Boutique Yoga Studio + School
White Peacock Yoga invites you to explore the art of yoga through empowered studentship, continuing education, and loving community. We’re honored to be a part of your personal journey to wholeness and freedom. Welcome!
While our studio makes its home in Encinitas, CA, we recognize and embrace our connection to the global yoga community. White Peacock Yoga came to life in August 2013, and we moved into our El Camino Real studio in January 2014. We’re proud members of the neighborhood’s independently owned, socially conscious businesses. We love Encinitas!
At White Peacock Yoga, you will receive personable attention and guidance to truly nourish your self-growth. Here, we do not practice out-of-the-box yoga. McYoga is not the White Peacock way.
At White Peacock Yoga, we’re on a mission to inspire and increase wisdom in the world. When we apply our own wisdom to everyday life, we experience deeper connections with our families and communities. One by one, our local families and communities form a network of love and unity. That’s why the inspired practice of yoga matters. And it’s that quality of practice that we aim to bring to you. We are all about Living RAW: Real. Authentic. Wisdom.™
Life is quite the journey, isn’t it? Observe your internal environment with patience, humor, and courage—life’s ups and downs show us our unique path to everyday wisdom and compassion.
Our studio staff and teachers consistently encourage you to cultivate your yoga, to treasure your wisdom. We wish you much peace and happiness as you continuously discover what keeps your light shining brightest. OM.

Our Friendly Support Staff
Kate Barnes, Studio Manager
Kate is our mover and shaker—she greets guests, manages schedules and answers your questions about trainings, classes and teachers. She is inspired by community and has a voice that will knock your socks off—she’s a classically trained singer. Oh, and Kate teaches too!
Ann Hunter, Studio Magic Maker
We call Ann our "Studio Fairy" as she magically makes everything shine + feel at home. We think of her as our mother hen (she's our founder’s mom). She has her 200-hour credentials, and she teaches gentle yoga here. Inspired by the San Diego landscape, Ann expresses her art through photography. Stay tuned for info on her art cards.
