How to Find the Top Yoga Studios and Classes in Los Angeles

According to Mindbody’s 2020 Wellness Index, Los Angeles, CA is the number one most active city in America, with 87% of people working out at least once a week and the highest percentage of residents who exercise five times a week or more. Maybe it’s the 284+ days of sunshine a year, or maybe it’s the 75+ miles of open coastline and surf spots that inspire people to work out... who knows—regardless, good for you, LA. (Not to mention, they’re the most hydrated and have the healthiest diets).   

When it comes to yoga, Los Angeles also tops the charts. 10% of Angelenos who work out at least once a week are choosing gentle/restorative yoga, and 12% are opting for power yoga. In the last 24 weeks, Los Angeles Mindbody app users on iOS devices have averaged 1,112 bookings per week—now that’s what I call dedication to the flow.  

Check out the Definitive Wellness Guide to Los Angeles! 

With so many studios in LA, it’s hard to narrow it down. To help you find the best yoga in Los Angeles, follow our step-by-step guide to choosing the best experience.  
 


1.    Read the reviews!  


Find out what people are saying. I don’t know about you, but I am big into reading reviews. If I'm looking to buy a piece of clothing or a product online, I literally won’t buy it if I don’t see any reviews listed. How can I know for sure what it’s like if I can’t see any comments from real people?  Why would it be any different when I am looking to find a yoga studio?

Ratings and reviews are a great way to find out what other people like and dislike about a studio, things you should know, ways you can prepare, suggestions on the best instructors, and so much more. So, if you’ve never heard anything about a certain studio from your real-life friends, check out what the people are saying on Mindbody!  

Just head over to Mindbody.io, click ‘fitness’ in the search bar, set your fitness type to yoga, and filter the ratings to 4.5 stars and up. Then, click on any studio that looks interesting, and scroll down to read the reviews! 

2.    Look for virtually any class you want 


(Ignore the terrible pun.) With the rise of online and virtual fitness, you can find and take just about any class you want, anywhere. So, if you’re not currently in Los Angeles, but you want to try one of their awesome yoga classes, pick a studio with virtual offerings that fit your schedule.

On Mindbody.io, click ‘fitness’ in the search bar once again. Then, click ‘classes’ on the top left, and select ‘virtual classes’ to see all the upcoming live stream and on demand classes available! And don’t forget to filter your fitness type to yoga. 

3.    Find yoga classes in your neighborhood 


Whether you live in Los Angeles and want to find local yoga classes to try in your neighborhood, or you live outside the city and want to narrow down your search, location-based browsing is a good way to go. Maybe you have a favorite area of LA you want to explore, or maybe you want to see what kind of studios West Hollywood has to offer (because you know, celebrities probably get their Down Dog on there). Los Angeles is huge, and you can’t even scratch the surface of all the amazing yoga classes and studios that it has to offer.

So, try out a little LA tour of your own. Hop on Mindbody.io and start moving the map around. You’ll start to see different studios popping up as you switch up your radius (and it’s pretty fun). Plus, if you really want to have fun with it, you can try classes in lots of different areas. Beginner yoga in Santa Monica today, breathwork in West Hollywood tomorrow, Hatha yoga in Venice Beach this weekend, and a Vinyasa yoga flow Downtown after that. Try them all—and leave a review, maybe you can help out those people up there in step 1. 

That should get you started on finding the best yoga classes in Los Angeles. Once you start playing around with these search options on Mindbody, you’ll start to realize the opportunities are endless. So, if you’re ready to start filling out your virtual yoga LA trip itinerary, you can start here. Head on over to Mindbody and start browsing

Done with LA? Maybe you want to head a little further south and check out a few of the top 10 yoga studios in San Diego. More of a Bay Area person? Look no further, we’ve got that too.

Kyle House Fitness is Chattanooga’s premier fitness program offering group fitness classes and personal training with the best-certified instructors and trainers in the area. Located on Chattanooga’s thriving Southside, Kyle House Fitness is more than a gym, they pride themselves on building a welcoming and inclusive community. The owners of this gym, Kyle House and Kyle Miller (AKA The Kyles), may sound familiar to you since they recently wrote a blog post for us on how to be an LGBTQIA+ ally in the fitness space.

Since they happen to be one of the most influential duos in the fitness industry, we were eager to sit down and learn more about what wellness means to them. Ready to get to know The Kyles better? Let’s dive in.

Tell us about yourself. What led you to where you are now? 

We have always had a love for fitness. From an early age, we were both very athletic (swimming, gymnastics, and cheerleading). Once we graduated, we slowly transitioned into training young athletes and then later started working on our careers. Kyle House started personal training at a large gym and began building a solid career as a personal trainer and groups fitness instructor. Kyle Miller started working in marketing and communications ranging from politics, law enforcement, and tech becoming a leading public relations professional. After working in their fields for about 10 years they decided to combine their love of fitness with their experience and built one of the most successful fitness facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun...
What inspired you to open your business? What motivates you day-to-day?  

During our time working at other gyms and visiting other facilities that many were either missing qualified and motivating trainers, topnotch customer service, or a workout that was balanced and would lead to results for everyone whether they were casual fitness enthusiasts or hardcore athletes. We are motivated on a day-to-day basis by the idea that we can always be better. The experience can get better, the community can grow stronger, and we can continue to show people that fitness is more than just a way to look good, it's therapy.

What does wellness mean to you? Has it evolved over the past couple of years? 

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun... it's not all healthy food, it's not just junk food—it's about finding a way to reach your own personal goals while still having a healthy relationship with fitness, friends, family, and food—otherwise known as the four Fs.

If you're in the Chattanooga area, you should definitely check out Kyle House Fitness to take your wellness routine to the next level. You can book classes on the Mindbody app or through their KHF app.
