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.

Eliza's Align and Flow class is an alignment-based and heart-centered practice, combining the ancient wisdom of yoga with the modern science of biomechanics. This graceful and slow flow yoga uses the 5 Universal Principles of Alignment to create a vibrant body, clear mind, and expansive spirit.

Eliza grew up on a small farm outside of New York City and has always been very connected with nature, finding peace and serenity in the innate wisdom of the earth. She is an avid traveler, having spent extensive time in Asia, Europe, Costa Rica, and Israel. Eliza has also worked extensively as an environmental educator, connecting students with nature.

Eliza’s love for yoga led her to a 200-hr YTT in Chiang Mai, Thailand with Jonas Westring. Afterwards, she spent months immersing herself in Asian culture, studying advanced healing modalities, such as ThaiVedic Bodywork. Eliza is an accomplished massage therapist in Asheville and she incorporates her wisdom of energy movement and the healing arts into her yoga classes. Come join Eliza for an empowering, uplifting and down-to-earth and practice!
