Light a Path (LAP) is a non-profit organization, founded by Yoga International teacher Sierra Hollister, that brings yoga and other movement modalities to underserved populations.
If you're a teacher who wants to share yoga outside of traditional yoga spaces, this program, which features LAP's work, can help you get started.
You'll meet LAP teachers, gain valuable insights from their years of experience, hear firsthand testimonials from LAP students, and receive sample classes that were filmed for three specific populations: older students, people in prison, and people in recovery.
The mission of LAP is to “create resilience through connection.” If you feel a call to use your teaching to make a positive and lasting impact in your community, begin here.
A self-proclaimed “yoga universalist”, Sierra holds teacher certifications in multiple lineages and styles. While loving all yoga paths, Kundalini has been her mainstay. Sierra began her formal study of Kundalini at Ahimsa Ashram in 1992, as a student of Yogi Bhajan. Sierra is on the teaching staff at Warren Wilson College, Asheville Yoga Center and West Asheville Yoga and is E-RYT200 and RYT500 with a BA in Health Arts & Sciences. Watching others awaken and heal as a result of yoga has been profound and life-changing, leading Sierra to co-found Light A Path, a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing somatic therapies to underserved populations in western North Carolina.
