For people who are able to pay, the suggested “Love Offering” amount is $5 to $15 for regular classes and $15+ for special events and workshops. By offering donation-based yoga classes, we hope to make yoga accessible to everyone.
The center is funded through generous donations from students, local businesses and organizations. This center was built on the foundation of karma yoga (selfless service). All the teachers at Asheville Community Yoga practice karma yoga in generously teaching completely for free.
The state-of-the-art center is equipped with everything you’ll need for your practice, from mats and blankets to heated hardwood floors and a serene atmosphere. Upon first entering the center, many people comment on its beauty and describe their time here as a "mini-retreat."
We believe in this transformative power of yoga and strive to make the practice accessible to everyone regardless of their socio-economic status. 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.
