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.
Libby Hinsley, PT, C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, is a Licensed Physical Therapist in NC and Certified Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists. She has been teaching yoga in Asheville for over 10 years. In 2008 she was fortunate to study at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai, India in the tradition of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar. Since that time, she has focused her study on therapeutic yoga in the viniyoga tradition. Her teaching style is down to earth and invites the practitioner to deeply investigate breath and movement in order to achieve a greater understanding of the body and the self and create habits that support well being. She teaches components of the Asheville Yoga Center’s 200 Hour Teacher Training programs, and is the Director and Lead Instructor of our 300 Hour Therapeutically Oriented Teacher Training Program. In addition to teaching yoga, she is co-owner of Asheville Holistic Physical Therapy, where she integrates Yoga Therapy with Myofascial Release and other manual therapy techniques to address a wide variety of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular complaints including back pain, chronic pain, and pelvic floor dysfunction. www.AshevilleHolisticPT.com
