Ashlynn Howe: Ashlynn is a school counselor, barre instructor, wife, and founder of Be Well Barre, a live barre studio focused on finding joy in movement to support a well mind and strong body. Ashlynn became barre instructor certified shortly after beginning her own journey of sobriety in 2017. She launched Be Well Barre in May of 2021, which livestreams multiple classes weekly and hosts The Recovery Barre, a donation-based class that combines a recovery meeting with an express barre class to bring wellness and connection to the sober community. Ashlynn wrote programming for The Recovery Barre to welcome anyone who self-identifies as in recovery, is practicing sobriety, or is sober-curious. Ashlynn holds a Master’s of Education in School Counseling as well as multiple group fitness and barre certifications. She enjoys sharing the mental health benefits of movement with others in sobriety as well as with her students. Her long-term goal is to grow The Recovery Barre into a credentialed program to continue serving the recovery community through movement.
Gabrielle Baty: Gabrielle Baty was born and raised in Lansing, Michigan. She is a 30-year-old mama to a handsome 7-year-old boy and beautiful 4-year-old girl. Gabby is a 200-hour certified yoga teacher and licensed skin therapist. She is a domestic violence survivor turned thriver, spreading awareness as a member of the domestic violence speakers bureau and helping others thrive through the healing powers of yoga.
Gary Boucher: I was a reader further back than I can now remember; but writing began for me, I think, in fourth grade, when I found a poem called “Where the Wild Geese Are.” I felt for the first time the power of words to shape mood and help us see the world in a new way. I wrote the first of what is now over a thousand poems that year. From there it was Marvel Comics leading me to science fiction and fantasy, to Isaac Asimov and Lord of the Rings, which took me to Shakespeare. All of these influences combined in me, to make the clarity of science, the grace and elegance of poetry, and the boundless imagination of science fiction the target I’m always aiming for in my writing–a goal that’s never perfectly reached, but where the fun lies in trying to come closer and closer.
Rachel Brady: Rachel Brady, also known as @shotstoshakes, is a woman who recovers out loud, a mental health advocate, and a storyteller enthusiast. She describes herself as a former Los Angeles party girl who found sobriety in her 20s and seeks to build connection through writing. Touching on topics like sobriety, perfectionism, people-pleasing, and the occasional touch of tough love, she is passionate about uplifting people in recovery, people who are coming to terms with their healing, and everyone in between. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband and rescue puppy, taking it one day (and coffee) at a time.
Founded in 2017, Soberocity’s mission has always been clear: we want to connect people living a sober life with like-minded individuals through online meet-ups, live streams, and more. We want to change the perception of what it means to live a sober life and make it achievable and attainable for everyone suffering, or who has suffered, from addiction. Soberocity also believes in helping our community to stay sober and to pursue a sober life by offering sober resources and a unique opportunity to connect with other sober individuals. For us, sobriety is a spectrum and we fully embrace all looking to join our community, for together we are infinitely strong.
