Owners Aaron Goodnow and William Cristobal started the practice in 2010 with studios in Mountain View and San Jose in 2013. In the local community, they became known for a host of wild parties, but soon after, they became known for creating their own studio for non-traditional yogis who simply love exercise. The unique approach offers a safe, enjoyable and positive environment to meditate and workout. Yogis can expect "wicked sequencing, funky playlists and a disco ball."
