Athena Seay

A native of South Carolina, Athena brings to her practice an opening to grace and strength. She is grateful for the gifts that yoga has brought to her. These include overcoming a back injury and helping to raise her three children. Athena is certified through Yoga Alliance (230 RYT) through the Asheville Yoga Center, she also holds certificates in Pre/post natal Yoga and Pilates. Athena has been fortunate enough to take classes from many world masters including Baron Baptiste, Shiva Rea and John Friend. The greatest pleasure in her learning though comes from seeing the transformation that yoga has on her students.
