    Soul Vida Workouts focus on whole body movement delivering cardio, endurance, strength flexibility and peace of mind.

    Soul Vida was inspired by Makita’s passion for holistic fitness, rejuvenation and body mind medicine.

    Physical fitness of course plays a big part in it, but what makes Soul Vida so unique is the dedication to overall wellbeing—here, decreasing stress is as important as body sculpting, cardio and strength.
