An “HONEST SOUL”:

Suzie Mills, is an Air Force veteran, founder of Honest Soul Yoga and PenFed Foundation investee. Shortly after separating from the Air Force, Suzie launched her yoga studio business in February 2013. She felt that yoga provided grounding, personal empowerment and physical restoration and wanted to share that gift with others. Honest Soul Yoga, started in Susie’s basement, is now a national brand.
