Welcome to the Phamily

Welcome to the Phamily


sva—meaning “self.”

dhyaya—meaning “to contemplate”

Thus, Svadhyaya is the study of one’s own self and one of the key practices in Yoga.


          Owner and Founder, Buffy Castillo, created The Pharm

out of a heart centered desire to bring people together to connect through the practice of Self inquiry.  Whether through the quiet awareness in Yoga practice, through body connection in Barre class, through playful curiosity in dance, or focused mindfulness in Meditation; The Pharm is a physical space for learning and growth. Because, as our Phamily here believes, if we heal ourselves inwardly, we can then move that healing more fully out into the world, and we can pass those lessons on to the generations to come.

        The Pharm offers a wide ranging variety of weekly classes accessible to all levels of practice as well as regular educational and wellness workshops and community outreach events.  We are a family friendly environment that encourages active participation of all ages. And, just as our practice of self-study evolves and changes as we grow; so too does The Pharm shift and adjust to meet the needs of our community.

" The Pharm is such a wonderful space. I'm very excited to keep coming and to recommend to my friends, family and coworkers. I have a 3.5 year old and a husband that will love coming as well. The family friendly environment, kind members and wonderful teachers are amazing. I look forward to my next class. Namaste!
