Asheville Community Yoga is a nonprofit organization that offers donation based yoga classes, including Yoga en Español, Yoga for Seniors, Prenatal Yoga, Kids Yoga and Yoga for Veterans, as well as workshops, series, immersions and yoga teacher trainings to those seeking a healthier lifestyle through the practice of yoga and other healing arts modalities. We are able to offer over 120 weekly classes by a donation basis because all of our 65+ teachers are all volunteers. We operate Zen & Now, a thrift shop, donation based childcare, a community market with healthy local and regional snacks and beverages, and Karma Café which offers nourishing food at affordable pricing. Our mission is to keep yoga and the healing arts accessible financially, mentally and emotionally for people from all walks of life, and our vision is to nurture a welcoming, engaging, friendly and diverse yoga and healing arts center, bringing everything together under one roof.
We believe that practicing yoga regularly greatly enhances a person’s physical, mental and spiritual health. This produces a powerful ripple effect, which radiates through the surrounding family, community, and workforce in ways that positively influence everyone. Asheville Community Yoga is a place where people come together and support one another in their goals toward a healthier lifestyle.
