Asheville Yoga Center returns with 6th annual Yoga in the Park

Press release from Asheville Yoga Center:

Asheville Yoga Center invites the community to take their yoga practice outdoors in the heart of beautiful downtown Asheville. The 6th annual Yoga in the Park series kicks off on June 2 with an outdoor yoga class in Pack Square Park, led by AYC instructor Michael Johnson. Now in its 6th year, Yoga in the Park is a series of donation-based yoga classes that raises funds for local nonprofits in Asheville. All proceeds from the fun, community-based outdoor event will go to Homeward Bound and United Way of Asheville & Buncombe County.

“Yoga in the Park is one of our favorite events of the year,” says Melissa Pennscott, general manager of AYC. “We began Yoga in the Park to give back, both through the fun and communal experience of outdoor yoga and by raising funds and awareness for local nonprofits. We’ve been thrilled by the program’s success, and look forward to another great season of sharing yoga with the community.”

Time: 10am – 11:30am
