New Health Coaching Program
Thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, we are excited to announce our new Health Coaching Program, which will enable selected Bounty & Soul participants to embark on a 12 week journey to holistic well-being. Our two certified health and wellness coaches, Valerie Holbert and Christine Elliot, will be working one on one with participants, supporting and assisting them in creating and achieving personal goals. They will also lead group classes to create a network of support and community. Health coaches are professionally trained, caring counselors that work with participants to explore specific concerns and discover the tools needed for a lifetime of balance. Part of this grant will also allow for the continued expansion of our partnership with the Yoga Service Movement, including additional yoga resources and monthly health and wellness presentations by Danielle Rottenberg, a certified Ayurveda Yoga Practitioner and Aromatherapist.
Inclement Weather Policy
In an effort to keep our volunteers and participants safe, our inclement weather plan follows the lead of Buncombe County Schools. That means,
If Buncombe County Schools are cancelled, Bounty & Soul markets are cancelled.
If Buncombe County Schools are released early due to snow, Bounty & Soul afternoon markets are cancelled.
If Buncombe County Schools have a delay, Bounty & Soul markets continue as normal.
If you are ever in question, please call the Bounty & Soul hotline at 828-419-0434 or check our Facebook page for the most up to date information.
As part of our continually expanding Latino Outreach Program we have introduced FREE Zumba classes to promote a healthy lifestyle within the community.
