5 Ways Yoga Can Improve Your Life

Go Yoga Asheville NC

We stopped over at GoYoga in Biltmore Park Town Square in south Asheville recently. While talking to Carrie, we asked about some of the wonderful benefits of yoga. She sent these reasons over to us. If you have any more, or if you have a story about how yoga has helped your personally; please comment about it below.

  1. Physical.  Yoga stretches and strengthens your muscles and helps you to stay balanced physically.
  2. Breath.  Yoga reminds you how important it is to breathe.   Intentionally breathing deeply and with movement, helps your body relax and restores oxygen to your muscles.
  3. Detoxing.  Yoga, especially with the heat, detoxes your body from harm chemical, germs and pollutants that end up in our system.  Flu season is looming and yoga will decrease your changes of catching the flu.
  4. Stress Relief. After a hard day at the office or a stressful morning getting the kids to school, yoga helps to relieve the stress that builds up in our daily lives.  You will also find yourself able to handle stress outside of the studio by breathing and calming yourself with the methods of yoga.
  5. Community.  At Go Yoga at Biltmore Park, our supportive commmunity promotes interaction among our students, so we deepen our circle of friends.  We, also, will reach out to the community for events, fundraisers and fun!

Meet 5 People in Asheville That Will Change Your Life


There are many people in the Asheville area that are making great strides to help folks in so many areas of life, health and wellness. I think immediately about my friend, Lindsay Fields, who is consumed with Yoga, Life and Kindness. She has been such a great influence to me over the years! A beautiful person all around that I believe everyone is this world should know and learn from. Then there are others, like Shane.. who counseled our teenager, my beloved son; and helped turn his mentality, life and actions around for the better and forever. Today, my son reaches out and helps others in a positive light. The meetings and therapy were years ago, and the program actually lost its funding; but not before he planted a seed that would grow so good. We cannot find him to say thanks again, but our family still praises and credits the work that he did today.

More? There is George & Jackie (counted as one person in this post) from The Optical Shoppe, who helped our family SEE. Yes, they are a local, family owned eyeglass and contact lenses shop in west Asheville on Patton Ave near the Post Office. Their products, customer service , and prices are so hard to beat. My friends and family have been to a dozen vision shops in the area, but were processed like a fast food hamburger. Not here! Jackie and George both took the time to make sure we got exactly what we needed, and that we could actually see much better, if not perfect. Thank you!

It was not until a recent event and party in Charlotte NC, and hanging out with a few Multi-Millionaire and Celebrity friends that I realized how bad my teeth were, and how good their teeth looked. Even my photographer told one of our clients.. “WOW, your teeth are amazing!” And this was not a simple teeth-whitening. Every tooth was in perfect order, shining, white as snow, and screaming inferiority at all of us. It was then that I decided to visit Asheville Dentist, Dr. Stuart Yoon, DDS and see what he could do for me. I told him I needed dental work to fit in with my budget, and my rich friends haha. To work they went, with their awesome dental hygienist Brooklyn walking me through each and every step, and I am almost there. Now the whole family, and several of my business partners have dental work happening and planned there. The Hygienist even got me to start flossing my teeth on a regular basis. First time ever! Perfection is so close now. Bravo!!

How many times has your neck, back and body pain limited you from living more; from more activities, family time, and even sexual activity? Plenty! At least that is what “she” said lol. We know a Doctor, who is a Chiropractor in the Asheville area, and who has done wonders for many folks across Western North Carolina. Dr. Henry Battistoni is a genius when it comes to Chiropractic work. One talk and session with him, and the doors of flexibility should quickly begin to open wide in your life. Have you ever been cramped? Oh, we have have, and so many times. Call him the Un-Cramper, the Un-Kinker or whatever you wish; but calling him is a must if you are seeking body work to relieve your pain and discomfort.

These are just a few of the great folks in town who have helped and assisted us tremendously. Are there others in the Asheville area health and wellness community that have helped you, your friends, and family? Please comment below and let us know about them. Thank you!
