Love Story Yoga was created by Stephanie and David to bring an elevated experience of traditional Bhakti yoga to San Francisco's busy, creative, and dynamic yogis.


David Acker

David has started a variety of businesses centered on health and wellness. He turned to yoga 12 years ago to cure lingering sports injuries, and has been practicing regularly ever since. He is passionate about the pursuit and balance of physical and mental wellbeing, and credits his regular vinyasa practice with providing him with a bit of both.

Stephanie Snyder

Stephanie began her teaching career 20 years ago. After leading workshops and trainings around the world she knows one thing for sure - everyone needs yoga. She has poured this extensive knowledge and love of the practice into her dream of creating a yoga studio.


8 Intentions



Things to keep in mind to get the most out of your practice.



Please arrive at least 10 minutes before class starts. It may take a few minutes to check-in, fill up your water bottle, put your things in a locker, and get situated with your mat and props. If you show up late, your spot may be filled by another student.



This is the most important pose of the class. Please do not leave early.



We suggest bringing your own mat to class. If you don't have one or forgot it at home - a limited number of rental mats are available.



You'll sweat. We suggest bringing a yoga towel and a hand towel with you to class. If you forgot yours at home, we'll have small hand towels to rent.



Everything is more fun barefoot. Please take your shoes off and leave them at our studio entrance. You're also welcome to carry them with you to place in a locker.



Our men's and women's locker rooms have showers and are fully stocked with EO products so you can flow in and out with ease. Bath towels are available for rent at the check-in desk.



Please store your things in a locker downstairs.



We are an urban studio in San Francisco's Mission District. Parking is limited to street (and mostly metered) parking. Conveniently, we're just a 1 minute walk from a nearby paid parking garage, and a 3 minutes walk from the 16th Street BART station.
