A History of Healing

Asheville has served as a wellness destination for more than a century. Doctors often prescribed a trip to Asheville to take in the area's cool and clean mountain air. During the tuberculosis crisis of the early 1900s, many sought relief in the 200 home-run sanitariums across the city.

While Asheville is not able to welcome you for a refreshing get away right now, thanks to a wealth of wellness experts here in town we can share this virtual dose of relaxation and meditation.  

Find Peace with Free Online Yoga and Meditation Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Find your zen during this stressful time. Miranda Peterson of Asheville yoga hike company Namaste in Nature has developed a series of free, online videos to help you relax. In the videos, Miranda guides you in front of a backdrop of vistas, waterfalls and forest trails in the Blue Ridge Mountains. 

From a 10-minute sensory meditation to a gentle, immune boosting yoga asana practice, these videos are designed to “calm and support your immune system.” The videos are easily accessible on YouTube.

Asheville Community Yoga, West Asheville Yoga and Pure Barre Asheville are among local studios livestreaming classes so you can get your workout in from the comfort of home.

Tap into Asheville's Wellness Culture

Invite Asheville's unique and storied wellness culture into your home. Asheville Wellness Tours is offering online experiences to help you bring you and your friends/family together even while you're separated.
