WARM Shakti Flow


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

Warm Shakti Flow Shakti is the beautiful cosmic energy within the heart of all living things. In this class we awaken the shakti within by exploring a blend of asana, pranayama, and mudra which together cultivate equanimity, stillness, and a sense of deep peace. By practicing dharana (concentration) and viveka (discernment) while on the mat, we can begin to attain the second sutra in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras: "Yogas citta vrtti nirodhah" or as Ram Dass would say, "We quiet the mind so we can open the heart."

This moderate flow class is designed to offer modifications for beginners while honoring more advanced practitioners as we flow in a warm studio heated between 77-82 degrees.
