the origin of Source Yoga
founders Erin Joosse and Melissa Paz
how Source Yoga began
Erin Joosse and Melissa Paz founded Source Yoga in Tacoma’s North End in September 2005, and opened their second studio location in University Place in May 2011. After 10 wonderful years of collaboration, the two decided to complete their business partnership, and in 2015, Erin became the sole owner of Source Yoga. Erin will be forever grateful for the journey of partnership they went on together in the creation of Source Yoga.
Over the years, Source Yoga has matured to be not just a place to practice asana – the physical aspect of yoga – but a place to cultivate awareness through the practice of mindfulness. Through mindfulness, we can discover our inner resources for health, healing, and self-care, and access a deeper experience of ease, peace of mind, and compassion for self and others.
