Best yoga studio in LA! It's a second home and a wonderful yoga family. Did my teacher training here and would not go anywhere else. Thank you Christine & Gary for holding such a wonderful place to practice yoga!

I love this place. The teacher is great and I enjoy the atmosphere. I feel very comfortable even though i'm just starting out. The only downside is the receptionist, but she's busy, I get it, it's not that big of a deal.

Pros: Beautiful space, with wonderful owners

Cons: Doesn't exists

I found my spirituality with the help and guidance of the wonderful people at Liberation. I really wasn't into finding my bliss when I started going there. I was into it for the workout. But the lovely nurturing spirit that infuses everything they do there allowed me the space to find my own entry point into a better a place for myself, and for that I am eternally grateful.

Pros: A wonderful place to find your bliss

Cons: honestly, I can't think of any

I am 50 yrs old and have been going to yoga for about 6 yrs around Los angeles, at different locations such as local schools and gyms. Those types of classes, are good however they are oriented to large groups and skill levels are loosely oriented, with a limited attention to individuals.
The first time I went to Liberation I was in a level one class,and I was hooked!! All of a sudden I was to learn with detail how to do the poses I was doing for the last several years, with a great almost personal trainer.
Liberation is the best personal classes I have been to

I moved to Los Angeles a little over 3 years ago and my first order of business was to find a yoga studio. I divinely landed at Liberation and have never strayed since. I even took their yoga teacher training course! You just feel the warmth and caring the moment you walk through the door. The classes are fabulous and always exactly what I need. Skilled teachers and the added bonus is that the other yogis that are attracted to this place are just as kind and warm and open as the studio! Truly a gem! I highly recommend.

This is my favorite yoga studio I've found in LA. I love the warm, peaceful atmosphere and the non-pretentious teachers. The teachers have a variety of teaching styles so if one doesn't fit with you, try another. They have the best policy regarding packages of classes. You can actually save money on the package and not worry about it expiring before you use it. I definitely have a soft spot in my heart for this place.

Christine Burke and Gary McCleary, owners of Liberation Yoga, have created a very special oasis in the heart of Los Angeles, which is no easy feat! It is a rare thing indeed to meet people who actually stand by their intentions, mean what they say and live their lives and run their business with integrity and compassion. These folks are it! Not to mention the fact that the teachers are incredible, kind and spiritually aware. Everyone here knows their stuff. This studio has become like a second home to me and I am so very grateful that Liberation exists!

I absolutely love this studio from top to bottom. It's gorgeous and very comfortable inside. The teachers & staff are some of the best I've ever met because they take the time to give each individual the attention they deserve while providing the class with a powerful message before we jump into action. The prices are reasonable considering all of the attention you receive and they do offer a great unlimited package. The first class is always free so you should definitely come check them out!

I took my very first yoga class here, after years of running and injuring my knees. It completely changed my life--I never want to run again! The teachers and staff are wonderful and I always leave there feeling like a different person.

Everything about Liberation is just right. With only two rooms, one indoors and one in the outdoor "garden", the classes feel intimate and personal. Both rooms have a beautiful, spiritual quality to them. It is the absolute antithesis of places like the yoga studio on Larchmont, with their oversized classes and cold feel to the rooms.

Liberation's owners, Christine and Gary, have created a very spiritual and welcoming vibe. The teachers are wonderful and it is always a joy to take classes there. There's no "attitude". They all make everyone from beginners to the most experienced feel welcome.

This is everything the yoga experience is supposed to be. The only downside is that sometimes the space can get a little crowded.....but that's because 18 or so is about all that can fit rather than the huge numbers crammed into classes at other places. Most of the classes I've taken have tended to be 10-12 students which was quite comfortable in the space.

This place doesn't have any of the pretentiousness of some of the studio's around. It's homey, and has a great, comfortable vibe. They offer great specials for KCRW and SAG members and is probably the most affordable studio in the city. The owner, Christine, walks the talk, and leads from her heart and soul. She has created a supportive, real, accessible space to practice yoga. The garden studio is very special. Water damage a few years ago caused the need to redo the inside studio. It still has a great vibe though even though it doesn't have any windows and the flooring is not as nice. Doesn't really matter though, because the spirit of the place permeates even the laminate flooring. :)

Cons: laminate floored windowless studio inside

I followed my favorite teacher, Will Duprey, to Liberation Yoga when another favorite yoga studio closed. I have not yet found another studio to match Liberation's intimacy and sense of community.

