Barre Class: on summer vacation!

Yoga Garden SF is excited to continue Barre 101, a fast-paced barre class which utilizes light weights and dance-based movements to compliment your existing yoga practice.

Instructor Mike Najjar will be out of town for a few weeks in August, but will resume classes on September 2.

Saturday, Aug 16
Tuesday, Aug 26
Thursday, Aug 28
Saturday, Aug 30

Mike has been a San Francisco resident of 24 years and happily takes advantage of the many health and wellness options the city has to offer. In addition to teaching Barre 101 classes, Mike enjoys yoga, running, and golf. Mike believes that all forms of exercise provide the perfect outlet for many of life’s challenges, whether they be physical or emotional.
He was drawn to the barre workout because of its low impact, strengthening, toning, and cardio elements. He feels that the Barre 101 class is a perfect complement for anyone who practices yoga and is excited to introduce the concept to YGSF.

Why a Yoga School?

by David Nelson

Yoga Garden SF may be a quaint boutique neighborhood yoga studio to you. We love that, but we like to think of ourselves as more than that. We call ourselves a yoga school because much of what we do at the Garden is scholastic: research and training through a structured, accredited curriculum, offering yoga teacher certification. Studio and school live under one roof because they need each other. more »

“Yoga Garden’s 300 Hour Core Module 1 was very special for me.  It allowed me to deepen my knowledge and experience of the energetics of asana while​ ​facilitating a path ​way​ in self-discovery through ​parallel ​meditation practices. ​B​est of all, I was able to work intimately with other students​/​teachers and gain enduring inspiration from all the great questions, discussions and teachings! more »
