Isabel began practicing yoga after a prolonged foot injured forced her to take a break from her training as a contemporary ballet dancer. Using yoga as an education on emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness, she was able to recover from her injury and pursued her RYT certification. She now holds her 500hr RYT and has been teaching since the summer of 2016. Her style as an instructor is inspired by a passion for movement and self discovery, incorporating alignment techniques as taught by her teachers Darren Rhodes, Stephani Lindsey, Sam Rice, Christina Sell, and Noah Maze. With a passion in women’s health education and empowerment, Isabel also works in Asheville as a birth and postpartum doula. She’s currently studying to be a Lamaze childbirth educator, an Ayurvedic wellness counselor, and a Khalsa Way prenatal teacher. Using asana, pranayama, and meditation as an introduction into the practice of yoga, she hopes to insight in her students a thirst for deeper inquisition into what the practice has to offer.

|Saturday September 23||5:30 - 6:45 pm||*Gentle Restorative & Yin|
|Monday September 25||7:15 - 8:15 am||WARM Power Flow|
*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.