The students and teachers at Liberation are there to really learn and dig deeper into their yoga practice. No attitudes, no egos. Just fun. Gary and Christine make it such a joy to pop in and say hello.

Peruse the everchanging Art Corridor that bridges the garden & front studios to realize that creativity, talent, and the kindness to share inspires students and teachers here. Don't be shy--try a new style--you'll be welcome. Most teachers come early or stay late to answer questions in the "yoga lobby" by the front desk, but they'll watch out for you in class, too.--injury prevention and subtle adjustments are common here.Many teachers have backgrounds in yoga therapy, personal training, and dance as well as multiple certification in different yoga styles and experience teaching athletes, children, and beginners.
If you want to learn about breathing techniques, yoga music, philosophy, and tradition it's all here,in multiplicity. The variety is astounding!
For a strong vinyasa class with individualized teaching and enjoyable music, I recommend Sherida Mulrowe and Jennifer Long.
Even if you've been practicing for years, you'll be challenged by a class with Sarah Isenberg or Christine Burke9 who are also very beginner friendly).
Get the monthlY unlimited and try them all!

Pros: Breezy garden in back or cozy colorful magic nest in front

Cons: so many choices of styles, workshops, times & discounts

.

I am by no means a yoga enthusiast like so many Angelinos. However, I do appreciate kind people with clear intentions who have solid ground beneath their feet. Each time I have taken a class at Liberation, I have been impressed by the ease with which the above mentioned traits come through. I have taken classes with a variety of teachers, each with a different style, always minus pretense and plus big heartedness. It's a safe place for even the most beginner student to explore the vastness that yoga practice allows for us to enter into while still in our bodies, anchored to the ground.

This is the yoga studio you go to if you just want to practice yoga, period. A very healthy, non-competitive atmosphere and reasonable prices, particularly if you can go during the day.

This is a wonderful place with maybe one downside... Let me start with the downside: the receptionist is not always friendly or helpful. I think that could be improved.

The teachers are good, it's a great atmosphere and I love the hathi yoga class of Jessie. She is an amazing teacher and creates a wonderful energy in her class.

Thumbs up for Liberation Yoga.

Liberation Yoga is a welcome oasis in the hustle and bustle of the city and a true neighborhood spot. The main practice room has a beautiful and durable, yet "giving" floor, (trust me..I don't use a mat) and the garden room is delightfully unique. As a yoga practitioner for almost 20 years I have tried many different studios and I absolutely continue to favor Liberation Yoga. I particularly love the care and full commitment that Christine and Gary have made to the studio and the practice of yoga. This dedication comes through immediately as you step through the door. It has become a rarity in the current world of chain owned yoga studios. Teachers are fantastic.. I hope it's O.K. to say my very favorite is Lynn Taylor. My one wish: wish I had time to take more classes. LIBERATION YOGA is an absolute winner... Namaste

This studio isn't just about "taking yoga", it's about living your life with more grace and peace. The variety of classes will appeal to any level or style of yoga, from restorative, to beginner, to level 3 advanced... ashtanga, iyengar, hatha or a mix of various methods. The owners, Christine and Gary, go out of their way to welcome new students, they encourage yogis to interact with each other and become a "community". This is the only studio I've ever been to, where, upon entering a class that's full and already started, students, teachers, and often Christine or Gary will happily greet a new yogi and move some mats to make room. No need to feel intimidated here, you will be embraced.

Tried it just recently with a friend of mine, both of us were sore all over, I guess it was a little too vigorous for us. But, place is very nice, pleasant and clean and if we were just going regularly, I am sure it would make us feel great.

If you're a yoga pro you can probably go to any yoga studio and do what you need to do. For the rest of us a place like Liberation Yoga is really a gift. Very welcoming with lots of knowledge, different options for classes, friendly but not oppressive. Just a very good vibe and a very easy place to be.

This place has a great atmosphere for yoga. The instructors are thorough and approachable. This felt like real yoga, where the technique was as important as the exercise. I went to one yoga class somewhere else that seemed like an aerobics class with the instructor constantly pushing us as if they were doing aerobics. That seems silly. Liberation Yoga is not silly. It was fun.

Love this studio! The quality of classes, teachers and students amazes me, it?s a reflection of a truly devoted community of Yoginis. Their class schedule offers plenty of PM classes for 9-6'ers who can't make it to the earlier classes. Weekend classes are a most, great way to start the Saturday and feel alive! They offer a few different styles of yoga for those who want to try something new without feeling like an outsider. The seminars and workshops offered throughout the month are very beneficial to help deepen your practice.

