Barbara Schauer, Founder, ERYT500 

 

 

See the Anahata practice on YouTube here.

 

 She lived with anxiety and depression since childhood.  Sometimes it eased back - sometimes months and years were lost.  In 2001 Barbara walked into her first Anahata yoga class and met her teacher Ana Costa.  Barbara had always had a wonder and respect for yoga and had practiced here and there and on her own.  She lived in her mind rather than her body but she had an inborn ground of spiritual life that had already led her to India and into art as her life’s work.   Read more...

Emilia Visek

 

Emilia completed her 200 hour teacher training at Asheville Yoga Center in August 2018. She is following our Continuous Education Program focused on Anahata Yoga lead with careful supervision of Barbara Schauer.

 

Emilia enjoys practicing and improving her yoga for alignment, stretch, restorative, prenatal, and postnatal. Her focus is on strengthening the mind and body to correct daily imbalances. Her current interest is posture improvement for diastasis recti condition improvement and of cyclists. It was her own effort to help the poor posture of her athletic cyclist husband. Diastasis recti is one of the many consequences of a poor posture and consists of excessive separation of the rectus abdominus muscles. Cyclists have strong lower bodies, and neglected and misaligned upper bodies - and so do many of us who spend time at computers and steering wheels! She loves to follow the Anahata path to reach an improved posture. Read more...

Eryn Murman, RYT200

 

Warm 26 for All Yoga incorporates two breathing exercises and 26 postures incorporating balance, strength and flexibility.  Each posture stretches and strengthens specific muscles, ligaments, and joints needed for the next posture.  This style of yoga stimulates the organs, glands and nerves, moving fresh oxygenated blood throughout the body.  Sweating during warm yoga can help you detoxify as you reduce water retention and sweat out toxins.  By drinking plenty of water, your gastrointestinal, urinary, and cardiovascular systems work better, naturally detoxifying tissues and cells and clearing waste more readily from the body.  All levels are welcome and modifications always available!  You may like to bring a towel to place over your mat and bottle of water for your practice.

The new Basics class with Eryn is a gentle and welcoming approach to the yoga postures and flow. Wonderful for beginners or anyone looking for a refresher and deeper understanding of alignment and breath.  All are welcome!

Jessica Falcon

Trained as a lawyer, Jessica left her legal career after seven years of practice to embark on a spiritual pilgrimage to Europe. The journey took her deeper within than she ever imagined. Her body became her compass. As it spoke to her on the yoga mat, she discovered an innate connection between her body and her beliefs, as well as the power to change them both.

 

Currently, she is writing a book which interweaves ancient feminine mysteries with her own modern inner quest. She is also grateful to be part of the farm family at Herb Mountain Farm, where her love of the Earth, herbs, movement and magic meet.

Leslie Hayes

 

 

 

I got up the courage to try my first yoga class in 1999, while I was a graduate student, and stumbled upon ashtanga yoga a couple of years later.  In the beginning,  I was looking for some stress reduction and to improve my flexibility.  Over time, in addition to the very real physical benefits of this practice, I came to realize the healing and spiritual benefits, and these are what has kept me coming back to my mat day after day and year after year. I love the completeness and transformative power of the Ashtanga system.

Randi Janelle

 

RYT200 | Randi has practiced yoga from age fifteen and relishes the gifts it has bestowed on her life. She is a performance poet, novelist, and a photographer among other things, and views yoga as a creative manifestation for the body, mind, and spirit. She enjoys creating poetry through awareness, movement, breath, and gratitude.


For a few years she hobbled on crutches from a ligament injury to her knee, but has healed it from yoga asanas and listening to the lessons that injury had to teach. Yoga Inbound combines a few styles: Ashtanga Vinyasa, Iyengar, and Anusara, with emphasis on stabilizing energy, alignment, and heart opening. Randi focuses on the inward poetry of the body - what is it telling us that we may be ignoring? Perhaps simply that it is miracle! She believes like any art, yoga is best interpreted by intuition, visualization, and being present. Read more...

Steve Mucciarone (Dass Tiaga)

 

Steven’s spiritual name is Dass Tiaga, which means one who, having given up all worldly attachments, serves the Divine in all with the highest and most heartfelt consciousness. He believes that Kundalini is the diamond from which all fractals of God Consciousness were created, and considers Kundalini the jewel of his heart from which all potentials and realities are formed.  He is thrilled to share this practice to help other people as a guide to their own potential and awareness, to help burn away their karma so they can live happy, healthy, and holy lives.

 

Kundalini yoga:

Kundalini Yoga is the Yoga of awareness.  Yogi Bhajan, the Master of Kundalini Yoga, delivered these teachings to help make our lives easier in the dark times of the Aquarian Age, which we are- by many people, believed to be living in now.  Kundalini Yoga involves internal work by facing our subconscious blockages and finding ways to break through them in order to heal.  This Yoga will awaken one to their full potential in life.
