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.

“It is teachers and practitioners like Jason that will take the art of yoga and teaching yoga to its next step.” — Rodney Yee
Kyle’s classes are an opportunity for students to move the body, breath and energy, to explore a deeper awareness of their own experience, and to build a little fire while maintaining safe alignment.
Yoga has been fundamental to her personal growth, underpinning a period of tremendous change in her life. Her mat and the practice have been a safe place to process and release grief and pain, to discover and honor her own boundaries, to recover joyful movement, and to further explore her relation to spirit. She is living the benefits of yoga-aided freedom and has experienced first-hand yoga as a catalyst and a handmaiden for growth and life change. Kyle received her 200 hour teaching certificate from Yoga Tree and is graduating from the 500 hour program at the end of 2013. She is inspired by her mentor, Chrisandra Fox Walker and Jason Crandell.
Sean’s classes are noted for their humor, depth, and precision. Focusing on alignment, students wishing to learn about their bodies and the different concepts of yoga philosophy in detail will enjoy his public classes, workshops, immersions, and trainings.
Sean has taught yoga to a variety of people including high schoolers, homeless groups, recovering drug addicts, and queer youth. He deeply enjoys using his teaching for good causes and has taught at various benefits and fundraisers.
Sean’s teachers have deeply influenced not only his yoga instructing but also his life. He offers deep gratitude with each class to his main teachers, Katchie Ananda, Jack Kornfield, Christine Price Clark, Brent Kuecker, Desiree Rumbaugh, Paige Faraci and most recently inspired by Iyengar teacher Cynthia Bates and local senior teacher Betty Roi.
