Yin & Restore
with Joyce San Pedro
An all-levels, slow-paced class focused on deep stretches and longer holds — a perfect complement to the active, fast-paced lives many of us lead and to the more muscular practices of yoga. Yin & Restore encourages you to relax and restore the body, mind, and spirit through active relaxation and practiced stillness. With the support of props and fewer-but-longer holds, beginners and longtime practitioners alike can release built-up tension by accessing the deep connective tissue, calming the nervous system with patience and presence.

“How you do anything is how you do everything.“
Yoga has helped Joyce approach anything and everything with a calmer spirit, a more open heart, and a quieter mind. She began practicing in 2007 while on vacation. The seed was planted, and upon her return to Los Angeles she studied with Bryan Kest, Jerome Mercier, Jay Co, and Vytas Baskauskas. Raised with the travel bug and often traveling for work, she’s had the fortune of studying with various teachers and multiple styles throughout the US as well as Brazil, Bali, England, Italy, Canada, and New Zealand. She returned to her roots in NY and completed her RYT 200-hour training at Hudson River Yoga. While currently focusing on Ashtanga yoga, Joyce also teaches Vinyasa flow, Yin / Restorative, and Yoga for Seniors. She believes that when it comes to yoga, we are our own best teachers and works to guide her students on an internal journey by way of breath, asana, and mindfulness.
