Community Engagement

We are committed to social justice and pledge to continue our own inner work of understanding the constructs of oppression and privilege. Now more than ever, we strive to create a safe space for self-inquiry, connection, growth, and accountability. Our movement and mindfulness practices are tools for transformation and liberation.

At SoulShine Studios, our vision is to impact our community, society, and the planet through leadership, accessible services, partnerships, and in-kind/monetary support.

Seva, or selfless service, is a yoga practice that we recognize, honor, and promote in our classes and beyond.
