Hive Soul Yoga is a community based business. Our goal is to create affirming + uplifting spaces that bring people together who may not otherwise have met. We know there is a need for collective healing for people of color, and our larger community. As a business founded and run by women of color, we know how oppressive ideologies threaten our collective wellbeing. Hive Soul Yoga offers people space + tools to thrive in the chaotic conditions we live in. We hope to combat the damage of oppression by building community based in joy, healing + our collective strength.
We know health is about much more than our physical bodies. At Hive Soul Yoga, we want our community to be healthy in body, mind + spirit. Our goal is to hold space where people can heal their relationships to their bodies and themselves. We try to help people reconnect with their innate wisdom by offering them space to reflect + check the messages they are telling themselves. We are inundated daily with messages that make marginalized communities feel unworthy + less than. We provide a space to interrogate those messages, by helping people remember their inherent worthiness + practice self-love.
We are all about making the practice of yoga as accessible as possible. We acknowledge that yoga in the West is appropriative, and has made a commodity of centuries old Indian practices. As yoga practitioners who practice and were trained in the West, we see it as our responsibility to acknowledge that dysfunctional dynamic. We also know that yoga can be a tool for transformation that can help us heal our relationships to ourselves. We combat the legacy of commodification by holding yoga classes that are accessible for everyone, particularly members of communities mainstream yoga often excludes. Hive Soul Yoga was founded with the goal of making yoga accessible, equitable +welcoming. We welcome folks of every shape, shade, size, sexuality + gender identity to join us in this beautiful practice.
