THE HONEST SOUL YOGA STORY
We invite you to experience Yoga through movement, sweat, laughter, meditation, and community! Connection with ourselves and with others is what HSY is all about, and we’ve designed our spaces with that in mind. We believe spaces that foster personal growth and a sense of true belonging are just as integral to our wellbeing as a heathy heart, or strong bones and muscles.
Through classes, workshops and lifestyle programs led by excellent, warm, and inspiring teachers Honest Soul Yoga provides an opportunity to meet others, and meet ourselves, through genuine connection, personal accountability, new challenges, and tons of love!
Being a female and veteran-owned wellness company we are humbled and grateful to lead an exceptional and compassionate teaching team that shares our vision, and is committed to creating spaces where people from all walks of life can take off their uniform - in whatever way it shows up in their life - and simply come home to themselves through movement and meditation.
See you on the mat!

How Honest Soul Yoga Got Started.
The company was founded by Air Force Veteran, Suzie Mills. After deployment to Afghanistan she returned home determined to build a business that would leave a positive impact on the world. In 2013 Suzie left her career in IT to launch a wellness business that could strengthen and support physical and mental well-being through the practice of Yoga. Suzie found that Honest Soul Yoga not only became a place of connection for women and men in her hometown, but also become a tremendous source of inspiration for her own healing after her time in the military.
In 2016 the company’s Co-Owner and COO, Julia Lopez, came on board to lead teacher development and direct yoga programs, transforming Honest Soul Yoga's formats into a streamlined, all-levels line-up that merges exercise science with yoga tradition. In 2018 Julia joined in an official capacity as co-owner, spearheading the company's expansion into new markets.
Julia is also the founder of Practice Everywhere. Now, together, Suzie and Julia co-owner Practice Everywhere which is a digital yoga, fitness, and meditation company that also leads retreats and trainings around the world. Practice Everywhere is the exclusive online, training, and retreat partner of Honest Soul Yoga Studios.
