Best Yoga studio/experience by far !

I've nothing but wonderful things to say about Gizella and Yoga Mayu. She's a super thoughtful, experienced and talented teacher, and her sense of humor and patience have been super helpful to me in trying to improve my practice. The studio space is great; clean, warm and inviting. I've also taken classes with most of the other teachers and nearly all those sessions have been great. It's unfortunately been a little while since I've last taken classes there, but I can't wait to return. By far my best experience practicing yoga in the Bay Area.

Great instructors!

I have been coming here for over a year now and love the quality of the instructors. Most of the classes are not super crowded like many of the other studios in the area.

Best yoga studio in the city

I have been going to this studio on a regular basis for over a year now and it is my favorite studio in SF by far. Yoga Mayu is clean, conscious, has great energy and is run very, very well. Plenty of clean & well-kept props, the teachers are fantastic, very knowledgable, down to earth and real.
I encounter no snobby 'more-yoga-than-thou' attitudes either in the staff nor class attendees, which, I think, greatly helps yield a delightful and refreshing class experience. Its not hot yoga and its not gimmicky, thank goodness - Yoga Mayu has real yoga you can do at your own pace without pretension. Highly recommended.

The wonderful teachers at Yoga Mayu have transformed both my practice and my life. From my first class, I received incredibly helpful adjustments and honest feedback, and since then have progressed further and become stronger, more flexible, and healthier than I could have ever imagined. The space is clean and beautiful, the experience is balanced and intimate, and the vibe is accepting and so real. There is a class to suit any style, and a teacher to support you no matter what your journey might be. I am eternally grateful for finding this place!

My one and only

Once I became a regular student at Yoga Mayu, I stopped going to other studios. This is not only because Yoga Mayu is a 15 minute walk from my home, but also because it offers a full schedule of top-notch classes and teachers. Despite the wide variety of teachers, the classes are all very consistent. I know I will always get a good workout balanced with lots of stretching, resting poses, back bends and inversions.


The studio itself is clean and spacious, with ample storage, changing rooms, restroom, and a hardwood floor that is a pleasure to practice on. Classes are never overly crowded, and the teachers are all welcoming and personable. The passes are a great value; I get the monthly unlimited and go to class 5 days per week. In other words, I'm completely spoiled by Yoga Mayu.

Love this place

I think it takes new people awhile to truly understand what a relaxed place this is. I am not an expert level guy, I'm a newbie. I can't imagine a better place to start the practice of yoga, or better people to learn from as my experience increases.

At the high level all the teachers are at, I've felt we were are all students, just some are farther along the path.

Best teachers in San Francisco!

I've been practicing regularly for nearly 20 years, and for the past 5 years, exclusively at Yoga Mayu. They have the highest quality, highly skilled and best trained teachers of any studio in SF. Their classes are innovative with a strong emphasis on traditional pose alignment. I love their space too. It's a gem of a studio!

Feels like home!

I started practicing yoga in 2008. I had no experience with yoga so I started out attending the beginning yoga classes on Saturday afternoon (Great deal, 4 classes for $40.00). After I gained confidence I started attending regulars classes and by 2012, I completed the yoga teacher training here. Gizella hires only the most skilled and professional instructors in the city. With the vast selection of classes, it is easy to find what I need in a class everyday and there is always street parking. This place feels like home. Oh, and check out the yoga boot camps, Monday through Friday, awesome way to start the day!! Hope to see you soon.

I Love Yoga Mayu

I love supporting small businesses where the owner is present--a visual part of their business. I love yoga mayu because every class I've taken over the past however many years is taught by an experienced and knowledgeable teacher. Each teacher (including the owner) clearly loves their own practice as well as inspiring others to love their practices. They rule. ;)

Wonderful space and community

I have been coming to Yoga Mayu for about 3 years now. It has never let me down. All the teachers are passionate about what they do and highly skilled. Gizella runs such a great ship here that will take you wherever you need to go in your practice! I am not sure where I would go if this place didn't exist.

Who has not felt better after yoga?

I'm very impressed by this yoga studio. It's clean, spacious and peaceful. It's easy and convenient for me to practice here anytime of the day--early morning, during lunch break or in the evening. I feel calm and refreshed every time I finish a session here!

All instructors are great. They have their own unique focus based on their personalities. You'll easily find a teacher that suits you.
