[INDOORS] Restorative Yoga + Hot Stones

December 17, 2022 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

with Kim Drye

During this specialized two hour yoga class the healing benefits of hot stone placement and restorative yoga are combined to give participants a therapeutic experience. Think spa treatment meets your yoga mat! Restorative Yoga is an approach to yoga that is accessible to all levels of practice. All postures are done on the ground with multiple props so that the body is completely supported at all times. This accessible practice allows the nervous system to calm, and the mind to rest. The calming characteristics of restorative yoga soothe the mind-body, while allowing room for breath and deep relaxation. For an added layer of relaxation each participant will receive hot stones placed strategically on their body during every posture. Please wear comfortable, loose clothing and arrive 10-15 minutes early.

Kim Drye (she/her) is a seasoned and skilled yoga instructor and current studio owner of West Asheville Yoga. She specializes in alignment, therapeutic and restorative yoga.  Her classes are typically a themed slow flow interspersed with a breakdown of technique and alignment details.  She regularly teaches classes, workshops, retreats, and teacher trainings under a brand she created in 2011, HereNowYoga.

Some of Kim's most loved offerings are "Yoga on the Mountain" and "Restorative Yoga and Hot Stones" as well as her private therapeutic sessions for seniors and others looking for an adaptive practice and/or a teacher who will meet them where they are on their path of self discovery.  She loves to teach "Weighted Restorative" sessions that include the use of Ravi weighted blankets-- a therapeutic technique for anxiety, ADHD and other neurodivergent tendencies.  She is a founder and continues to work closely with Asheville Wellness Tours as a yoga hiking guide, goat yoga instructor, bachelorette and wedding yoga teacher, and private instructor at Airbnbs and vacation homes.

Kim trained primarily with instructors in the Iyengar tradition including Asheville, NC teachers Lillah Schwartz and Cindy Dollar, as well as nationally recognized master teachers Matthew Sanford, Roger Cole, and Aadil Palkhivala.  Her certifications include a 200 hour certification from the Asheville Yoga Center with Stephanie Keach (2008), and a 500 hour Yoga Therapy certification from Lighten Up Yoga with Lillah Schwartz (2009-2013). Kim believes strongly in the interconnectedness of all beings and the power that a practice of yoga asana and meditation as a deep study of the Self can have to bring forth the joy that resides in every heart.
