OUR STORY

2020 was a pivotal year. It brought so much of what we’d hidden away and managed to ignore to the surface. The silence created space for us to actually start to hear.

As things were changing inside of us, the world around us was changing, too. So much of our local community was desiccated. Major San Francisco yoga institutions were closed for good. For all of us, there was a void. We were missing community, and we were missing a space to be and a space to breath together.

Beyond the pandemic itself, the world was provoking us to take a step back and, not only open our eyes, but also reflect on the world we wanted to create when we reemerged. Even through my own dark depression, I saw the silver linings.

I imagined when it was safe to gather again, I would welcome students into my living room to practice in a space that was comfortable and safe, and, most importantly, be among friends. But, as time unfolded I realized this was something bigger than my San Francisco studio apartment living room. Haum was born as a way for us to transition into a new future, together.

OUR VISION

We believe everyone should experience the transformational journey of coming home to who they truly are.

OUR MISSION

Fully embrace each member of our community, and bring them together through intentional practice.

OUR BELIEFS

Home is a state of being.

Yoga is many things. Yoga can be functional. Yoga can be fun. Yoga can also be a vehicle for self-awareness. It is through awareness that we discover our essence, our superpowers and our strength. Yoga helps us come home to ourselves again and again.

Home is built on the connection to ourselves and to each other.

You know that feeling when you meet someone for the first time, yet you feel like you’ve known them for years? That’s your soul talking. We sincerely hope that Haum is a space where friendships are created and relationships are deepened. We foster an environment of inclusiveness, where everyone is welcome to be exactly who they are.

We take care of our teachers.

We didn’t open Haum with the intention of running a business or making a profit. Haum exists to support our students’ practice and the exceptional teachers who make it possible. We give our teachers space and freedom to do their thing, and we pay them what they deserve. It may seem simple, but it takes true dedication to make this happen.

We believe in and support our local community.

Haum is authentically San Francisco. We are a local, LGBTQ+ owned and operated business, and we are committed to serving the Mission. In addition to hosting charity yoga events to support the underserved, we work with the local community to identify ways to make a positive impact in the neighborhood.

We believe inner wisdom starts with education.

Our teachers are dedicated to the practice, apply it in their lives and share what they learn openly and honestly. We believe in being both the seeker and the sage. Haum offers unparalleled yoga education through trainings and workshops, so we can all ultimately connect more clearly to our inner knowing.
