San Francisco yoga studio founded in December of 2008, yoga mayu is known for being a down to earth yoga studio. yoga mayu is predominantly a Vinyasa yoga studio. Vinyasa is a term that covers a broad range of yoga styles; vinyasa at yoga mayu is predominantly drawn from the Ashtanga and Hatha traditions. The word Vinyasa means "breath-synchronized movement". This technique is sometimes also called Vinyasa Flow, or just Flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance.
Our mission is to provide a genuine and sustainable yoga practice that evolves the physical and emotional health of our students. At yoga mayu we strive to provide a safe inviting environment where students can develop a regular yoga practice. We offer some of the most talented yoga teachers in San Francisco; they are passionate about teaching and are always willing to take that extra step to ensure that no student feels left behind. We are proud to be known for the individual attention we provide. We believe that yoga is for everyone regardless of age and body type.
Since we believe that yoga takes you inside, wraps you in yourself and then transforms you, our studio's name, mayu, derives from the Japanese word for cocoon. Yoga acts as a cocoon in our lives. Among the many benefits of yoga are a healthy back and posture, strength and flexibility, mental clarity and an increased ability to reduce stress and manage it. With a consistent yoga practice, you begin the metamorphosis to living a self-healing, empowered life, where you have the potential to ascend to heights you never thought possible.
