Some people complain that this studio is crowded, well doesn't that say that they are doing something right? Sure it is a bit pricey but that is to weed out the people who are not serious about practicing. What is comes down to is this is

I have almost nothing good to say about this location of yogaworks. I went three times and the first time I had a lovely teacher whose name I never got because she was subbing for another instructor.
The second time i took a vinyasa level

If you are looking for a Yoga studio you should probably keep looking.
This location is WAY TOO CROWDED. Just when you think the
class is really full, Three more people walk in the door. It is too pricey for the classes to be as packed as they are. I am looking for another option.

If you are looking for a yoga studio you should probably pass on this location. It is way too crowded. It has gotten worse in the last few months. Just when you think there just is not room in the class three more people walk in. I am

I practiced at this studio 4-5 days a week for about a year before I left Los Angeles.
The studio is small but the teachers are absolutely amazing! I took Steven Freedman's class regularly, he introduced me to yoga and was tremendously

List of things that are wrong with YogaWorks:

1) Ridiculously overcrowded: This place is for you if you wish to get unintentionally swatted by your neighbor throughout the class. We are not sardines Yogaworks, pls don't treat us as such.

2) Incompetent & rude staff: It seems the only qualifications needed to work at reception seems to be the ability to not give a crap about customers. It's ok to smile once in while robots. Oh and while you are at it, learn how to use a computer.

3) Poor Timetable: If like most other people you actually hold a 9am-6pm job good luck getting into a post 6pm class because even if you are 10mins early they will be full. This happened to me three times this week. This very evening they turned 6 other people (that I counted in the 30 seconds it took me to walk up the stairs, get denied by the soulless staff and leave). Luckily my commute was just 20mins each way, I felt very bad for the girl that drove from the Westside. So in a nutshell if you don't arrive at least 30 mins before class starts then you are destined to be turned away. But who the hell has the time to sit around for 30mins before a 90mins class? Erm YW, ever heard of a little thing called pre-booking a class? its SIMPLE, someone should follow the Bar Methods example, customers can pre-book classes and are charged if they do not cancel 4hrs prior to the class. Others are put on a waiting list. The model works perfectly in everybody's favor.

4) Poor business model: Or should that be clever business model? With endless offers to entice new members they are certainly attracting people in hoards but they do not have the ability to accommodate all these newcomers. But then they probably knew this but what do they care, they have the money so who cares if you can actually attend a class? Not YogaWorks. Probs too busy planning their next Yogaworks Groupon deal.

List of things that are right:
1) There is a Pinkberry next door. Thank the lord for small mercies.

See you never YW..

I have been practicing yoga at Center for Yoga for eight years. After reading all the above reviews, I do agree with most of what the reviews had to say in regards to Yogaworks over packing the classes. There is one reviewer who gave Center for Yoga only two stars and said that it's the worst yoga studio ever; I absolutely disagree. Center for Yoga has several AMAZING teachers to choose from and Steven Friedman was my first teacher there and to this day remains one of my teachers. His class is very well rounded and I have personally witnessed, being in his class for eight years, that when there is a new face in the class he always makes sure he connects with the new student and inquires if he/she has any injuries etc. Steven Friedman has a wonderful sense of humor in class, never once did I witness impatience or arrogance! Very good teacher.

I hate this place. I tried it a few times. I took a class with Steven Friedman; what an arrogant jerk. He was mean to people who weren't at the 'top' of their game physically, was impatient and rude. The guy at the desks is a complete arrogant jerk too and he's been there for years spreading ill will. Stay away!

The classes here are beautiful and informative. The teachers are well trained, and I wonder if some have medical training as well. The classes teach you so much about how certain areas of the body respond to stress and how to release stress through practicing asanas properly. I had no idea that was practicing "cobra" pose without achieving its full benefits until I stepped into this studio. They are currently giving an introductory offer for new students that is very reasonable. After that it's $22/class, but I think of it like an academic-yoga workshop. UCLA would charge more per unit than Yoga Works does per class, and without giving you the same peace of mind. Go yoga works!

Pros: Friendly staff, great teachers

Ever since they changed their prices, the classes have become waaaay too crowded. It's hard not to whack the person next to you during sun salutations. Plus, Yoga Works changed the beginning/advanced ranking of classes and they no longer discourage beginners from attending advanced classes. As a result, teachers have to spend far too much time explaining the basics to newcomers in what used to be very advanced classes. The new management seems more interested in herding 'em in than in creating a quality yoga experience.

I highly recommend the Center for Yoga because they offer a large number of classes (in various yoga styles), the classes have an excellent teacher to student ratio, and the instructors are very aware each student's experience level. They also give individual attention to students who may have injuries.
