“Yoga is like music. The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul, create the symphony of life.”—B.K.S. Iyengar

Welcome to Brightwater Yoga

Nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, Brightwater Yoga is located in the heart of historic downtown Hendersonville. We offer each person who walks through our door the opportunity to experience a life filled with peace, harmony, balance and overall well being.

At Brightwater Yoga, we believe that each of these services has to be experienced to be fully understood. Yoga, for example, is more than a series of physical exercises. It is a personal journey through which one can experience the value of being balanced, centered and coordinated. Through regular practice, the body becomes stronger and more flexible, with a mental clarity and emotional stability that cultivates a new awareness and sensitivity applicable to daily life both on and off the mat. The seemingly simple benefits are profound and can be discovered the moment one steps onto the "mat."

Our studio offers a variety of classes for all ages and levels. Each class combines the fundamentals and philosophy of Yoga with the basic principles of alignment and kinesiology. The result is remarkable!! So, come and experience for yourself the value of Yoga!!!
