Open since 1995, Silver Lake Yoga is the oldest Yoga studio in Silverlake and among the oldest studios in Los Angeles. Our goal is to provide excellent yoga instruction in a relaxed, friendly environment. Call it Yoga without the attitude. Whether you’re coming to class to stay in shape, relieve stress, address chronic aches and pains, or to connect to a deeper part of yourself, everyone is welcome at Silverlake Yoga!
Our approach is eclectic -- incorporating many diverse styles of Yoga, including Iyengar, Ashtanga, White Lotus, and the yoga of Erich Schiffmann. We don’t promote a particular ideology or belief system. We’re less interested in defining Yoga for the student, than in the student developing his or her own definition that reflects the student’s own discoveries and values. Our teachers have diverse backgrounds and interests, and we encourage them to teach as individuals, not as cookie-cutter representatives of a specific yoga style. Collectively, we have over a hundred years of teaching experience!
We offer over sixty classes a week. These include classes for both beginners and advanced students, Flow classes, Prenatal classes, Mommy & Me classes, Kids’ Yoga, Pilates mat classes, and Tai Chi. Class size is generally 10 to 12 students. A few of our more popular evening and weekend classes can attract up to 25. No preregistration is required. Just show up a few minutes ahead of time for class and wear comfortable clothes that you can move in. We provide Yoga mats.
One of our strengths is our Beginners Classes. Co-owner, Jonathan Emerson and teacher Sam Graham teach in a style that’s easy to follow and that makes Yoga fun and accessible to everyone -- regardless of your age, flexibility, or physical condition. For more advanced students, we offer Mixed Levels Classes that introduce elements of Anusara and Ana Forrest Yoga, as well as Ashtanga-based Flow Classes with music. Expect a challenging and energizing workout!
Another of our strengths is our extensive Prenatal program. Co-owner, Juliette Kurth has been teaching prenatal yoga for over ten years. She is a certified doula and has two children of her own. She conducts workshops in which she instructs other Yoga teachers how to teach Prenatal Yoga. We offer Labor Support Workshops
for expecting couples and continue to support new mothers with our Mommy & Me Classes
. At Silverlake Yoga we are dedicated to building community. We offer three weekly Community Classes
which students can attend for a suggested donation of $8. To encourage young people to practice Yoga , kids and teen are half-price at all of our classes.