I had given up on Yoga when I wandered into Liberation Yoga a year ago. A handful of cold and unfriendly experiences at "McYoga" studios elsewhere had left a very bad taste in my mouth. But the moment I walked into Christine Burke and Gary McCleery's Urban Oasis, I knew I was home. The asana rooms are spacious and immaculate, the Garden Studio is amazing! Vines grow up the walls and it is absolutely awesome to practice yoga outside! One of the best things about the studio is the VARIETY of Yoga styles offered; there is truly a class for everyone- Vinyasa, Hatha, Iyengar, Anusara, Qi Gong, Family Yoga, Gentle, Pre/Post-natal.. and classes are specifically named Level 1, 2, or 3 so you don't accidentally wander into an Advanced Class! There is a great little General Store in the front that always has the hippest yoga clothes, mats, props, mat bags.. as well as books, CDs, DVDs, beauty products, jewelry.. I could basically stay and shop all day. The very best thing about Liberation Yoga is Christine Burke's classes. She teaches with such love and grace, style and panache! The classes are always challenging and insightful. Your first class is free, so go! And you will know what I mean.

As a mother of an 8 yr old and a 4 yr old, finding healthy, safe, and educational family experiences we can all enjoy is always a challenge. Liberation yoga not only met that challenge, but took it to a whole 'nother level! Their family yoga classes on Sundays are THE BEST! Wether you're an old pro, or a beginner, the class is fun, challenging, and leaves you feeling fantastic. My son swears he grows an inch after each class! I recommend this studio strongly, for their friendly, helpful staff, great class options, and wonderful studios. It's also a great way to meet others that share your interests, no matter what background. Overall, a wonderful place in such a big city!

I used to do yoga at the Larchmont yoga studio, and never really knew whether I liked it or not -- until I took a class taught by Christine Burke. That was the day I fell in love with yoga. When I found out she had opened her own studio, Liberation Yoga, I left Larchmont and never went back. Whereas the classes at Larchmont were large and impersonal, the classes at Liberation were intimate and spiritual. Now, as the popularity of Liberation has grown, the size of its classes has expanded as well. But it has kept its charm, personality, and sense of community. There's a reason people talk about Liberation Yoga with a religious passion. It has changed people's lives, including mine. Liberation is more than a yoga studio; it's my temple.

I love Liberation Yoga!!! Some yoga studios are full of super-snotty, "spiritual" students and teachers who behave like gurus - but not Liberation. Nice, normal people and conscientious teachers. The teachers are enthusiastic and the classes are well-planned and varied. I never feel pushed to do things that are above my level, but I always feel challenged to do my best. It is such a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

I've taken 5 sessions here, with all different instructors. I've enjoyed all of them. I have a very fluctuating schedule which makes it hard for me to commit to one regular class. I've never felt out of place. Everyone here is really nice and they aren't stuck up or rude at all. The Tuesday and Thursday classes have been really packed for me, so you have to get there early if you want a good spot. They really pack you in, which is a little uncomfortable, but still these instructors are worth it. They are really good about giving discounts on the fees. Parking isn't great, but there is residential street parking, and I've never felt scared about walking to my car at night. If you haven't tried this place, try it. The first class is free.

I've taken 5 sessions here, with all different instructors. I've enjoyed all of them. I have a very fluctuating schedule which makes it hard for me to commit to one regular class. I've never felt out of place. Everyone here is really nice and they aren't stuck up or rude at all.

Pros: Friendly People, Garden Studio, Mats, Bricks, Pillows, and Blankets provided as needed, Cost is much better than other local places.

Cons: Some classes are packed to the inch

I cannot begin to descirbe this jewel on LaBrea. I never write reviews but feel compelled to share my love of this studio with everyone out there that has never really understood yoga. Christine is one of the most amazing women - her classes are always packed but that is because there is something unbelievably calming about her. I feel like a different person after each class and I can tell you, I've gone from 0 yoga to yoga 3 times a week and I am hooked. Liberation really feels like a supportive family, everyone is extremely friendly and the positive energy during practice and outside is really unparalleled.
I love this place and am soo glad I found it. For all those that are unsure - I beg you please GO!!!

Pros: Wonderful instructors, great studios, extremely friendly

Cons: Some classes are very full but that's a small price to pay!

