Welcome all students new and old...
Yoga is for everyone. There is no style of yoga that is better than another; it’s simply a matter of personal preference. All yoga styles share a common lineage. As a new student more important than any yoga style is the student-teacher relationship, a regular yoga practice, and determination.

Crystal Singing Bowls & Koshi Chimes
"Mindfulness and meditation are wonderful, but it can be really hard to quiet the mind for even a brief period of time.
The Crystal Singing Bowls & Koshi Chimes bring all the benefits of meditation while providing balance and entertainment for the brain. This is a powerful tool for stress-management, anxiety, lack of focus, and overall energy. For those who are new to meditation, this is a great way to start because the bowls will help quiet the mind and allow you to stay focused. For those who have been meditating for a while, they will find the Alchemy and enhance your practice with their healing properties."
Cost: sliding scale
Guided by Shamekia Lashay-Reserve your spot today!
Given the current climate, income loss is prevalent amongst many individuals and communities especially those deemed non- essential businesses. With the temporary closing of yoga studios there haven’t been many opportunities to share healing arts resulting in a need to supplement significant income loss for teachers and facilitators.
It’s understandable that this may have impacted you as well. Due to the Coronavirus epidemic we are offering sliding scale fees to those who are in need. Please contact us via https://www.haywardyoga.com/contact-us. We are here to help.
We look forward to the opportunity to meet as a group again. Take care and we hope to see you in class soon!
New Student Etiquette
Please be mindful and arrive at least 10 minutes before class time.
New students should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to class to fill out new student information and allow time to get comfortable and situated for removing your belongings, signing in, and setting up your mat and props.
If you are late to class, open your mats and enter silently. Please be sure to walk behind students who are in their practice not in front.
Mats rentals are $2. New students first day free.
We recommend that you not eat within 2 hours of class to avoid side aches, cramps or other discomfort consistent with eating too close to an extended workout.
Be sure to drink plenty of water before and after class. Filtered water is available for $1 in the Reception area if you'd like to refill your bottle. Bring only capped/lidded beverages.
Please, absolutely no cell phone use in the studio or reception area before, during or after class. All cell phones should be on off or silent mode. This is a courtesy for you, the teacher and the class.
Make sure to sign yourself in at the desk (even when you online sign-in you will need to be checked off.)
No shoes are allowed in the studio itself or studio cubbies. Shoes may be left in the reception area on either side of the studio.
All new students or drop-in students should pay in advance.
Refrain from wearing perfumes or lotions that have strong fragrances as some students may be allergic.
Downstairs we offer changing rooms for both men and women with showers and bathrooms. (Please do not leave your belongings in downstairs cubbys, as we cannot be responsible for your personal property.)
Our holiday schedule is posted at both entrances of the studio. Our online schedule also reflects any schedule adjustments that occasionally occur.
If you ever have questions, please feel free to contact us online or by calling (510) 888-9642.
