Welcome Reyna and thank you for your question. The only issue with running a business form your home is whether the zoning permits the property to be used for a business or only as residential. Do you know the zoning designation of the house you are planning to purchase? If it allows a mixed use you would be able to use it for the mixed use purposes. If not there is a process called a variance which allows you to request a change in the zoning to accommodate the type of use that you are seeking.
So mine main question is can the family of the president of the non profit live in yoga ashram property? Thank you! Regards, Rayna The answer would be yes if the zoning and land laws permit this.
