Asheville Yoga Center Class Schedule


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.

*Recommended for Beginners 

  • Gentle indicates the class is not vigorous, but slow and soothing, perfect for those wanting a more relaxed and softer practice. Also excellent for beginners, the elderly, and pregnant women.

  • Power indicates a vigorous practice that will challenge and energize you with its focus on building strength and concentration as you flow through powerful, flowing sequences. This type of class is meant to challenge you and your existing practice, make you sweat, have some fun, and try and inversion (or three!). Not recommended for beginners who do not have a basic knowledge of yoga postures.

  • Warm classes allow the body’s tissues to soften more deeply, as the room is kept between 80-89 degrees.

  • Hot classes involve a dynamic and challenging practice in a room heated to 90 degrees or above. You will sweat, so please bring your own mat, water bottle, and towel. First time students are discouraged from attending HOT classes, as they tend to be fast-paced, and are meant for those already familiar with basic postures.
