The Tree House Yoga Studio...
is a gem nestled in the peaceful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Columbus, North Carolina.
Each season brings a new view from the private yoga studio:  Winter opens up the eyes to the
neighboring pasture with a little white barn, horses grazing and the nearby mountains.  In Spring
and Summer we are enveloped in a canopy of green leaves creating a natural sanctuary with the
accompaniment of birds singing and water flowing.  In Fall, before the trees surrender their leaves,
we are witness to warm golds, bright yellows and vibrant reds that only this time of year brings.
