Light a Path's mission is to create resilience through connection.
We do this by bringing yoga, meditation, strength training and running
to youth, the incarcerated, the unhoused, older adults, veterans, and those in recovery. Through connection to these modalities, and to a devoted volunteer, we facilitate the ultimate connection: to inner reserves of resilience, peace and wellness.
Conceived as an expression of service by a group of Asheville-based yogis and other practitioners, our mission grew out of the idea of creating community and resilience in underserved populations of Western North Carolina through offering evidence-based wellness tools at no cost.
With almost 50 volunteers offering around 30 weekly classes, we are building equity and inclusivity by making evidence-based wellness tools accessible to all.
