What happens when two people meet and connect over similar interests? They do the things, of course! Brandi and Amber met each other in the corporate world in 2013 and had no idea what their friendship would bloom into. "You do yoga? I do yoga... Did we just become best friends? Yep! Do you wana do yoga together sometime? Yep!" Fast forward, their mutual passion for not just the practice of yoga, but for finding a way to create opportunities where people can truly show up just as they are, and be themselves, runs just as deep today as it did day one. We are not just a yoga studio, we are a true community.


"We want every single human to feel comfortable walking into our space, to come as you, feel like family from day one, and feel the sense of support, encouragement and acceptance. We want everyone to leave feeling happy, confident and empowered in their own skin."


- Brandi and Amber, Elevate Co-Founders
