The most important thing is to start with an appropriate class. There is nothing more discouraging than jumping in over your head to start with. Many new-comers to yoga, especially fit people, think it's just stretching and will start with a mid level or advanced class. They get their butt kicked and don't come back. Please start with a beginner or basic class. Beginning Students, elders, pregnant women or those with injuries should start with a beginner, gentle, yoga basics, back care or level 1 class. see our full class schedule here

You Don't Have to be Flexible!
That is probably the biggest reason we hear why people don't try out or stick with yoga. It's not about flexibility folks. Sure flexibility may help or may make it look better, but it's not key. What is key is being present. Following your breath, quieting your mind and conditioning your body. If you make yoga a habit the flexibility will come. The great news is a lot comes with that flexibility, like strength, peace, joy and a sense of wellbeing you just can't find in any other "exercise." And besides flexible, you don't have to be young, healthy, fit, cover model beautiful or even look good in yoga tights. We welcome all with open arms. Our yoga students range from kids to those in their 80s and 90s. Our students range from professional athletes to those with very serious illnesses. The wonderful thing about yoga is it helps all these people to live a better life.
It Won't Break Your Wallet Either
It's been our goal since we started offering yoga classes in 1997 to make yoga affordable for all. It's our service. We'd rather see many people benefiting from a yoga practice than make a profit offering classes. We've got classes for everybody. The following are some of the ways to save on yoga classes at the Asheville Yoga Center.
Yoga For All
If you are new to our center, WELCOME, we're glad you've come. Here are some tips to help you out.
No pre registration necessary.. Just drop in a few minutes early to get acquainted with the studio.
Mats and props are provided, although owning your own mat is strongly recommended. We sell the largest variety of yoga accessories in town.
PLEASE BE ON TIME!.. All classes begin and end promptly. Come a few minutes early and unwind before class. It's unfair to those in the full classes to have to move their mat after class has begun, because you've come late. Please be on time!
Be prepared to practice barefoot with loose/stretchy comfortable clothes for all classes.
For your comfort do not eat a large meal 2 hours prior to a class. Bring your own water if attending a HOT class.
Please do not wear heavy cologne, perfumes, essential oils or large jewelry to class. Your classmates also really appreciate if you don't come with strong body odor.
If you have a heart condition or any other serious ailment, please let your instructor know BEFORE class begins.
HOT yoga and some dynamic classes are heated to 80 degrees and hotter. Please bring your own mat and a towel, also if you use them bring your own blanket and bolster.

Remember, breathe! and smile. Yoga should feel good.
