Asheville Community Yoga is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization built on the power of volunteers and Karma Yoga. Your time and talents are highly valued and appreciated and truly allow us to continue to serve the Asheville region and fulfill our mission of making yoga accessible to all. Below are our current volunteer and studio credit opportunities.
Each of our 80+ teachers are all volunteers and receive no monetary compensation for their classes. Once you become a teacher at Asheville Community Yoga you are able to offer paid programming including workshops and special events. We do not allow any outside guests to offer paid programming for our community as we reserve this space entirely for our volunteer teachers. To become a leader in this community and step into the role of teacher please email Wendy@ashevillecommunityyoga.com. Please include your bio, teaching resume, website (if applicable), teaching credentials, and any other pertinent information.
Zen & Now
Did you know that our small thrift shop pays close to 1/3rd of our monthly mortgage? It’s true! Zen & Now is a huge part of what allows us to keep our doors open to all, offer high quality props free of charge or rental fees, and pay for operating expenses. Volunteering at Zen & Now includes sorting through donations of clothes, shoes, and accessories, pricing items, displaying them, and checking out customers. To volunteer at Zen & Now please email Dana@ashevillecommunityyoga.com.
Special Events Team
We have many special events per year, and we can always use extra hands to support setting up, breaking down, and facilitating parking, among other duties. To join our Special Events team please email Jocilyn@ashevillecommunityyoga.com.

Dishwashing at Karma Cafe
This position is an opportunity for practicing mindfulness and precision, an opportunity to stay present with your breath and movements as you float from dish to dish. How gently can you work while maintaining an essence of urgency?
Please note you are required to attend a training session before you can be scheduled for a shift.
