The mission of Mela is to offer the knowledge, training, and manifest space to realize one's full potential as a vibrant, self-luminous being in the modern world.  Mela draws on its roots of the yoga tradition to offer programs in self-transformation, yoga, meditation and holistic health.  

Forget everything you think you know about what the practice of yoga is – or who can and cannot "do yoga" – because Mela breaks the paradigm of the traditional yoga studio.  


Tucked away from the hustle and flow – yet within striking distance of most Bay Area communities – Mela programs seek to teach you to live your yoga, not just consume it.  Spend time in conversation in our lounge, get your body moving in our class room, debate and discuss philosophy in our library, or simply sit in the quiet of our meditation cave . 


Our founding and visiting faculty members are free-range teachers, encouraged to bring the fullest expression of their authentic voice in how and what they teach.  Eager to share knowledge and the benefits of these practices in community, they seek to include all and exclude none.
