Welcome to the Prama Institute & Wellness Center
The Prama Institute is a non-profit, holistic retreat center located on forested hilltops and grasslands surrounded by the Appalachian Mountains. It sits in Marshall, NC, near the French Broad River, about 25 minutes outside Asheville, NC.
At the Prama Institute we live and work in sustainable community providing holistic education for people and planet. Plans are also underway to expand into a thriving eco-village that includes a yoga therapy clinic, organic farming, and other sustainable projects.
At Prama we strive to offer holistic and comprehensive programs and workshops that give you the tools you need to create more personal peace and better physical health.
