We are SoulSpeak – your new Yoga Studio located in the heart of Wellington West.
who we are
A space to stretch, sweat, sit & savasana whether you’re here to move or here to meditate, our mission is simple – SoulSpeak is a studio for all, a place where you can fully be YOU. A space for the Yogis and the Non-yogis, the Newbies and the Gurus, the Warriors and the Happy Babies, the Yoginis and the YoGangsters. Our class styles offer a little something for everyone, whether you’re looking to unwind, power up, slow down, tune in, or vibe out.
We’re here to guide you, to inspire you, to play with you along the way, but ultimately this journey is for you. Yoga is not something you can acquire, it is an experience that must be practiced. We believe that it is here, in this studio, on your mat and within this practice that our authentic selves will ultimately be uncovered.
So we invite you to come, as you are, and we will welcome you with open (and sometimes sweaty) arms.
It’s time to believe in yourself the way we believe in you, to let go of expectation, to become inspired, to speak your true self, and let your soul guide the way.
Don’t sweat it. The only thing you need is yourself – this may sound cliché but we are serious. All you need to do is show up. Our studio is fully stocked with props for all your yoga needs, from blocks to straps to bolsters. Mats and towels will also be available to rent for $2 a use or you can pay $10 a month for the convenience of unlimited service. All we ask is that you come with an open mind and leave whatever expectations you have of yourself at the door.
So what’s stopping you? We already know you’re going to tell us you can’t touch your toes, but we’ll let you in on a little secret… you don’t have to be flexible to practice yoga. Contrary to popular belief, we do more on our mats than handstands and backbends. We will play, we will challenge ourselves and you will be amazed at what your body can do. At the end of the day yoga is not a goal, it is a process … or better yet, a practice.. and the deeper you open up to this idea the more truly flexible you will become, not only in your body, but in your mind and soul as well.
Why We Practice
Why Yoga? We can almost promise you’ll leave our studio feeling more energized than you did walking in. Yoga is all about strength, balance and flexibility in both the body and the mind. We offer a variety of styles, but here are some of the benefits you can typically expect from one of our classes – increased flexibility/mobility, muscle strength and full body toning, improved energy, circulation, digestion and respiration, protection and recovery from injury and sense of well being and peace both physically and mentally.
