Balance your mind, body, and soul with Asheville Wellness Tour, a two-hour experience that gives participants a sampling of several rejuvenating services at various wellness spots around town. The tour is a collaboration among Dobrá Tea, Travelling Yogini, and Asheville Salt Cave.
Each session begins with a tasting at Dobrá Tea in downtown Asheville where herbal tea or Japanese green tea will be served. “The tearoom is a great starting point and a place to meet up with friends to enjoy a moment in good health,” says Andrew Snavely, of Dobrá Tea. Learn interesting facts about the tea’s origin and healing benefits. If time allows, guests can also order sweets and treats, such as gluten-free organic desserts.
From there, the Travelling Yogini will lead participants on a yoga tour through downtown. See a little bit of everything, learn about local commerce and history, and connect with your body through movement. “Even when the business of the street is happening around you, you can still find that stillness to be in a pose and be outside, breathing and stretching,” says Cameron Gunter, of Travelling Yogini.
The final stop is at Asheville Salt Cave. “This relaxing 45-minute session will embrace all of your senses, leaving you fully relaxed and nourished,” says Jodie Appel, of Asheville Salt Cave. “We will guide you into the salt cave sharing some information about salt therapy and what is happening to your body while in this space.” Guests are led on a brief guided meditation before settling in to the space for a time of rest and relaxation. You can schedule a massage or energy healing service in advance to enjoy after the tour, at an additional cost.
Reservations are required. Tours ($60 per person) take place Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to noon and 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon. For more information, visit ashevillewellnesstour.com. To schedule your tour, call Asheville Salt Cave at 828.236.5999.
