I want to share experiences from where I have been and help create unforgettable memories for others. My love to wander became my passion and then my career.


Not all that wander are lost.


Owner & Agent


I have been in the travel business in one way or another for the last 35 years. Times have changed in the ways clients travel and book their vacations, but I still believe a personal approach is the best way to ensure the best vacation!

My love of Scuba Diving was what brought me to become the owner of Sand Dollar Tours and Travel. 


Sand Dollar and Travel has been in business for the last 28  years and I have been the owner for the last 20 years. Over these years I have been to many wonderful destinations and after making a list of my most favorite travel experiences, Yoga and active adventures have always been at the top of my list! With this knowledge, and experience I have curated the best resorts with friendly staff, supior amenities, wonderful food, and the best activities/adventures...

the overall best places to escape too!



Journey Ahead Yogi


Ashton first discovered yoga 17 years ago after a childhood of athletics and dance. She immediately fell in love with the practice and felt she had truly found her calling in life. While studying Fine Arts at Colorado State University, Ashton spent as much time as possible on her mat. “Yoga has saved my life.” Asana helped Ashton to stay grounded and stress-free during those tough years in college, so much so that after she graduated, she attended a 200 hour teacher training in Costa Rica. Since then, Ashton has taught in Northern California, Nevada, Oregon, as well as South and Central America. She has completed yin yoga training and studied Thai Chi. In November 2018, Ashton traveled to Northern India to complete her 300 hour training at Sattva Yoga Academy. There she received an intensive, in-depth education on advanced asana, Himalayan meditation, mantra, and Kundalini. Her most recent continuing education course took her to Lake Atitlan in Guatemala where she received training in sound ceremony facilitation known by many as sound healing.


Ashton designs her classes based on the energy of those attending and holds space for all levels and ages. “Yoga should be fun and transformative with all stages of life.” Not only has yoga aided in relieving stress for Ashton but it also opened the door to spirituality. She has learned that yoga is not only a physical practice but also a journey within.


My mission is to create a safe and sacred space for students to discover their infinite potential for healing themselves. Yoga is a spiritual and transformative journey that should be fun and available to all who are willing to go within and explore their bodies.

We believe in the words of
Sami Sunchild when you travel

When you travel take peacemaking, friendship, learning, and listening as your sacred, God given duty.
Refuse to carry with you an empty head or an empty heart.

Give thanks for every human encounter, every bird, animal, every plant that shares this gorgeous planet. Thank them, talk to them, nourish them.

Let no greed or selfish thoughts distract you. Let no anger, anxiety, or bitterness accompany you.

Travel unencumbered by too much stuff or by too many pre-conceived ideas.

Enter every new encounter with gratitude for another opportunity to learn and listen.
To be the happiest and best travel ambassador on earth.

Affirm the natural ability to balance out the injustices of the world.
Know that hate crimes will cease when we listen to each other, when selfishness and envy are replaced with compassion and even enemies become friends. Hold in you mind a vision of a peaceful world where travelers are the sowers and seeds of joy!
