"While San Francisco is full of yoga studios, it is difficult to find a studio that is a good fit. I've seen many yoga studios, including one with a version of Richard Simmons with a headset in 120F heat. Over the last 10 years, I have witnessed Yoga change from foreign and estranged (my first introduction to yoga was a class in "Stretching 101") to something emerging from off the fringe. Once in a while I hear folks saying, "Oh I should get back into yoga again." Yoga is becoming the thing more and more body’s need. Over the last two years, Yoga Mayu has become my home studio. It leans slightly towards the traditional side of yoga (mix of Raja, Flow, Ashtanga, Hatha) and I like this because you are less likely to injure yourself that way, and you leave feeling physically challenged and refreshed. The ambiance is calm, welcoming and generally allowing you to learn / teach yourself, without worrying about others around you. People are friendly. It's a great place to learn and recollect yourself before heading out into the big, bad world again"
