Meet Our 300 Hour Advanced Studies Instructors

Seek your mentors. Find your guides. Grow into the teacher you are meant to become. Our teacher trainers are among some of the most accomplished instructors in the southeast. Many have trained in the Vinyasa style under Stephanie Keach, while others have pursued training in various modalities ranting from alignment-based systems to Kundalini. No matter the lineage, AYC teacher trainers are committed to providing a well-rounded curriculum and education. 

Joe Taft

Joe Taft

Joe Taft believes in the transformational power of yoga. Joe (E-RYT500) is a former Certified Anusara® Yoga instructor who has dedicated himself to the practice of yoga since 1997 and has been teaching since 2002. Although Joe's classes are alignment-based, they are usually accompanied with an upbeat, funky playlist and heart-based philosophical themes through storytelling and mythology. In his classes you work hard, but always end with pranayama (breath work) and/or mediation to allow for deep relaxation. Joe’s in-depth knowledge of body mechanics and his innate understanding of the complexities of movement, allow him to guide his students more fully into their own bodies and lives. He is a Lead Instructor for both Asheville Yoga Center's 200-hour Teacher Training and 300-hour Advanced Training Programs.
