It has been a long while since I have written in this yoga blog and it feels really good to be back. I hadn't written here because I had to spend most of my time and energy creating and successfully running my first yoga studio YogaWasi, which meant that I put most of my blog writing skills into that blog, although... I really missed having the freedom to write more personally, like I did here. To share more of myself as a wanderer versus as a "business owner".
Having my own yoga studio was an amazing and fulfilling experience here in Cusco, Peru, but, as some of you may have heard, I recently sold it in order to be free to go to the USA to have my first child, a little girl. Yeah, I am having a little girl!
After she is born, I intend to move to London with her kind and loving father and we will start a new life there together. So, as you can see, there have been so many changes over the past few years and I'm looking forward to catching up with you all.
Despite all the changes, moving around, etc... One thing that hasn't changed is my love for yoga principles, philosophy, and practice. When I first started this blog it was with the intention of inspiring and sharing. I have missed studying yoga in depth and so I hope that now that I have a bit more free time, I am going to pick it up again and share what I learn here.

❤ WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT ASHLEY CRUZ YOGA ❤
"From Aldea Yanapay (great school of love to children), to the incredible homely hostel la boheme, to the food at mercado san blas and at greenpoint... My 6 weeks in Cusco/Qosqo/centre/gravitational centre were all truly well balanced out by Ashley ● I have been doing yoga for five years in London, Lisbon and NYC and I was wonderfully surprised by the teacher Ashley in Cusco, Peru. From her words, to the sense of opportunity, helping, the pace, the getting everyone's names and brief "why am I here", taste for music and simply those oils... vinyasa gained a new look for me. ● You made me feel so balanced out, just when I needed that push. May your excellent work continue and your knowledge be taken further." ~ Yours, Ana Maria (portugal)
