  • I love this place!  Each class had such a unique and talented leader, and they all shared different ways of caring for ourselves and each other. I loved forming connections with classmates and teachers, and bonding with the whole group.  On opening day we learned how to be careful and honor our interactions with others.  Then at graduation we heard how our interactions affected everyone in the group. I am so glad I got to learn about massage in a place where these skills are shared with reverence!

  • As a Yoga and Massage Therapist, learning Ayurveda at ASMY has enriched my personal and professional path in life. Vishnu and all of the teachers at ASMY communicate the ancient teachings of Ayurveda in a manner that I can embody and integrate into my practice. Thank you ASMY!

  • I am honored to have been a part of Asheville School of Massage and Yoga's Ayurveda program. This program filled my noggin with tons of useful knowledge to apply to my existing practices. Yet more than this, I feel my own personal evolution has been shaped permanently from my experience at ASMY. I am so grateful for ASMY's program as a launching pad of inspiration. Anyone open and ready to take the plunge into the stunning wisdom that is Ayurveda will surely not regret accepting this beautiful invitation from ASMY.

  • At the Asheville School of Massage and Yoga, I found exactly what I was looking for: a loving, supportive community in which I could grow professionally and personally as I became a bodyworker. Our classes were dynamic, exciting, and deep. Our teachers were experienced, insightful, and thought-provoking. I was exposed to many different modalities, all of which inform my practice today. I left with an entirely new understanding of the human body and what it means to heal. I left stronger, wiser, and ready to share my gifts with the world.

  • ASMY has been a place of learning, love and unlimited life lessons.  I have received top-notch training in the art and science of massage therapy from highly engaged and knowledgeable professionals.  My world has been widened by introductions to a variety of modalities and ways of thinking about the body, mind, and spirit, and I look forward to a lifetime of continued exploration....

  • In my final month at ASMY I hope to gain as many new skills as possible … and to also seize each moment to open to the process of self-discovery that has continued to unfold for me throughout this entire journey!  It has been amazing, and I do not take one second for granted!
