The studio is and always has been considered interdisciplinary. Our physical practice spaces are called JayaDojo.
The Sanskrit roots of name YogaJaya define personal progress through interdisciplinary learning and awareness.
Our physical practice spaces are called JayaDojo.
JayaDojo plays on a couple of eastern concepts:
jaya — (from sanskrit जय ) conquer, victory, mastery.
dōjō — (from japanese 道場) literally “place of the way”. Initially it used to refer to a place where buddhist or taoist monks conducted their rites, but later also used for martial arts, and other discipline based tradition practice spaces.
We see JayaDojo as— “a place for practice towards mastery via first understanding then overcoming personal obstacles.”
The JayaDojo studio spaces are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the KUMIKO building. High ceilings and floor to ceiling windows flood the space with natural light and allow for a minimal airy practice environment. The first floor entrance has a small lounge and library to sit and chill before or after class.
In the warmer weather, students can hang out on the stoop in the front on the building and soak up the neighborhood vibes. There is a big coin parking lot right in front of the studio and 2 others within a 5 minute walk.
Mats and props are provided free-of-charge. We don’t have lockers, but there is a designated place within the studio and in the public spaces where students can leave their belongings.

YogaJaya has an automated reception system. Students that book classes on-line don’t need to check-in, they just come to the class. If you haven’t booked in advance, you can check-in by scanning your barcode ID at the code-reader reception station. Super easy!
