Best

I just love YAS. It's more then just the place I workout. It's a place my friends go and we stay healthy together. YAS is a lifestyle that keeps me health and happy. Thanks YA...

Worst

can only comment on spin. very basic, monotonous routine. probably not a bad place to learn. teachers are not any better, and in many case much worse, than what you'd get at ...

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/29/2015

This gym changed the way I live! My lifestyle has changed and how I view health and wellness improved a lot. more


LIKE YAS... but there are some issues 4/30/2011

I really do like YAS and love the atmosphere. more

I LOVE YAS 12/16/2009

I just love YAS. It's more then just the place I workout. It's a place my friends go and we stay healthy together. YAS is a lifestyle that keeps me health and happy. Thanks YAS! Pros: Vibe, teachers, energy Cons: parking more

Sweat hard here 12/16/2009

I've been going to YAS Venice for three years and loving it. Kimberly Fowler's Yoga for Athletes classes are perfect for athletes. So are Sherri Rosen's spin classes. Actually, A LOT of the teachers are exceptional. And as a former professional NYC dancer and longtime instructor at NYC clubs like Crunch and Equinox, I know a thing or two about good, fundamentally strong classes that allow you to workout hard without a bunch of BS. That's YAS. Pros: Excellent workouts, instructors, vibe more

OMG! The review below is hilarious-did he actually go to YAS 10/17/2009

I like YAS for the mix of Yoga and Spinning. But, they only have 2 of those classes a day. I think they hope you will just take 2 classes instead and then pay double. The yoga section is really basic and is like watching a dvd. The poses are exactly the same every time and not very challenging. All in all, this is a fun workout for once a week, but it would get boring doing it all the time. Pros: Good cross train Cons: Yoga is very basic and is the same everytime! more

Love to Spin at YAS 1/21/2009

Whenever I am in town I go to YAS for a spin class. Great energy, great instructors, I hope they open one in NYC! Pros: Very friendly and energetic staff! Cons: none more

just right 10/28/2008

It is the perfect blend..do the spinning class first then the yoga. Look...this place is NOT for really serious Yogi types but it suites people who want to get the most benefit out of their workouts while avoiding injuries and are really serious about their fitness. The music also is amazing!! Pros: fun. active. friendly. Cons: too crowded more

snooze 7/31/2008

can only comment on spin. very basic, monotonous routine. probably not a bad place to learn. teachers are not any better, and in many case much worse, than what you'd get at a full-on gym (which is surprising given the focus on spinning here) more

I am skeptical about EVERYTHING 6/22/2008

My email address says a lot about me. I try new things all of the time but am always looking for what's wrong. I was on the Yoga Journal website and read a posting about YAS and the writer seemed a lot like me. So, I decided to check out their Yoga for Athletes class. I have to say, the class was hard! I was sweating like CRAZY (which I like), the class was packed (which I like) and when I looked around the room I was surrounded by celebrity types (which was kind of cool in a LA sort of way). The people seemed really happy to be there. Kimberly Fowler, who taught the class was inspiring. I bought a 10 class pass and plan on making YAS part of my routine. This skeptic gives YAS a big thumbs up! Pros: The teachers, the people, the environment, the staff Cons: Parking was a little challenging more

GET "YAWNED" 5/29/2008

Obviously the people writing the great reviews own YAS, and are on the desperate, self promotion band wagon as they get ready to unleash their uninspirational workout monster on L.A. Getting "YASED" simply means mundane, repetitive, non inspirational yoga, coupled with the same old spun spin. No imagination or variation. If you've had a lobotomy, are mentally challenged, or know nothing about yoga and spinning, then this is the place for you. There?s nothing like doing yoga to the ?Smashing Pumpkins? to get centered. The environment is as cold as the staff and the moves as rigid as the personalities. And if you are drawn to self indulgent, self absorb instructors (sans a few) that are like step ford wives in their approach to spinning and yoga, then go to Yas. Pros: you can leave Cons: repetitive...always the same more

Have you been YAS'd?? 5/23/2008

The best yoga I have done in LA! A straight up approach to yoga that has a kick to it with the addition of spinning....If you want to get in the amazing shape give this place a try. Do a spin class followed by the yoga and you'll work up a serious sweat and feel great....awesome instructors, friendly staff that know your name, not just scanning a card...Go get YAS'd!!! Pros: Instructors, Atmosphere, Great music in the Spinning more

