In 2012, Brad Hylton opened up Spirit Yoga with a clear vision. “…make quality yoga instruction accessible and affordable for everyone.” And so, a donation based studio was born. And slowly, a thriving community began to grow. Since then, Spirit has evolved a lot.

The Responsible Yoga Studio

After a few short years it became clear that strictly donations based yoga was not going to be enough support our teachers and help them thrive. Therefore, we decided that it is our responsibility to help teachers make a living wage. We made a commitment to pay our teachers more while keeping classes affordable to the community. We firmly believe that we have the best yoga teachers in Pacific Beach with a fair price that reflects our quality.


We wouldn’t be here with out the people who practice here every day. Our membership number has grown every year and we hope to continue into the future. Thank you for you love and support. We are grateful every day. If you want to become part of a great community, click here to get started.

Our Beautiful Yoga Studio

Beautiful Yoga Studio Lobby

At Spirit, we believe that the surrounding environment affects a person’s ability to practice. Therefore, we have designed on of the most beautiful yoga studio spaces around.

From the moment you enter our lobby, you will see lots of natural wood, natural light, plenty of seating and storage space, and a beautiful hand painted image representing our logo. Inspirational quotes are on the walls.

Inside our practice room, we installed a sunlight to lets lots of natural light in. Minimalist floors, plants, and an open space create a simple, natural, and relaxing environment to practice in.

Why Do We Practice Yoga?

It is our belief that yoga can dramatically improve each individual on the planet. Yoga makes you strong, calmer, and more conscious of everything around you. And if each person follows this path, it is only a matter of time before the world gets on board. First, a person must help themselves. Then they can support their family. From there they can help 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 community and see where the journey takes you…

Yoga Teachers Having Fun Together

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. Part of our mission is to cultivate that sense of community at Spirit. Come chat with us before a class, ask questions, an say hello to your neighbors. We are all in this together!

Finding Balance

The purpose of Yoga is to enhance the union between mind, breath, and body. In turn, this leads to a greater sense of peace, health, and happiness. At Spirit, there is a balance in our classes. Each class has it’s own level of physical, mental, and spiritual practices. Therefore, we can meet different students at different levels in their practice. We believe this process will not only help our students but help the communities in which they live and interact.
