The Teachers

Georgia Ferguson

Georgia Ferguson

Georgia’s journey to become a yoga teacher began in 2007. Years of weight- and cardio-training had begun to feel monotonous, and she had noticed more wear and tear on her body than she should have at age 35. Caring for three young children and a terminally ill family member was taking its toll as well. She began taking yoga classes in addition to her weekly workouts, and her yoga practice quickly became a personal respite. It was the first time she learned how to listen within. Yoga practice brought a dimension to her already active Christian ...

Connect with Mary: I’ve been a student of Yoga since college (many, many years ago), practicing Transcendental Meditation, as well as the physical practice of yoga. My serious practice began about 22 years ago, after experiencing a debilitating back injury. Yoga became part of my healing process; the benefits were transforming. I then realized that my life needed to include this wonderful practice of physical healing as well as emotional and spiritual healing. I began attending weekly classes as well as many workshops and retreats all over the country. Studying with Desiree Rumbaugh, Suzie Hurley, Sharon ...

Megan Baxter

Connect with Megan: I fell in love with yoga in 2011 and it immediately became a part of my daily life. Hatha yoga seemed a logical path after years of dance and gymnastics. The practice of yoga asanas led me to learn about the other limbs of yoga. Yoga gives me the tools to soothe my type A mind. I completed my 235-hour teacher training at Asheville Yoga Center in May of 2014. I completed my 300-hour teacher training (also at Asheville Yoga Center) in November of 2015 and am a RYT-500. One of ...

Sally Ann Frank

Connect with Sally: After decades of weight-training and endless hours on the treadmill, Sally found workouts uninspiring after the birth of her daughter.

Lisa Tendler

Lisa Tendler

Connect with Lisa: I always loved being alone and when my Dad left Richard Hittleman’s 28 Day Yoga Plan under the Christmas tree I took off with it and began my yoga journey. I practiced alone with no outside distractions and nobody telling me how it should be done. What a gift to start this way. Self inquiry it was! I was 16 and my mind was open. Soon after that I found a free yoga class at Davidson College taught by Herb Jackson an art professor there. This was my first experience with an instructor in a class ...
