“Peter’s class tonight was incredible for me. I literally felt like I was dancing! The space he creates for students is so special. It is honestly impossible to put into words, it just has to be experienced!... I just want to be a testament to you that Peter really has a gift to share with the world. He shows up so authentically and filled with love... it’s contagious. I’m so happy he touches so many people with his practice every day because gosh knows we need more of that!” -Alex B.
The energy Peter brings to class is healing and eye opening, transmitting itself naturally to everyone present. I find his classes physically and mentally challenging, with focus on the breath and why we are moving through asana as well as on the physical postures. His classes are spiritually grounding, thought provoking, and manage to balance the contemporary desires of yoga students with strong roots in Vedic and Bhakti yoga traditions. I always leave his presence feeling more positive, light-hearted, and ready to face life’s challenges with a more level head. In fact, even on my own, I often hear him reminding me to “begin again.” I was lucky enough to have attended one of his week-long retreats in Hawaii, and it became a pivotal moment for me in how I approached both my practice and my everyday life. He was a welcoming host with a well-planned itinerary of mediation, talks, yoga, group meals, and time to explore the island on our own. If you ever have a chance to attend his classes or retreats, I strongly recommend you do. - Martina R.
Peter is a delightful, humble, and candid human, teacher, and student! He takes yoga and his teaching seriously, but he doesn't take himself too seriously. This approach makes his classes inviting while still challenging. His sequences are difficult, always different, and playful. When class ends, I want it to start all over again! The playlists are reminiscent of every sing-along you have had or may want to have, and Peter will be happy to sing with you! He offers great readings at the end of practice, too. He cares about his students and you can feel it from the moment class starts until it ends. - Nicole A.
"As a practitioner of more than 20 years in San Francisco I was delighted to find Peter. He embodies the definition of yoga in spirit and practice. His Bhakti classes are one of mind body and spirit. Each time, something new to discover and begin again. Well curated music transports students to a magical place and his hands on approach encourages students beyond what they may not know they can do. " - Julie P.
Peter is so filled with love and authenticity that it's contagious the moment you enter his class. His classes are a perfect mix of playfulness and reflection. Whenever I practice with him I always get in a good therapeutic laugh, cry or if I'm lucky...both! As a fellow yoga teacher who has taken A LOT of yoga classes, Peter is one of my tried and true favorites! - Alex B.
I started practicing with Peter in September 2017 and have been hooked on his classes ever since. He provides the perfect environment, from his singing and live harmonium to ever evolving flows, I leave each time feeling fulfilled. If you are looking for a class that will leave you feeling great not just physically, but emotionally as well, Peter is your teacher. - Eric H.
I've been practicing with Peter for quite a while now and it just keeps getting better. Peter's flows are challenging, innovative, and silly, and they're the perfect combination of power, vinyasa, and Bhakti. I’ve never met another yoga teacher who makes me laugh quite as hard as Peter can during chair pose and forearm plank. I introduced my boyfriend to Peter and his classes quickly became one of the things we look forward to the most every week. If you’re thinking about going to Peter’s class…go. Just do it! - Alexa M.
"I never leave Peter's class the way I arrive, no matter the situation I arrive in, it's transformative. His ability to sync in... to the energy in the room, the union created through chanting, the gifts yoga has to offer, gratitude and humility... Each class is altering... every time. With a focus on breath, gratitude, presence, alignment, muscle strengthening and a connection of mind, body and soul, each class is a journey, which if you choose to tune into, will bring you exactly where you would benefit from arising from. Because of routinely attending his classes, I'm stronger, balanced, calmer and have found the delight in chanting... It's simple... go and go often. And, thank you Peter." - Guryan
From rooftop decks on a sunny day in the SOMA to poolside at the Phoenix Hotel and many other yoga studios in between, there isn’t a space or a yoga attendee who doesn’t benefit from Peter’s expertise and guidance. His classes are energetic. His technique is enlightening. His dedication to his teaching and his students is unparalleled. - David G.