Liberation Yoga is my second home. I absolutely ADORE this place. This is what yoga should be---no competition, pretentiousness, and all about relaxation and wellness. The teachers are intensely caring and the owners are the most amazing individuals. I feel like a whole new person when I leave a class here. The best class is on Sunday nights with the co-owner Christine. It is in the garden---the garden is incredible by the way---and is a spiritual experience. If you're the kind of person who likes to leave your "workout" at the gym and really invigorate your mind, body and spirit---don't waste your time on any other studio in L.A. This is the real thing.

When I landed in LA a few years back, I had no idea where I was. There were so many days when this city felt utterly, totally foreign to me. I stumbled upon Liberation Yoga because my fear of cars meant that I was walking quite a bit back then. Oh City Search Friend! I must highly recommend the sudden sensation of returning home, when, completely lost, home felt so far away. I had finally returned to a place I?d never been. A breathe of fresh air, at the bottom of the sea.

AND JUST as the dust had settled in the wake of my newfound life, I moved away to Westwood. I always came back?as much as I could. There was a great deal of work on the mat--I couldn?t have done it without them. After all that searching, I moved back to the place my heart had always been, as if finding myself for the first time.

I HAVE RECENTLY RETURNED from a fantastic journey, in which I visited the other side of Christine?s classroom. Let me tell you, it?s CRAZY over there. It all started with a sudden sense that I had outgrown my standard corner near the back door?as far away from the wall clock as physically possible. I promised myself that every time I went to class, I would put my mat down in a different place. What a trip it was. Each corner, a different place entirely. Strikingly different: a water fall, walls of rope, red lights cast upon a stereo that always read ?CHURCH? in digital letters. But even after such a grand adventure, I found I had only grown fonder of the place I had left, back on the room?s other side. I was all too happy to return.

HERE UPON THIS MAT, we have frequented a vast array of distant places, where words need not belong. Far past the rope walls, outside the church, leaving the red light district, beyond LA, across all oceans?we laugh at the Earth?s four corners, for we finally, suddenly see that they are one and any place upon the globe. But I am all too happy to return each time. I am all too happy to have found myself anew. I have no fear of cars.

Pros: Everyone smiles there

Cons: You never want to leave

I only lived in Los Angeles for 8 months, but Liberation Yoga felt like home. I went there soon after I moved to LA on the recommendation of a friend. Christine knew my name after my first visit, and everyone seemed to make a special effort to make me feel welcome. This had nothing to do with me - they do this for everyone. The staff is warm, friendly and legitimately interested in the lives and health of their patrons.

In addition to the fact that the people who make up Liberation Yoga are incredible, the yoga they teach and practice is the most fun and challenging (but only if you want it to be!) I have experienced. I had been practicing yoga for a few years in a very upscale studio in Boston and was inititally skeptical of new places. It took one class to change my mind. My yoga practice came so far in those 8 months, not only did I improve my strength, flexibility and focus, but I know that my stress levels came down significantly. I'd always leave a class feeling so much better than when I'd gone in. I tend to have a lot of stress, so this was amazing. On the fun side, Christine likes to keep classes interesting, so you'll never be bored. We were always trying new fun poses and occasionally she'll break out some really fun popular music to inspire people.

When I first came to liberation, I was also skeptical about yoga studios that did a lot of spiritual teaching, chanting etc. I found that liberation used these tools to a maximum amount of effectiveness without making students feel silly for doing them and without making individuals feel uncomfortable. It does not feel forced or over the top - just an added bonus to your practice. By the end, I was participating in mantra exercises that I loved. The wonderful thing about Liberation is that everything is done to the degree that each individual is comfortable with. They are just happy to see everyone and want them to obtain their own goals with their yoga practice. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

This studio is a true jewel. It is always brimming with supportive nurturing energy and smiling yogis and yoginis. It has two amazing studios, humble and passionate teachers and a beautiful art gallery. If you want a neverending supply of fabulous workshops, classes with purpose, intent and meaning and a community of supportive students, this is arguably the best find in the city. Gary and Christine are personable, they go the extra step with everything they do and that is what makes them such an important part of the community, the neighboorhood and Los Angeles.

