Ask a Question
“In a society obsessed with fad diets and food 'tricks' I had become confused and unsure about what was 'good' for my body. Ashley helped me establish a healthy relationship with food in a physical, mental, and emotional way. As I clear away my very loud emotional blocks connected with food I am finding that my body will tell me exactly what it needs if I listen. I am relearning how to communicate with my body. I have found that working externally on my food choices while simultaneously looking internally at the root of my food fears is leading me more and more towards a harmonious balance in my life. Working with Ashley has been invaluable in improving the overall quality of my life.”

”As a student at The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, I have had Ashley as a teacher for two subjects. I can honestly say that I have enjoyed her classes the most, as she passionately contributes an intuitive exploration of the human experience. She creatively combines knowledge with inner wisdom. Ashley's vulnerability in expressing her own fears and sharing her transformation is nothing less than courageous and inspires courage in others. Through her teaching, I have learned to trust my own intuition and embrace my deepest fears as my greatest gifts. I am so grateful to have received her light and contribution. Thank you Ashley!”

”Ashley’s approach to her subject is stimulating and thought-provoking. She is engaging and personable. Ashley presentation is fun, while her approach to her subject is compelling. She invites us to consider our relationship with food in a way that stimulates thought and personal reflection. I cannot think of anyone who would not enjoy her workshops or benefit from her insights.”
