Akal Dev has been practicing and teaching yoga since the 70’s. She has taught at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, UMass Amherst and Appalachian State University. Integrating traditional Hatha Yoga with flow sequences and Kundalini practices, her classes are a delightful blend of challenge, humor and wisdom.

Currently, Akal Dev offers in-person, masked and socially distanced yoga classes on Thursdays from 10:30-11:30 AM at the Jung Tao School (Old Cove Creek High School). Classes are open to students of all ages and abilities, and are also recorded live on Zoom. Invitations to join on Zoom are sent out before class. Sessions can also be viewed by receiving a link that is sent out on request soon after the live class ends. Students who may not be available during the live time have the option of joining at any time during the week. For costs and more information, please call Ms. Sharonne at 828-264-1384, or send a message on the contact page.
