Open the Windows and Doors to Your Heart

Join Karen McGovern for an evening patio class to open your heart. The class begins with as short Dharma talk which sets the intention (sankalpa) of the class. This Align and Flow class is centered around the heart quality of compassion. The sequence of poses will focus on proper alignment and use of the shoulders. These asanas will both open and strengthen the shoulders. Class will end by offering a Loving Kindness Meditation. This level 1-2 Anusara (Flowing with the Heart) style theme based class is the first in a series of personal growth.

Anusara classes are presented with a corresponding theme. Each class begins with a dharma talk (a talk about the best way to live our lives). The yoga practice is centered around the talk. Don’t miss this unique yoga experience.

Karen McGovern’s ( E-RYT 500) unique teaching style keeps her students motivated, captivated and engaged. Her passion is “Helping everyBody live better in their BODY.” Her background teaching dance, judging, coaching and choreographing gymnastics gives her an astute perspective, knowledge and understanding of body movement. Karen is thrilled to be joining the staff at the Waynesville Yoga Center to present some uniquely designed Anusara style yoga classes.

Lessons From the Lotus Blossom // August 1st 7 – 8pm

This Align and Flow Class begins with a short dharma talk focusing on the symbolism of the Lotus Blossom and how this symbolism applies to our yoga practice. Sama Vritti pranayama sets the tone class which focuses on building muscula and organic energy in each asana. This sequence of poses concentrates on building a solid foundation for standing poses.

Harnessing the Gifts of Lakshmi // August 22nd // 7 – 8pm

Lakshmi is one of the many Goddesses found in Indian Mythology. She has many desirable attitudes. The brief dharma talk will highlight these gifts which will be used throughout our yoga practice.

A series of back bending asanas will culminate in an apex poses. A yoga nidra Savasana will complete the series.
