"KULA…is your greatest connection to Grace. We remind each other of it. When we come together in kula and stay connected and plugged into that source, we inspire each other. When we're all doing it, we lift each other up." ~ paraphrased from Elena Brower


Welcome to Joy of Being, a green yoga and wellness studio offering yoga, Feldenkrais, massage, healing arts, music, drum circles, and transformational workshops. The studio is a shared space for practitioners, healers and instructors, located in beautiful, serene Moss Beach, just off Highway 1 between Pacifica and Half Moon Bay.

Joy of Being opened its doors in 2008 with the strong intention of building a community of practitioners who are passionate about helping people experience and actualize Joy in Being and living.

Our community includes the entire Bay Area: San Francisco, the Peninsula, Pacifica, Half Moon Bay, El Granada, Moss Beach and Montara.

We are proud of our expanding Kula and exist to support you in feeling whole, alive and JOYFUL. As we each realize our truth through connection with self and all of life, we begin to have a positive impact on our world.

Our yoga teachers are experienced and committed to proper alignment principles, wisdom, playfulness and heart. The studio space is intimate and class sizes are smaller, enabling students to receive the many benefits of a safe and nurturing environment geared towards personal growth and expansion. We strive to create a positive atmosphere where all levels of students are welcome.

"KULA is the Sanskrit word for Community -- an expression of the way relationships nest inside of relationships; the center of being; the heart of reality -- wherever it is we place our hearts, the company we choose to keep, the choice of community we make."  ~ Douglas Brooks

The Joy of Being studio is also available for rent for private and group classes, events and workshops.
