Studio + Teachers

The Mission

is to create a place where people can come and discover how holistic fitness works through physical practice and mindful living. At Solshine we believe that yoga should be the backbone of every fitness regimen. We have designed our schedule around a strong yoga practice. We offer classes that will re-shape your body and your mind. We welcome you to our studio. We are committed to supporting your journey with dedication, knowledge and open hearts. We hope that when you walk through our doors you feel welcome and warm.

The Story

begins in Clemson, SC where owner, Brandy Jones, began to pursue her dreams of bridging a mind/body practice with her background in fitness. As Clemson’s only hot yoga studio, Solshine quickly became a place of community for men and women of all ages who were searching for something more than fitness and more than yoga. We are a non-competitive atmosphere that will challenge you to grow, to embrace whole body fitness and to live with a little more compassion for ourselves and each other. Join our tribe and meet us exactly where you are. Let’s awaken together.

Brandy Jones

Solshine Owner, Yoga Junkie, Cat lover, secret talent: I know how to Make pies.

Brandy Jones has been a lover of fitness since she was 19 when she received her first fitness certification. “I have always loved helping people live their best life through fitness and nutrition and teaching group classes was the perfect fit. After a devastating loss everything changed. As my practice became a vehicle towards healing, it was became evident that transforming the mind would serve to change my body more than any workout ever could. This became my balance and my mat became my teacher. Through the integrated practice of yoga, and fitness I became stronger than I ever had been before physically and mentally. I knew then that I wanted to connect with my students at the heart level, I wanted to help others embrace stillness and strength simultaneously, awakening to a more compassionate way of living. Brandy’s programs are approved through ACE and Yoga Alliance and equally encompass the mind and the body through powerful yet accessible class offerings. Her approach to whole body balance will inspire everyone who walks through the doors to embrace their best life ever.
