The Birth Of EnSoul

EnSoul is Plugging EN 2 your SOUL...

I knew there was something missing in my life. I remain dedicated and determined to find and connect to that pure, immaculate, untouched and untainted essence within myself, my soul.

Yoga helps me do that every day. I teach yoga all over metro Detroit. I also teach in Los Angeles California and internationally.

When my brother, Eric Paskel, founded Yoga Shelter in 2004, I found my home. I became the head teacher, director of teacher development, and co-facilitator of Life and Teacher Training. I loved working for a company whose vision and mission lined up with my life’s path. However, in 2015, changes occurred that made it impossible for me to call Yoga Shelter my home any longer. My relationship with the studio ended.

Many other people also ended their involvement with the studio. But no one wanted to stop their soul from shining. My brother had moved to California and was busy rebuilding his studio. I was here in Michigan and I knew my truth. It was my turn to open a studio. It scared me. I never ran a business. It would be so much easier for me to join someone else’s studio. Nonetheless, I knew I could not compromise who I am because of fear. I am clear about carrying the torch in Michigan. I am terrified, yet empowered by the years I have trained for this moment.  

Now the moment is ready for me! I found a location and signed a lease. After a few months of building and landlord issues we had to walk away… That was rough. Holding my head high and never giving up, the search for a home base resumed. Ferndale, a city bursting with organic energy and endless potential drew me in. Finally, I have landed my dream space.

210 W. 9 mile Rd. Ferndale is home sweet home!

We are right smack in the heart of downtown, in the middle of the main strip, with a giant public parking lot!
