In the wake of the horrific killings in Texas, Maya wanted to share this video. Additionally, you might look into, movement of more than 8 million moms, mayors, survivors, students, and everyday Americans working to end gun violence.


The Yoga Center Santa Cruz has moved out the Front Street studio. All 2022 in-person classes and zoom will be held in the Veteran Hall, Santa Cruz which is located at 846 Front St. adjacent to the downtown Santa Cruz post office. Ample parking is nearby at the parking garage north of Trader Joe’s behind the Galleria. Our in-person classes will be taught here until a permanent home is found. Props are available but we encourage students to bring their own mats. For other YCSC instructors who teach over zoom, please see their schedules for details.

YCSC encourages everyone to be vaccinated but it is not required.

YCSC offers classes in Iyengar-style hatha yoga from beginner to advanced levels both in-person and over zoom. Our studio currently at the Veteran’s Hall features a spacious room and is well equipped with the essential props i.e. mats, sandbags, blankets, etc.

Our approach emphasizes precise alignment and develops strength, flexibility, stamina and balance. Through regular practice, students gain physical health, mental peace and emotional stability.
