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.

The Art of Teaching Yoga

Asheville Yoga Center

January 20 - 24, 2020 300-hour YA credit All Levels Welcome!

In this training we will learn how to refine our teaching language, sequencing, and imagination in order to a create theme-based class. This 5-day workshop will show you how to align your core beliefs with your teaching, providing you with the confidence to plan inspiring yoga classes with your own unique themes. We are often afraid to take ourselves out of our comfort zones and embrace challenges. However, the key to a successful yoga class is learning how to convey inspiring themes that not only uplift the students, but also allow the teacher to continue to grow. This understanding of how our belief in the outcome of our success directly affects our performance is what educators, teachers, and neurologists are now calling growth mindset. Join me to learn more about how to teach an inspiring, theme-based class and how to connect your theme to the actions and alignment principles of yoga.
