Just a five minute walk from West Cliff Drive, the studio is a short bike ride away from downtown, Natural Bridges State Park and Wilder Ranch State Park. It's a short drive to deeper redwood forests in Henry Cowell and Big Basin State Parks. The area is also blessed with world-class surf breaks, endless miles of mountain biking trails, and a variety of other outdoor adventure opportunities.
Nestled in the Swift Street Courtyard at the corner of Swift and Ingalls Streets, our fifteen yoga teachers are inspired to offer you yoga classes that are accessible, sustainable and transformational.
