What is Ashaya Yoga?

Ashaya Yoga uses therapeutic alignment techniques paired with heart-centered instruction to emphasize the tantric yoga philosophy that there is no separation between ourselves and the divine. We are perfect in our imperfection, and we are all interconnected.

Come as you are, ready to explore and develop awareness of your body and breath through alignment.


Rachel is a yoga teacher based in Salt Lake City, Utah. She found yoga through her mother, who began her own practice at home with video recorded hatha yoga sequences. Rachel’s practice developed during college when she discovered vinyasa yoga. Her practice deepened in the years following, as she practiced under teachers at Jala Yoga in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, and at Lifespring and the Folded Leaf in Charleston, West Virginia.

Rachel had her first experience with Ashaya Yoga and Todd Norian during a workshop in 2014 in Fayetteville, West Virginia. She took her Ashaya Yoga® 200-hour TT with Randy Boyd in 2015 in the same town.

The Ashaya method came to Rachel at a time of deep transition in her life. She was assessing and leaving behind relationships that no longer served her—professionally and personally—and turning focus to those that did. Rachel has found this method to be deep and nurturing, two critical elements that had been missing from her practice. Rachel’s goal in her teaching is to provide a comfortable place for students to explore their practice and themselves.
