Ainslie discovered yoga in 2005 in her high school library. She threw herself into the study of yoga at a local vinyasa studio and began working behind the desk shortly after. She fell in love with the challenging, graceful movements and has not taken a serious break ever since. In 2011 she completed her first 200-hour teacher training with Adi Amar and Angela Tong.
Since then she has been teaching yoga full time in Jackson Hole, completing an additional 300-hour training at Teton Yoga Shala and attending many workshops. She considers herself very lucky to have studied under Eddie Modestini, Barbara Benagh, Eddy Marks, Mary Obendorfer and most influentially Adi Amar.
Ainslie spent several years exclusively studying vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga but after a hip injury in 2013 she realized the capacity for the practice to truly heal the body in ways she couldn’t imagine. She began teaching more toward populations with injuries and chronic pain and feels so much more fulfilled in her day to day work teaching private students and supported group classes.
