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.

Sierra Hollister

Sierra Hollister

Sierra Hollister has been sharing Kundalini Yoga in Asheville, at the behest of her Maha Guru, Yogi Bhajan, since 1995. Sierra, named Ong Kar by her teacher, considers herself to be a Yoga Universalist, one who loves all the paths of Yoga. Blessed and inspired by many wonderful teachers and traditions, the truth is that her children and husband are her greatest teachers. While daily time on her yoga mat is essential, Sierra also believes very strongly in the yoga of action on behalf of the health of our Earth and feels there is no greater calling. As long as the planet is in jeopardy, there can be no true spiritual evolution for any of us. As much as yoga is time on our mat, yoga is also about how we live our lives, how we treat others and the choices we make. Sierra’s classes will not only make you feel wonderful, inside and out, they will restore, revitalize and inspire you for life off the mat. Sierra is a Lead Instructor for Asheville Yoga Center's 200-hour Teacher Training Programs.
