The Wellness Center offers a variety of yoga classes that are free for our members to attend. In order to meet the needs of our members we’ve labeled the classes according to levels. This will allow members to choose classes that are suitable for their current fitness levels.

Our Instructors

Devin Treger

I believe that we all have an inner guide, and the breath is the tool to unlock it. By linking our physical movements to our breath in a fluid flow, we allow ourselves to connect and foster our relationship with the Self. My teaching style is highly intuitive, meaning that each class is catered to the people and energies that show up. I’m passionate about creating a welcoming space for breath and movement for every student. We all have something to teach each other!

Laura Price

Laura Price has been practicing yoga for five years. She is certified with over 200 hours of teacher training from the Asheville Yoga Center. She is also a trained dancer and choreographer and loves to incorporate yoga is all aspects of her life.

Besty Harris

I teach a Vinyasa flow style of yoga. This means that the various poses (asanas) are connected in a fluid manner, almost as a dance. I emphasize breath, flexibility, strength, and balance. My classes are accessible to all through modifications and the use of props such as blocks, straps, and blankets. I am especially sensitive to the needs of those with specific challenges to mobility, endurance, and balance.


Brad Ratay

I really enjoy connecting with the community & sharing a collective movement practice. My classes are a playful and lighthearted vinyasa flow. You may hear cues such as “move & groove,” “give it a lil wiggle,” and “gyrate the hips.” I also teach a restorative yoga class, which is intended to make yoga accessible for all ability levels. Here are some fun facts about myself:
Biggest inspiration – Richard Simmons  
Favorite food – Fancy toast  
Favorite yoga pose – Happy baby

    We Believe:

    Good nutrition comes from setting goals and making mindful dietary choices. 

    Our Registered Dietitians have experience with a variety of medical concerns including obesity, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. In addition, they have worked with a variety of medical conditions, and with both adults and children. They are registered with the Commission on Dietetic Registration and Licensed with the state of North Carolina to practice Nutrition and Dietetics.

    Clients can also rest assured that the information we provide will be evidenced-based and supported by sound research. We also strive to provide nutrition tips that are practical and that most people can reasonably incorporate into a busy lifestyle.

    “They are great coaches and motivators. I have learned so much about nutrition and fitness. I have been able to adapt my habits and make positive and lasting lifestyle changes. I’m on course to achieving my goal for weight, nutrition, and health–couldn’t achieve it during the 16 weeks I’ve just finished, but my goals are in sight and I will keep working on them (with help from my great coaches!).”

    -Mike H.

    “I really appreciated meeting as “a team” to talk about nutrition and exercise. I appreciated the encouragement and motivation. I appreciated how the “pace” changed across time–we started where I “was” with my eating and fitness and the pace introduced appropriate challenges as the weeks progressed–so, not too much too soon.”
