  • Nestled in a quiet valley in the heart of San Francisco Yoga Tree Hayes is a home away from home, a base for your yoga journey. The lobby is often full of students chatting and visiting with front desk staff or each other as they gather for class. As you stow your shoes next to your fellow yogi you may find you quickly recognize faces and are welcomed into this small community.

    There are 2 changing rooms and plenty of yoga supplies to support your practice. The studio itself is well lit and welcoming – with sunlight streaming through the skylights and a lovely mural of Krishna at the far end. There is a real feeling of community that pervades this studio and makes students want to return. The teachers are friendly and accessible for questions and there is a diverse array of styles informing the classes. It’s a wonderful place to get support, practice yoga, make new friends… and then head back out to the vibrant street scene on Hayes, from retail stores to La Boulange across the street, pizza next door or taking in the sun in the Hayes park.

      Amanda Moran spent 10 years in New York city where she studied and eventually taught at the Jivamukti Yoga Center. She is a graduate of the Jivamukti Teacher Training Program, class of 2000 and also received an Advanced Certification from her teachers Sharon Gannon and David Life in 2005. After trying just about every outward avenue in the quest for physical and mental peace, she finally found Yoga in 1992. At the time she suffered from chronic recurrent bronchitis worsened by her stressed out job managing tours of large theatrical productions. Through Yoga practice & a vegan diet she’s been bronchitis free for the last eight years. Her classes are Jivamukti style, consisting of challenging vinyasa sequences grounded in traditional and contemporary spiritual teachings, Sanskrit chanting, meditation, hands-on alignment adjustments, and relaxation. Classes include challenging variations for more advanced students, and accommodation for newcomers. She continues the tradition passed on to her by her teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life & Ruth Lauer Manenti, which emphasizes that Yoga practice leads to liberation. Amanda lives in San Francisco with her boisterous toddler Jackson and beautiful chef/yogi husband Jeremy.

      For Garrick, living and loving mindfully, meditation, asana, and teaching yoga are all part of his personal yoga practice.

She has been stretching, twisting, binding and playing with the physical form for years and believes “the juice is worth the squeeze“. She teaches flow classes, with a strong emphasis on precision, alignment, breath and modification, as needed.

Yoga is both my anchor and my sail. I have found that the discipline of daily practice has provided grounding to life’s challenges and triumphs. To develop a sincere and consistent practice over time brings the gifts of yoga: a strong and healthy body, the ability to focus the mind and turn inward to your true nature.”

Over the years Jason has studied various styles of yoga, including Prana Flow, Jivamukti, Anusara, Forrest, Kula Yoga (New York City), Ashtanga and Iyengar. While he teaches predominantly in the vinyasa flow style, he finds elements from each of these traditions form the foundation of his classes. Jason’s emphasis on creative, intelligent sequencing and proper alignment allows him to adapt his classes from everyone from beginners to seasoned practitioners. He always offers and encourage modifications, with the understanding that all students have strengths and areas to be developed. Jason works to enable each student to personally benefit from the practice.

    Vinyasa Alignment

      See Class Schedule
      Jo Lewzey believes the body is an intelligent vehicle, and yoga gives us the key to understanding and reclaiming our body and mind.

      In her classes you can expect a blend of anatomical alignment that reflects each student’s natural state. Each class builds on the next – movements are slow and precise.

      Jo’s passion for “working with the body,” began in ballet class when she was three years old. In her early twenties she began to dance professionally which gave her the opportunity to travel, and that’s when she discovered yoga. It was many years before she found her primary teacher Maritza who embodies the alignment-based practices of Iyengar and Anusara. Jo has since studied with Yolanda Bain, Rod Stryker, and Noah Maze.

      The Middle Way (Buddha)
      “Truth is one, paths are many.” (Gandhi)
      “Start where you are.” Pema Chodron
      These are just some of the tenets Renee subscribes to after having discovered them thru direct experience.

      There has been a disconnect from the mind and body and we are at a time in our lives where we need to reunite with ourselves and come home to our basic wholeness/perfection, which has always existed. Both Yin and Yoga Nidra are practices that offer a direct way to achieve this alignment, first with ourselves and then with the world around us. Simultaneously we discover the truth of who you are, and ultimately free ourselves of delusion, greed and hatred.

      These practices influenced Renee’s life on separate occasions and the desire to teach them became evident as she witnessed and embodied the practice in her own life. When she teaches, it’s like they are living themselves through her each time.

      If you want to slow down, pause, delve inside, purge psychic irritants, settle the muddy waters of the mind and free the body of stress and tension, then these classes are perfect for you.
