Joe Taft

Asheville Yoga Center, West Asheville Yoga

Joe has been passionate about yoga for over a decade. Initially, he was drawn to the physical benefits, and then over time he developed a deeper appreciation for the attitudinal, spiritual and philosophical aspects. When all these aspects come together for Joe both on and off the mat, then he knows he has achieved a state of yoga.

As a yoga instructor, Joe weaves together how the attitudinal and philosophical components manifest in the forms of the poses to express the spirit's essence. Joe gathers inspiration from people who step into their passions fully, and as a result, become transformed into an art form.

In Joe's yoga classes the students are encouraged to express their passions and create art through the vehicle of asana. This feeling-based movement shapes Joe’s classes and workshops.
