When a knee injury sidelined decades of running, and her weight training regime grew tedious, Ruthie turned to yoga. She craved the physical exertion of power vinyasa classes. Yoga had it all: cardio, strength training and flexibility. Then, much to her delight, Ruthie discovered that yoga offered something even more powerful and more nuanced. Her asanas deepened and her heart opened. Yoga morphed from a physical practice into a life practice.
In 2013, eleven years after attending her first yoga class, Ruthie received Yoga Alliance certification through the Asheville Yoga Center. Advanced certification through Vibe followed several years later. Ruthie is delighted to be a part of the Vibe family and has taught over 1,000 classes. Students who attend Ruthie’s classes can expect a thoughtful and often rigorous flow followed by a gentle and sweet release. Spicy and sweet - just like Ruthie is!
