our story

TRIBE YOGA traces its roots back to 2016 in the sunroom of our founder’s home. Sonia Shultis was newly relocated to the area and in search of community. Following true form of “build it and they will come,” Sonia invited friends and neighbors to practice in her home. Over time, the friends told their neighbors and the neighbors told their friends, growing the newly formed TRIBE to support a handful of local teachers and a variety of class offerings. Seeing the need for more connection and with these humble origins in mind, Sonia felt the opportunity to expand. In the Spring of 2017, TRIBE YOGA officially became Oneonta’s first dedicated yoga studio and we’ve been flowing and growing together ever since! TRIBE YOGA is, and has always been, founded on the power of human connection, the value of all life, and the peace created when we feel at home.
