When it comes to yoga, we believe in teaching what we know and revering the teachers that came before us. Our class types honor the rich history of yoga in San Francisco while nodding to the brilliance of modern movement modalities. Whether you come for Hatha, Vinyasa, Restore, or Flow + Restore, you’ll enjoy classes that feel both classic and compelling for your mind, body and spirit.
A Vinyasa class at Haum is more than just a flow class. We’ll give you the time and space you’re craving to connect back to yourself and dance with your breath. Every class is creative to keep you in the present moment, but there will always be a familiar arch that respects your body’s natural intelligence.
Alignment-junkies unite! The centerpiece of our Hatha class at Haum is an intelligent sequence of yoga asana (postures) where the goal is mindful movement combined with intentional breathing. Your instructor brings their own expertise to each class which could include meditation, breathing exercises, or mudra (hand gestures).
If you live in San Francisco and you aren’t taking Restorative Yoga, can we make a suggestion? Hurry up so we can slow you down! Our Restore class at Haum is more than a break for your brain. Through a series of relaxation postures supported by props, you’ll learn techniques that help you breathe easier, build equanimity, and sleep like a baby.
YIN + MEDITATION
One of the many benefits of yoga is balance and we’re not just talking about standing on one leg! Our Yin + Meditation class at Haum is a beautiful way to balance your dynamic movement practices. Taken in stillness, Yin yoga poses safely stress (stretch) fascial tissues in order to develop ease in your body and a fuller range of motion in your joints. Coupled with meditation, this class also serves as a nervous system reboot to encourage mental-emotional well-being. Welcome balance back into your life!
Get your sweat bands out, yogis — we’re assigning some Haum-work! Yoga Conditioning at Haum is a strength-based flow class that combines bodyweight conditioning drills, cardio, and plyometrics to intensify the muscle-building potential within familiar yoga poses. Set to an upbeat tempo, this yoga class packs a punch and will help you build confidence, kindness, and power! Are you ready to set free that fierce yoga warrior that has been quiet inside? Let’s do this! The world needs our yoga superpowers!
Yoga Nidra + Sound Healing
Yoga Nidra is the yogi’s sleep, but this class is so much more than an adult time-out! Our Yoga Nidra class at Haum aims to guide your body into a deeply relaxed state while you remain observant of your subtle body. Through gentle movements, breathwork, coordinated awareness, and sound, you will travel into layers of yourself that are not often available during the daily grind. With the potential to expand consciousness and unlock creativity, this class is a favorite for artists, seekers, and those looking for a better quality of sleep. A conscious intention will be utilized in practice to help you come home to your true nature.
We believe you are worthy exactly as you are, as you exist today in this moment. Therapeutic yoga honors that you come to your mat with an age, gender, shape, size, and body ability that is unique to you alone. In our Therapeutic vinyasa class at Haum, we create a safe space for you to arrive with everything you are. In this dynamic movement practice, you will spend time exploring your physical form and how it links up to your energetic form. This class is for any (and every) body but will be extra special for practitioners looking to explore their nervous system’s affect or build healthy habits for long term physical wellness.
There will always be a million things competing for your attention. At HAUM, we offer meditation classes designed to help you cut through the distractions so that you are able to remember and recognize that you’re already enough. Being human means that you are an expression of presence, kindness, and ease (but forgetting that is part of this whole being human thing). Our meditation classes will vary in style, but every time you sit with a HAUM Team teacher, you’ll be delivered back home to your sweet self. See you on the cushion, HAUMies!
