We welcome​ you ​to​ ​The​ ​Yoga​ ​Channel.  We are so happy you found us.  The Yoga Channel is a cozy,​ ​little​ ​boutique yoga​ ​studio, located at​ ​beautiful​ ​Silver​ ​Strand​ ​Beach​ ​in​ ​Oxnard,​ ​California, just minutes from Ventura, Camarillo and Port Hueneme.  Maribeth​ ​Hammond​ ​founded​ ​the​ ​Yoga​ ​Channel​ ​in​ ​2002.   Currently​, ​the​ ​studio​ ​is​ ​directed​ ​and​ ​owned​ ​by​ ​Aurora  Heinemann.​ ​​ ​We ​are​ ​passionate about​ ​creating​ sacred ​space​ ​for​ ​the​ ​local​ ​yoga​ ​community​. ​​ ​We welcome you with open arms and an open heart.​ ​We offer a variety of yoga classes and class passes for any budget, and have been a REGISTERED YOGA SCHOOL with Yoga Alliance, since 2005. Many of our teachers have graduated, from our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program.

      Our​ ​mission​ ​at​ ​The​ ​Yoga​ ​Channel,​ ​is​ ​to​ ​create a safe and sacred healing space, while offering the highest quality yoga​ ​instruction,​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Oxnard,​ ​Port​ ​Hueneme​ ​and​ ​Ventura area. ​​ ​​ ​The​ ​energy​ ​is​ ​pure​ ​and​ ​light. ​ ​The Yoga Channel is the ​perfect space​ ​for​ ​your​ ​yoga​ ​practice,​ ​meditation​ ​practice​ ​and  spiritual​ ​practice.​ ​​ ​The perfect place to relax.  The​ ​perfect​ ​place​ ​to​ ​heal.  The perfect place to breathe.  The perfect place to take yourself on a journey inward.

 We​ ​believe​ everyone​ ​can​ ​benefit​ ​from​ ​a​ ​yoga​ ​practice.  MIND. BODY. SOUL.​ ​​ ​The​ ​practice​ ​of  yoga​ ​reduces​ ​stress​.  Yoga ​promotes​ ​strength,​ ​endurance​ and flexibility, while liberating the mind.  It ​restores​ ​balance​ ​and​ ​harmony​, ​by​ ​awakening​ ​the natural​ ​flow​ ​of​ ​energy​ ​that​ ​resides​ ​in​ ​the​ ​body.

 ​We​ ​hope​ ​you​ ​will​ ​open your​ ​mind​ ​to​ ​a​ ​yoga​ ​practice,​ ​that​ ​will​ ​bring​ you ​a​ ​better​ ​quality of​ ​life,​ ​while healing​ ​you​ ​physically,​ ​emotionally ​and​ ​spiritually.  We​ ​look​ ​forward​ ​to​ ​being​ ​a​ ​part​ ​of​ ​your​ ​yogic journey.​ ​​ ​

Brand new to yoga and not sure where to start?  Don’t be afraid, we are here to help.  You’ll need a yoga mat and some comfortable clothing, not too tight or too loose.  Don’t come to class on a full belly of food. Wait at least two hours, after eating.

Our Gentle Yoga Classes are the perfect place for the beginning yogi.  If you are physically fit and exercise regularly, Hatha I & II would also be a good choice.  We recommend not starting with a Flow or Yin Class.  Take a few other classes first. If you enjoy quiet time and stillness, Restorative Yoga might be a fit for you.  Please arrive to class early and let your teacher know it’s your first time.

Walk ins are welcome!  You can PURCHASE AND REGISTER FOR CLASSES ONLINE or pay at the studio! Please just arrive 10 minutes before class, so we have enough time to get you settled and set up.  And if you happen to arrive late, just enter through the back door! We don’t have a reception area, so teachers usually arrive to class 15 minutes prior and stay 15 minutes after. VISIT OUR CLASS SCHEDULE HERE.

Still have questions?  Feel free to call or email us and we can help. We are excited to be a part of your yogic journey.  Thank you for trusting us.


The Yoga Channel offers a wide variety of yoga classes, including Hatha, Gentle, Restorative, Yin and Vinyasa Flow.  We recommend trying many different yoga classes and teachers.  This will help you decide which style of yoga and teaching is best for you.

Each instructor teaches differently and it’s important to figure out who and what you VIBE best with. Don’t just take one class and decide you don’t like yoga. If you are a new student or new to the studio, take advantage of our NEW LOCAL STUDENT SPECIAL, three  weeks unlimited yoga for only $69.   Read more about our classes here…..

We also have many WORKSHOPS AND EVENTS and are a REGISTERED YOGA SCHOOL with Yoga Alliance.
