Given that we have been unable to hold in-person classes since March 15, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, and the fact that this is not likely to change anytime soon, we made the difficult decision to close Hatha Yoga Shala East Bay.

We opened the Shala in May of 2011, and are grateful to have had such a beautiful and focused container for our Shadow Yoga and Nrtta Sadhana program and community. We have also had the honor of hosting Shandor and Emma for a number of different events, sharing these remarkable teachers with all of you.  While the closing brings some sadness, it is important to remember that change is inherent in this realm of impermanence.  At some point, we will be able to meet again in-person for workshops, retreats, courses, and to host Shandor and Emma.  When conditions allow, we will look for a suitable location in the San Francisco Bay Area, and will keep you posted.  Until then, Mark will continue to offer online courses for experienced students as well as his Practitioner Training program, with the Level II training which is currently in session.

May 2021 bring healing and positive change to our world, our communities, and each of us individually.  The challenges we face are not insurmountable, and we trust that kindness and wisdom will prevail.  


Much love,

Mark & Judy
