Union Yoga is a collection of the California Central Coast's most experienced yoga teachers coming together over a love of sweet, deep, sometimes sweaty yoga. We celebrate yoga philosophy and a rich understanding of how a consistent, regular practice can enhance not only our lives, but the world we live in. We laugh, learn, remain curious, and teach according to the latest trends and research in asana, brain health, fitness, kinesiology, and technology.

Union Yoga is the only yoga studio in Monterey to offer a far infrared heat with a maximum of 85 degrees in our classes. Most people liken the experience of infrared heat to being out in the sun on a sunny day. This means your experience is a continuous warmth that does not rely on forced hot air and humidity blowing into the room. Many people who dislike the experience of traditional hot yoga classes love the warmth and fresh air that far infrared provides.
