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, low-income community residents, 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.
