Healing Circle

When do we meet?

The first Tuesday of every month, from 530p-730p

What to Expect

Expect a safe container to process grievances in life. Guided by the facilitator, the class will start with a short dharma talk followed by a guided meditation through the four bodies, space for each person to journal about their meditation experience, or anything else that is weighing heavy as you come to the mat. A non-mandatory, but highly encouraged, sharing circle after the journaling allowing each person to put words to experiences. The facilitator will reflect to the person who shared, and once the sharing circle is complete, we will have a short, gentle yoga flow to help move energies through our body and close with an integration meditation. This circle is accessible to all levels of yogis, even if this is your first introduction to yoga. 

Ashley Chitwood

Ashley is originally from Denver, Colorado and over the years has lived in Kansas, Florida, California, Arizona and now living in Laramie, Wyoming. She took her first yoga and meditation class in 2017 to relieve anxiety and panic that had just started and learned after the first-class yoga and meditation practices alleviated her symptoms and supported a healthier mind/body connection while also working a high stress job. Shortly after her first class she started her 200hr Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in 2017 at The House of Yogi in San Diego, California. Her journey continued with training in reiki and other energetic healing modalities which led her to a deeper dive in Bali, Indonesia. In 2019 Ashley participated in a 9-month Grief to Gratitude yoga program after the passing of her father, and shortly after, received her Mindful Grieving 200hr Yoga Therapy Certificate in 2021 from the Center for Somatic Grieving and the Grief Support Network out of Boulder, Colorado. Ashley believes the process of grieving changes and adapts as we experience life, and nurturing the four bodies (mental body, physical body, spiritual body and emotional body) is a profound practice in the navigation of life’s toughest moments. Ashley enjoys traveling, spending time with family in Denver and trying to keep up with her new goldendoodle Izzy.
