It all began with love…

a love of people and a passion for fitness gave birth to a business! This beautiful baby business was named Yoga Health Center. The heart and soul of YHC is Regina French, master yoga teacher and co-owner who along with her husband Bob created this warm and welcoming space. Since opening in San Carlos 25 years ago our yoga fitness community has grown and flourished... and has found a place to call home. 


Like all families and family-owned businesses, there are inevitable ups and downs over the years. As the parents of two young adult daughters who grew up along side the business, Regina and Bob can attest to the love and support, as well as the financial investment it takes to nurture and grow a family.


After twenty five years of supporting the well being of our Yoga Health Center community, we now need to reach out for help. More than anything, we want to continue to be there for you. Toward that goal, Yoga Health Center recently finalized a new long term lease with full faith we can get through this difficult time together.


Since our initial shut down in March 2020, we have been encouraged to make use of fundraising services such as GoFundMe. However, we did not want to proceed with that until our lease was completed. Now, it is time to share our hard financial reality.


The yoga fitness industry has been hit hard by COVID and we have not been spared. As a consequence, we have been operating at a significant loss throughout the pandemic. Even though we’ve taken advantage of government grants and loans, we still need to raise an additional $225,000 by June 30, 2022 to keep the business open. Please click here for our GoFundMe.


Through multiple closings and reopenings, as well as various government guidelines and mandates, we have done everything in our power to carry on. We have adapted using innovative techniques such as safety pods, streaming live classes, videos on demand, as well as new outdoor classes in local parks. 


Our mission has always been to help you improve your life through yoga, fitness and good health. We are a community - we are family. We are so grateful for your love and support over the past 25 years. Thank you.

Anything you can do to help would be a blessing and very much appreciated.


Regina and Bob French


We are a family owned and operated small business located in San Carlos, CA since 1996.
