A San Francisco Yoga Studio

A Yoga Studio that Bends (the Rules)

  • Dec 3, 2009
  • by
As someone who practices yoga 5-6 days a week, I'm pretty picky about the studios I frequent, which is why I was so excited to find YogaWorks. Not only do they have the cheapest unlimited monthly rate I've ever encountered ($99), but they have a diverse selection of classes, styles and skill levels that can accomodate everyone, from the cirque de soleil contortionists to the "can't touch my toes" types. When the typical yoga class costs $18-20, a monthly rate of $99 is a godsend.

The Mysore teacher, Magnolia Zuniga, who is authorized by yoga master Sri K. Pattahbi Jois, has been nothing short of inspiring for my practice. I'm working through a hamstring injury (it's been 8 months now. When will it end?) and her advice and knowledgeability about Ashtanga, the breath and the body have been incredibly nourishing in times of frustration and defeat.

In addition to Ashtanga, YogaWorks also offers classes in Iyengar, Vinyasa flow, ISHTA and Therapeutic Yoga. The teachers, as well as the staff, go out of their way to help you realize your full potential, not just in yoga, but in life too! What other yoga studio gives you advice on retirement benefits, brownie recipes and do-it-yourself bang trims?   

Their facilities are impeccable, high ceilings in the two expansive studios, great bathroom and shower rooms and a store that sells clothing, water bottles, props, CDs and books that provide greater awareness and in-depth teachings of the yoga tradition. An overall feeling of tranquility pervades the atmosphere. Plus, they always have hot tea brewing, and a free towel is provided before class.

If you want some celebrity street cred, YogaWorks has that too. Just a few of the celebs who practice at YogaWorks (granted, at their NY studio) are Jessica Biel, Heather Graham and Sarah Jessica Parker.

I can't recommend this place enough. YogaWorks for YOU.

About this topic


YogaWorks has studios in New York, Los Angeles, Orange County and Northern California. At YogaWorks you will find classes in all styles and at all levels from classical Iyengar and Ashtanga, to Vinyasa flow, ISHTA and Therapeutic Yoga. They take particular pride in their programs for beginning Yoga students, children, athletes, seniors and people in need of rehabilitation, all of which feature their trademark YogaWorks approach: safe, compassionate and skillful teaching.

The founders of YogaWorks, Maty Ezraty, Chuck Miller and Alan Finger believed in Yoga’s power to change lives. They came together from different parts of the world, from different Yoga disciplines, and from different life experiences to share a passion for, and commitment to, bringing Yoga to more people. They did not aspire to be businessmen or trendsetters; they were first and foremost students, teachers, and practitioners. They got on their mats to practice everyday – it’s how they lived and grew.

When they founded their school, they saw an opportunity, indeed an obligation, to bring together many styles of Yoga under one generous, open, flowing umbrella - YogaWorks. They sought to uphold the 5,000-year-old tradition of Yoga by infusing their programs with integrity, quality, authenticity, and accessibility to all who came through their doors. Their hearts and minds were always open. And their vision inspired thousands.
