Set in an historic train station building that is over a century old, Leela Yoga offers a wide variety of class styles for a wide variety of experience levels. Leela Yoga's mission includes instructors who are knowledgeable and friendly, with a variety of expertise, who truly live their practice. At Leela Yoga we welcome all humans with a conscientious eye toward inclusivity and body positivity. Our mission as a community is to take our in-studio practice and spread the benefits throughout Alameda and the greater East Bay. We regularly partner with Alameda non-profits and schools. We have been named best yoga studio in Alameda for two years running, have been featured as studio of the month by Athleta, and were partners in helping Seva develop their international Yoga for Sight Day. While we have a large presence and excellent reputation in the yoga community, you will still find that we are a low key, welcoming space, no $100 yoga pants required.
Included in our stellar staff is renowned bodyworker Raul Castro. By renowned we mean voted best of Alameda numerous times, and has to-date, 67 five star reveiws on yelp. He is a skilled healer and teacher of healers. Not your typical "spa massage" Raul's practice of bodywork is well suited for those experiening chronic pain, injury recovery, and who are on the path of self care and emotional healing. For more information please visit his website at www.RaulCastroBodywork.com. You can book directly with him here.
We understand that part of inclusivity is reasonably priced classes and we have made that a part of our mission. Toward the end of keeping classes accessible, we also offer work-trade program at Leela Yoga. This could be on a regular basis or for one-off special events. If you have an interest in work-trade, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with Leela Work Trade in the subject line.
