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 arc 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) with the goal of mindful movement combined with intentional breathing. Your instructor brings their unique expertise to each class, which may include meditation, breathing exercises, or mudra (hand gestures).
If you live in San Francisco and aren’t taking Restorative yoga, can we make a suggestion? Hurry up so we can slow you down! Our Restore class is more than a break for your brain. Through a series of relaxing 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 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 and emotional wellbeing. Welcome balance back into your life!
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 can remember and recognize that you are already enough. Being human means that you are a manifestation of presence, kindness, and ease (but forgetting that is also part of this whole being human thing!). Our meditation classes will vary in style, but every time you sit with a HAUM teacher, you’ll be delivered back home to your sweet self. See you on the cushion, HAUMies!
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 guides you into a deeply relaxed physical state while enhancing awareness of your body. Through gentle movements, breathwork, coordinated awareness, and sound, you will travel through layers of the self 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, spiritual seekers, and those looking for improved sleep quality. The conscious intention attained through practice will help you come home to your true nature.
You are worthy exactly as you are, as you exist in this very moment. Therapeutic yoga honors the radiant uniqueness of your age, gender, shape, size, and physical ability. In this practice of dynamic movement, you will explore the various connections between your physical and energetic form. This class is for anybody and everybody, but is particularly beneficial for practitioners seeking to explore their nervous system’s effect on building healthy habits for long-term physical wellness.
FLOW + RESTORE
If you’re not sure where to begin, why not get the best of both worlds? The Flow + Restore class is the perfect introduction for students curious about Flow or Restore yoga. This class is also ideal for anybody that needs a rejuvenating boost of energy. The Flow portion of class chases away fatigue, while the Restore portion peels back the layers so you can find the vibe you’ve been looking for.
We know it’s a busy world out there, and it can be tempting to skip out on slowing down. Slow Flow class creates a grounding space where you’ll hold and breathe through challenging poses in a powerful yet calming practice. This sweet, sweaty class provides you with the time and instruction needed to explore the many ways yoga props can provide support in various poses. This yogic blend of effort and ease is open to all yoga practitioners, including maturing yogis and those working with injuries.