The reason I love yoga is because of what I have learned at Liberation.Every single class has an amazing teacher.Christine's Sat morning class is great, and she and Gary (the owners) are truly a gift to the yoga community.I travel alot and take classes allover the country and I have never found as warm and loving a place.Here's the inside scoop for practiced yogis( aka my schedule)

1)Sat 10:00 am killer sweaty yoga with Christine, get there early it's jammed.
2)Sunday nt 7pm-candlelight yoga with Christine, this is THE SCENE in LA on Sunday night,serious yogis and actors, a major who's who but in the dark, with sweat and chatarungas.
3)Monday 6:30 pm and Wed 6:30 pm-Liz Hage- outside on the planks in the heated garden.
very spritual, with great chanting and hard work in the form of held poses.Liz is cool and sweet .
4)Thursday night-Christine- level 2-3 , this is a learning class, how to fly, how to jump, how to how to...fun and sweaty.
5) Try Steve on Saturday at 4:30, everyone's new favorite,.THE MAN KNOWS EVERYTHING.

OK, done, just go, trust me you will be so addicted that I will have to make room for you in my class,but ok I will.

This is not only the best yoga studio in the Los Angeles area, but one of the most beautiful spots in the city. Both the indoor and outdoor garden studios are beautiful spaces that inspire peace, tranquility, and love upon entering them. The teachers are top notch and equally challenging and encouraging for students of all levels. The wonderful owners have put their all into making this not only a yoga studio, but a true community. You'll feel welcomed on your very first visit and feel like part of the family of warm and loving yogis who flock there religiously by week two. Do yourself a favor and try out a class at Liberation... I am positive that you will LOVE it as much as I do!

It is because of this place that I even got into yoga - specifically christine's classes. I started by just doing the various workshops they offer (they have all sorts of cool and different workshops) and slowly worked into doing their vinyasa (not sure i spelled that correctly) flow classes and am now hooked. Truly a wonderful place with a great healing energy. I can't say enough about how great this place is -- especially gary and christine. A mom-and-pop yoga studio as opposed to some chain. So if you're looking for something more in your yoga practice (mentally, physically and spiritually) then liberation is your place to go!!

Cons: honestly? none...

I have been practicing yoga for years and have taken classes in more studios than I can count. It seems like in a city like Los Angeles - a mecca of yoga and health - that a great studio would be on every corner. not so - except for Liberation. It isn't that holier than thou pretentiousness that seems so rampant and it's not gym yoga disguised as a studio! It is the ESSENCE of community and warmth. It is real yoga - simple, true, healthy and life altering in the BEST way. The classes cater to the super novice (as well to the elderly, students with special conditions and FAMILY YOGA) all the way through to advanced flow classes that are unique and inspiring. The owners not only seem to work 24/7 but know the students personally and you always feel welcome and appreciated. So much so that Gary will make sure your car is waiting conveniently for you after class on busy nights. It seems that they truly want your experience to be magical and transformative and every detail of the beautiful place is thoughtful. They bring exciting teachers for workshops, host spectacular parties and have a very cool art gallery. The boutique is really great and very reasonable. And the teachers are top notch!! Everything at Liberation is a treat. So don't let hollywood get you down - this place is as down to earth and kind as it gets. There's plenty of parking on the surrounding streets and the class prices cannot be beat.

Liberation Yoga is the best yoga studio I've been to.
The staff is friendly and real. Not those fake nice people, but real people that are truly dedicated to the yoga community and the neighborhood.
They offer a variety of yoga styles- really something for anybody and everybody. Very knowledgeable instructors who are concerned about all of us making sure we are not only working our bodies, but our spirits just the same; and opening up our hearts.
Cute boutique in the front- the candles are amazing!
Taking a class in the Garden studio is a one of a kind experience. Listening to life happen while practicing yoga is very interesting and cool- check it out.
The entire vibe of Liberation Yoga is wonderful, for me anyway. I think you will dig it too.
AND they give you the first class for FREE- how ya gonna beat that? Your not.

Liberation Yoga is the best place to practice. Christine and Gary create a warm, welcoming atmosphere and provide a variety of teaching styles in all levels of practice. Everyone is a friend. The teachers are caring and attentive, not to mention very well-trained. You're never pushed to do more than you can, but you're always encouraged to push yourself past your own limits.

I love going there; I always know I'll be welcomed with open arms and I always know I'll get expert guidance to improve my postures. There's something there for everyone. Go. Check it out. You'll see I'm right.

I highly recommend Christine's introduction to yoga for beginners. She starts at the very beginning, so that people who don't know anything about yoga or who are afraid to jump into classes can get a firm footing. I was able to persuade my husband to just try it through this and now he goes all the time!

These are such lovely, warm people. The whole feeling of the studio is accepting and calming. We LOVE Liberation Yoga!
