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.

Using yoga asana and pranayama as an introduction into the practice of yoga, Isabel hopes to incite in her students a thirst for deeper inquisition into what yoga has to offer. With a passion for women’s health, Isabel works in Asheville as a birth doula, yoga instructor, and infant care provider. In addition, Isabel is a student of Ayurveda, earning her nutritional counselor certification. Completing her 500 hr RYT certification through AYC, Isabel is also in the process of becoming a Lamaze certified childbirth educator, a Khalsa Way prenatal instructor, and training as a midwife’s assistant. In her personal practice, Isabel found yoga after a prolonged foot injured forced her to take a break from her training as a contemporary ballet dancer. Using yoga as an education on emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness, she was able to recover from her injury and is now inspired to share her experience of yoga within her community. Teaching a wide variety of classes (including prenatal, baby & me, hot power yoga, restorative, traditional hatha, and vinyasa yoga), Isabel uses her passion for movement and self-discovery to help her students tap into their own greater potential. She believes that yoga is a way in which we can better ourselves, in order to better serve those around us.
