We’re excited to announce Center of Balance’s re-opening the week of May 3 as a hybrid studio!

We will begin offering in-studio Privates and Physical Therapy sessions. We’re shooting for June to get rolling with our equipment groups. Mat classes will stay virtual for now. Our goal is for both staff and clients to feel safe and supported in coming back to the studio, or staying virtual, or a combination of both.

We're setting up the studio to be as flexible as possible. After 13 months of teaching virtually, we know how effective this approach is! Now we can get back into the studio to also offer in-person sessions!

We will have mobile large screen TVs with Zoom capability so instructors can shift seamlessly between teaching in-studio and virtually. With equipment groups, you'll have the opportunity to join in-studio or virtually!

Your Health and Safety is our Top Priority!

Most importantly, we want to ensure that the studio is a safe and healthy environment. Here are some of the efforts that we are making:

We have moved to a virtual platform, so that we can continue to support the health and well-being of all of you in our community. Now, more than ever, it is important to keep up with our movement practices! Your response to our virtual sessions has been positive and very heart-warming:

“Today was my first virtual group with Center of Balance. It worked really well and I feel so good today. My instructor’s ability to cue each of us remotely was so helpful. The work was great and being connected this way to the Center of Balance community just lifts my spirits and centers my mind in the present. I am really looking forward to my next online group class!”

Our Studio is closed during this crisis

A note from Tom and Karen

To our Center of Balance clients, 



3/14/2020: Under the current circumstances, it’s clear to us that the health and well-being of our community is first priority. We are writing to share with you that we will close our studio as of the end of Saturday 3/14/2020 until at least April 7, 2020. Now is the time to take a pause and follow what has been learned around the world to help slow the spread of this virus, and to protect ourselves, families, elders and community.  

During these coming weeks, we will follow official policies by the government and assess the possibility of getting back into the studio with additional social distancing protocols in place.  

Virtual Private sessions for you - now available!

We are committed to stay connected and supporting you in having a consistent practice. All of our instructors are ready to teach your private sessions virtually. Tom has been teaching virtually with several of his clients for the last couple of years with really good feedback. Consider a quiet space in your home or office with room to move. Our skilled instructors can lead you through a balanced, centering movement experience, with or without props / equipment, and give you the personal feedback and relevant exercises that are best for you at this time.  

Please contact us if you would like to schedule a virtual session by leaving a message at the studio at 650-967-6414 or email us
