I wanted to create a place where people could get consistent relief from their stress, and peace in their day, said YogaSoul Owner Tarisa Parrish.

In just four years, business and community has multiplied at YogaSoul Center in Eagan. Staff size has tripled, class offerings have doubled, class sizes are five times larger, and globally-recognized teachers are brought in regularly for special workshops. YogaSoul will be celebrating community, growth and more at its free open house event on Friday, April 13, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
At a time of immense economic pressure, YogaSoul has become a place where people find reprieve from daily stresses. The Yoga & Pilates Center opened in 2008, in the midst of a recession that touched nearly everyone’s lives. YogaSoul owner Tarisa Parrish -- whose day job is a Director at Best Buy Corporate Headquarters -- said that’s when people needed help the most.
“When the economy took a downturn and our community faced the stress of the times, I wanted to create a place where people could get consistent relief from their stress, and peace in their day,” Parrish said. “People said I was ‘brave’ to start a business in such hard times, and I always smiled and responded that what I was offering had an inverse relationship to the economy. The harder the economy got, the more people needed the stress relief they receive from Yoga and Pilates.”
Before opening Yogasoul, Parrish envisioned a peaceful environment for strengthening the body and healing the soul, while creating sacred space to awaken consciousness through classes. By all accounts, they have surpassed their goals.
Parrish looks to the future to continue growing the healing and fitness center.
“I see YogaSoul growing and expanding into a larger space that enables us to grow our class offerings and services allowing us to serve our customer base even better than we do now,” Parrish said. “We plan to offer new retreats, trainings, and new service lines such as spiritual guidance and coaching.”
YogaSoul will be celebrating community, growth and more at its free open house event on Friday, April 13. From 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., people can stop by eat delicious food, experience shortened classes and Pilates reformer sessions, get pictures of their auras and participate in coloring meditations.
