Invigorating Ashtanga yoga engages all of the body’s muscle groups with a range of classes that incorporate six dynamic sequences, controlled breathing, and personalized attention. The Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series begins with such fundamentals as sun salutations, standing postures, and levitation, imbuing students of any skill level with the flexibility and endurance needed to tackle more challenging tableaus. Improvisation sessions churn through pose sequences with a fast-paced flurry of Vinyasa techniques that integrates measured breaths into the transitions while unveiling a host of fabled postures, including shoulder stands and full backbends.
The two studio locations boast schedules that accommodate busy days with morning and evening sessions throughout the week, and showers soothe rejuvenated muscles while removing unsightly nametag tattoos. Click here to view the schedule for Hillcrest or click here for Pacific Beach.

Namaste Pacific Yoga
At Namaste Pacific Yoga, seasoned instructors dissolve stress and its symptoms with a relaxing blend of stretches, exhalations, and meditation. The studio specializes in Ashtanga Vinyasa instruction, which weaves ancient poses and deep breaths into a flowing sequence that cultivates strength, flexibility, and stress relief. Some routines also feature focusing exercises. These can clear the mind of panic-inducing thoughts, such as a giraffe nabbing your diary from your second-story window. In addition to sharing personalized tips during group classes, teachers lead one-on-one yoga sessions to customize students' practices as they perfect their technique and alignment. After class, students may steam away any lingering tension in the studio's showers.
Studio owner Chris van der Merwe also fortifies bodies with a stockade of vitamins, probiotics, and other nutritional supplements. His nutrition boot camps teach attendees how to boost energy by eating healthy meals that eschew pizza-wrapped candy bars stuffed with pizza-wrapped candy bars.
