Our Team

Here at Asheville Wellness Tours, our collective passion is to share the best of Asheville through the lens of wellness. We believe the experience can be lighthearted and fun (think: yoga hikes, burlesque dancing, and even wine tasting!), deep and meaningful (women’s circles, Tarot readings, cacao ceremonies), or anything in between! Our greatest joy is crafting experiences that encourage connection with ourselves, others, and nature.

We are experts in our fields with decades of experience in: event planning, custom travel, retreat organizing, acupuncture, yoga instruction, massage, and so much more. Our network of local practitioners and experts is carefully curated to include the best of the best. We can’t wait for you to meet them. Here are a few:

Nicole Asheville Wellness Tours Bio

Nicole Will - Owner, Custom Itineraries

Planning an Asheville adventure and need some support? You’ll likely work with Nicole along the journey and she can’t wait to chat about your vision.

From Nicole: “I’ve spent the past 15 years working in wilderness therapy for at-risk adolescents, as a hiking guide in the Andes and Great Smoky Mountains, and as a travel planner in Ecuador organizing yoga retreats, photography workshops, and custom adventures. I have a restless spirit that led me on grand adventures throughout the US and internationally before leading me to plant roots here in sweet ole Asheville, NC in 2008. I love this mountain town and am passionate about sharing its unique and wonderful experiences. It is such an honor to support you all in efforts to unplug and reconnect with each other. Get in touch! Let’s start planning your adventure!”

If you’re including a Yoga Hike, Urban Wellness Tour, or Private Group Yoga session in your Asheville itinerary, you just might meet this vibrant soul in person. She also manages most of our online presence so you can find her behind the scenes too.

From Sue Ann: “I live and teach in Asheville, North Carolina and am passionate about health and wellness. I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and am proud to hold an 800 hour Vijnana Yoga International Teaching Certification. Teaching allows me to connect with others on their wellness journey.  Asheville holds a special place in my heart. I am constantly inspired and encouraged by the art and healing in this town and can’t wait to share this magical place with you.”
