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.

Julia Albertson

Julia has been teaching Vinyasa style Yoga in various places between Miami and Asheville for the last ten years, but her journey with the practice began at the tender age of five, when her mother first became a certified yoga teacher. Being homeschooled for most of her high school years, Julia’s life was shaped by her experiences teaching as a young teenager, many hours spent writing at the beach, and her insatiable desire to explore the world. In addition to her public classes, Julia also dedicates her time weekly volunteer teaching to Buncombe County's incarcerated population; a demographic she calls her "souls work". Her classes are light hearted in nature and fuse elements of breath-work and meditation to create a well rounded practice that will make you both sweat and laugh. In her spare time, Julia enjoys blogging in local coffee shops, Epigenetic Coaching, rock climbing with her beloved, hiking with her dog, and engaging in real and authentic human connection.

Please note: sometimes Julia's classes feature uncensored Hip Hop music.
