New Class! Meditation and Yoga


Starting in December 15th, we’re excited to introduce Meditation and Yoga from 6:15am – 7:15am Tuesday and Thursdays w/Meredith Holt!

December is busy month for everyone which can be overwhelming to our minds and bodies. We couldn’t think of a better time to introduce a meditation and yoga class.

What better way to start your morning than to experience the calming clarity of prāṇāyāma, gentle movements and a guided meditation for a more focused mind and a reawakened body.

Intrigued? Give it a try and let it become a pivotal part of your week!

Featured Teacher: Elaine Oyang


For this segment of Yoga Garden’s Featured Teacher, we caught up with Elaine and learned about her yoga journey, her love for food and nutrition and her sense of adventure!

(YGSF) Tell us about yourself! What was your first job? Any fun hobbies or personal interests?

(Elaine) I was born in California, but grew up in Taiwan. I came to yoga out of curiosity, when a newly opened yoga studio passed a flyer to me one day. I was in high school then, juggling homework, exams, college applications, as well as other extracurricular activities. I heard yoga supposedly helps you relax, so I coaxed my mom to go to our first class together (she still does yoga till this day!). Needless to say, my first class was more of a challenge than relaxation, but that class brought a heightened awareness to my body. I was sore in places I had never thought much about before!
