In 2014, Amy and Christina had an amazing opportunity presented to them. Their own chance to open a fitness studio that encompassed everything they have ever believed in. Sharing their passion with others, it was a dream come true. And just like that, Soul Space was born. A place where anyone can come to workout or get bodywork.

A place to be better.


Amy Burkett

Owner, Soul Space. Motivator. Friend. Mama. Cheerleader on the sidelines. I can truly say I’m living the life I set out to live. My goal has always been to help others, while growing and challenging myself. I started teaching fitness classes at 24 Hour Fitness in 1997. Despite teaching 5-7 fitness classes a day, I put myself through massage school. In 2003 I became a licensed massage therapist, and in 2005 I got my NASM Personal Training certification. Personal training and massage has been my passion ever since. And my biggest motivator? My amazing daughter, whose pure athleticism motivates me and inspires me everyday.


Christina Ghiggeri

Owner, Soul Space. Selfless giver. Fitness junkie. Passionate soul. Renoite to the core.A third generation Native Nevadan, I graduated from Wooster High School, followed by college at the University of Nevada, Reno (go Wolf Pack!) where I received a Bachelor’s in Health Ecology. Working as a Marketing Representative at MINDBODY eventually led to where I am now. My passion is healthy living, and the city of Reno. Combine the two, and Soul Space is exactly where I am meant to be. My other true love is helping others, and I have donated countless hours to local charity events including Mom’s on the Run, Polio Purple Pinky Trail Run & Walk, JUSTin Hope Foundation, and many others. I also serve as a board member for St. Mary’s Hospital, representing mindfulness and fitness.
