Above and Beyond Hot Yoga Center

Studio founders Shoshana Treichel and Ashley Ramsay-Naile first collaborated on a reception for the 2015 Mobile Jewish Film Festival. They quickly formed a friendship as they bonded over their shared ideology of helping others embark on a personal journey of self-discovery and renewal. As time passed, they kept coming back to their fundamental beliefs and when the opportunity presented itself, the two women decided to take on a new adventure by opening a Yoga Studio. The studio would allow for a variety of yoga honoring each practitioner with love and support.

When it came time to name the studio, Shoshana reminisced about how their friendship had evolved from their first successful collaboration. She remembered the time they spent to organize every detail of the reception honoring visiting Director Nancy Spielberg after the showing of her documentary film. The film was a post WWII movie about overcoming adversity and reaching above all obstacles for the impossible. The name of the film, fitting enough, was Above and Beyond, (www.aboveandbeyondthemovie.com). The name encompasses the very essence of the journey to open up “Above and Beyond” Hot Yoga Center. When Shoshana shared her idea with Nancy Spielberg, she was ecstatic in her support.

Shoshana has been teaching yoga since 2007 and practicing since 1993. She and her husband, Jake, moved to Mobile in 2014 with the United States Coast Guard. She wanted to bring health and happiness that comes from yoga to the people of the Gulf Coast region in a way that was approachable, empowering and most importantly, fun!

Shoshana and her team’s deepest wish is to help each person access and develop the strength, grace, health, and focus that resides in each and every one of us! We are excited you want to start your yoga journey with Above and Beyond Hot Yoga Center. See you soon!

Namaskarum!
