Celebrating 14 years as a Studio!
It takes miracles, hard work and dedicated students to keep a small Studio going.
A huge "thank you" to all of our dedicated students!


 In August we celebrated 14 years as an “official” Yoga Center.  A big THANK YOU to all the students and teachers who joined us at our potlucks, and are showing their continued support for our Center.

I have been teaching yoga full-time in San Diego and East County since January 1996.  We began in a student’s living room, then a Diet Center, Gyms, and 3 years at a Karate Studio until we opened up our own Studio doors on August 1, 2000.  Now we have been at this 2nd location 4 1/2 years. My how time flies!  It seems like just yesterday we were laying down new carpet and painting the walls.  I am honored to be able to provide East County with wonderful yoga teachers, and safer, smarter, softer yoga.
