First Timers

What you need to know about our classes.

Namaste | Namaskarasana | Heartfull Meditation Purna Yoga Asheville, NC

Every class begins with guided Heartfull Meditation and the Opening Series to center the heart and mind, and open the body for practice. Classes may be built on a particular theme, either anatomical or philosophical, or cater to the specific needs of the students’ bodies at that moment.

 

Throughout class, students are given anatomic direction in asana (poses) with focus on alignment for safety and precision as well as energetic direction to deepen the spirit/mind/body connection. Letitia gives clear demonstrations of poses and modifications, shares yogic philosophy and guides students into deepening the connection to their True Self.

 

Never taken a yoga class before? Concerned about injuries or limitations? We believe every pose can be modified to fit a wide range of abilities. We also use props to make poses accessible for a variety of students’ bodies. Contact Letitia to find out which class is right for you.

What?

We have all the props you need at both locations, but you are welcome to bring your own mat if you have one.

Wear?

Please wear comfortable clothing that allows Letitia to easily see your alignment in poses, especially if you have therapeutic concerns. Baggy clothing can hinder progress simply because you can’t see what you’re dealing with.

When?

Arrive to class 10 minutes early if it’s your first time so that you and Letitia can talk about any injuries, limitations or concerns you might have. See you in class!

One on One Yoga

Group classes give you the opportunity to practice with a community, a group of people pursuing the goals of yoga together. But sometimes injury, special needs, or the desire to work on a specific focus calls for one-on-one learning; for these we offer specialized Yoga Therapy Sessions and Private/Semi-Private Sessions.

Yoga Therapy | For the knees | Purna Yoga with Letitia Walker Asheville, NC

Yoga Therapy

Yoga Therapy offers the opportunity to move past injuries and restrictions both physical and emotional to alleviate pain and find greater health, happiness and well-being. Letitia incorporates all of the aspects of Purna Yoga (asana & pranayama, nutrition, meditation, and applied philosophy) to help her clients find relief from pain, increased mobility, and a life more easily lived. She specializes in Low-Back, Knee, and Neck and Shoulder Issues. She also works with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other wrists issues as well as foot and ankle work.

We recommend a 90 minute session for your first yoga therapy appointment so there is plenty of time to cover the presenting complaints as well as address all the aspects of healing (asana, nutrition, and meditation).

Private and Semi-Private Sessions

But what if you just want to find more specific ways to lengthen your hamstrings, open your hips in a balanced way, refine your Head Stand or Shoulder Stand, or learn a few specific series tailor made for you to practice at home? Private (or semi-private – 5 or fewer) Instruction is perfect for answering this individualized questions that can’t be addressed effectively in a group setting. Just as lovely is the use of semi-privates for birthday celebrations, pre-wedding day gatherings, or any time you want to gather with friends for a special focus.
