Ashley Masters, NC Licensed Massage Therapist #9459, E-RYT-200, Reiki Master/Teacher.
I received my 500 hour certification from Southeastern Institute in 2009. I became a student of reiki and energy healing in 2011 and most recently earned my Master level from Nikki Young in the Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage.
In addition to my massage training I have been studying Thai massage with Jill Burynski since 2011, and just completed level 2 thai massage training with her this fall. Because of my yoga and energy background I feel I have a unique view of the body, not just muscles, ligaments, and bones but an all encompassing energetic, physical and emotional being.
My main focus is Thai massage because it addresses the body on all of these levels, bringing balance and harmony to each and every client. In 2007 after the birth on my first daughter I started a daily yoga practice, I have practiced since I was 15 but it wasn’t until I saw my body stretched and stressed that the benefits of a daily practice meant so much! I began my teacher training journey in 2010 and have been a student and teacher ever since.
I’ve taken from internationally known teachers such as Jim Bennitt, Sean Corn, Stephanie Keach, Andrey Lappa and Mara Healy, as well as the beautiful souls the Charlotte yoga scene has to offer.
I absolutely love my practice, how it truly saved my life and it is my true wish to share my love of yoga with everyone I teach! In addition to teaching weekly classes I lead various yoga workshops, retreats, teacher trainings and reiki trainings! I’m blessed to share this life with my four beautiful fairies.
