About Love Story

Come Sweat

Sometimes you just need to sweat it out to the perfect playlist. Move the body. Breathe a deep sigh. Let it all go.

Find Love

Yoga is a love story. It reminds us to fall in love with our strengths, our limitations, our past, and our potential -- breath by breath, one practice at a time.

Be Together

We go through a lot of s*** on the mat. Whatever you’re in it for, we’re in it together. Flow, sweat, and just be…together.

Mission

At Love Story, we are obsessed with sweaty and sophisticated yoga. We are a home for the urban yogi who craves a strong physical and spiritual practice, among friends, in a beautiful, warm space.

Our Classes

Just enough heat to create a detoxifying sweat. Curated playlists and chanting to support an uplifting flow. Strategic sequencing designed to increase strength and flexibility while releasing stress and fatigue.

Vinyasa Flow All Levels

Everyone's welcome - from the adventurous beginner looking for a workout to the advanced student wanting a lighter practice. The teacher will offer variations that enable you to practice at your own level while keeping up with the flow. This class is heated.

Vinyasa Flow Level 2/3

A dynamic flow for the student who loves a challenge. This sequence will build skill and awareness around some of the more advanced poses. We recommend taking at least 10 All Levels classes prior to joining a Level 2/3 class. This class is heated.

Love Story Light

For the newer student, the student re-entering after a hiatus or the seasoned student who wants a less rigorous class. This class is lightly heated and moves at a slower pace than our other Love Story classes.

Master Class

This advanced Master Class, designed to supercharge your practice, is for teachers and dedicated practitioners alike. We will come together to move, work hard, sweat and be in community. If you love a good challenge and to geek out on yoga poses, this class is for you! This class is heated.

Kundalini

Kundalini yoga is a powerful practice that combines movement, breath, and mantra. This style of yoga helps reset the nervous system, create physical stamina, and increase mental endurance. Kundalini yoga is especially useful for relieving stress and strengthening focus and creativity.

Yogi Guide

Things to keep in mind to get the most out of your practice.

Sign-up

You can pre-register online or just drop-in — we reserve a few walk-in spots for each class. Classes with Stephanie Snyder normally sell out, so we highly recommend pre-registering for these classes.

Time

Please arrive at least 10 minutes before class starts. It may take a few minutes to check-in, fill up your water bottle, put your things in a locker, and get situated with your mat and props. If you show up late, your spot may be filled by another student.

Transportation

We are an urban studio in San Francisco’s Mission District. Parking is limited to street (and mostly metered) parking. Conveniently, we’re just a 1 minute walk from a nearby paid parking garage, and a 3 minutes walk from the 16th Street BART station.

Mats

We suggest bringing your own mat to class. If you don’t have one or forgot it at home – a limited number of rental mats are available.

Towels

You’ll sweat. We suggest bringing a yoga towel and a hand towel with you to class. If you forgot yours at home, we’ll have small hand towels to rent.

Shoes

Everything is more fun barefoot. Please take your shoes off and leave them at our studio entrance. You’re also welcome to carry them with you to place in a locker.

Showers

Our men’s and women’s locker rooms have showers and are fully stocked with EO products so you can flow in and out with ease. Bath towels are available for rent at the check-in desk.

Lockers

Please store your things in a locker downstairs. Our lockers have built-in locks, so no need to bring your own.

Savasana

This is the most important pose of the class. Please do not leave early.
