About Us


Create Community. Transform Lives.


Founded by Paula Baake in 2008, Dancing Mind is more than just a yoga studio, Dancing Mind is a Movement. A community destination where people from all walks of life congregate to experience friendship and transformation. We are not about the pose. Dancing Mind is about real people, life, and authentic living. It’s a place where individuals from all walks of life come to move, connect and transform.


Yes, you will sweat. Yes, you will burn. Yes, your body will change.


BUT that is not our goal.


Our mission is to Create Community and to Transform Lives.


To teach you that at the core, we are all the same. That you are not alone.


We are here to make an impact in your life. To create change one person at a time.


We are here to get to know you – really. Your name, you goals, your wants, your fears. We are here to support you creating that change you want, whatever it may be to you – to breakthrough and transform.


Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or new yogi, or someone just looking for a place to de-stress and get fit, have heard about it through friends, or are just curious about what we are all about… WELCOME!

Our Values:



We foster a feeling of belonging, being, connecting, helping, serving, learning, laughing and having fun with each other based on mutual trust, respect and admiration. Our environment is safe and free of judgment, where people of all ages and backgrounds are able to communicate openly, authentically, learn, grown, accept, and ultimately transform themselves and others.



We are committed to going above and beyond to serve people with an open heart.



We hold a safe space, free of judgment, where individuals are comfortable with being seen, being vulnerable and being real.



We strive to live honestly and truthfully in every part of our lives. We believe integrity is the core quality of a successful and happy life.



It is an intentional and designed way of working together that harnesses the collective intelligence, imagination, and spirit of our community.



We create an environment that is filled with ease, joy and light. This leads to an exchange of ideas, problem solving and creativity.