YAS Rocks!!!! 5/22/2008

Great location, atmosphere and instructors make YAS the number one Yoga and Spinning studio in the LA area. Love the intensity and music that the Spinning instructors bring to their classes and after a Spinning class the best way to finish is with a Yoga for Athletes class. Pros: Always a great workout. more

great classes, great instructors, fun and challenging workouts! 5/21/2008

I've been going to YAS for years and I love the fact that at any time of day I'm pretty much guaranteed that there will be a yoga or spin class I can attend...there are just SOOOO many classes. The instructors are great, the staff is very personable and its just a place I can count on getting a good workout in and having fun while doing it. I love this place! :) Pros: great instructors, lots of offered class times Cons: parking can be difficult during evening classes...so just give yourself a few extra minutes more

Best YOGA workout in the city-it cuts to the chase 5/21/2008

I am not your "typical" yogi and I love the no-nonsense approach of Yoga for Athletes. It's the perfect amount of time, 1-hour and you sweat like crazy. It keeps me strong and flexible. I am an athlete and have not had one injury since I started taking the class. YAS, you ROCK!!!! Pros: Classes are great, cool space, great teachers Cons: Classes are packed (but it's worth it) more

Yoga ? seriously..... 4/1/2008

I have to say that I wasn't that impressed with the Yoga for Athletes class. It seriously should not even be called Yoga. The instructor did not even mention breathing, benefits or what part of the body I should be using. Maybe the Spin classes are okay, but I do not recommend taking a yoga class there. If you are a serious Yogi, try a more in depth class. more

I love it, I love it, I love it! 12/29/2007

What can I say, I've always been intrigued by the mysteriously generic gray building on the corner of Abbot Kinney and Westminster. Even more, I was completely intimidated by the garage full of sweaty, yelping people pedaling their brains out to FANTASTIC music early in the morning. On my first visit, I came with a friend to a level 1-2 yoga class. And man was I pleasantly surprised! I was first struck by the teacher, who right off, asked my name, introduced herself; really seemed interested&concerned. The level of the class was great too; it's a set sequence of positions, first a flow sequence that is pretty challening, then floor work, stretches. The class title tells it like it is "Yoga for Athletes," you won't find a huge amount of spiritual stuff in this class, it's pretty active from the get-go, which, I happen to like. The studio is beautiful, warm, lovely wood flooring, no mirrors, which I think is just brilliant, lots of space (though classes can be crowded at certain times). Couldn't ask for a better atmostphere. Pros: lots of classes, energetic teachers, energetic music Cons: parking, certain classes can be crowded more

Best Workout in California!!! 10/12/2007

I've been going to YAS for over about a year now any time I can. I travel from TX and go there at least 1 weekend out of every month and often more. I've gotten my friends and family to go with me, and we all love it! It's a complete and efficient workout that is accessible to everyone - regardless of age and fitness level. I am an exercise fanatic, and really appreciate the intelligence behind this complete regime. I saw 1 negative review which was clearly from a competitive gym owner or a jealous muscle head trainer. If you want long, sleek, muscles, a lean body, and a strong heart, YAS is a great choice for you. Kimberly Fowler is excellent and has a world class staff of teachers. They are all friendly and encouraging as they challenge you to push your edge. I travel frequently and am lucky enough to experience many exercise facilities both domestically and internationally. YAS is one of the best in the world! Pros: Awesome and efficient workout Cons: I don't live close enough to go every day! more

Best Spinning Classes in LA area 10/12/2007

I've been working out at YAS for the past three months and just love it! The instructors are great and the facility is top notch. The Yoga classes have definitely enhanced my strength and flexibilty and I've dropped 15lbs Spinning my butt off. I always feel great after a workout at YAS both physically & mentally. Pros: Instructors, Equipment & Ambience Cons: Nothing more

The most complete workout 10/12/2007

OMG!! What a great work out. The Idea of spinning and Yoga(for Athletes) is a complete body work out. Kimbrely Fowler has got this format down!! First a crazy interval cardio workout w/ spin, (my HR monitor indicated I burned 677 kCal). Then I transition into a YOGA 4 Athletes class, where my strength and focus are totally challenged. I'v never sweat so much in my life!! My body is challenged on every level. My muscles have become toned and strong; not to mention all the weight loss. WOW!! Thanks YAS!! Kimberly's Teacher Training obviously is top rate, as all of the instructors have a great depth of knowledge and are very helpful. The Teachers just ROCK!! Their energy is infectious and wildly motivating. Pros: Strong Teaching Staff. Helpful front desk. YAS clothing on site. more
