  • It's hard to put into words the impact that ASMY has had on shaping not only who I am as a massage therapist but a person as well.

  • My life has changed wonderfully for the better since attending Asheville School of Massage and Yoga. Thanks to my education here, from the finest educators whom I relished studying under, I get to work professionally doing what I love most...connecting with people on deep levels and dancing along the healing path with them...just like we would during our dance breaks in class.

  • 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 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!

  • 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.
