Our Yoga Program

Yoga for the Modern Body

The benefits of a regular yoga practice are numerous for both the body and the mind. At Maiden Lane Studios, we believe in high quality instruction and practicing yoga with mindfulness, intelligence, and functionality. Yoga at Maiden Lane Studios supports the modern body through a thoughtful practice that counteracts the stresses our bodies undergo in our daily lives. Yoga works to open up the body while increasing flexibility, strength, and balance, while also calming and centering the mind.

Why Maiden Lane Studios

With an acute understanding of the body and intelligent movement, we teach yoga with an emphasis on correct alignment and safety, while providing space for playfulness and progression. We have created a yoga community at Maiden Lane Studios that is based on support and growth, and that is non-competitive and non-judgmental. Our small sized classes and private instruction offerings allow us to work on a personal and much more effective basis than yoga found at big box gyms and even many boutique studios.

Ramona

Certified Yoga Instructor, Pilates Instructor, Barre Instructor

Ramona found yoga as a way to balance her hectic life as a young attorney. First introduced to yoga in the 90’s, she began a daily practice in 2008 to support her busy and active lifestyle. Ramona’s love for the practice grew as she learned that the study of yoga, and with it the discovery of the mind and body, could last more than a lifetime. This led her to deepen her study of yoga through a comprehensive teacher training with Maile Sivert and Caroline Kelley at The Mindful Body in San Francisco. It was also at this time that Ramona began Mysore-style Ashtanga and meditation practices that continue to bring awareness and philosophical insight to her study.

Benefits of Yoga

We believe that yoga is for everybody and can benefit everybody. In addition to the physical benefits of yoga, from increased flexibility and balance, and a strong, toned body, yoga makes you happier, increases focus and mindfulness, and boosts confidence. It improves posture while promoting joint, bone, and spine health—meaning less injuries , aches, and pains. Yoga also increases circulation and can help drop blood pressure, and in some of our more vigorous practices, can also serve as cardiovascular exercise, burn calories, and help you lose weight.
Additionally, practicing yoga helps support the immune and lymphatic system, while regulating your adrenal glands and cortisol levels. Yoga releases body tension and relieves stress, giving the body the ability to relax and restore, helping you sleep better, and enjoy an overall higher quality of life.

A Few Things to Consider:

  • Efficient and intelligent movement: Yoga incorporates series of functional movements that include full body, multi-joint body movements on different planes. It trains the body more intelligently and to move more efficiently in your daily life.
  • Builds strength: Create a strong and sculpted body. Increase strength throughout the entire body, including but not limited to the arms, back, tummy, hips, legs, and glutes. Because yoga simultaneously builds flexibility as well, yoga creates a more balanced and optimally aligned body than traditional strength training alone.
  • Increases flexibility: Yoga helps to gradually loosen tightness in muscles (which are often developed from poor habits, habitual movement patterns, and other body imbalances) which will alleviate aches and pains while helping prevent injury. Being flexible allows you to move more freely and with ease in your everyday life.
  • Increases balance: A regular yoga practice increases inner body awareness and improves balance.
  • Improves posture: Poor posture can lead to back, neck, and other muscle and joint problems. Yoga helps keep you properly aligned, allowing you to stand and sit taller.
  • Promotes joint, bone, and spine health: Yoga involves a wide range of movements, which helps keep joint cartilage healthy and protect it against arthritis. The wide range of movements involving the spine keep the disks in your back supple. The weight bearing nature of yoga helps ward off osteoporosis.
  • Supports the immune and lymphatic system: Contracting, stretching, and twisting the body in yoga helps increase the drainage of lymph, a fluid in immune cells. This assists the lymphatic system in fighting infection, destroying cancerous cells, and detoxing the body.
  • Increases circulation & improves heart health: Movements in yoga increase circulation and help oxygenate your cells and tissues. In more vigorous Vinyasa classes, getting your heart into the aerobic range improves heart health.
  • Drops blood pressure: Studies have shown that people with hypertension have lowered blood pressure after just three months of regular yoga practice.
  • Regulates your cortisol levels: Yoga lowers cortisol levels produced by your adrenal glands. Excessive cortisol levels can compromise the immune system and have also been linked to depression, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and insulin resistance.
  • Helps you be happier & boosts confidence: Studies have found that a regular yoga practice can improve depression and increase serotonin levels. Yoga also works to both physically train the body, helping you look good and feel good about yourself, while realigning the mind to become more grateful and content.
  • Increases focus: Yoga teaches you to focus on the present. Studies have found that regular yoga practice improves coordination, reaction time, memory, and even IQ scores.
  • Alleviates stress: Stress is tied to a huge array of physical health problems. Yoga and meditation helps you learn the tools to quiet and refocus the mind, preventing the frustrations, anxieties, angers, and fears we often impose on ourselves.
  • Improves sleep: Studies have found that better sleep is another by-product of a regular yoga practice. Sleep is one of the most important components of our daily routine. Good sleep has been linked with better overall health, a smaller waistline, a better immune system, less stress, and of course, more energy and ability to focus throughout the day.

Yoga Studio Gallery

Yoga with Lauren has fundamentally and drastically changed my perception of yoga. Starting off completely new to yoga, I became increasingly interested in and drawn into yoga through a private class and subsequent group classes with Lauren.

Tricia| San Francisco

I’ve done candlelit yoga with Stephanie and it was the great way to end a day….not to mention the classes are small enough where you almost get private instruction from her so I walked out with better form and definitely feeling the workout.

Michelle | San Francisco

I LOVE THIS PLACE! I am not a fan of regular “gyms” and prefer more boutique style and this is it! I’m returning to exercising after an injury/surgery and they have taken great care of me. Making sure to adjust accordingly in each of the classes.
