Welcome to Monterey Yoga!

Yoga is for everyone and the benefits of the “yoga lifestyle” can quickly be realized. Whether you are seeking greater levels of fitness, learning to calm the mind or simply seeking a community of like minded practitioners, our studio has all of that and more. Our traditional yoga programs are progressive and adaptable to all levels.

Our instructors are knowledgeable, experienced, and kind. The shala fosters a supportive environment for the practice of yoga and personal growth.



  • It's not easy to find a traditional Ashtanga program and this studio is legit. My practice takes a leap forward and I feel welcome every time I visit this warm studio. Adarsh has helped me to personalize my practice and adapt to my limitations and has given me tons of practical tips to implement in my home practice. So happy I found the Monterey Yoga Shala!

  • If you're looking for the real deal in yoga then Monterey Yoga is the place. Heleen and Adarsh help all levels whether you've dropped in for the first time or are a dedicated Ashtanga yogini. Great studio space in Monterery. Been doing yoga steadily for 17 years and I feel I'm finally learning to do it right. I highly recommend Monterey Yoga.

  • What I always take with me from Adarsh's class is the feeling of 'Yes I can do this'. The feeling I carry on knowing that every hardship can be tackled one yoga pose at the time. That is why I always come back to renew and re-energize myself.

  • The Monterey Yoga Shala was one of my greatest discoveries after moving to Monterey! The instructors are welcoming, inclusive, and very dedicated to helping yogis get the most out of their practice!

  • My experience at the Monterey Yoga Shala was wonderful, eventful, and a memorable one. I've been practicing yoga for three years and taken several teacher training programs as well as workshops and conferences. The Ashtanga yoga teacher training program at the Shala is exceptional. The knowledge shared with the students was extensive. One of the best parts of the training is the facility. If you love yoga and find yourself on the Monterey Peninsula, stop by the Shala for a class. The kindness of Adarsh, Heleen, the instructors as well as the clientele are unparalleled.
