Baptiste Yoga

Baptiste Yoga is a powerful, physically challenging, flowing practice. It encourages practitioners to discover their edges, explore untapped personal power, and utilize non-judgment and self-compassion while doing so.  Baptiste Yoga reinforces the importance of being present and maintaining peace of mind, even amidst challenge. Such a practice prepares its students to face philosophical and emotional challenges in all aspects of life.

What to expect

Baptiste Yoga classes are generally held in a heated room, and consist of a spirited 90-minute sequence which is designed to condition the entire body. Students can expect a challenging practice that will also help center mind, spirit, and body.


Baron Baptiste created Baptiste Yoga after studying under several Indian yoga masters as well as his parents, yoga pioneers Walt and Magana Baptiste, who opened the first yoga center in San Francisco in 1955.
