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.

Denise Daneck

Denise's interest in Yoga evolved while attending Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL where she was practicing environmental and religious studies. It was through a book on the connections between Hinduism and ecology that a passion was sparked for discovering the Goddess and honoring Nature through inner transformation and sacred reciprocity. This craving for inner freedom and Union with the Divine is what fuels her developing practice and inspires her to share with others. Drawing from a variety of styles/flows, her classes will explore new themes & sequences each week, amidst a diverse & eclectic soundscape. As a graduate of AYC's 200-hour teacher training, Denise is excited to take her studies deeper and experience the transformative power of Yoga with the community.
