Meet Our Teachers: Nancy Hatton & Ashley Prazych

Nancy Hatton: Embracing Yoga as a Way of Life

Nancy’s journey with yoga began in 2008, but it wasn’t until 2013, when she became an empty nester, that she delved deeper into her practice. Finding solace and inspiration at Hot Spot Power Yoga in Jacksonville, Florida, Nancy immersed herself in the community and embarked on a transformative journey. From meditation workshops to 40 Days to a Personal Revolution, Nancy’s thirst for knowledge and growth led her to pursue her 200RYT in the fall of 2017.

Since then, Nancy has continued to expand her yoga career, acquiring certifications in Yin Yoga, Yoga plus HIIT, Trauma-Informed Yoga, The Art of Assisting, and her 300RYT. Alongside her husband, she co-owns a private Montessori school, where she integrates yoga into the curriculum for staff and students alike. Nancy believes that the tools she’s acquired through yoga perfectly complement the ethos of Montessori education.

With a spirit of adventure and a deep love for yoga, Nancy is excited to share her passion and knowledge through retreats around the world, infusing each experience with creativity and inspiration.

Ashley Prazych: Healing and Empowerment Through Yoga

For Ashley, yoga came into her life during a season of tumultuous transitions in 2016. Amidst relationship changes, career shifts, and a sense of upheaval, she found solace on her mat at Hot Spot Power Yoga. What began as a 30-day trial blossomed into a profound love affair with yoga, culminating in her RYT-200 certification in 2018.

Beyond the physical postures, Ashley discovered a path to healing, inner peace, and self-acceptance through yoga. It became a gateway to meditation, self-inquiry, energy work, and sound healing, empowering her to embrace her authentic self, deepen her relationships, pursue her passions, and attract abundance into her life.

When she’s not teaching or practicing yoga, you’ll find Ashley exploring the great outdoors with her senior pup, Sadie, in their beloved sprinter van. Her love for nature infuses her teaching style, which includes restorative and yin yoga, as well as sound healing sessions rooted in her Reiki Level 1 attunement.
