NORTH PARK YOGA
North Park Yoga is a welcoming yoga studio located in the heart of San Diego’s North Park neighborhood. The intention of the studio is to offer a quieter approach to yoga instruction. Classes are slower-paced, alignment-based, with emphasis upon breath, and a comfortable size, allowing for more personalized instruction.
This creates a safer environment for balanced movement, strengthening, and stress release.
North Park Yoga is an alternative for those seeking a more meditative, and contemplative yoga practice. The studio is committed to creating a welcoming space for the dedicated student to cultivate a personal yoga practice. With emphasis upon body mechanics, anatomy, and functional movement, the classes are ideal for runners, hikers, and cyclists, too.
North Park Yoga is San Diego’s only LGBT-owned yoga studio, and warmly invites students of all ages, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, experiences, and backgrounds. The studio embraces the concepts of body awareness, and body acceptance, in a supportive, non-judgmental teaching environment.
Yoga classes are open to beginning students, as well as experienced practitioners.

SPECIAL 3-CLASS SERIES! — BUILDING the WHEEL (60 minutes each class)– The wheel does not need to be re-invented, but it can be built again and again, and in various forms. Wheel Pose (चक्रासन Chakrāsana) —also known as Upward-Directed Bow Pose (ऊर्ध्व धनुरासन, Ūrdhva Dhanurāsana) — is a dynamic heart-opening posture. In this series (for beginners, or seasoned practitioners) students will learn a variety of asanas and less demanding backbends to prepare the body for this pinnacle pose. Students will learn proper alignment, in a breath-centered practice. This class is taught by guest instructor Suguna Sridhar. Individual classes: $17, or 3-class series: $45. This class is open to all students with North Park Yoga memberships. (November 2, 9, 16)
