About & Contact

Welcome to your local, everyday yoga retreat

Our mission is to provide a beautiful and dedicated space for daily yoga practice with gifted, intelligent and compassionate teachers. Our goal is to share a sense of community within the neighborhood and to connect with the greater, worldwide yoga community through visiting teachers, workshops and special events.

Pleasure Point Yoga is here for you.  We support growth and healing to empower individuals and build a healthy and happy community.  Cultivating a lifelong yoga practice requires a sustainable approach and methods which continue to challenge, as well as relax us on a daily basis.  Located in the heart of the Pleasure Point neighborhood we serve all of Santa Cruz County. Our dedicated and highly trained teachers are here for you 7 days a week.  Whether you are brand new to yoga or have been practicing for years, you will feel warmly welcomed as you step through our doors.

Each breath is an opportunity to grow, each breath is an opportunity to change.  A mindful practice, yoga asks us to pay attention, to become aware of what we’re doing while we’re doing it, and to take responsibility for our mind, body and spirit. It is a practice of coming home to what we already know to be true.

To support you on your path of well-being, we offer 30+ classes per week.  Vinyasa yoga is a flow-based style that coordinates breath with movement, focusing on cardiovascular conditioning and strength building.  Yin yoga is quite different; a passive style of stretching where floor postures are held for extended periods of time to access the ligaments and joints.

Our Story:  We are a Yoga studio and loving container, holding space for our community to go inward on a journey deeper to self, to the jewel of your heart, and your soul’s calling. We offer classes and workshops in all things Yoga: Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga,  Trapeze Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Meditation, Pranayama, Satsang, Kirtan, Sound Healing, and Mindfulness Practices for a pathway to peace, health, and happiness.

We offer Workshops, Destination Global Yoga Retreats, and are a Teacher Training Center for both Yoga Alliance Certified 200 hour and 300 hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training programs. 

We are also a Dance and Movement Studio and offer Dance, Dance Fitness, Movement, Self-Love, BUTI Yoga, Pilates, Rollertainment and Roller Skate Fitness, and Inversion Therapy / Trapeze Yoga classes to provide alternate pathways out of your head and back into your heart. 

Classes 7 days a week!

Locations:  TWO studio locations (Main Studio and Dance Studio) in one business complex. ALL covered under the same community and wellness focused yoga studio. We offer Livestream and Outdoor Classes DAILY at beaches and parks in Santa Cruz. 

Yoga: Yoga is a practice, way of life, and healing modality that all bodies can do. It helps to balance mind, body, and spirit and supports the integration of all parts of a person. While cultivating a compassionate and loving inner voice, it allows one to sit with self while noticing, honoring, and processing not only the times of abundance, balance, and flow but the harder, challenging, even darker times of struggle, hardship, pain and suffering.  It builds compassion for self, others, and the collective experience both on and off the mat.

Dance: Dance is an expressive modality that everyone can do! Our classes focus on having fun, feeling supported, cultivating self-love, learning to let go and express yourself outwardly, building self-esteem, and freeing self to dance like “no one is watching” or even build confidance to “dance like everyone is watching!”.   

Massage:  We have a dedicated massage studio with a highly trained, experienced, recommended and approved Certified Massage Therapist to further support your self care practices. 

Audience: All Levels, All Bodies, All Ages, All Ways are Welcome ALWAYS! We believe in People. All People. All Beings. And our Community.