Peter was born to be a yoga instructor. His calming voice, perfectly timed comedic additions, and graceful presence not only make you want to do yoga all day, but also be the best yogi you can be. He’s encouraging and thoughtful and his students are lucky he pursued this path! - Brit W.

Peters class was the first class I took when I first moved to SF and 2.5 years later I have attended countless classes, workshops and his FABULOUS retreat in Hawaii. Peter is an incredible teacher that makes everyone feel welcome with his infectious personality. His classes are sweaty, smile-y, and oh so silly. But more than anything they are honest, with his love for the practice shining so bright. What are you waiting for?!?! Go practice with him!!! ❤️ - Caity C.
I've been doing yoga off and on for 6 years or more. I started off practicing yoga in LA with some now well-known teachers like Shiva Rea, Seanne Corn, and Max Strom. All of them are great teachers but when I moved back up to SF, I was LUCKY to find Peter as my go-to SF teacher. Peter's class is fun, freeing, challenging, deep and spiritual. It has everything you would want in an amazing class! Not only does he CARE so much about his students and their growth/progress but he is also so inspirational with his beautiful musicality, chanting and humor bringing something unique and special to each of his classes. I highly recommend Peter's class to friends, family, and anyone who wants to FEEL good after one of Peter's sweaty 1 and 1/2 hr. class. Simply put, his classes and retreats are Awesome! - Wai K.
"For someone who's taken A LOT of yoga classes in San Francisco, I can truly say Peter brings a special energy to his classes. You can literally be out of breath, hustling in to class and right when you see him, you're calmed with his presence and his smile. I've taken his rooftop classes and he uses the space well. How can you not love the view right? The music is on point and if you're lucky, he'll serenade the class a little too. The Bhakti Flow Vinyasa is reminiscent of Rusty Wells, but Peter puts his own spunk into it, which I dig. You'll get sun salutations, warriors, and always something playful in there like crow. I've always left his flow happier than I already was and blissed out. Check him out; you won't be disappointed. Can't wait to flow with him again!” - Minnie W.
"Peter's class was the first I took after moving to San Francisco, and I haven't been far from it since. I tend to take things very seriously, even yoga, but I can't help but grin through every class. Peter knows when to challenge and when to encourage, when to speed up the flow and when to remind us of why we are there. I've been to quite a few of his classes now, but I still find that each one presents me with a new opportunity to grow and to learn. Peter's heartfelt intention can be seen both on the mat and off, and he challenges his students to take what they learn in the studio back into other areas of their lives. Peter is refreshingly human in his classes, and that's what keeps me coming back for more." - Katie H.
"I had the pleasure of being lead in yoga AND getting a Thai massage by Peter at a retreat in Utah, and the experience for both was nothing short of amazing! For his yoga, it was the perfect balance between challenging and revitalizing but it also brought a calmness to my core. I practice yoga frequently and Peter's teachings are some of the best and most enjoyable I have ever experienced. As for the Thai Massage, I am bummed that Peter is located in the Bay Area, for I live in LA, and if he lived here I would go to him every week! IT WAS SOOOO GOOD! I also get massages a lot and I've never had someone feel so in-tune with my body as Peter did. I really felt like he knew the exact spots to target without me saying anything! Between the stretches, movement, and massage it was a stimulating experience. Thank you Peter for being you and bringing your gifts to us!" -Casey L.
"I've taken multiple classes with Peter. He's unlike most yoga instructors in that he hits all the necessary pillars. He hits the perfect balance of both working you spiritually and physically , and will adjust accordingly as per your needs. I would recommend everyone to at least try Peter's class once, as it's all you'll need to be hooked." -Munjal S.
I have practiced under good teachers but no one has the natural talent to energize and inspire the class the way you do. Each of your classes is a gift of your compassion to everyone in the room. These are testaments that you are a faithful practitioner and teacher. - Jenny W.
