Asheville Yoga Center Class Schedule


Amy Sims

Amy Sims

Amy Kalyn Sims, a native of Florida, is a 500-hour registered yoga instructor and professional photographer living in Asheville, NC. After graduating from the Savannah College of Art & Design in 2002, Amy moved to New York City to pursue a career in photography. While living in the big city she found she was seeking something more and decided to try yoga. What she discovered was a true path toward health and contentment.

After practicing yoga for several years, Amy completed the Sankalpah Yoga 200-hour teacher training with Mary Dana Abbott & Isaac Peña and began teaching yoga in NYC. After teaching for 2 years, she decided to further deepen her practice through the Laughing Lotus 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training, studying with Dana Flynn, Alison Cramer, Raganauth Cappo, Elena Brower, Sadie Nardini and a host of other amazing teachers.

In late 2011, Amy’s family moved from NYC to Asheville. She began teaching at the Asheville Yoga Center in January of 2012. In 2017, she completed the AYC 300-hour Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training where she learned the therapeutic essentials of yoga to work with stress, injuries and illness.

Amy comes from an artistic background and tries to bring this innovative aspect to the mat. Her classes incorporate a creative vinyasa flow threaded with breath, meditation, mantras, and a passion for music. She is honored to be a part of the Asheville Yoga Center family and enjoys serving the Asheville community. For more on Amy, please visit: http://www.ashevilleartfamily.com/

*Recommended for Beginners 

  • Gentle indicates the class is not vigorous, but slow and soothing, perfect for those wanting a more relaxed and softer practice. Also excellent for beginners, the elderly, and pregnant women.

  • Power indicates a vigorous practice that will challenge and energize you with its focus on building strength and concentration as you flow through powerful, flowing sequences. This type of class is meant to challenge you and your existing practice, make you sweat, have some fun, and try and inversion (or three!). Not recommended for beginners who do not have a basic knowledge of yoga postures.

  • Warm classes allow the body’s tissues to soften more deeply, as the room is kept between 80-89 degrees.

  • Hot classes involve a dynamic and challenging practice in a room heated to 90 degrees or above. You will sweat, so please bring your own mat, water bottle, and towel. First time students are discouraged from attending HOT classes, as they tend to be fast-paced, and are meant for those already familiar with basic postures.
