Finally, an amazing yoga studio so close to home!
"Finally, an amazing yoga studio so close to home! The studio is in a business park that is a bit hard to spot, but you walk inside and it is a beautiful and tranquil space. I attended their free team-taught grand opening class and appreciated the opportunity to get a glimpse of the teaching styles of a variety of their instructors. Since then, I've been to a few classes with Stacy.
Things that have kept me coming back: lots of class times, different styles of yoga, and a very welcoming all levels vinyasa class! As a beginner, it's very reassuring to know I have the option to modify if I need, but also have the opportunity to take a more challenging option if it feels right that day. ''

We are given one body in this life, and as with all things we care about, if abused or neglected, it suffers. In the same way our bodies need attention, so do our tender psyches. For many of us, we are so completely drawn to the negative, we forget to see and take in the good. At 50 with a 20-year yoga practice, Noel whole-heartedly believes cultivating a consistent yoga practice strengthens and nurtures both the body and the soul. Yoga has brought her good health, peace, joy, self-acceptance and a sense of community. She teaches yoga in hopes that her students will reap the same. Noel is fun and funny, loves music and not taking herself or the practice too seriously. She allows her students to take her cues as suggestions and not dogma, and instead use sensation as their guide. The "yoga glow" won't come without effort, so be ready to be challenged. Noel believes the healing power of yoga is revealed when we wobble in our imbalances, fidget in our meditation, struggle to stay calm in long holds and deep stretches and often the most challenging, drop into child's pose instead of pushing past boundaries. Come to Noel's class, get to know yourself and learn to love who you discover.
Claudia, Vinyasa, Theta Meditation
Claudia Edwards has been an athlete all of her life. She loves that yoga teaches us to set aside things in life that are not serving us in the direct moment, and reconnect with body and breath. She discovered a love of the deep practice of yoga when her body needed time to heal from stress injuries. Vinyasa yoga satisfied a deep need to move, while the philosophy, breath work and meditation challenged her mind and spirit.
A Bay Area native, you can find Claudia immersed in the local community, bringing her love of people and connection into class as well as outside of the yoga studio. Her sense of play and easy going manner weave through her fun and upbeat classes.
Kristen, Vinyasa, Coaching
I have been practicing yoga for 20 years, teaching for 5. My understanding of yoga has developed and shifted over those years, and I truly believe the most powerful part of the practice is patience. The most difficult and challenging aspect of any pose is having acceptance and compassion for your body and yourself. That holds true for the other practices of yoga like meditation, pranayama, etc. Most of all, it is my intention to assist others in learning the art of inner listening, inner exploration and strengthening their energetic imagination, so that they may sense what it is like to be free and at home in their own body. To be in alignment from the inside, out.
I am an eternal yoga student, learning and finding inspiration from the earth, poetry, art, music, parenting, friendships, my teachers, etc. You will find me either practicing meditation, asana, pranayama, singing, painting, hiking, camping, cooking, reading, writing, connecting with others and infusing my life with as much true living as possible. Meaning, practicing the art of being in the present moment as much as I am able. I am imperfectly human.
As a yoga teacher, I create a safe space for all bodies, all levels to move freely with your breath. I invite my students to meet their body exactly as it is and to move with kindness and compassion. I teach vinyasa flow classes, encouraging students to focus on their breath through the movement and in the moments of stillness. I like to play a variety of music, bring lightness to the class and have fun while teaching!

Miche'le, Vinyasa & Prenatal
Miche’le was introduced to Yoga around 2006, while in college. After taking her first class she knew that Yoga would be apart of her life forever. However, It wasn’t until she gave birth to her son in 2015 when she took her Yoga practice more seriously. This is when she realized that practicing Yoga is more than getting into poses and going to classes; Yoga is a lifestyle! She learned that Yoga is a practice that helps strengthen the mind, body and spirit. She also believes that Yoga has healing attributes and the combination of a conscious breath, body alignment and meditation can help you reach a state of mind that allows the body to recover and heal. All of these great gifts that Yoga has to offer lead her in the direction of wanting to teach and help others find their best selves. Miche’le teaches Vinyasa Flow, Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga!
