The 4 Pillars Of Spirit Yoga


We believe in family first, community second. Spirit Yoga Studios is a place for people to connect with one and other. We pride ourselves on being a standout within the Pacific Beach community.


We believe in high quality instruction, reasonable prices and incredible customer service. Each day, we strive to create a more welcoming space for our students to practice and express themselves.


We believe yoga teachers should be supported and deserve a living wage. At Spirit, we always search for ways to increase pay for our staff, while providing an environment for personal development.

Giving Back

We believe that the highest function of any being is service to others. Every year, Spirit Yoga San Diego is proud to pledge 1% of our annual revenue to four different charities making a powerful difference.

The Evolution Of Spirit Yoga

How We Started

In 2013, Brad Hylton founded Spirit Yoga on the idea that Yoga classes can be high quality, accessible, and affordable for everyone. After starting as a donation based studio, Spirit evolved when it decided that teachers needed to be paid better.

Why Do We Practice ?

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.

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.

Spirit is a culmination in all of us.
It is not a space, owners, teachers, or even students.
It lives throughout each one of us.
It is the formless within our physical form,
the breathe that fills us all.
Spirit is divine consciousness.
Spirit is energy.
Spirit is home.
We embody Spirit,
and together we soar.
