About Us

Our Mission


Our mission is to foster an inclusive community where we build a connection with one another and within ourselves—mind, body, breath, and spirit. We honor the fundamental principle that yoga is for every body.

Our Community


Castro Valley Yoga has been offering yoga since 2002. We endeavor to reach all segments of our community, including absolute beginners, continuing and returning practitioners, seniors, kids, teens, people with limitations or health conditions, and experienced practitioners.

We believe that yoga is for everyone, and we are proud to serve a diverse population of students. Our goal is to support your goal by providing a variety of classes taught by skilled instructors who provide guidance specific to each student’s unique needs and objectives. We encourage you to try classes taught by different instructors and in different styles of yoga to grow in your practice.

Please contact us to ask questions and to find out what yoga can do for you. All are welcome!!

About Our Logo

The stylized peacock in our logo (designed by instructor/designer Barbara Lande) embodies grace, joy, beauty, and love. Contemplate the powers of the peacock when you desire more vibrancy and vitality in your actions. The eye in the feather represents divine wisdom or the third eye of Krishna, reminding us of what we can achieve when we reach within ourselves and endeavor to show our true colors. The peacock also provides guidance on one’s spiritual path and can help rejuvenate self-esteem on and off the mat.
