Places to Go, People to See



At Weaverville Yoga we offer a variety of ways of practicing yoga – because human beings are varied.  The common thread, the yoga mala, of what we teach is that our way is based on compassion, kindness, inclusion, and commitment. The heart.

From the moment students step inside the door, they notice a sweetness that is not found elsewhere. This is because our classes are centered on the heart – on awakening the heart. Whether Ashtanga, prenatal, Anahata, vinyasa, ballet barre, or gentle yoga our teaching focuses on awakening the heart center, the Anahata heart chakra.

Our mission at Weaverville Yoga is to create a safe, kind, pure atmosphere for people of all kinds to grow and learn through the regular practice of yoga. Jai Baba!

"I was very fortunate to be given a 6-week sabbatical from work to finish a book to go with my native American museum photography exhibit… I went to the Center to write, and out of my pen came…poetry!  Baba was part of the inspiration for this, and it was under His urging that I began to recite my work, plus the work of my favorites- Rumi, Hafiz, Mary Oliver, Kabir, Yeats.

I now perform around the country, to music, and all of the work is by memory. I perform regularly in Asheville, so email me if you would like to be put on the email list, or to check and see when the next performance is…I am grateful to be part of a community that celebrates and supports poetry as part of the arts…”

The Art of Tracey Schmidt –

Winnie’s love of art blossomed in the third grade when her class made a 3’X6′ diorama of an Indian village in their classroom’s sand tray, complete with wigwams, birch bark canoes, and villagers and wildlife sculpted in clay. Initially she majored in art at the University of Denver, but having varied interests,she changed her major several times,and art went onto the back burner.

As a young adult she dabbled in painting, but again put art aside, this time for about 30 years.  Upon retirement she moved to Asheville in 1996. Here she once again began exploring her creative interests. Her first attempt was a three-part collage of a dream she had in 1971 about Baba breaking His silence. Since then her art has focused almost entirely on Baba, through dioramas, collage, greeting cards, jewelry making, and decorative matting of Baba’s image.

She says, “Making Baba art is exciting, challenging, rejuvenating, a way to drown myself in His remembrance”.
