Our Yoga Studio in Hendersonville, NC
is now open!
Located at 1171 Spartanburg Highway, Hendersonville, NC 28792
We believe in the importance of belonging. We believe that feeling safe and seen is what makes a home, in this busy world. We are here to be your hOMe. Your uniqueness deserves a place to unfold and unfurl itself. YOUR body, mind and spirit deserve the space and assistance to GLOW and FLOW. We are a collection of diverse souls, gifts and vantage points that exist beyond the boundaries of a building. We are a COMMUNITY.
We are committed to our community, like family, by providing education, connection, creativity and support on the yoga mat and off. In return, we call on our members to contribute their ideas, presence and talents to grow our voices into a garden of energy and LOVE. We are on life’s journey with you, expanding and learning TOGETHER. In community, we offer more to ourselves and others every day.
Our founder, Bitsy, was searching WNC for all of the elements that had been in place at her yoga studio in New England - a studio that was more than a studio. A community. A place to belong, to have fun, share and make new friendships. She wanted a place to land, on any given day or time, and find exactly what was needed to soothe or feed the soul. After teaching yoga in the Hendersonville area for 7 years, and truly understanding the collective need others shared with her, Bitsy, her family, and friends have decided to launch their own hOMe in beautiful Hendersonville, NC.
Our name is inspired by Ganesha, one of the most popular and well-known Hindu deities. With an elephant head and a round potbelly, Ganesha empowers as the "remover of obstacles" but also resides in support over the realms of wisdom, luck, doorways, household and writing. We love the "trunks up" visual of finding joy through collective wisdom and flow. If we're not laughing, then what are we doing here?
