Asheville Community Yoga goes solar

Press release from Asheville Community Yoga:

Asheville Community Yoga recently installed solar power thanks to a $60,000 grant from Duke Energy Progress. The solar power will sustain the 8,300 square-foot space, which includes Zen & Now, a pre-loved clothing shop; three studio spaces and two Healing Arts rooms; and Karma Café, a new restaurant opened by the nonprofit organization.

“Solar Power is something Asheville Community Yoga has been working towards since our inception in 2010. This advancement is beneficial not only for those who are a part of our community, but also for our world as we all work towards global sustainability. We seek to inspire other individuals and businesses to take on projects that not only serve themselves but serve the world, and we are excited to finally see this dream come to fruition,” said Michael Greenfield, Executive Director at Asheville Community Yoga.
