What happens when a nightclub owner and yoga instructor partner up in a business venture? They create yoga workshops that incorporate heart-pumping bass and dubstep beats spun by the likes of FreQNasty and Rara Avis, in addition to traditional hatha and vinyasa lessons. Tim Dale and Tara Dale helm Yoga Tree, a studio that offers a wide variety of classes and yoga styles so that practitioners can find the style that best fits their practice, and instructors can lead classes in the specialty that speaks to them. And since opening their first studio in 1999, the duo has expanded their business to include six more locations throughout the Bay area to meet the demand for the Yoga Tree experience.
Teacher training courses are also available for those interested in leading their own classes. Students can opt for a 200- or 500-hour program, or elective classes that focus on Tantric yoga, handstands, and holistic Yoga Nidra. Yoga Tree also sells yoga-related products in their store, such as yoga attire, mats, books, and DVDs.
Walking into Headlights is almost like walking into your own home—that is, if you have impeccable taste and the ability to give yourself a Keratin treatment. Don't let the homey cups of tea fool you though––the staff is as cutting-edge as they are friendly.
