Born and raised in Turkey, Ayse is a San Francisco based artist, data scientist and yoga teacher with a passion of creating beauty in her surroundings. In all aspects of life, she loves working with complexity; and finding clarity, truth and balance in it.
Since her early 20s, Ayse used embodiment practices to gain deeper awareness of how she moves in the world and then to express and transform her own experiences. In 2018, she felt the need to expand this practice and completed 200-hour Lotus Vinyasa Teacher Training with Jasmine Tarkeshi. During her studies, she felt inspired by yin and restorative traditions where deep listening of the body is enabled. She shortly after received her Restorative Teacher training and reiki placement from Janine Trinidad.
Ayse continues to feel liberated and inspired by timeless teachings of yoga, and bows to her teachers for paving the way. Through her practice she seeks to inspire others and bring more strength, ease and gentleness to her students’ days.
