Ashley Akhavan

Dance and movement have been Ashley’s greatest joys in life ever since her parents put her in ballet class at age 2. She holds a B.A. in Dance from SDSU, where she studied Kinesiology, Anatomy, Pilates, and Pedagogy. Ashley has been dancing professionally with local companies, LITVAKdance and Bella Lux Entertainment, for the last 7 years, performing locally and nationally. In 2022, she received a M.A. in Corporate Communication from the University of San Francisco and now works remotely as a Communication Specialist for a business consulting agency based in San Francisco. Ashley is Barre Above certified and has been teaching fitness classes, including Barre, Pilates, and HIIT, in San Diego for 10 years. She religiously integrates the importance of proper form, breathing coordination, and modifications to accommodate limitations. When Ashley is not working, you can find her at the dog park with her fur baby, Rufus, or taking fitness and dance classes for herself and to stay actively engaged in her movement practices.
