French culture at indoor cycling and yoga studio in Pacific Beach
by Dave Schwab, Beach & Bay Press
If you like your workouts served up with a French twist, then Oxygen Studio in Pacific Beach is for you.
The yoga/indoor cycling studio at 1896 Garnet Ave. in Pacific Plaza II is co-owned and operated by Bam Coulibaly, who recently arrived from Paris.
Coulibaly cut her teeth as a physical training instructor at gyms in Paris for 14 years before exporting her talents to San Diego to reboot her career here. Bam’s business partner is Karim, a former high-level Karate competitor on the French national team, whose business philosophies are in line with martial arts values.
Asked about her workout studio, which has been open since July 4, Coulibaly said, “This is a place where you can be free, no troubles. Just come here and take a cycling class for 45 minutes, or a 60-minute yoga class. Oxygen is about an experience, a journey.”
Instruction at Oxygen is more than just a physical workout.
“You not only want to workout and sweat, but you can learn about yourself,” Coulibaly said. “Just think about who you are, who you want to be, (while) on a bike.”
