Why We Are Here:

100th Monkey Yoga Studio promotes the development of human potential through body awareness and the effect a positive mental outlook can have to empower the whole person – body, mind and spirit. As with the story of the hundredth monkey who created a wave of innovative thinking by trying something new ( check out www.wowzone.com/monkey.htm for the whole story ). So too the 100th Monkey Studio hopes to promote a better social outlook by improving the physical and mental health of our community, one body at a time, one breath at a time. Are you the 100th Monkey? A Kodiak Monkey?

Where We Are and What We Do:

Located at 1929 Mission Rd, this space touts a heated bamboo floor, and a picturesque view of Mission Bay from the second floor of this newly remodeled home. This studio encourages small class sizes of 8 to 14 people and a wide variety of classes. We provide professionally trained instructors and exercise amenities such as two “Yoga Walls”, blocks, straps, chairs, blankets, stretch bands, fitness balls, foam rollers and weights to meet the student’s needs regardless of whether they are a new or seasoned practitioner.

Rivers are Rivers

There is a wonderful Zen saying: “Before I began Zen practice, mountains were mountains, rivers were rivers. When I had some experience, some more intimate understanding, I saw that mountains were not mountains; rivers were not rivers. Now that I have come to the very substance and am at rest, I see that mountains are mountains; rivers are rivers.” In our neurotic compulsion to think, think, think, we interfere with our true seeing. For example, when we are going to meet someone, our minds are full of all kinds of unnecessary questions: Will this person like me? Will he not like me? Will it be a good thing for me to meet her? Will she like the way I dress? Will he approve of what I say? With such preoccupations, we completely miss the reality of the person we meet. The face, the name, the interests of that person may be entirely lost because we are so full of ourselves.
