Calm Your Mind


Yoga unites the mind, body, and soul in a way that eases tension, reduces stress and calms the mind. Regular practice will help develop present moment awareness and improve your breathing and outlook on life. When yoga is done well, you can learn to calm your nervous system and mind by simply applying proper breathing and meditation techniques. You will learn to respond instead of react to life's difficult situations.

Celebrate Life


Yoga is a great way to improve your overall health and performance in other physical activities. After a run, or heavy workout or mountain bike ride, yoga will balance your body's musculature if done properly. This can protect you from future injuries and leave you feeling fully engaged in your life.

Move It or Loose It


Yoga not only helps improve your body, but also helps with mindfulness and meditation. It is important to take a break from daily life in order to gain clarity. Focusing on your breath during practice is key to staying in tune with your mind and body and breathing habits. A regular pranayama practice calms your mind and soothes your body.

Event Details

weekend intensive: The power of now

 This event is a 300-Hour RYT Teacher Training module at the Asheville Yoga Center will be taught by Joe November 1st - 3rd.   Click Here to register and check the hours of each session. Being in the Now, or what we often call the present moment, is one of the most powerful practices of life (or yoga). Paradoxically, when we learn how to be in the Now, we deepen our ability to learn from the past and plan for the future. The book, The Power of Now, is a masterpiece that aligns beautifully with ancient yogic teachings. Instructor Joe Taft has spent several years contemplating and meditating on Tolle's powerful teachings and shares how this work connects to the practice of asana, meditation and yogic philosophy. Come spend the weekend with us as we explore these teachings through our asana practice, group discussion, and most importantly, grounding through the body. This event is open to all, though you will get the most out of them if you have some yoga experience. We consider these advanced yoga studies. You do not need to be working on 300-hour certification to take this training. Full attendance required for 300-hour credit.
