Caitlin Van Hecke
Caitlin loves to ponder the question, “What if we started living yoga and practicing life?” Continuously connecting the dots between what happens on your mat with what happens off is what propels her to share her passion with others. She received her teacher training from Asheville Yoga Center in 2008, and in the ensuing years has continued to study and cultivate her knowledge and skills through an array of modalities and teachers. She also specializes in kids yoga, Pilates, and foam rolling. Her kinesthetic approach to teaching combines focused attention on the breath with fluid movement, so the physical practice develops into a moving meditation. She recently returned to AVL from DC, where she taught full-time for many years, and is excited to be back in Asheville where her yoga path began.

*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.
