Who we are
After years of admiring each other’s practices and teaching styles, Jessica Caplan and Ally Bogard teamed up to create SoundMind as a way of sharing their personal practices of clearing, connecting and conjuring. Their vision was to create a potent set of practices that are as practical as they are ethereal, and as rooted in everyday reality as in Spirit, in order to help others build their own practice of connection to self and to Source.
With a combined 20+ years of teaching yoga, they are both dedicated yoga and meditation practitioners, and this project draws its inspiration from years of practice in prayer, plant medicine and spiritual devotion. Jessica’s unique way of intuitively channeling healing through sound, combined with Ally’s intelligent and elegant teaching style produce a set of tools for listeners to receive a wealth of physiological, emotional and spiritual benefits. SoundMind is brought to you with love for your light and to aid you on your safe and joyful journey “home”.
