Meet our yoga instructors

At Asheville Yoga Center our greatest asset is our people. Our teachers are among Asheville’s brightest and we are lucky enough to have some of the most accomplished yoga teachers in the southeast in residence at our studio. Many of our teachers have trained in the Vinyasa style under Stephanie Keach, while others have pursued training in various modalities ranging from ranging from alignment-based systems to Kundalini. No matter the lineage, AYC teachers are committed to providing a compassionate and informed space where students can find their own balance of effort and ease in the practice.

Stephanie Keach

Co-Owner and Founder of Asheville Yoga Center, Steph has been teaching Yoga since 1988. Originally from Santa Barbara, CA, she moved here in 1997 to raise her 3 sons with her beloved husband Sunny (co-owner/founder). Stephanie's Ashtanga Power Mix classes are always a fast moving blend of the Ashtanga template with fun variations thrown in, including handstands and inversions always. Accompanied by a rockin' playlist in the hottest room our heating system can manage, her classes are full of humor, sweat, and real-ness. All levels are welcome to shed layers of drama, fear, and ego, although Stephanie practices WITH the students so there will be little alignment instruction and zero hands on assists. She wants you to find your own way.

If colorful language offends you, then her classes are not for you.

Stephanie is the mama bear of all AYC's programs and would like to be President of Yoga one day.
