Ashlee McDonald

Lead Facilitator of Yogagati School of Yoga

Aloha! I’m Ashlee!
My mission in every training, retreat, and class I hold is to welcome everyone from all walks of life, yogis, nonyogis, beginners, and seasoned practitioners.  With me, you will find a safe space and the tools needed to deepen the Innerstanding of self. 

My practices include yoga, mediation, reiki, pranayama, self care, mindfulness and a whole lot of dancing and fun! It’s always a practice, staying in the present and creating out of our truths.


Yes, I lead offerings but doesn’t mean I’m not the student. I’m constantly learning and my yoga practice is always shifting. I’m noticing that a very important piece of the yoga practice is staying in alignment with what feels good to you and your body.


Another one of my intentions is to offer a variety of modalities in the spaces I hold. Asana, yin, hatha, breath work, sound healing, reiki, energy work, self care workshops and more, so that you can explore what aligns with you. There’s a lot of layers in the yoga/energy world, and personally, I was overwhelmed when I first stepped into it. I studied and shifted into many practices until I created my own. It’s dedication to the self and to what feels good in your physical, emotional, spiritual body.

When you come into connection with me my heart is open to you being you. I will hold space for you to shift and move through anything and everything that you need to. Traumas, stories, pain, joy, learnings. I’m here to be a support and empowerment of your being.

I’m currently living on the Big Island of Hawai’i. Where I am teaching yoga, sharing reiki and living everyday with grace and ease. I am grateful to be living on this beautiful island and I want to share the magic it carries with you!

If Hawai'i has ever called you, I highly suggest listening to her call!
