Mission & Vision

Mission:

Asheville Community Yoga is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to making a healthy lifestyle accessible to people from all walks of life.

Vision:

Our vision is to offer a space for individuals to flourish and for community members to gather together. We offer services that promote a mind-body-spirit connection such as donation-based movement & meditation classes with mats and props supplied at no charge, workshops & trainings with financial aid, healing arts services, local artwork, healthy food and affordable pre-loved wearables. We also provide opportunities for community members to volunteer and to serve both our immediate community and the larger community as a means to uplift themselves and others on their path to wellness. We continue to offer an inclusive schedule to be able to serve a diverse population so that everyone in our community has access to the benefits of a yoga practice. Asheville Community Yoga is a place where people come together and support one another in their goals toward a healthier lifestyle.

Our vision is a world where all can access the tools of yoga and community for personal and communal transformation.

Guiding Principles

  • To help individuals learn how to support their own path of wellness in determining what optimal health & liberation may mean for themselves;
  • To embody our motto of “Freedom Through Service” by our many teachers volunteering their time and their wisdom, offering monthly service projects, as well as other many other volunteer initiatives;
  • To foster a safe haven where all are welcome to participate, explore and experience the benefits of yoga, healthy eating, and self-care regardless of cultural differences, age, socioeconomic status, gender, physical & cognitive abilities or language spoken.
  • To lead with an intention of sustainability, allyship, and dismantling of oppressive (non-yogic) structures.

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.
