Join us at the Riverside Pavilion for a scenic stretch sessions of yoga by the French Broad River lead by our resident instructor Alison Patronik.

Before moving to Asheville in 2019, Alison lived in London where she became a student of yoga and a yoga teacher. She continues to be both. Her teaching is very much informed by her own practice and describes her style as informed, playful and interactive. She’s passionate about movement and teaches a slow, breath-based form of yoga. Aside from being inspired by her clients, Alison is inspired by the philosophy of yoga and how the practice reaches far beyond the mat into daily life. She loves to share this ancient tradition and teaches to all levels. Alison is published on the subject of yoga and wrote a book which forms part of a series published by Singing Dragon for yoga teachers: Developing a yoga home practice, an exploration for yoga teachers and trainees (published under the name of Alison Leighton).
