What is SoulJour?
For the remainder of 2020, we’ve partnered with TreeSisters – an organization we believe is doing great things in the world! TreeSisters works to empower local communities in remote areas,by contributing to the reforestation of tropical areas decimated by fires and clearcutting.
TreeSisters exists to elicit collective responsibility for planetary restoration at the grass roots level with a focus on women and tropical reforestation. They channel 80% of member donations to exemplary existing reforestation organizations in the tropics with whom they partner to restore ecosystems. The remaining 20% funds our behavior change and consciousness shift work with women to reinstate feminine leadership, and normalize collective ownership of planetary restoration.
A portion of all proceeds and 100% of all donations will go towards planting our SoulJour Forest!

Colin has over 10 years of teaching experience including group classes, retreats, teacher trainings, and leading advanced workshops on anatomy, voice and human movement patterns. She designs yoga sequences specifically targeted to ignite the healing process. I am fascinated by the mirror of the subtle body and how it reflects the physical body. The interplay of the two bodies inspires my teaching style and affords me great compassion for my students and the world around me. Colin is the front woman of several bands in Portland including The our personal favorite, blue rock soul band, The Colin Hogan Trio.
Emily began teaching yoga in early 2010 after experiencing in her own body a deeply profound impact on her being as well as the ripples it created off the mat. Since 2010, she has completed multiple continuing education courses and coached teacher trainings. In 2015, she took the leap and left my corporate office job to pursue her dream of teaching yoga full time. Emily currently teaches at Yoga Pearl and volunteers as a teacher for the non-profit Living Yoga. She also loves being in nature, playing music in her band Syran and collaborating with her tribe on interesting retreats and events.
Wah was born into the lineage of Kundalini Yoga and the Sikh faith, hence my Indian name. I have been teaching Kundalini Yoga since I was 18 when I graduated high school as a certified Yoga teacher. She lives a yogic lifestyle more than a religious one, and is a big believer that all paths and practices lead us to our personal truth. She am so blessed to get to share these teachings and feel like I have the best job in the world!
Her mama is Gurmukh Khalsa and she is a world-renowned Kundalini Yoga teacher, so I have had the honor of learning from one of the best. Her goal in life is to empower people, to give them tools to become the masters of their own lives. Now Wah is a mama of her own after just having a baby 6 months ago.
