True Nature Healing Arts

Carbondale, Colorado

The True Nature Healing Arts (TNHA) garden is a peaceful sanctuary, free and open to the public from dawn to dusk. The therapeutic environment incorporates several healing modalities, including a labyrinth, reflexology path, outdoor yoga space and contemplative gardens. The movement between gardens and building is completely integrated and activity moves seamlessly from one area to the next. Designed to inspire, each element is carefully conceived and shaped to support the healing work undertaken at the yoga studio and spa. Each detail of the garden is carefully and artfully crafted. The drain tiles, set in clover lawn and created from vertically aligned sandstone slabs, line the edge of the tea patio to collect rain water.

A new Kiva was completed in the spring of 2018.  The landscape will continue to unfold as the peace garden expands to surround the Kiva.  Features include a rooftop zen garden, wishing tree, moongate, and the Ganesha sculpture.  There will be more opportunities to stroll, rest, and visit within the beautiful grounds of TNHA.
