About Us

Higher Self Yoga (HSY) is a spiritual path for the modern era, offering self-growth and self-awareness tools to reach your highest potential and live a healthy, joyful, enlightened life. We believe that the first step to achieving balance of heart, mind, and action is the desire for inner growth. We don’t push our philosophy; we support your self-growth journey and connection to your Higher Self through a wealth of resources to help you find balance, whether you’re at your desk or on-the-go. Our engaging and diverse community is a place where you can ask questions and get authentic answers on topics from spirituality and parenting, to karma and reincarnation — and everything in between!

Our Mission

Higher Self Yoga provides the tools you need to increase joy, purpose, and peace in your life. We offer virtual classes, a mentorship program, community, meditation, mindfulness, and visualization techniques, expert posts, books, videos, and more to support your growth, understand your psychology, deepen your self-awareness, and live a more fulfilled life. We teach you how to balance the heart, mind, and action and to overcome the inner obstacles that keep you from achieving your highest potential. It is our utmost goal to help you lead healthy, productive and enlightened lives by connecting to the heart and, ultimately, to the Higher Self.
