When diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 9, Ashley was put into Pilates incorporated Physical Therapy… and hasn’t stopped since.
Ashley Yashar is born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. Since she was a young girl, Pilates has always been incorporated into her life no matter where life has taken her. Being diagnosed with arthritis in her ankles at such a young age, she unfortunately was held back from a lot of physical activity growing up… but Pilates was her saving grace.
Ashley graduated from Loyola Marymount University with her BFA in English and Psychology in 2019. Since then, she has gone into the world of marketing and writing.
Almost 20 years later after her first Pilates experience, and under the direction of the instructors at Archer, it was pretty much a no brainer for Ashley to become a certified instructor herself. Being able to teach and train is a dream come true, and doing what she loves everyday gives her the motivation to always make her students strong both physically and mentally!
