Please Vote Us As Best of WNC!

It’s time to cast your vote for your favorite places in Western North Carolina! Last year we were voted Best Yoga Studio in Asheville and the Best Place to Center Yourself in Asheville, 2 of our head teachers were acknowledged as the best Yoga Teachers in Asheville (Michael Greenfield & Kelly Gilmore) and Zen & Now was named the Best Nonprofit Thrift Store in Asheville. We have been winning these awards since 2011 and they make a huge difference in getting our name out into the community! Think about the impact that the services we offer have on your life, and consider that your vote will allow someone in WNC who hasn’t met us yet to experience the same benefits you’ve experienced.
