Our Team

Here at Asheville Wellness Tours, our collective passion is to share the best of Asheville through the lens of wellness.

We believe wellness can be lighthearted and fun (think: yoga hikes, burlesque dancing, and even wine tasting!), deep and meaningful (women’s circles, Tarot readings, cacao ceremonies), or anything in between! Our greatest joy is crafting experiences that encourage connection with yourself, others, and nature.

We are experts in our fields with decades of experience in: event planning, custom travel, retreat organizing, acupuncture, yoga instruction, massage, and so much more. Our network of local practitioners and experts is carefully curated to include the best of the best. We can’t wait for you to meet them. Here are a few:

Nicole Will – Owner, Custom Itineraries

Planning an Asheville adventure and need some support? You’ll likely work with Nicole along the journey and she can’t wait to chat about your vision.

From Nicole:

“I’ve spent the past 15 years exploring. I’ve held jobs that should really be titled “life experiences that paid me sometimes” and I’m so doggone grateful that I have a foundation of support in the form of family and friends whose love and tethering have allowed me to explore this wild world of ours and push my comfort zone time and time again. I have a restless spirit that took me on grand adventures throughout the US and internationally before leading me to plant roots here in sweet ole Asheville, NC in 2008. I love this mountain town and am passionate about sharing its unique and wonderful experiences. It is such an honor to support you all in efforts to unplug and reconnect with each other. Get in touch! Let’s start planning your adventure!”

Sue Ann – Owner, Yoga Instructor, Guide

If you’re including a Yoga Hike, Urban Wellness Tour, or Private Group Yoga session in your Asheville itinerary, you just might meet this vibrant soul in person. She also manages most of our online presence so you can find her behind the scenes too.

Before moving to Asheville in 2011, Sue Ann spent many years living in & running a retreat center in British Columbia where she apprenticed with a senior mentor & dedicated herself to studying yoga asana, yogic philosophy, ayurveda, community living & a wide variety of healing modalities. After earning a rarely obtained 800 hour Vijnana Yoga International Teaching Certification, she moved her family to Asheville to continue to share her love for the soul enriching world of wellness with others. She is deeply connected to the community & is excited to share the wonderfully unique options for adventure, wellness, connection, & rejuvenation in this magical mountain town.

From Sue Ann:

“I live and teach in Asheville, North Carolina and am passionate about health and wellness. I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and am proud to hold an 800 hour Vijnana Yoga International Teaching Certification. Teaching allows me to connect with others on their wellness journey.  Asheville holds a special place in my heart. I am constantly inspired and encouraged by the art and healing in this town and can’t wait to share this magical place with you.”
