Asia Dorsey is a nourishment-based educator and bioregional herbalist in Denver, Colorado. She attended New York University where she studied sociology, environmental studies and food as an undergraduate and nonprofit management in her graduate coursework in the Wagner School of Public Service in 2014. She completed her permaculture teacher certification and apprenticeship at The Permaculture Research Institute of Australia that same year. She applied these tools in developing regenerative fertilization systems at Navdanya International in India and during her time apprenticing and learning the art of traditional food with Kay Baxter at the Koanga Institute in New Zealand.
After healing her depression though the power of bones and bugs, Asia founded the Five Points Fermentation Company in 2016 as model of regenerative, cooperatively organized business. After using botanical remedies for mental health she supported the establishment of the Ancestral Herbalism Healing Collective bringing in diverse speakers and teachers from around Colorado leading with the notion that everything we need is already here. This introduction led to deeper work with her herbal mentor Susun Weed and her practice in community herbalism. Asia deepened her health work completing her yoga teacher training in 2015. In 2019, with her belief in the ability of workers operatives to heal our economic system, Asia co-founded the Satya Yoga Cooperative for People of Color.
