Ashley Desaro

Ashley has immersed herself in the journey of self-exploration through Yoga. When she first stepped onto a mat and noticed the immediate release of tension in her physical body. As she continued taking classes, she noticed how much more relaxed her mind was and how to manage stress better. This realization sparked her to continue to learn about the philosophy of yoga. Ashley has completed continuing various trainings throughout the years to ensure the best experiences for her students. Through her passion of the practice she decided to commit to share what she has learned in hopes that her students learn to live their lives to the fullest. Ashley’s classes challenge students to step out of their comfort zone and to have breakthroughs for the mind, body, and soul. Both yoga and music connect us to universal energies! In the practice of yoga, your breath is like the music that you must merge into the flow of your practice. No matter what kind mood you are in whether you are sad, angry, anxious, frustrated or any other negative emotion when music starts playing you will immediately feel uplifted and that what Ashley hopes to bring into your practice through music and movement.

Ryan Doyle

Ryan found yoga during a time where he was immersed in finding the most functional way to create movement patterns using the mind and body. Discovering the freedoms of yoga took Ryan to a place unimaginable where he found deeper connection to the soul and spirit of a variety of yogic traditions. Eventually, leading him into vast new rituals of expansion through the connection of breath and movement. Using his background of mathematics and movement culture and bringing them to yoga, taking anatomy of the body and meditation to explore levels of consciousness to cross onto a physical plane in which to open and align the body and spirit. Ryan’s teaching style incorporates his asana obsession, meditation and life experiences and molds that with the of knowledge of Summer Quashie, Jerry Saluti, and Yulady Saluti under whom he did his 200 hour RYT to create a platform for all to come to open and align.

Wellness with Nature

Resting on 150 acres, River Mountain is bordered by Sweet Root Creek, Warrior Ridge and Tussey Mountain. River Mountain's stunning spaces are designed for reflection, mindfulness, and good vibrations on your self-care journey. Creekside yoga platforms, a restored barn turned wellness space, and the calm of nature make this the ideal destination for peace and wellness.

Located just a few hours from D.C., Baltimore, and Pittsburgh, in the mountains of Pennsylvania, River Mountain is remote yet easy to access.

History

Warrior Path

Running parallel to River Mountain's eastern ridge is Warriors Path, the great Iroquois Indian highway from Six Nations country, New York, to the Catawba country in the Carolinas. The historic path along Sweet Root Creek was one of the longest and most heavily traveled land routes in eastern North America, connecting Indigenous peoples over hundreds of miles.

The Underground Railroad

Black Valley was an active route along the Underground Railroad. Local histories principally credit four, free black residents with leading the aid network in this area: Rev. John Fidler, Elias Rouse, Joseph Crawley, and James Graham. Just to the south of the River Mountain property are 13 unmarked graves of enslaved people who died traveling the route to freedom.
