"The outdoor vinyasa classes have been a welcome retreat from the confines of quarantine life. Most days I roll out my mat under the shade of a tree but many yogis prefer the sunny spots reminiscent of a heated indoor class. The Soul Yoga team has managed to marry the energy of the studio with the tranquility of being outdoors in the open air. It has been a lovely experience."
I appreciate Soul Yoga offering such a wide variety of safe class options. During quarantine I regularly utilized the virtual classes and online content, and have now added both in studio and outdoor classes since the reopening. I wasn’t sure how I would like the outdoor classes, but have found them to work well in providing a great experience in a safe environment. It’s so nice to visit with the teachers in person and see familiar faces again.- Sarah
"What I learned doing the 30 day Yoga Challenge: I loved it and found it to be an eye-opening experience. Here are some of the lessons I learned....
First week, my body was wondering what in the world I had done. Lesson: the best thing for a sore body is another workout. Second week, I kept seeing the same people in many of my classes which was fun. Lesson: It's fun to workout with familiar faces and it doesn't have to be people you already know. You make new friends this way! Third week, all I thought about was which yoga class I would go to next. Lesson: it takes a commitment to work in exercise. Fourth week, I was feeling really good and felt more energized after doing yoga at the end of a long day of work. Lesson: even though you are tired, a good workout will revive you. Final week, I'm at the end of my challenge and am starting to figure out a way to work in more yoga into my routine after it's done. Lesson: keep going, use all this hard work to springboard consistent positive changes and make it happen by planning ahead."

"Over the past 3+ months I have been able to dedicate more time to my practice than I ever had before. The variety of options has allowed me to do this. I love practicing in studio but with a busy work and family schedule I was mainly limited to 6am classes. With the virtual live classes and the 24 hr link I have been able to practice when it works for me. It has also give me the ability to take classes from several different instructors and I have gained an appreciation for everyone’s unique style. I have explored classes that I never did in the past. For example, I had never taken a Yoga Nidra class and have found it to be quite enjoyable. My 7 year old daughter loves to participate with me on Thursday evenings and it puts her right to sleep! Taking part in the 30-day challenge has really given me a greater appreciation for my practice while also keeping me accountable to a goal.On another note, the ability to react and adjust quickly in times of crisis as Allison and team did is a true testament to her ability as a business owner. Job well done!"- David Hardy
"Referred to Allison at Soul Yoga by other physicians. A no nonsense approach to the exercises, with instructions given a calm, pleasant voice that left no doubt in my mind that this teacher was a true professional. It took me six months to convince my wife, a woman who does not really like to exercise, that Allison was the one for her. We both wanted to improve balance and flexibility. We were in the right place, with the right instructor. My wife and I look forward to our sessions, and we both feel that we have made progress."
"The outdoor classes provide a great way to do yoga with a community in a safe environment. It is great to do these classes in person and still maintain social distancing."
"My first class at Soul Yoga was the first day of the challenge. I had taken yoga before but definitely not to this extent. Now, after completing the 30 classes, not only do I feel accomplished, but I am dedicated to what I can now call my yoga practice. I am ten pounds lighter physically, and I also feel lighter mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It's not a coincidence that I laugh even more and enjoy small things in life. I think yoga has allowed my body to keep up with my spirit. I feel so STRONG. Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is the beginning of something wonderful for me! I LOVE the community at Soul Yoga—you guys are really great people, and I've so loved learning from you."
"I really do have to thank you and all the amazing instructors for this challenge, the beauty was I got to experience each instructors class except maybe 1. I can definitely say that this has changed me, obviously physically, but I can't explain how much internally as well. I really feel like I was able to tap into my "soul" and learned to push everything thru my mat!! I now understand that my yoga practice has to be a part of me, lifelong; and is as essential as eating or sleeping!! Thank you again, it was so awesome and will continue to be!!"
"When I started yoga, it was strictly for exercise. As I have practiced more, I have discovered that yoga has brought me a deeper awareness of myself and the world around me. Yoga makes me a better wife, mother, and friend. I am thankful that Soul Yoga has brought to OKC a beautiful space to practice together."
"Yoga has been amazing for me!!! After 3 back surgeries-yoga has helped me to increase my strength and flexibility to levels I never thought possible. I love Soul Yoga's classes, style and music!!! So happy to practice in a welcoming beautiful studio with great teachers and great energy."
"The beauty of Soul Yoga is the encouraging atmosphere. I struggled with finding the right practice for years, but I've come to love the vinyasa flow and now crave the heated classes. After only a month of weekly practice I accomplished goals that I never thought I'd be strong enough to master. Every class at Soul Yoga offers the perfect mix of enthusiasm and relaxation provided by the great music and the wonderful teachers."
