Where We Came From…

Riffs was founded in Park City, Utah, by Larry Hart and his son Steve Hart in 2010 and focused mostly on guitar retail, music lessons, and live performances. After a couple years of business we decided to expand and Steve took off to San Diego to open the second location.


Steve landed in the Bird Rock neighborhood of La Jolla, CA in 2012 and immediately fell in love with the community. He decided Riffs Studios would be a great fit to not only sell hand-crafted guitars and provide music lessons, but to incorporate the healing powers of a yoga practice in combination with live music performance.


The outdoor yoga deck was installed and fashioned to feel like a Balinese getaway in the middle of San Diego. The 1,100 sq ft. redwood deck is surrounded by lush vegetation, located one block from the ocean, and often hosts a nice sea breeze and songs from the local birds. Now we offer several yoga classes a day, including Yin, Hatha, Restorative, and Vinyasa several classes a week accompanied by live music. The addition of live music to a yoga class creates a unique and powerful experience for yogis of all levels. We also host regular sound healing events, both private and public group sessions that will bring you to a new state of relaxation.


Our music instruction program is very special to us, as we are able to provide the gift of music for people to share for generations to come. Our music teachers come with years of experience and have vast knowledge on a variety of instruments including acoustic and electric guitar, ukulele, bass, mandolin, banjo, piano and voice. We understand that each student is unique and our teachers cater each lesson to the needs of our students  using song based teaching, making it a fun and easy way to learn to play.
