I don't live in the states but would give my back teeth to try a yoga class at Yoga Works - Westwood. Never mind about the parking. Can't you just walk??? The studio and instruction looks excellent.

Parking here is ridiculous. I LOVED the classes (with the exception of the Iyengar) but it's just just too much. The lot was always full when I went and it's very hard to find a spot on the street. If you're determined to find a spot and make it inside, it's very hard to find your balance after all the frustrations of getting in there. But I did manage to make it in there a few times and I really enjoyed the candlelight flow and the relax deeply classes.

I am an avid Yogi and practice 5-6 times a week. The staff at yoga works are always super friendly and eager to help out. I am incredibly active and have never found a more invigorating class than Brock Cahill's Vinyasa flow. His mellow attitude and easy going spirit mixed with his challenging teaching styles leaves you feeling centered, happy and completely exhausted. One of the best works out this yogi has ever seen. The parking isnt the best but get a pass and get there early. I have never had a problem parking because I am prepared for parking wars. (this is LA PEOPLE). The clothing is adorable but a tad pricey.
PRO Teachers and Serene atmosphere
CONS Parking and over-priced clothing

The classes are great when it not too packed! Popular classes can get very crowded therefore the parking becomes a nightmare. But the teachers are great!

I was so excited to find this spot-a not so hectic yoga studio with great Iyengar classes, and near my home! I love Paul's classes but the parking is just not worth it! Yoga works lot is always jammed, there is never availble street or metered parking and the lot next door costs more than the class costs! Despite arriving 15 minutes early to search for parking, I just can't find any and always end up back at home! Paul, I love your classes and teaching style, I just can't deal with the parking headache at the Westwood studio!

I'm always trying out new yoga studios and this one has wonderful classes. There are tons of classes throughout the day, varying in styles and prices, so you can always find a great class to take. Prices are average for yoga studios in the area. Make sure to get there early, as parking is a problem!

PROS: great instructors
CONS: parking

A huge yoga skeptic, I decided to try a free 1.5 hour workshop one Saturday afternoon at Yoga Works in Westwood.

The studio is very serene and sunny. They sell yoga props and clothing in the reception area, and have you fill out some release forms on your first visit and sign in on the sign in sheet so your instructor will get paid.

My instructor had the calm demeanor of someone who clearly made yoga an important part of her life. She said she had been doing it since she was 2, I think. We talked about the difference between gym yoga and studio yoga, and she asked everyone in the class to go around and share their previous yoga experience, how they had felt about it, and whether we had any injuries. Pretty much everyone had an injury, so sharing this in front of the class didn't have any stigma or embarrassment attached, at least for me, although I wonder if everyone felt that way or would have preferred a more private approach to sharing this information. I was, however, very impressed, and very thankful, that the instructor placed importance on this information. She later used it to help us work more comfortably and without exacerbating existing problems. There were about 15 or 20 people in my class. It was not crowded. The majority of the class was female and seemed college-aged, probably due to the proximity to UCLA.

You can rent a yoga mat for free or $1 or something, so save your money until you find out if you want to continue with yoga.

Unfortunately, I still do not like yoga, but that's just me. I thought this was a great place with very qualified instruction and I highly recommend it.
