HeartYoga has a unique take on vinyasa which allows students to find flow within ever-changing “take it, leave it, or modify it” sequences structured by our passionate teachers.
After 6 years of doing business in cold and snowy Minneapolis, we’ve moved to beautiful Mission Beach, San Diego. There is no better place to practice yoga than a minute from the ocean!
If you are ready to try something new and awaken the teacher within, HeartYoga will be a wonderful place for you. Come join us!
We can’t wait to share this with you! Take your practice and teaching to the next level with our San Diego retreat and Zoom combination 300-hour YTT.
HeartYoga’s 300 Hour Teacher Training is an in-depth mentorship with Jason Hulshof and the HeartYoga community. It is based on the art of giving and receiving feedback–the key to becoming a masterful teacher.
We will progress through three training modules designed to make your yoga classes more impactful and transformative. Hot Vinyasa, Deep Vinyasa and Yin. In each you will gain a deeper understanding of both the yoga tradition and yourself in ways that are always practical. What you learn will be continuously applied in your teaching, life and all your relationships.
We are particularly excited about the format of this training! It will begin with a 8-day retreat just a few steps from the ocean in the Mission Beach area of San Diego 8/11/23-8/20/23. There’s no better place to study the flow of vinyasa yoga just steps from the ocean!
We’ll follow the San Diego retreat with twice weekly meetings on Zoom. If you are looking for healing and renewal this will be a perfect opportunity for you as you develop your teaching skills.

Breathwork Training and Retreat for Yoga Teachers
Breathwork, or what the yoga tradition calls pranayama, builds on your posture practice and is a profound way to help your students to the next level in their yoga journey. It truly is a key to unlock hidden healing potential in all of us, even the most experienced yoga practitioner.
This retreat is designed for you to feel the power of breathwork for yourself and gain skills to share it with your students. Also because we are here in San Diego just steps from the ocean there is so much support for you from nature. It truly will be out of this world.
Jason Hulshof our Head Teacher will be your leader. He has close to 25 years teaching experience leading yoga and pranayama experiences and has had a part in training thousands or yoga teachers. His guidance is filled with both the intensity required to move you beyond ordinary limits and the the compassion and empathy to support you along the way.

Follow the Yogi
Set in a quiet, hot room, Follow the Yogi is a series of powerful, ancient postures based on the Ashtanga yoga system that support strength and vibrancy within. This is a chance to practice along with your teacher and create a communal yoga spirit. Keep in mind instruction is minimal and this class is not appropriate for first-time yoga students.
Hot Vinyasa is a vigorous moving meditation where you connect deeply with the most intelligent teacher in any yoga class–Your own body!
We use music, dynamic sequences and flow to help you get out of your head and into a creative rhythm of breath and movement. Class is heated (85-90) so you will sweat and you will leave feeling powerful, peaceful and free.
Deep Vinyasa is a slower sequence that encourages moving inward. Through feeling postures with the eyes closed, we explore the healing connection between mind and body. This is a warm/hot class.
Yin Yoga is a meditative class where postures are held for 5-10 minutes in a warm room. This creates a profound release of the body’s connective tissue—like deep calming bodywork. It’s a wonderful practice for those seeking peace and inner quiet.
Yoga & Metta
Yoga & Metta is a class where we use a flow of yoga postures and breath-work to open the energetic channels of our mind/body. Then practice the ancient healing art of Metta–The meditation of universal lovingkindness. For anyone looking to open their heart this is a wonderful practice.
For those who wish to learn to meditate or deepen their current practice. The teacher begins the hour with some simple instructions and may offer more guidance throughout the hour depending on the students’ level of experience. Students should bring their own meditation cushion as props are very limited. This is free class open to the community.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Short-Form
The Short-Form is an adaptation of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in a hot room. In this class you have time to breath into postures – we often hold them for 5 breaths. This develops an intuitive understanding of how your body can embrace these ancient shapes. This is a great class for first-time students.
Jason has been teaching yoga since 1998 and has seen it help thousands of people change their lives for the better. Originally self-taught, he found his teacher, Jonny Kest, in the year 2000. After 16 years of working closely with him and helping to train hundreds of yoga teachers across the country, Jason founded HeartYoga in 2016. His goal was to create a yoga community where people could pour their hearts into their practice and feel the healing and renewal that comes from that effort. If you want to feel enlightened and empowered, you will find something in his teaching that nourishes your spirit.
Kristin is originally from Minnesota, but has called San Diego home since 2020. As a former gymnast, Kristin dabbled in yoga spaces throughout her life, but discovered the depth of the practice–that yoga is beyond asana–at HeartYoga in Minneapolis in 2018. Curious by nature and a forever student to the world around her, Kristin completed her 500-hour training in 2021 and the opportunity to teach presented itself shortly after. Her passion for the practice comes from her love of building community and interest in mental health/healing modalities. She’s honored to be able to share it: whether it is a powerful hot vinyasa class, a slow and meditative yin class, or a style in-between.
To Lejla, yoga is personal. It is a grounding and liberating practice that gives the practitioner an insight to their truest self.
She believes that we all have gifts that can change the world that can be unlocked through yoga.
Being a busy college student and an active creative person on a mission; yoga is how she ties everything together and stays grounded. She is continuously moved and transformed by the benefits her own personal practice and wants to share the same gift with the world.
