Our Mission

Moving Beyond’s mission is to provide accessible yoga and meditation classes to all interested individuals. Our goal is to increase awareness of holistic self-care practices through the practice of yoga and meditation. As a result, individuals will understand how yoga and meditation can help them move beyond their current state and improve quality of life, reduce stress, and promote healing.

Our Story

Moving Beyond is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Minneapolis, MN. The organization was founded in August of 2018. The founder of Moving Beyond recognized a need in the Lyn-Lake Minneapolis neighborhood for a community-centered holistic wellness facility that was affordable for everyone. Our yoga and meditation classes are 100% donation based.

Meet the Team

The Moving Beyond Board of Directors is responsible for the overall policy and direction of the organization, and delegates responsibility for day-to-day operations to the Studio Manager. As our membership and class size participation increases, we will be adding additional volunteer roles to support new program offerings.

Kim Schuster, Studio Manager and Instructor

Kim has been practicing yoga for 17 years and meditation for 9 years. She attributes yoga and meditation to helping her heal after being hospitalized for blood clots in the lungs in 2004 and again in 2010 after sustaining a spinal injury from a car accident. Besides the physical healing she has experienced, Kim believes yoga and meditation have also supported her personal and professional growth by improving her self-awareness, resilience to stress, and connection to self. Her goal is to inspire others to create their own self-care practices. In 2018, Kim took her first yoga teacher certification class and is actively working towards completing the YogaFit® 200-hour RYT Teacher Training. Kim has been leading guided meditation classes since 2010 and completed training as a Guided Imagery Therapist in 2018.
