Congratulations to YOU! We are pleased to announce that Asheville Community Yoga purchased the building in October of 2016. This special place now belongs to our entire community!
Through community fundraising, we raised the $150,000 needed to make the downpayment of the building and received a community loan of $85,000 to purchase the adjacent land at our existing location. Thank you to our amazing community for rising up to meet us wherever and whenever we need help and are ready to grow.
Now, instead of paying rent, Asheville Community Yoga will be paying off a mortgage. This will create a sustainable future for the yoga center and allow us to continue to serve the community for many years to come. We believe everyone can benefit from the healing practice of yoga, and aim to make it accessible to everyone, regardless of financial constraints, physical challenges or mental barriers.
We are excited to begin renovations on the building this coming winter and expand our offerings in 2017 and beyond! If you would like to be involved, please sign up at the front desk to volunteer and help build our new space.
This is a nurturing and safe space for so many of us to come breathe and practice. Every time you take a class, volunteer, or donate, you are contributing to the continuation and growth of the center. Thank you for being part of it!
