Ashley Spence

Yoga Instructor

Ashley is the creator of the first Wanderlust Yoga Studio, which she opened in Austin in 2012. The studio is a partner of Wanderlust Festival, a global yoga, music and nature retreat that takes place in some of the most beautiful locations in the world.
Ashley’s teaching style has been influenced by all of her teachers on this path so far. She studied extensively under Christina Sell and Gioconda Parker, and more recently graduated from the Wanderlust Yoga Austin Advanced Training Program under the guidance of her teachers Kate Waitzkin and Leah Cullis. Off her mat, her two beautiful children inspire her to live selflessly and show up fully for others.
She fell in love with the practice during a very dark time in her life when she could barely cope with the wounds of trauma from her past. Today, she wholeheartedly believes yoga saved her life. Not only does she strive to create a safe space for students to come to find their own healing, but she also hopes to help students tap in to their inner warrior, courage and strength. Ashley is passionate about curating playlists that sync seamlessly to the flow of her classes. Her eclectic taste in yoga music ranges from Erykah Badu, to Willie Nelson, to Led Zeppelin, Ray Charles, the Beatles and Bob Marley.
Ashley is immensely grateful to the Wanderlust Festival, her family, and her incredible yoga tribe family for making this dream of Wanderlust Yoga Austin a reality. She hopes you enjoy this studio made with heart and soul, hard work and an insane amount of love.
