In 2012, Brad Hylton opened up Spirit Yoga with a clear vision. Make yoga accessible and affordable for everyone. Every class was donation based and slowly, a thriving community began to grow. Spirit has evolved a lot since the early days.

The Responsible Yoga Studio. 

After a few short years it became clear that strictly donations based yoga was not going to be enough for our teachers to survive. We feel that it is our responsibility to help teachers make a living wage. We made a commitment to pay our teachers more while still making it affordable to the community. We firmly believe that we have the best yoga teachers in Pacific Beach with the fairest price in town.


We wouldn’t be here with out the people who practice here every day. We love you so much and we thank you for continuing to support us. Our membership number has grown every year and we hope to continue into the future.


Why Do We Practice Yoga?

TO ELEVATE OUR SPIRIT! We believe that helping humanity become more conscious starts with the individual. First a person must help themselves, then their family, then their community, and continue growing outward. By elevating a person’s mind, body, and spirit, we believe that eventually the entire planet will follow suit. We are just doing our small part. Come join San Diego’s best yoga family and see where the journey takes you…

The Yoga Journey

Everyone follows a different path. Walking into a studio where everyone knows your name, cares about you, and helps you develop is our way of supporting your journey. We work hard to cultivate that sense of community at Spirit. We encourage chatting before classes, asking questions and taking pictures after class, and getting to know your neighbors. We’re all in this together!

Finding Balance

We believe the purpose of Yoga is to enhance the union between mind, breath, and body to find a greater sense of peace, health, and happiness in life off the mat. We strive to find the balance between a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual experience in each class, regardless of style, to allow our students to release tension and trauma and build strength with serenity. We believe this process will not only help our students but help the communities in which they live and interact.
