of yoga beyond the postures and helping them to develop a practice of self-care through turning inward. When I’m not practicing or teaching yoga, you can find me spending time with my two kids, baking something sweet or enjoying a good meal.
Message from Lindsey:
Hi, my name is Lindsey! I am a RYT 500 hour instructor. I have been practicing yoga for the last 8 years and teaching for the last 5 years. Yoga has brought so much light into my life as well as a wonderful Nashville community of some truly amazing humans. Since 2015, I have been living in Nashville with my dog named Leia but originally I am from New York. When I am not on my mat, you can find me outside exploring, reading, cooking and traveling with my boyfriend Carson. I love to travel and explore the world so please share your favorite travels with me before or after class. I am so excited to be teaching Awareness Yoga at The Ivy House and to meet all of you.
