Magical Sunset Yoga Mountain Hike

This was such an amazing experience that I would do time and time again. My husband and I along with another couple that we were vacationing with did the private yoga mountain hike sunset. It was so magical. Heidi was our instructor, who also doubled as a tour guide up along the way pointing out some beautiful pieces of nature (wild flowers, history of the rocks, and nice other nature details that we really appreciated). She was so patient as we stopped along the way to snap some beautiful pictures. She also took pictures of our group as well which was such a nice touch!

Once you get to the top, she finds a nice spot for the mats. It was really nice that mats were provided since we are out of towners. With COVID all mats are sanitized before and after reach use. Heidi was a great instructor. My husband and I have some experience with yoga, although my friends who are beginners really enjoyed the poses and found them easy to do. I really enjoyed our conversation as we hiked. She is so sweet and has such good energy, which is so important for yoga.

Would 100% recommend!! If you’re looking for a sign, this is it!!

Perfect Sunset Proposal

We had an amazing experience with our guide Brooke! My girlfriend and I did a private hike with Brooke leading us up the Bear Wallow Mountain trail at sunset and had a spectacular view while Brooke guided us through a yoga session. After coming out of savasana I proposed to my girlfriend Kim (she said yes!) Brooke and Nicole were so helpful with planning all of this and it couldn’t have turned out any more perfectly. Thanks so much to you both and we hope to see you again soon! ❤️

Mountaintop Yoga Hike in Asheville

Incredible experience! Our guide, Leaflin, was such a kind, gentle human. We all vibed so well with her yoga instructing and her excitement for nature. When we opened our eyes after Shavasana, we were surrounded by some big ‘ole cows (slow moving, gentle, sneaky cows). Such a cool experience! I will definitely be coming back for more mountain cow yoga!

10/10 

Surprised my wife w/ a wellness tour for her birthday…the forest bathing, sunset yoga hike, and in-home-massage were all amazing! Nicole did a great job creating an itinerary for us and making sure we were taken care of every step of the way. Our guides: Dr. Mattie and Heidi, our masseurs: Nick and Selene were all pleasant and insightful. Definitely recommend and look forward to future experiences offered by this local company!

Bachelorette Yoga Hike

Despite the freezing temperatures, Leaflin braced the wind to give us a short hike uphill, an amazing beginner short yoga class with gorgeous views, and hilarious pictures which we will cherish for our lifetime. Even the thoughtful hot tea and snacks after the yoga made the experience much more than what we expected. Leaflin was so kind and made us have an amazing time despite the snow flurries falling down at the end of our trip. I definitely recommend Asheville Wellness Tours for an active group looking to get some pretty unique experiences while visiting Asheville. Thank you, Leaflin!

Yoga on the Mountaintop Hike

Amazing find and really enjoyed the day with Asheville Wellness Tours. Its an adventure and perfect day. Leaf was our group leader and took us thru the trails informing us of different plants and landscape while we hiked. At the peak of the trail we found an ideal area for our yoga and breathing which overlooked the mountains. Would suggest for anyone looking for a workout and some fresh mountain air!

Absolutely Recommend!

I used Asheville Wellness Tours to plan a Yoga on the Mountain Hike for a hen party weekend. We had a fantastic time and absolutely loved Sarah! Her unique way of describing poses had even us yoga veterans learning new & fascinating ways to perform poses. From start to finish the process was simple, clear, and easy to navigate. The hike was perfect for all skill levels and the yoga was the perfect relaxing activity to start the weekend. I highly recommend this activity for any group!

Private Bachelorette Yoga Class

Julia was an amazing yoga instructor that helped us really enjoy our Asheville experience. She came right to our Airbnb and brought mats for everyone. Her calming presence and yoga was exactly what we needed after a night out celebrating my sister’s bachelorette weekend. She truly went above and beyond by bringing my sister a gift bag to celebrate and by taking loads of group pictures. Great yoga experience, great communication, and inexpensive!

Celebrate as a Group!

