Group Yoga Classes and Workshops

Join Rachel Ishiguro (she/her), yoga therapist and teacher, for a small-group class series or workshop. Rachel specializes in yoga for stress and pain reduction, improving movement patterns, and growing your awareness of what your body is telling you so you can be in the driver’s seat of your own healing.

Programs are offered ONLINE or IN-PERSON at various locations around San Diego. Many programs have “pay what you can” or sliding scale options.

What people are saying:

After a couple of years in your classes and experiencing the results, there is no doubt your “less is more” approach was tremendously beneficial for me. At first I was skeptical that deceptively simple movements would improve my issues. I figured I would do a week of gentle yoga and then move up to the next yoga “level”. Little did I know, there was no need to “move up” to get benefits. I always thought your guidance/suggestions were spot on. The instructions were flexible enough (no pun intended) to work for a studio of folks with diverse needs.
