Black and white portrait of Owner and Founder Buffy Castillo

Land Acknowledgment: The Pharm studio resides on the unceded lands of the Chumash people
We honor and acknowledge their people, both past, present, and future, as the rightful stewards of this land.

La propietaria y fundadora, Buffy Castillo, creó The Pharm

de un deseo centrado en el corazón de crear una comunidad que dé la bienvenida y abrace a las personas exactamente como son; al mismo tiempo que los apoya y nutre a lo largo de su viaje por el bienestar. Ya sea que exploren la conciencia tranquila en la práctica de Yoga, o la conexión energética del cuerpo en la clase de Barre, o la curiosidad lúdica en la danza, o la atención concentrada en la meditación; The Pharm es un espacio para sentirse nutrido y apoyado.

Como mujer indígena, Buffy sabía muy bien lo que se sentía al no ser bienvenida en los espacios de bienestar; y estaba decidido a construir una comunidad que se sintiera diferente. Un espacio que abrazó la colaboración sobre la competencia; educación sobre la exclusividad; y equidad sobre las comodidades.


No matter where you are in your wellness journey, you are welcome here. 

Your body, your abilities, and your identity are valid.

The Pharm is completely stocked with all the props and equipment you might need for class; all offered FREE of charge.  You deserve to practice regardless of barriers to accessing or transporting personal props/equipment and here at The Pharm, we will never penalize you for those barriers. 

At The Pharm we value props as a part of the wellness toolkit that supports us along our journey; whether to deepen into a posture, find support, or explore new physical experiences.  

Come as you at The Pharm, you have full autonomy over your practice.
While all of our teachers have varying levels of additional training in accessibility and adapting the various practices we offer; you are ALWAYS in control of your journey and opting for breaks, using physical supports, making adjustments to your practice, and resting when you need to are not only welcomed but FULLY supported and encouraged!
