About

The Phoenix Asheville

Wherever you are on your path, you’ll find what you’re looking for at The Phoenix Asheville.

Hike along these ancient mountain trails and renew your mind, body and spirit.

Asheville is set in a lush valley nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Appalachia, the second oldest mountain range in the world. 

This region resides along one of Earth’s spiritual vortex centers. Their history and vibrational significance spans nearly 480 million years. The climate of the Blue Ridge Mountains makes it one of the most biodiverse environments in the world, showcasing more species of trees than the entirety of Europe and is home to hundreds of native medicinal plants.

When The Phoenix Wellness Retreat founder, Marsha Ralls, first arrived in Asheville, she was instantly awed by a feeling of peace and serenity at her surroundings.

With over 24 active vortexes, Asheville is one of the most concentrated power points in the US.

Vortexes are points of high electromagnetic energy formed at intersections in the earth’s grid system. In addition, Asheville is surrounded by National Forests rich with exposed quartz crystal deposits, which amplify this electromagnetic energy. Vortex energy has been tied to spiritual practices and healing for thousands of years, used to achieve inner tranquility and connection to a higher power. 

It’s no wonder people come to Asheville to experience this healing energy at the Phoenix Wellness Retreat!

The legend of the bird that bathes in the fire and rises from the ashes transformed is a metaphor for the invigoration you’ll feel during your stay at the Phoenix, and the renewal you’ll take with you when you return home.

The Phoenix Asheville was established in this forest oasis to promote personal transformation and wellbeing. 

The retreat center offers 46 acres of forests, walking trails, sweeping arbors and secluded benches for personal reflection in sylvan settings. The majestic, 16,000 square-foot sanctuary includes an interior koi pond, Zen garden, yoga studio and luxury sleeping accommodations. The center reflects a commitment to the arts that is reflected in the Artists in Residence program, developed to encourage artists to take risks and pursue new ideas. 

Here, amidst the magical beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Swannanoa River, you’ll find a supportive community of experts to guide your journey to lasting wellness.

Mornings will begin with a brisk group hike with magnificent views. Daily hikes are calibrated to become increasingly challenging to strengthen your endurance. Every day you will enjoy wellness activities such as massage therapy, exercise, mindfulness instruction and yoga.
