Asheville Community Yoga’s mission is to serve the community by offering donation based yoga, health services, and community outreach, while inspiring our members to bring their “yoga” out into the world in the form of selfless service.
Our core values that guide our vision:
- Selfless service (Karma Yoga)
- Sustaining a supportive compassionate community
- Operating with openness, honesty and accountability
- Adhering to the most basic yoga wisdom, Yama’s (ethics) and
Niyama’s (restraints) which include: kindness, truthfulness, honesty, selflessness, non-possessiveness, purity, contentment, discipline, mindfulness, integrity and devotion.
Our vision is to provide a safe supportive space where individuals and families come together to create a compassionate and sustainable community, surrounded in an atmosphere where they are inspired to grow physically, spiritually and emotionally.
We believe that when individuals change, their families and communities also change. We want to inspire this change by reminding individuals of the love, compassion and energy that dwell within them, guiding them to health, happiness and well-being.
