The Full Story

Rise and SoulShine is a monthly yoga event started by Jessie Potter in 2015 to benefit her friend’s journey with Leukemia. It’s now hosted by Jessie, friend and business partner, Julianne Aerhee, and Vinchay Labs in Museum Park, Miami.  Class is held outside of the Perez Art Museum in the Northeast corner of the park every second Saturday of the month. (There are some exceptions, so check our Instagram, @rise.and.soulshine to double check the next date!) Often times, there’s live music played by the amazing Vito Lastayo while class is being held.  All donations go to the non-profit we’ve partnered with for the month, so please consider a minimum of a $5 donation. There’s no need to sign up in advance but please arrive around 15 minutes early to get checked in and set up. Bring a mat, water bottle, and friends and do some vinyasa yoga overlooking Biscayne Bay! 



Rise and SoulShine was started in April 2015 to raise money for Jessie’s best friend, Lauren Bourdon, and her campaign benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. To this day, Rise and SoulShine is proud to donate their earnings to different organizations every month. If you’re a local non profit organization and would like to partner with us, please reach out to Julianne at julaerhee@gmail.com


Rise and SoulShine welcomes like-minded vendors to participate in the event to either sell or donate products after class. If you’re interested in partnering with us, please contact erikrtaylor@gmail.com



There is parking in the Perez Art Museum (1103 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33132) which is closest to the event. If you’re looking for a cheaper option and are willing to walk a few minutes there is street parking along 2nd Ave, as well as a large lot accross the street from the Adrienne Arsht Center. An alternative to driving is to take the metro mover, which stops right at the Perez Art Museum (Museum Station.) 



You can donate with cash, check, or credit card on the day of the events. You can also donate through Venmo to jessie-potter, and PayPal at jessica@pritiyoga.com. We are so grateful for your donations. Thank you!
