Accommodation

Established in 1992, the Santa Barbara Yoga Center is the oldest extant yoga studio in Santa Barbara, and home to some of the finest instructors in the state. Located in a beautiful, historic building, the studios have an expansive atmosphere, with twenty-foot ceilings, huge skylights and are filled with light. The apartment is available to one or two people because it has one queen sized bed. A full kitchen is yours for your use.

Santa Barbara Yoga Center Program

Apartment and yoga are available mostly weekends, but mid week stay is also possible. A minimum of two-night stay is required. The intent for this program is that one or two people could have the studio for two or more days, with a space of their own to practice and classes to join in the same building. Therefore, it is completely self-motivated and driven. You may choose for your own class and schedule. Also, although there is a full kitchen, there are many wonderful restaurants within several blocks of the center, which is right downtown.
