So, what happens when an Art Historian and an English Professor rent a warehouse and open a yoga studio? Home Yoga OC happens. Built out of love, of family, home, and yoga tradition, Katlyn and Scott have worked tirelessly since opening March 3rd, 2018 with a stubborn determination to build a space that welcomes all well-meaning and sincere people Home, no matter what your level of yoga practice. There’s a cliche in surfing that applies here: “the greatest surfer is the one that is having the most fun.” At Home Yoga OC, we believe that the most accomplished yogi is the one who experiences Home.
With a large studio of 1500 square feet, Home Yoga hosts intimate classes where everyone has space to move. Our non-heated classes rely on the environment to provide what it was meant to...the environment. There is nothing superficial here. There are no mirrors to distract you from your practice. You won’t have to look at yourself critically, you won’t have to compare yourself to others. You will notice that there is portrait of Genesha on the Eastern facing wall of the studio in honor of our deep yogic traditions. You will also notice that sandy-footed surfer guy is as welcoming and welcomed as LuLu Lemon wearing yoga mom. Our space is democratic and reflects our mission to provide family a home that believes in our thousands of years worth of tradition while never being dogmatic or exclusionary.
Outside of the studio itself, you will find (for the time being) a covered space to practice born out an innovative and entrepreneurial drive during those dark days of Covid. You see, that Art History Prof and that English Prof also built this space with their own two hands. Any flaws can be directly attributed to these two not knowing what they are doing and doing it anyway. The front room is being developed into a small used surfboard shop where all sorts of items are on display. House Rental boards and used boards will be available. Homemade surfboard wax is here. We even have a small bookstore and herbal products for you. Come check it out. Talk surfing, books, tea, art, incense, essential oils, sports, or spirituality. We’re down.
Home Yoga OC was founded on what many would call “niave” intentions. We wanted to provide a sincere experience of yoga that is not based on the most current and short-sighted of trends. We are not interested in the new thing. Let everyone else in Orange County chase after Chimeras, we are here to provide a sincere, joy-driven practice based on family, home, and tradition. Our space is meant to reflect the idea that it is home for everyone. There may be flaws as we become our more perfect selves, but there will always be room for you here at Home.
