Ashlynn Manning has been teaching yoga for Camp SoulGrow for 4 years now!
Ashlynn also teaches through the Anna Lytton Foundation at the Springs School, grades K-8, as part of the physical education program. She teaches yoga for the Montauk Playhouse Childcare Center, and has taught with Project MOST, the Green School and Kama Deva Yoga.
This year, Ashlynn adds Prenatal Yoga private sessions for mommies-to-be, and will be offering a women's only yoga class on Friday afternoons at Yoga Lila in Montauk.
As an after-school teaching artist in Brooklyn and the Bronx for several years, she experienced the ability of movement and music to empower and engage children who struggle to focus and find few outlets for authentic self expression. She also witnessed the ever more demanding lifestyles our society places on young children, and sensed a need for the calm, accepting space that yoga provides.
Originally from Montauk, she majored in theater at Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Natick, MA, and earned her B.A. in Musicology at Oberlin College and Conservatory. She studied Yoga of the Voice under Silvia Nakkach of the Vox Mundi Project. She has spent much of the last decade traveling and writing songs about biodiversity.
Ashlynn is 200 hr Yoga Alliance Certified by Frog Lotus Yoga and Prenatal Teacher Certified by Sonic Yoga in NYC. She is a Children's Mindfulness Instructor for Mission Be, and a certified Children's Yoga Instructor through Yogi Beans in NYC. She has been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2012.
