About Us

Our Why: at Solshine Yoga, we believe that being a human has the potential to be a very beautiful and pleasurable experience filled with love, peace, and joy on this magical planet we call Earth.  For many reasons, being a human in this modern world has become complicated.  Our mission is to provide a safe space where everyone can simply show up for themselves and find self-realization: fulfillment of one’s own potential.  As your instructors, we are here to guide you towards a higher awareness of your highest potential and to support you in that self-transformation process.

Our How: We utilize different styles of yoga, breathwork, reiki, meditation, aromatherapy, sound healing, positive affirmations, herbal medicine and ancient spiritual philosophies with the intention of bringing each student into an elevated state of mental, emotional and physical well-being (Mind, Body & Spirit).

Our What: Our group classes, workshops and private services are designed to calm and balance the nervous system, which in turn regulates vital functions in your body and leads to a happier, healthier human experience.  Modern science demonstrates that the human body and the entire universe is made up of vibrations of energy. We’re here to share in the peaceful vibes with you!
