Ashley Oliva, Yoga and Barre Instructor

Ashley found her passion for fitness later in life by deciding to follow her childhood dream of becoming a dancer. She began interning full time at Lou Conte Dance Studio and a local hot yoga studio in exchange for free classes and membership. For two years, she trained full time and learned as much as she could about movement and anatomy in multiple styles of dance with guidance from world-renowned teachers as well as Hubbard Street company dancers. She also found the confidence and happiness that she thought her life was lacking. After earning her certifications as a personal trainer and yoga instructor, Ashley hopes to share her knowledge and enthusiasm for health and its immediate benefits to individuals of all fitness levels by creating a welcoming class environment. Outside of the studio, Ashley's favorite hobbies include going to concerts, Lou Malnati's pizza, Costume design, and watching the office.
