Soma Vida was founded in 2008 by Laura Shook Guzman as the first ever heal and wellness focused co-working space in Austin, TX. In the past 11 years the space has served hundreds of founders of local wellness businesses from massage therapists to psychologists and yoga instructors.
The space is designed to be a blank canvas with the space for founders to grow their concepts and test them. The central location on East Cesear Chavez provides an easily accessible space for meetings, event rentals and classes.
In 2018 Soma Vida partnered with The Un.Inc to provide founder-focused education to the first women's cohort in the space. In 2019 the partnership grew into a full campus concept, bringing Laura's concept of founder-first and work-live balance to life in a new way. Un.Inc's unique 3-month cohort program is now available for individuals and teams alike and runs year round in the space.
The space serves as a community hub for hundreds of collectives and founders in wellness and the creative fields. It offers a uniquely curated mix of programming for founders, including yoga, meditation, mentorship and education. It is also home base for dozens of creative entertainment events each year from local musicians, artists and immersive art performances. The food truck court is curated with vegan food from various local food truck owners.
