Yoga for Runners & Athletes

I've been an avid runner for most of my life and I am excited to share how yoga has supported my running and my body!

This is a 4 week series - Thursday evenings from 5:30 pm to 6:45 pm at Asheville Yoga Center, running through the month of December.

Yoga restores balance and symmetry to the body, making it the perfect complement to running. While runners might be drawn to yoga to deal with specific issues – like improving flexibility or helping with an injury – yoga can also strengthen your body, increase running times, help with breath capacity and balance muscles underutilized by running. In short, yoga can totally boost your running!

No previous yoga experience is needed for this class and the class is open to all. Anyone looking to stay injury-free and increase flexibility, strength, and peace of mind will enjoy this series.

All levels are welcome! The cost is $60 for the series and you can register at Asheville Yoga Center online!

Ring in Love

Join Sierra and Luna Ray for a yogic flow of creation, meditation and live music to manifest your intentions for 2018. The yogic numerology for 2018 is 11 or Embodiment. This is the state of no duality, divine vision and the flow of truth, within and without. In our time together, we’ll create the seed of a vision board and then practice a sequence to strengthen the Embodiment of our hopes and dreams for 2018. This is a gentle offering, appropriate for all levels.

This workshop is an annual event and early registration is encouraged to reserve your space. 

The cost is $40 and registration is available at Asheville Yoga Center

10-Day The Subtle Body with Kia Miller

Radiant Body is a holistic approach to yoga that has its roots in the ancient Kundalini and Tantric traditions. This path is dedicated to helping people live with greater awareness so they can help others do the same. The practice offers a potent combination of asana, pranayama, intelligent use of the bandhas, and a profound understanding of the subtle body. This includes knowledge of the koshas, kleshas, gunas, visualization, use of kriya, yogic history, and philosophy.

The Radiant Body yoga teacher training combines the technical precision of Ashtanga and Iyengar with the subtle dimensions of Kundalini. The training is a comprehensive, life-affirming process that explores the healing and transformational practices of yoga, and empowers students on their personal path and as a teacher. Come and initiate an effortless flow of wisdom, so that teaching becomes not so much a simple regurgitation of what has been learned, but a sharing from one’s own experience and an inner place of connection and peace.
