Yoga Classes

Learn. Heal. Grow.

Our mission is to make practicing yoga more accessible, attainable and approachable for all ages, bodies and abilities. No matter what your level of skill or wellness goals, Waynesville Yoga Center has something for everyone. Not sure where you belong? We’re happy to point you in the right direction:

If you have mobility issues and/or cannot get up and down from the floor, any L:1 class should be safe + accessible. If you attend L:1/2 or higher, you should be comfortable getting up from and down to the floor – and comfortable moving in and out of downdog.

Not sure what downdog means? Or still unsure about which class is right for you? See our New to Yoga page for guidance…

Chair Yoga for Balance

This class allows you to perform yoga poses while seated or using a chair for balance. Chair-based yoga offers the same benefits as traditional yoga, like boosting strength, flexibility, mobility and mental well-being.

Core Power Play

This class is all about strengthening your core muscles from every angle. We kick things off with grounding exercises and a gentle Sun A flow to center ourselves. From there, it’s all about targeting the core with a mix of traditional abs and oblique exercises, both on the floor and standing. We incorporate weights and bands to add resistance and challenge, while also focusing on enhancing chest, back, shoulders, and hip strength.

Do what feels right for your body. If a certain exercise isn’t your favorite, feel free to modify or take a breather. No jumping or high-intensity moves here, but expect to break a sweat and feel the burn as we work those core muscles to the max.


DEEP is a Buti® trademarked low-impact movement sequence that enhances balance and connects mind to muscle. DEEP combines micro-movements with touch to connect the brain to innervated muscle and restructure the deep core.

Fascial Flow + Floss

Fascia is the body’s scaffolding; the connective tissue that unites all other tissues. This network provides structure for our entire body and is in direct correlation to our overall health and well-being. Fascial Flossing is an active stretching and pulsing technique that provides a way to unbind and de-tangle this tissue that leads to a more comfortable, spacious and energetic body. This class will weave these flossing techniques into a flow yoga class, linking movement and breath through fluid vinyasa style sequences.

Flow + Ground

This practice moves with breath, gravity and surrender through each pose. It’s designed to gradually build toward higher energy flow sequence that pushes out what is stuck and stagnant then slowing gradually back down to a grounding calming static practice that centers and renews, then finishes with a brief meditation, bringing in a fresh and clearer perspective.

Restorative + Yin

This class will consist of easeful stretching, accessing the connective tissue in addition to the muscles, and long posture holds. 

Slow Flow

Slow Flow is a basic flow yoga class, in which movement is linked to the breath in a active series of yoga postures. There may be deeper stretches after warming up, but most of the class will be moving from one pose to the next. You should be familiar with the basics of vinyasa flow, such as moving from updog to down dog and back to standing. For those not familiar with these movements – or wanting a step down – please check out Beginners Flow.

Somatic Healing

Step away from our overstimulated world and learn to downshift your body and mind to a more balanced, relaxed state of being with Somatics. In this class you’ll learn slow, gentle, relaxing self-care movements that are suitable for all ages and bodies. Discover how to release muscle tension, improve posture, increase range of motion, prevent/rehab injuries, and improve your mood without stretching, forcing or overthinking it.

Strength + Stability

Focusing too much on our strength and leaving out mobility makes for a restricted, tight body, but focusing TOO much on our mobility without strength makes for an unstable, weak body. 

A well-balanced body is a combination of strength and mobility that will feel its best. This class will add to your yoga practice by building strength in your hips, core, shoulders, back, and chest, as well as working on joint mobility. 

Yoga for Beginners
