Welcome to Yoga in the beautiful Southern Appalachian Mountains of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau in Western North Carolina. We are NC State licensed as an “Art of Healing” local business, offering training in Classical Yoga, Private Yoga Therapy Sessions, Group Workshops and Individual Ayurveda Retreats. As experienced and professional teachers and bodyworkers, we excel in adapting the art and science of yoga to the individual.

Discover your optimal alignment for enhanced posture, mobility, and overall well-being on and off the mat. Our classes focus on nourishing the relationship between the mind, the breath, the body, and developing functional movement patterns that will help you build resiliency in day to day activities.  You will be quietly energized, renewed and present to enjoy life.

We also offer original Structural Integration sessions, also known as “rolfing”.  It’s through Dr. Rolf’s teachings that we have learned to give length and lift to posture so that a person can experience increasing and sustainable vitality.
