What People Are Saying
You can instantly feel the high vibe the moment you walk into this place. Wow. It has a very open and inviting feel the moment you step in. It was my first time attending a Mantra & Kundalini class and I’m so glad I did at the C Yoga studio with instructor Teresa. The class was beautiful and filled with gentle poses and uplifting mantras – all designed to energize and lift the spirit. Gotta say – it delivered! I left the session relaxed and happy. That said, it is also a place to let go. I found it to be a very safe place, whether a pro or an amateur. If you have ever thought about going to a Kundalini yoga class, expanding your practice, or looking for a reputable yoga studio in the area, I highly recommend this place… and I hand’s down recommend Teresa’s classes.CARLA GOMEZ

Colin Wolpert gave a 50 hour workshop vinyasa immersion in Amman Jordan. I feel honoured to have been a part of it. It was intense, beautiful and I enjoyed it immensely. Colin is a fantastic teacher and I feel lucky to have had the privilege to learn from him.” –NOUR HAJ HASAN
This studio and the instructors are great. Whatever level you are looking for they teach it. I was looking for a studio with small classes, not a body count, C Yoga is the place. Colin, the owner and instructor takes each students ability to learn very serious… a great teacher.EDWARD RUBENSTEIN
Despite visiting La Jolla for a short time, the studio instantly became a peaceful oasis in the most convenient location of San Diego. The couple of teachers/guides I experienced were amazing and held in high esteem by their regulars. Definitely one of the best studios I have been to in terms of quality teachers.RAFA RIVERA

I’m not going to lie I shed a tear in the parking lot knowing I have to fly home.AMANDA TRUPPO
C Yoga is a gem in the UC neighborhood! Great new yoga studio for all levels. I last practiced yoga years ago off and on so finding C Yoga was fitting for me as I felt somewhat of a new beginner. The vinyasa classes that I attended were led by Colin. He is enthusiastic, lighthearted and a very knowledgeable yoga teacher. Small classes,great music,instructor offers great cues allowing you to practice at your own pace, providing modifications if you need them. Very happy I found this studio.ALMA BATISTA

“Be wild; that is how to clear the river. The river does not flow in polluted, we manage that. The river does not dry up, we block it. If we want to allow it its freedom, we have to allow our ideational lives to be let loose, to stream, letting anything come, initially censoring nothing. That is creative life. It is made up of divine paradox. To create one must be willing to be stone stupid, to sit upon a throne on top of a jackass and spill rubies from one’s mouth. Then the river will flow, then we can stand in the stream of it raining down” – Pinkola Estes•TONIGHT 7:30-8:45pm join us as @teresa.cassou leads us through her one of a kind Kundalini classes!•Kundalini isn’t about learning something new, it’s about uncovering what is already inside of you. Come find your true self at @cyogastudio•#shinealivenow#cyogastudio
A more vigorous practice linking breath to movement. Classes usually incorporate music. Derived from Ashtanga – this practice builds, strength, stamina and balance. Our teachers ensure that postures are accessible to everybody and offer more advanced modifications if the student wishes to engage further. Our International Master Teacher and founder, Colin Wolpert ‘s signature classes are Vinyasa based. A fun time to be had by all.
Kundalini Yoga is a technology brought to the west by Yogi Bhajan. This technology can change the way you experience life. It has the potential to connect your mind, body and spirit with the universal consciousness. It is known to strengthen your nervous system and calm your nerves. This technology was designed to be shared with special, powerful people to remind themselves of who they are.
Iyengar Yoga is a specific form of hatha yoga with an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment. The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained by practicing asana (poses). These classes are wonderful to gain specific insight to poses and to learn the basics as well as master the not so basic.
Yin classes are relaxing and have little active movement. Instead are a series of poses held for 3-5minutes. Poses are passive, targeting the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine and sometimes shoulders. Yin yoga is said to address connective tissue and fascia.
All physical yoga is hatha yoga. In the west, we often refer to hatha classes as less vigorous physical practices. Hatha yoga consists of poses that are accessible by everybody with simple transitions and attention to being present.
Kids yoga is one of our passions. We believe that introducing kids to the technology of yoga as soon in their lives as possible is how we will change the world. Our students range from 2 month old babies to 16 year olds. Classes are age appropriate and delineated so as to derive the most benefit for the age group.
Live your NOW-LIFE, NOW !
Your life is at a crossroad. In doubt you stand still.

The realization is simple: YOUR FEET FACE FORWARD. This is the direction in which you must proceed. Go forward. There is nothing behind you.
Your future begins now. Colin Wolpert – Author, Yoga Teacher Trainer, High Tech Entrepreneur.
