Our Story

Our Mission Statement

Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you. (It’s actually Mother Teresa’s Mission Statement, but why reinvent the wheel when someone has so clearly nailed it?)

How we came to be

Over a decade ago, I was earning a living through marketing work for a handful of small businesses, one of which was a local yoga studio. That studio became my home. In 2016, we opened The Yoga Harbor in Torrance, California, serving a community with heart-healing, body-friendly yoga.

I loved learning about myself through yoga. I loved learning about myself as the owner/operator of our small business. I didn’t so-much love learning about myself through failure, but it brought the greatest lessons.

Closing our physical location at the completion of 2020 brought into life a new vision for our studio. The closing of our physical space taught me the true meaning of “holding space,” and it is my daily work to hold space for rest in an otherwise busy world. I focus on continued inspiration through blogging, podcasting, our on-demand channel, and specialized 1-on-1 teaching.

We look forward to meeting you wherever you are!
