The yoga shakti Blog

Nurturing Your Mind, Body, and Spirit on the Path of Yoga and Self-Discovery


I have kept a blog since 2005. The original can be found here.

 With time, I intend to move my entries — in a thoughtfully-curated fashion — over to this new home. In the meantime, please feel free to read my new posts here as they arrive or my old posts there. I've written about Ayurveda, Aromatherapy, Yoga of all sorts, Reiki, the Yoga Sutras, Astrology, life. There are even recipes. 

Love is the essence of our life. I have written this blog with love, and I offer it to you, dear reader, with the hope that the suggestions offered here will become a vital part of your self-healing and continued well-being.

~ Ashley


Every month, I spend hundreds of hours keeping the Yoga Shakti Blog going. Since 2005, it has remained free, ad-free and alive thanks to patronage from readers. I have no staff, no interns, not even an assistant — it is a thoroughly one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor makes your own life more livable in any way, please consider aiding its sustenance with a one-time or loyal donation. Your support makes all the difference.

You can also become a spontaneous supporter with a one-time donation in any amount — between a cup of tea or a lunch.


Thank you for your donation!


Also: Because the Yoga Shakti Blog is well into its second decade and because I write primarily about ideas of timeless nourishment, each week I dive into the archive and resurface from among the thousands of essays one worth re-savoring. Subscribe to this free midweek pick-me-up for heart, mind, and spirit below — it is separate from the standard blog subscription of new pieces:
