The Asheville Adventure & Asana Retreat
October 21 – 27, 2018
Join Seattle yoga teachers Sarah Eshelman and Chelsea Currier for a 7-day/6-night beer and yoga adventure! We’ll explore the beautiful Asheville area at the peak of Fall colors, drink delicious local craft beer, and reset ourselves with enriching yoga experiences.
Asheville is a small Appalachian mountain town with a hippie vibe and a ridiculously high quality of life. It’s a world destination for its stunning Fall colors along the Blue Ridge Parkway (which we will drive and hike).
And luckily, this scenery attracted some of the best chefs in America. The food is heavenly! From good ol’ Southern biscuits and grits, to creative vegetarian goodies, to top-notch Indian, Italian, Mexican, you name it. Whip out your Yelp app in Asheville and you are bombarded by 4+ star restaurants.
And the beer – oh the beer! Local breweries like Wicked Weed, Highland, and Green Man have turned this small town into a mecca for beer nerds. There’s a reason that New Belgium, Sierra Nevada, and Oskar Blues all built their East Coast locations here.
Top off all that Asheville goodness with winding streets of cute little shops, a Friday night drum circle, and a “treat yo’self” culture teeming with spas and hot springs.
Convinced yet? Cue the Appalachian folk music!
What to Expect:
This is so much more than a traditional yoga retreat. If you love exploring, love beer, love yoga, and want to make lasting memories and friendships -- this is the retreat for you. You’ll leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, with so many stories from our adventures.
We’ll be staying at the beautiful Montreat Conference Center during the peak of Fall. Get ready to be in awe of the autumn colors of Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains. We’ll be sleeping in Chestnut Lodge together, with the option for shared or private rooms (first come, first serve reservations). We’ll share fun activities together like hiking, ziplining, foraging, and of course yoga! We’ve scheduled in some much needed downtime: explore the trails of Montreat on your own, go shopping in downtown Asheville, or just take a nap. This is your vacation so you can spend the time how you wish.
