After meeting in a yoga class, JP and Cassie McClellan went on to earn certification from the government of India in classical yoga, a qualification they draw on today as they lead yoga classes that incorporate modern innovations. JP's background includes a stint at Plum Village, the monastery of zen master Thich Nhat Hanh. Cassie has practiced yoga since her late teens, and her practice went from a luxury to a life-long necessity after a car accident.
As certified Baptiste Power yoga instructors, the McClellans teach students Baron Baptiste's approach to yoga, which borrows from an array of yoga styles such as Bikram and Iyengar. Inside their heated studio, JP and Cassie guide students through a 60- to 90-minute sequence that was designed to condition NFL athletes, helping to tone their bodies, strengthen their minds, and soothe their shoulder pads. Their 1,200-square-foot studio boasts green initiatives such as LEED-certified paints and cork and bamboo floors that are soft on the feet.
Lighten Up owner and seasoned stretcher Lillah Schwartz opened Asheville's original yoga studio in 1981 with a mission to lighten and enlighten flexers of all fitness levels. The highly trained and experienced teachers provide one-on-one attention, altering poses to fit each student's skill level and zodiac sign, while a 15-minute complimentary consultation helps newcomers find their ideal class. Intro to yoga introduces the basic postures and breath work at a slow, relaxed pace, while Asana levels one and two warm up limbs for more impressive feats of nimbleness. The studio's flexible class schedule also includes focused courses for students with back problems and other health conditions, and mats are available for those who would otherwise resort to a quilt made of fruit roll-ups.

Seven years ago, some like-minded yogis met in a Denver park to practice yoga in the great outdoors. They didn't know that in the years to come, their numbers would swell to the hundreds?or that this tradition would become an anticipated event in 20 cities. In that moment, they just wanted to celebrate an atmosphere of unity in nature.
Today, Yoga Rocks the Park (Open Sky Marketing) meets on select Saturdays and Sundays in the spring and summer, drawing participants from locales such as Chicago, Phoenix, and San Diego. Though the movement's reach has yet to stop growing, all of its incarnations are staffed locally?area yoga teachers run the trademark 75-minute, all-levels class, and area pigeons act as the security team. At the same time, live musicians provide a soundtrack for the flowing series of poses, and local businesses within the community sell yoga- and wellness-related goods from a row of tents in the Wellness Vendor Village. Yogis of all ages are welcome. In fact, a class for kids keeps youngsters occupied while parents stretch in the sun.
