About Us



Join us for class twice weekly.  Classes are taught in the Mysore tradition, which allows the teacher to assist each student individually and dedicate one-on-one time to new students.  Everyone moves to the rhythm of their own breath.





We are a community of dedicated St. Louis area ashtanga practitioners creating a welcoming space for traditional ashtanga yoga practice.  We are and continue to be inspired by those teachers who came before us and all lineage holders of ashtanga yoga.



Ashley Ribaudo

Ashley began her Ashtanga  yoga journey in 2013, initially as a way to improve flexibility.  However, she quickly realized the practice brought so much more; clarity of mind, physical and mental strength and a strong sense of self.  Her professional background in physical therapy and yoga therapy influence her teaching style and approach to the practice. In 2020, Ashley will further her knowledge of the practice by participating in Taylor Hunt’s teacher mentorship program.   She is excited to share her passion for the practice with all students.

Kate Steer

Kate was introduced to Ashtanga in 2014 while sampling various yoga traditions. She was drawn to the challenge and repetition, as they produced both physical  health results and internal growth. Kate seeks opportunities to deepen her knowledge and practice both in intensives with visiting teachers and self-study. She is ever grateful for the SLAY community and their constant positive support of each other and is honored to assist in the Mysore room.
