Ashton Cannon Graham is an avid yoga practitioner with over 25 years of experience in alignment-based yoga and yin yoga. She thrives on empowering individuals to progress towards improved health in all areas of life, utilizing yogic tools and techniques including postures (asanas), breathwork (pranayama), meditation, and yoga philosophy for improved physical, mental, and spiritual health.
Her yoga journey started earnestly over two decades ago with El Paso Iyengar instructor Carol Carnes Johnson; she now practices regularly with the NYC Iyengar Institute and Dr. Loren Fishman. In 2015, during her 200-hour yoga training she discovered and fell in love with yin yoga. For Ashton, yin opened energy channels (meridians) and blood flow within her body eliminating decades of aches and pain from numerous horse accidents. Over the years she has studied with the yin yoga pioneers: Paul Grilley, Bernie Clark and Sara Powers. Ashton has completed her 850-hour training to become a certified yoga therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and only has a few hours of practicum to complete. Ashton is an accomplished equestrian following her life’s passion; writes a weekly column for the Las Cruces Sun News on maintaining balance in life and serves on the Dell Telephone Co-op/Delcom Board of Directors. She lives on a large ranch in West Texas.
