Event Rental Options and Membership

If you're a freelance yoga teacher or instructor looking to host your magical ceremonies, rituals, classes, privates, retreats, circles, gatherings, or workshops, I highly recommend becoming a member. As a member, you'll receive special renting conditions, exclusive invitations to team gatherings and workshops, and access to reduced or even free classes and trainings. I’m looking for yoga/dance/pilates teachers/instructors, coaches, and space holders. I’m open to various styles of yoga, movement, singing, art, meditation, relaxation, and healing practices.  You can also utilize the space for massage or manual therapy sessions and coaching sessions. Of course, you are more than welcome to just host an event for our regular booking conditions. 

 

Our Inviting Space

At Radiant Heart Studio, I offer you a bright, cozy, and thoughtfully designed space adorned with pastel colors. Expect a clean and organized environment, intentionally crafted to inspire, dream, practice, sweat, slow down and tune in.
