All of our classes are offered for a suggested “love offering” of $5-$15 per class and are free for those who cannot afford to pay. We accept all forms of payment and you are welcome to pay each time you come for class, or set up recurring monthly donations. Most workshops are $25. Special Event pricing varies based on the event, however financial assistance is available. Asheville Community Yoga is funded through generous donations from students, local businesses and organizations. Asheville Community Yoga was built on the foundation of Karma Yoga (action of service with no expectation of reward).

We are grateful for the wisdom and light they individually and collectively share with our community.
