Spring Guest Teacher Anne Lowell from Asheville, NC

Visiting Asheville-area yoga teacher Anne Lowell will offer a 3-hour workshop, Yoga Beyond the Mat, at Breathe Yoga & Wellness on Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 11am to 2pm. Cost is $30 for Breathe Yoga & Wellness monthly Members, $35 for non-Members. Reserve your spot by following this link.

You may have heard the phrase “take your yoga off of the mat” but what does that really mean, and more importantly, how do you do it and what’s the point? This workshop will deepen your practice and grow your understanding of yoga through group discussion and self-reflection. You will learn how yoga asana can help bring you into alignment with your deepest values to enhance your relationships with others, break bad habits, and create greater happiness and enjoyment of life. You will leave feeling inspired, rejuvenated, and empowered to bring your yoga into your everyday life!

Workshop goals:

  1. To facilitate a shift in participants’ awareness of yoga as a purely physical practice to a practice that has the power to affect their lives off of the mat in an emotional and spiritual way
  2. To offer participants a variety of tools and techniques that may resonate with them and be helpful catalysts in taking their yoga practice “to the next level”. These tools/techniques that I will introduce are:
    • Journaling
    • Meditation 
    • (Self-Study)
  1. To have participants leave feeling:
    • Inspired
    • Empowered
    • Rejuvenated in bodymind & spirit

About Anne Lowell:

Anne is a yoga teacher and exercise physiologist based out of Asheville, NC. She is a recent graduate of the University of Michigan where she studied Kinesiology (the study of the human body and movement), and will complete her 500 hour yoga teacher training at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in June 2018. Anne finds true joy in helping others feel good, whether that be through movement, one-on-one coaching, or educating students on self-care practices.

Her favorite part about her work (besides getting to wear yoga pants to work and nerd-out on anatomy) is connecting with her students and planning thoughtful programs that inspire physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.

Anne’s classes, workshops, and trainings are informed by her background in kinesiology, her life experiences, and her daily yoga and meditation practice. She believes that by focusing on aligning the body in a way that supports its structures, one can find alignment in other areas of life. Anne’s philosophy of yoga, and physical exercise in general, is that it is incredibly rewarding and life-enhancing when approached in a balanced way. Thus, in a session with Anne, you can expect to experience both challenge AND ease, strength AND relaxation, in the hopes that you can find this balance in life off of the mat as well.
