I’m excited to announce that my online yoga studio is now OPEN FOR BUSINESS! I’ve got a free core video out today to welcome you into my new online home.
I’ve been dreaming about this day for years (4, to be exact) and agonizing over technology for days (4, again). I’m behind schedule, the video isn’t perfect, and the whole process has been a big fat yoga lesson in non-attachment, letting go, and contentment (go figure). But I’m ready to unleash this to the world and I hope you’re ready to take the journey with me.
How come it took me 4 years to do this?
Great question. Because I didn’t believe in myself and I was making a ton of excuses. Way back when I started this blog I got pretty good at producing video content. The technology I had at my fingertips happened to be great quality but I didn’t have the skills or the patience I needed to make it work with what I had and I didn’t have the money to invest in what I needed to make it easier. So I quit.
After awhile, technology caught up with me a bit and there were some solutions that I seriously considered but never invested in, basically because I was scared of committing. Although I am still scared today, I finally invested in what I needed to invest in to make this happen.
Welcome to Ashley Josephine’s Online Yoga Studio!
It’s not a catchy name, I know. If you have any ideas I’m all ears. Send me an email or reach out on FB or IG.
You can expect to find yoga classes, courses, and events in my online studio. I’m aiming to make it work like a real in-person studio, with the difference being both you and I can be anywhere in the world and still connect with one another. Eventually I’ll start offering live-streamed classes where you can take class with me at the same time no matter where we are. Cool, huh!?
For now, I’m offering a free 20-minute core video to get you started.
Please be patient with me as I get this running, learn how all the technology works and figure out what to produce for you! I’ve got tons of ideas in the works and more will be coming soon 🙂
About the free core video
This core video is something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. I offer a lot of shorter practices on YouTube, but I wanted this one to be a little more comprehensive. I’m proud of it because I think it’s challenging at the same time that it’s doable and I hope you actually find yourself ENJOYING it 🙂
The practice features 14 yoga-inspired core exercises and it takes about 20 mins. It was shot in the mountains of Costa Rica at Pura Vida Resort when I was co-leading a yoga retreat with Honest Soul Yoga.
I love the core and there’s way more coming surrounding the core soon. It’s symbolically the center of collaborative power, the house of energy transformation, and the seat of our willpower from which we choose to go out into the world and take action.
A quick note on the video itself. It’s not perfect. I know. As I mentioned above, I agonized over this for 48+ hours and I still can’t get it to be quite where I want it to be quality-wise. It’s watchable though and as soon as I figure it out, I’ll upload the higher quality version. Again, thanks for your patience as I hurdle the learning curves.
To enter the metaphorical doors of my new online yoga studio, you’ll need to register and create a free account. Once you create a free account, you’ll be able to view all my classes, courses, and products. As of right now, there’s just the one. Since it’s free, you’ll be able to “buy” it without having to enter in PayPal or CC info. In the future when you log in, you’ll be able to see everything that’s available in the studio as I add it in (think of it like the class schedule).
If you ever have issues, send me a note to let me know and we’ll get it figured out.
This is my gift to you (and me — win-win :)). I hope you enjoy your holiday with family and friends. Eat as many cookies and goodies as you want because you’ve got this core video waiting for you when you’ve thoroughly digested 😉
