Bringing You the Magic of Yoga
Soulful Yoga Connections began September 2020 with the intention to offer yoga outdoors to allow students to connect to nature and each other through Yoga in the Park, SUP Yoga and outdoor classes & events. It is a place of inspiration & growth as we strive to incorporate a variety of practices in movement, breath, and meditation on land and water. Yoga in the Park is offered at the beautiful Inverness Liberty Park during the Spring, Summer and Fall months. SUP Yoga is offered in Crystal River, FL year round.
As our yoga community grew, The Soulful Shala was born as a gathering place for students of yoga to practice, share, experience, learn and grow. Located in a quiet neighborhood in Inverness, FL, Soulful Shala is a home based yoga studio created for the yogi or yogi-to-be with a soulful & well intended heart. This enclosed space allows for more intimate and more detailed classes to be offered.
As teachers, our intention is to offer high quality services, accessible and inclusive to all by offering you a broad range of yoga classes and experiences. So get excited and come experience the magic with us!
PLEASE NOTE: Address to the Soulful Shala will be provided after you register for class!

"Having been a caregiver for several years, I have been trying to redefine my life & implement some self-care through yoga. I thought it would be relatively easy because of my military background, yet it proved otherwise. I met Stephanie who encouraged me every step of the way even through the onset of Covid. Yoga has been a vital part of my self-care, it has grown me spiritually, has impacted my life in a positive manner and has given me a wonderful tribe of people that I now call friends. Namaste
