A Sacred place away from the unsacred of hollywood 12/2/2009

I love with studio with all my heart, this is where I started my journey with an amazing teachers, wonderful people to take class with, I crave the garden space for practice, the art work and picture decor of the studio, I just can't say enough about Liberation it has blessed me and served me well, truly thankful Pros: Beautiful space, with wonderful owners Cons: Doesn't exists more

I found my practice at Liberation 12/1/2009

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 more

Liberation Yoga 124 South La Brea Ave, Los Angeles CA, 90036 11/22/2009

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 Pros: Best Yoga I know Cons: I know of nothing ngative about Liberation Yoga more

A Second Sacred Home!!! 11/6/2009

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. Pros: amazing atmosphere, wonderful classes, great prices Cons: None in my eyes. more

Love this place 10/30/2009

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. Pros: Great yoga, great attitudes, good deals on packages Cons: Parking (for certain class times) more

The Yoga Studio To Beat All Others 10/27/2009

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! Pros: Kind, Supportive environment, Everybody here rocks!!! more

The BEST yoga studio in L.A 9/11/2009

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! Pros: Soothes your soul while strengthening the body & mind. Cons: None that I've experienced more

Liberation is wonderful 9/8/2009

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. more

Favorite yoga studio ever 9/6/2009

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. Pros: Everything the yoga experience should be Cons: Small space so sometimes classes get a bit crowded more

Not just a studio, it's a home 9/5/2009

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. :) Pros: Great vibe, owner walks the talk, great garden studio Cons: laminate floored windowless studio inside more

Warm, happy and cozy place to pursue a deeper yoga practice 9/5/2009

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. Pros: Friendly atmosphere, top teachers, cool space more

Friendly, stimulating, dependable 4/1/2009

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 more

No Pretense Yoga Practice 2/25/2009

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. Pros: Kind teachers, neighborhood and communal feel Cons: Parking can be tough during the day. more