I suggested doing yoga for my hen party weekend (I refuse to call it a bachelorette in my mid-30’s) because if I’m going to do a weekend away, as a busy professional I want it to be relaxing. This was PERFECT for me and my crew. We’re all crazy busy with our jobs, families, kids, activities etc, and we literally felt so relaxed after yoga atop the mountain. Even more so, the way Sarah suggested yoga poses was revolutionary to us as yoga veterans – her take on bridge literally changed my feelings on the pose! She took tons of pictures to share with us and I’m so grateful for this experience. They go above and beyond and I couldn’t recommend AVL Wellness Tours enough!

Great Hike & Yoga – Awesome Experience!

Despite the rain on the day of our scheduled hike and yoga, our guide took us up the trail and back to a warm cozy yoga studio. We had an awesome time and Julia was so friendly and great at what she does. We felt comfortable the entire way and can’t wait to come back and do it again.

Highly Recommend

This was a fun, lighthearted adventure. Just enough hiking to get the blood flowing and a very approachable for any level yoga flow on the top of a mountain. Guides were terrific. Easy and pretty drive from Asheville.

Simply Perfect

This tour is simply perfect! Starting with the lovely and knowledgeable guide to the locations chosen to visit, every stop was delightful. I learned a lot about Asheville and about the craft of each shop visited. Yoga in the park was so much fun and also perfect. Highly recommend this tour.

Blissful Evening

My hubby and I have been to Bearwallow many times but never at that time of day… it was nice to take our time and hike mindfully in the evening air. Sue Ann was so patient and sweet, acknowledging everyone and even offering treats. The yoga class was fun and easy to follow. I couldn’t open my eyes wide enough to take in that gorgeous sunset! The curious cows were adorable too. You are going to love this experience!

Group Tarot Reading

Had an amazing Tarot Reading with Bobbi! She was extremely kind and provided a very enlightening, centered reading for my group while following covid guidelines. Highly recommend

Girls Day Out

We did the tour and had a blast. Totally enjoyed each stop from tea shop, herbal shop, to the honey shop. Never knew there was so many different honeys. Also the outside yoga was a fun experience but the best was a relaxing visit in the salt cave with a foot massage after walking all over downtown. Our guide Kim was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend doing!

Unique Bachelorette Party

I was looking for more of an R&R weekend with the girls than a big party weekend and the Wellness Tours were perfect. The hike was nice and the yoga was so unique being at top of the mountain. Our guides were generous and well informed. They answered all of our questions and took amazing pictures – they really shared in the experience with us. I would highly recommend for anyone – families, friends, couples, etc

Get Your Namaste On

My daughter and I loved this peaceful interlude in our visit to Asheville where we were charmed by the passion so many here have for positivity and wellness. Sarah was an awesome yogi, guide, photographer, and now I will say friend! She brought peace and serenity to us through her sweet spirit and our visits to Dobra tea, the park, the herbiary, and the Bee Charmer. We had a beautiful morning!

Unique Birthday Experience in Asheville

I booked this experience for my mom and I while visiting Asheville for her birthday weekend. The communication from the start was great – detailed information on how to get to the mountain, alternate routes if you couldn’t go on a gravel road, the evening before to warn about rain – it was all great! Once we got there, we ended up having a private hike and yoga class (assuming due to the impending rain that I did not know about when booking). The hike was on a private set of saved land with its own roaming cows. The 1 mile to the top was not too strenuous but did have some inclines/steepness that got your heartbeat up. The guides were very knowledgeable about pointing out different nature items as well as giving information on the Blue Ridge mountains and hiking in general. Once at the top, we set up for our yoga session as it was starting to mist. The mountain was clouded but that was nice because it was like doing yoga in a cloud! The yoga practice was more restorative and stretchy rather than any flowing – likely due to the rain on the mats. We then took the road down instead of the path, which was quicker. The guides also had great recommendations on where to stop after (a local farm) for lunch and spoke to us about Asheville in general for what else we should see. I loved this whole experience and would recommend!

Asheville Wellness Tour

I would like to thank Nicole for her outstanding communication in helping me plan a wellness tour for my girlfriends getaway. She was a pleasure to work with. She arranged our wellness tour with our guide, Emma. It was such a fun and educational tour as we explored Asheville visiting a tea shop, herb store, honey store and lastly a relaxing experience in the salt caves to end our three hour wellness tour. Simply amazing! I would highly recommend AWT and Nicole for any tour or experience you may be looking to find in Asheville!
