Weekly Class Schedule


As one door closes another one opens. In this case, it is La Ventana, which means “the window” in Spanish. Last Wednesday the Shakti Yoga Shala at the Big Basin Vineyards Location was closed but we are so happy to announce that two of the regular Shala classes will continue at La Ventana. 

We appreciate you so much and intend for our community to stay connected and continue to grow. Your Shala class passes will transfer to the classes at La Ventana.


9:30 AM with Samantha

starting September 7th


9:30AM with Mary starting October 7th


You can find directions to La Ventana using GPS or any map service:

La Ventana

837 Chaparral Road 

Boulder Creek, CA 95006


From the town of Boulder Creek. Proceed 3.5 miles on Big Basin Way (236) and just past the golf course, turn right onto Kings Highway. Follow Kings Highway 0.7 miles then turn left onto Chaparral Road. You may also be able to follow La Ventana signs from Kings Highway in case of any confusion. Please park in the upper road above the main driveway on the far right side of the road leaving room for other cars to get by. Our temple is located at the end of the parking road. Just park your car as close as possible to the car in front of you on the right side of the road. If you keep walking on that same road you will find the new temple. There will be someone available in case you need help.

La Ventana is located a few miles from "civilization." This isolation and tranquility can deepen your experience at La Ventana, yet for many guests it can be a significant change in environment. 

Water: We have drinking water available at the kitchen sink.

Bathrooms: We have two composting toilets right outside our temple for everyone. Please follow the instructions located inside the composting toilets and get familiar with their usage before using it.

Smoking: Smoking is not permitted in any accommodations, meeting rooms, or other indoor or outdoor spaces.





Shakti Yoga Shala classes are $15 drop in or 10 classes for $100.  Children and Teens are $8 per class or $80 per 10 class package.

Packages never expire. Previously purchased packages will be honored at the new location. 

All weekly classes at the Shakti Yoga Shala are mixed levels. Everyone is welcome to join.  The skillful teaching at the Shakti Yoga Shala addresses the needs of each individual.***
