Ashleigh Stewart's academic studies in wellness started in a bachelor of psychology. The scientific approach alone did not satisfy her curiosity surrounding the human mind and emotions, and so she switched her focus toward spiritual psychotherapy, holistic healthcare and metaphysical science.
After years spent in studying various aspects of holistic healthcare, and energy medicine, as well as research and self-inquiry, Ashleigh achieved a doctorate degree in metaphysical counselling. Her concentration was therapeutic yoga and philosophy, and how it can influence healing. During her studies she researched the effects of stimulant drugs, and the use of yoga as a natural healing therapy to help children diagnosed with behavioral disorders. Her work has recently evolved to working with children diagnosed with cancer. This work inspired her to write and publish two books on yoga, mindfulness and emotional intelligence for children.
Ashleigh has practiced meditation & yoga for over 18 years, and has been teaching for over 10. She has completed several different yoga teacher training programs to support her work including 'The Bali Method' of Hatha Yoga and Vedantic Philosophy with Dr Bali of Yoga Bliss Institute Montreal. Ashleigh has taught many different types of yoga, spiritual development and personal growth workshops including meditation for martial arts students, meditation and personal growth for high school students, yoga: the spiritual path, and understanding your chakras and the essence of color for healing and personal growth.
As well Ashleigh has a strong background of teaching kids yoga, fertility yoga, prenatal and mom and baby yoga. In the past she has worked with visually impaired children at the Montreal Association for the Blind teaching yoga for kids. Ashleigh is also a member of the Canadian Yoga Alliance, Reflexology Association of Canada and the International Metaphysical Ministry.
Other relevant training includes the study of several different holistic health therapies at NHC Institute in Montreal such as Spiritual Psychotherapy, Holistic Biochemistry, Foot & Hand Reflexology and Reconnective Healing, as well as Thai yoga massage at the 'Lotus Palm School of Thai Massage'.
Ashleigh currently resides with her family in Abbotsford, British Columbia, and is the proud mother of a young boy and girl.
