About Salty Souls Yoga Studio, St. Petersburg, FL

Danielle Kelly, Owner

I’m honored to be able to hold space and witness someone making the commitment to deepen their understanding of self and life.

A gifted healer, my goal is to help you in creating a new relationship with your physical, energy body & emotional body. It is through this awareness, we have the power to heal ourselves.

Each class is alignment based and infused with instructions in traditional and modern styles. You’ll gain knowledge using Mudras, mantras and your own personal self expression. You’ll soak it all up with a long guided meditation using sound therapy, Reiki and/or beautiful music.

My goal is to safely guide you to gain the needed wisdom to know how to heal your relationship with your body, alleviate pain, eat more mindfully, cultivate body appreciation, kindness & compassion, clear stuck energy, release what doesn’t belong to you and create energetic shifts so you connect with your most divine, radiant self.

Ashley Johnson

Hi I’m Ashley! I’m a Pittsburgh native turned St Pete local with a passion for empowering others. I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and in 2018, I felt called to expand my practice and go deeper within, as I was struggling privately through a deep wave of grief. My yoga training helped me heal in many ways and offered tools I didn’t know were inside of me. With overwhelming gratitude, it is a passion of mine and an honor to share this gift with others. I teach private and group settings all around the Tampa Bay Area. When I’m not on my mat you can find me behind the chair in my salon suite. Whether I am empowering others through movement or assisting in enhancing outer beauty— it’s my mission to provide a safe space where everyone can show up exactly as they are. Ashley teaches an all levels class with creative vinyasa sequencing, incorporating postures from all the asana families. We’ll start out slow and create some heat as we build our flow. Expect focus on breath work, a mixture of balance, long holds, and strength.
