R&R Retreat

Soothe the body, mind, spirit and connect to nature. Enjoy this enhanced opportunity to relax and revitalize while retreating in a wellness oriented environment. In a day and age where people of all ages are overly scheduled and stressed this low key program is ideal. Start your morning with a nutritious, vegetarian/vegan buffet breakfast. Revitalize in a morning class while easing into an restorative evening class such as yoga and qi gong. 

At times, additional programs, presentations, and activities may be available to retreatants to activate life-enhancing changes (fees apply).

 Seek out OM Sanctuary’s contemplation destinations, wellness sessions for a massage or private session. Evenings are purposefully open, offering the option to visit the surrounding area for entertainment, outdoor adventures, and historical sites.  The 54-acre beautiful retreat is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains above the French Broad River in Asheville, NC.
