*Bhakti Flow Into Stillness


at Asheville Yoga Center (211 South Liberty Street
Asheville, NC 28801 Asheville, NC 28806)

Bhakti combines the chanting of universal mantras with the grace of vinyasa flow yoga. Class usually opens and closes with a musical style of group chanting called Kirtan, sometimes accompanied by instruments, sometimes voices only.

Flow & Yin
is a sweet blend of flow and yin. About half of class uses a breath-based vinyasa flow to build strength and flexibility, challenging your balance and concentration, and harnessing that energy to promote inner stillness and peace. The other half of class finds you down on the mat holding yin poses for longer periods of time, targeting the connective tissues of the body to help release deeply stored tension. The two styles together are amazingly transformative.
