  • Move forward - don’t let the past hold you back from your purpose in this journey we call life.
  • Support each other where we are. Modifications are given so that everyone feels welcome and is able to practice within their skill level.
  • Set an intention to focus on for the practice, whether strength, flexibility, mindfulness, or even dedicate the class to someone who can’t physically be there.
  • Meet your body where it is today, leaving our ego, judgement, and competitive edge at the door!

Watch & Listen: Appalachian HorrorFest 

When: Saturday, October 7th, 6pm-10pm 

Where: Central Cinema / 1205 North Central St. Knoxville 

People have told scary stories since the beginning of time, and the Appalachian HorrorFest, produced by Ravens Vail Podcast, is keeping that tradition alive by providing a platform for storytellers to spin their bloodcurdling tales.

The Appalachian Mountains have been the setting of some of the most unique scary stories ever, most of which no one knows if they are true or just a tale spun to keep the kids in line. If you enjoy listening to a good scary story, this event is for you. It will feel like you’re sitting on the ol’ front porch while your granddad tells scary stories he heard from his grandad. The storytellers will entertain you with tales from around the world and close to home. Gather up your friends and family, slow down, turn off the phone, and spend an evening listening to the spooky stories from world-class tellers.

Only individuals 18 years of age and older may attend this event.
