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.

My journey into yoga started at a point in my life when things just needed to change. I started with just a 10 minute practice, and it changed my life. To me that is what makes yoga special--it meets the needs of students of all kinds and changes as we change. After practicing at home for some time I found my way to a local yoga studio and continued to grow my practice.

I completed my RYT-200 in Ohio and credit Ylonda Rosenthal-Greene for providing inspirational training and Kathleen Kossman for having the belief in me as a new teacher. Since then I have completed training as a Curvy Yoga teacher, and two advanced trainings at Asheville Yoga Center where I earned my RYT-300. Most recently, I earned my 300 hour certificate in therapeutically oriented yoga. I currently am certified as an ERYT200;RYT500 with the Yoga Alliance.

More than anything, I believe that yoga is for everyone. I try to make everyone feel welcome and to adapt my classes to meet the needs of my students.
