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.
In the morning when you wake up, you reflect on the day ahead and aspire to use it to keep a wide-open heart and mind. At the end of the day, before going to sleep, you think over what you have done. If you fulfilled your aspiration, even once, rejoice in that. If you went against your aspiration, rejoice that you are able to see what you did and are no longer living in ignorance. This way you will be inspired to go forward with increasing clarity, confidence, and compassion in the days that follow.
