Yoga Loft Tucson was founded and opened by luck in November 2021 when the opportunity arose for Ashlee McDougall. At first, she was cautious of the idea, but she knew if she didn’t leap, the opportunity might not rise again. The problem was that she knew she needed a partner, but her friend and peer, Jackie Whately, was opening her studio, and she didn’t want to ask anyone else.

After six months in business, Ashlee tried to play it cool when Jackie told her that her plans had fallen through, and she wasn’t opening her studio. Let’s just say Ashlee didn’t play it cool, and they’ve been partners ever since!

Since then, Yoga Loft has thrived, expanded, and relocated to our current location in West Tucson. 

Ashlee and Jackie have combined their 25 years of teaching experience and shared passion to create a welcoming studio that offers a wide array of yoga classes, kirtans, workshops, and a yoga teacher training program.

Not only does Ashlee love teaching yoga, but she’s also our marketing director and is the face behind our social media. Ashlee is also passionate about creating an inclusive studio environment because she was born with a lung disease –and a breath-based practice can be challenging for her. She hopes that her input can help make yoga more accessible. That’s why you won’t find any potentially aggravating fragrances or smoke in the studio, and why we’ve invested in state-of-the-art air filtration systems!

Jackie is our lead teacher and runs our yoga teacher training program. She has over 18 years of bodywork experience and with this depth of anatomical knowledge, she is an expert in meeting you where you’re at so you can enjoy an embodied practice. She also enjoys teaching private yoga sessions for those with injuries and other various physical limitations.

Their goal is to create a yoga studio that empowers you to feel at home in your body while honoring the rich traditions of yoga.

Yoga Loft is an amazing studio! I have been doing yoga for about 13 years now and when I started taking classes here I had no idea that I had so much more to learn. Each teacher has taught me new poses and different variations I had never practiced before. It has really inspired me to take more classes at this studio. The energy is uplifting and calm. I love the variation of classes offered, from yin to vinyasa 2. Ashlee and Jackie are phenomenal owners, so much so that I have decided to dive into yoga teacher training with them. I am beyond grateful for their dedication and skills set that they are bringing to the training. This is the place to practice. Bring yourself and your mat. You won't be disappointed!!
