Our Mission

State of Being is deeply interested in how individuals and communities become empowered through a refined mind-body relationship. We believe that once learned, the tools of yoga, mindfulness and self-care can be life-changing. We acknowledge however, that access to these tools is generally restricted to those with the economic and social privileges to attend yoga and meditation classes, courses and retreats. 

Our mission is to make the tools of yoga, mindfulness and self-care practices available to and inclusive of everyone in our community.



“Neuroscience research shows that the only way we can change the way we feel is by becoming aware of our inner experience and learning to befriend what is going inside ourselves.”
