Our studio was born here and will be raised here. We’ve been practicing and teaching in this community for many years and will be doing it for many years to come. This area is our home, and it’s precious to us. Groove Yoga was manifested from within the Bay Area yoga community, and we want to make an impact well beyond the walls of our studio.
We will encourage and nurture new teachers through a weekly donation-based class where they can practice teaching. We will also host karma yoga events where students and friends are invited to join us in bringing our yoga to action off the mat as we volunteer with local organizations to better our environment.
We love to support local businesses and organizations. Visit some of our favorites below. We will also periodically post local events and happenings to this page – check back often!

Dharma and Therapy in Service of the Heart’s Release: A yogi’s way is to practice awakening to presence, to learn to rest in the reality of the present moment, to know freedom as his or her own true nature, to dwell in the one who knows, to embody the sure heart’s release.
Jonathan Reynolds is currently attending JFK University’s Transpersonal Counseling Psychology Program, and hopes to further integrate the practices of meditation, therapy, embodiment, and conscious relationship into his own life and work. At each step of his unfolding, his intention has been to skillfully refine the thread of his own path — his interest in the relationship between seer, seeing, seen, and simplicity. Drawing on many wisdom traditions, Jonathan’s teaching and counseling sessions are centrally rooted in Buddhist Vipassana Meditation, the Classical Yoga of Patanjali, and the Nondual Advaita Vedanta teachings of Shankara. He is a founding teacher of the Learning To Listen Yoga & Meditation Collective, a San Francisco-based Nonprofit Teaching Community committed to offering tools that promote conscious living.

We are around the corner from Gather, the East Bay Express 2010 Reader’s Choice for Best New Restaurant. Gather’s owners started down the path to opening the restaurant as yoga instructors running outdoor trips, when they got a reputation for the food they made as mountaineering guides. For both omnivores and vegetarians, Gather is a delicious place to have a mindful meal. Open 7 days a week for lunch, brunch and dinner.
