THE WORKOUT

Train the Body. Free your mind.

The Soul Vida Workout Method is a unique fusion of Yoga, Pilates and Martial Arts inspired workouts developed by Makita Gabriel.

Soul Vida™ has taken the best elements of yoga, pilates and martial arts and combined them with the core strengthening stability of low impact exercise to create a body transforming workout that delivers Instant Calm and Whole Body Fitness FAST.

Soul Vida was inspired by Makita’s passion for holistic fitness and body mind medicine.

Physical fitness of course plays a big part in it, but what makes Soul Vida so unique is the dedication to overall wellbeing—here, decreasing stress is as important as cardio and strength. Soul Vida is a refreshing and soothing mind-body class that melts away stress. 

The result is a workout that loves you back.
