Asheville : Kitchin Place

Michael Johnson

Asheville Yoga Center, West Asheville Yoga

I love learning about neuroscience and the best behavioral interventions that enable optimal well-being. I have been a full-time yoga instructor and teacher trainer for over a decade. Although I am certi?ed in Jivamukti and have been to India to study Ashtanga with K. Pattabhi Jois, I mostly teach Bhakti Vinyasa and Yin. My aim is to integrate the traditional practices of selfless service, kirtan, ujjayi breathing, and meditation with the insights of Neuroscience and Positive Psychology.

To me yoga is not just what I do for an hour on a mat, rather it informs what I do all day and night. I aim to make my classes accessible to people who are just beginning and offer more challenging options for those with more experience.

Please join me if you want a practice that is engaging, playful and accompanied by music composed for yoga practice.
