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.

As an avid practitioner and deeply curious student, I have cultivated a love for sharing Yoga on and off the mat as a passionate, holistic lifestyle. After years of searching, I feel like I found myself when I found Yoga in my early twenties. Since then, it has become my rock. It inspires me that the more I progress and evolve, the more I realize just how much there is to learn and explore. There is no limit to the Yoga journey. My practice is devoted to each of us honoring ourselves as our own greatest healer and teacher. I am continuing to instill within myself that we don't actually need anything outside of ourselves. If I resonate with you, it is because I am a part of you. Most of my Yoga education, including advanced teacher trainings in Yoga therapy and Kundalini Yoga, has been received through Asheville Yoga Center and its diverse, amazing community. I consider myself a "Yoga universalist" and enjoy blending different styles, healing modalities, and themes into my classes for a uniquely creative experience. I would love to be of service to you and I love you so much.
