Warm Hour of Power | Open


This class is taught by:

Alyssa Winfield

I was first drawn to yoga in 2007 when I saw my friend hold a flawless scorpion pose. Coming from a dancing background, I was immediately hooked on the physicality and acrobatic aspects of the asana practice. It wasn’t long after starting my yoga journey that I realized how much yoga went beyond the physical postures. Every day I am amazed how yoga has transformed every aspect of my life - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I truly believe that if every person practiced yoga, the world would be drastically different. With this belief, and my desire to share my passion for yoga, I completed my 200-hour teacher training from Asheville Yoga Center in 2016 and am currently working on my 300-hour teacher training at Longwave Yoga. As an instructor, I try to bring joy and laughter to every class and encourage my students to try new and challenging things both on and off the mat. My mantra: Do the yoga - Be happy - Make the world a better place.

Rachel Taylor

Rachel, a 500-hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher, began studying yoga in 2006 while pursuing a degree in theater at Skidmore College in New York. Her first yoga class was designed for theater and dance majors as a way to enhance performance elements, but she was immediately drawn to the profound transformative benefits of the practice. Through breath and movement, Rachel started to uncover a stillness of the mind and a sense of empowerment that she strives to deepen every day, both on and off the mat. In July 2012, she completed the 200-hour teacher training program with the Marianne Wells Yoga School in Costa Rica. She completed the Longwave Yoga 300-hour advanced teacher training program in November 2016. Forever learning and always a student first, Rachel is deeply grateful for her many teachers who inspire her every day. Students can expect a unique and challenging vinyasa practice that incorporates an understanding of alignment, sequencing, and patience. Through a creative flow and a spirit of playfulness, Rachel challenges others to compassionately explore their own limitless potential.
This one-hour class is for the yogi on the go! Hour or Power is a powerful and playful style of yoga that links movement and breath. This class focuses on strength, balance, core, intervals, and stretching. You will leave feeling energized and a little sweaty! The room will be heated, 85-95 degrees, keeping the body supple and promoting flexibility as it boosts the cardiovascular system. All ability levels are welcome, as there will be modifications, options and specific alignment cues given throughout the class that appeal to all levels of practitioners. It is highly recommended that brand new yogis partake in the beginner and/or basic level classes before joining an open-level class.
