Yoga Studio Review No. 1: Yoga Works Montana Ave

In Santa Monica there are more yoga studios than there are Starbucks.  That is why this coastal city full of Rolfer-going, green juice drinking LOHAS yuppies is the yoga capital of the world.  If you’re a dedicated yogi(ni) living in SaMo, you may have already pledged your allegiance to a specific studio.  However, if you’re a recent L.A. transplant or you’re just trying yoga out for the first time, the studio options can be overwhelming.  So, I have made it my goal to try out one new studio a week and to report back to you on my findings.

Yoga Studio No. 1: Yoga Works, Montana Ave, Santa Monica

This studio is near the end of the Montana Ave strip, at the corner of 15th street and Montana, ironically above a Starbucks coffee shop.  Fear not, the studio does not smell of vanilla lattes nor does it buzz with the sound of coffee beans grinding.  It is a peaceful studio with two yoga rooms, which generally have classes being taught simultaneously. One of the rooms faces east, getting beautiful morning sun, while the other room faces west, filling up with amber light at sunset.

There are two quiet spaces for sitting, one of which is a bright sun-room with large windows looking down on the street below.  In these lounge rooms, they offer complimentary Yogi Tea and cool, filtered water.  Shoes come off outside of this studio, leaving yogis barefoot, from signing in to using the bathroom.  This is a bummer.  However, the studio is kept very clean, the floors swept after every class.  Unfortunately, there are no showers here, which can be problematic for those who wish to practice right before work or during their lunch break.

The staff are very friendly and accommodating.  They have frequent sales on their retail clothes and special offers on yoga membership or class packages.

Parking can be tough, as there is limited space on the second level of the open-air garage.  You can try to find two hour street parking from 9am to 6pm, metered parking on Montana or pay $5 to use the parking lot beneath the studio.
