Meet Deb Vingle:
A long-term yoga practitioner, Deb completed yoga teacher training in 2008 and yoga therapy training in 2010 in hopes of integrating traditional counseling with the richness of yoga.  Much more than just a physical practice, as we tend to think of it in the West, Deb believes that yoga can benefit everyone, regardless of age, physical/emotional health, and conditioning.
 
Also a clinical social worker, Deb oversees the direct services at Helpmate, Asheville/Buncombe County's domestic violence program and has more than 30 years of experience working with women and trauma. "Yoga transformed my own life" Deb says, "and I'm very excited about sharing it with others."
 
Meet Kelley Wolfe:
Kelley J. Wolfe has been practicing yoga since 1997 and was certified as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) through the Yoga Alliance in July 2003. "My mind becomes a spiritual sanctuary when I practice yoga" she says. Through her teaching Kelley hopes others can experience the gratification and bliss that comes with the practice of yoga.
 
Kelley's style of yoga is described as vinyasa flow. In her class, the poses are linked with the breath while moving with a steady pace. Emphasis is place on relaxation and body awareness; and the classes are intended to address the needs of the beginner to the advanced student.  
 
In addition to being a yoga instructor, Kelley has a Ph.D. in Human Sexuality and a master's in Public Health Education. She worked for 15 years at UNCA in the Health and Wellness Promotion Department teaching Women's Health, Health and Sexuality, and Complimentary and Alternative Healing Modalities. She currently has a private business where she practices Clinical Sexology.
