“For many individuals, substance abuse and homelessness are inextricably intertwined. Indeed, substance use is often both a precipitating factor and a consequence of being homeless. Further, individuals who are homeless rarely have substance use disorders alone—many have serious mental illnesses, acute and chronic physical health problems, and histories of trauma.”
— -2010 Vulnerability Index Study, Charlotte Housing Authority

The mission of One-breath.org is to end the cycle of chronic homelessness, incarceration, and trauma that often accompanies the disease of addiction and mental health issues through the use of yoga and mindfulness practices.             

Our vision is to help in healing the whole person - body, mind, and spirit - in order to be a force for social change in the Charlotte Community - One Breath at a Time.
