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.
“Breathe and know you are truly ALIVE! This is yoga” ~Jennifer C-O
Jennifer is a registered E-RYT 500 and YACEP logging well over 1000 hours in advanced study of classical hatha raja yoga. Bringing inspiration both from daily explorations on and off the mat as well as study with her teachers, Jennifer’s classes emphasize breath guided practice for health, wellbeing and personal transformation. With backgrounds in classical hatha, vinyasa, yin and restorative yoga her classes are a truly holistic experience incorporating intentional asana, mantra and pranayama as is appropriate. Each class asks that any and all perceived limitations and/or assumptions be relaxed to step out of the proverbial box and into one’s true potential. Students often leave surprised of their capabilities and the limitless possibility of the practice. She also offers regular private sessions and retreats in her home studio in Hendersonville in which principles of hatha yoga, holistic health coaching and personal exploration blend together to meet the needs of the individual.
While Jennifer enjoys teaching workshops, trainings and retreats around the world she is so happy to be back in the mountains after many years teaching in larger cities, enjoying the bounty of nature and the sincerity of the Asheville Yoga community.
Gratitude to all the teachers along the way who have shown light on the path.
