About us + how we got here

We believe in true Yogic fashion that nothing is separate. Everything is connected. We are a heart led, so-called 'business' motivated by giving back to those in need.

We have many interests! We could never land on a single thing to do - nor do we believe that you need to! 

Here in this space we work to connect communities, we give you a platform for your work, your shares, your knowledge, and to aid you in your personal growth. 

With a place for you to grow both internally + externally, through mindfulness practices, we support you on a spiritual level through Yoga work, to help you to be the strongest + most understood version of yourself. We believe this supports you in entrepreneurship + business. We offer you a platform through our socials for your business, creations, artwork, + photography. We even have a shop to feature your work in! 

Grow with us, in oh so many ways.

About Whitney

Jokester
Curious gal
Do-er of things
Yoga obsessed

Community Connector
 

I'm a gal who wants to create, share, learn, + authentically connect over kindness + curiousity. 


 

I would like to acknowledge and hold space for the kindness, intelligence, + wisdom offered to me by those I’ve met in my life, all of them teaching me valuable lessons. For the people who have supported me wholeheartedly - I fully recognize the importance of community in my life, and I would not have connected the dots to Tulā without these individuals. So to you, thank you. 

 

 

Tulā - Community is a direct translation of who I am. 

My main goal in life is to make people laugh. My second is to help.

 

With laughter + in Oneness,
