During the min-1970s, as a member of a remote yoga community in the hills of West Virginia, she wrote and edited for their journal, Brijbasi Spirit. However, by the end of the decade, internal politics had become increasingly repressive and, in an effort to control the press, the resident guru ordered the editor's murder. Soon after that, the entire press group left the society and went into hiding. Asha resurfaced in Ashland Oregon and, in the mid-1980s founded the letterpress operation, SkyRiver Press. In 1987, she sold the presses but kept the name, switched to digital and began publishing her zine, Reddog Review. In 2003, after five issues, she suspended that title indefinitely. Some of her other publications include Driftwork and Ash Canyon Review.
