What travellers are saying
- Best yoga studio in the city. Wonderful, knowledgable, friendly teachers. Beautiful and clean studio, with a variety of classes. The best part is the heat is perfect, I've been to many hot studios where it was too hot but here you'll sweat without that too-hot feeling. Yoga is the best exercise you can do; enjoy.Written 14 May 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I have been going here ever since it opened, and I have never went anywhere since. The top-roping and lead climbing routes are world class and the bouldering pretty sizable (upstairs and downstairs). They're really encouraging to new climbers as well! I really recommend this place if you're looking to start climbing or you're a seasoned climber looking for a large variety of routes!Written 12 September 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- My wife and I love Goorus! It's a smaller and more personal studio, and doesn't have the institutional or competitive feel of many local studios. We felt instantly welcomed by the staff, instructors and our fellow yogis. Goorus has 2 studio; one small and one larger. The largest class we've taken had at most 25 people...small enough to stay intimate. There's also a nice variety of classes. A few parking spaces are available behind the building. Goorus feels like home! ❤️❤️❤️Written 24 September 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- As a martial artist with -very- inflexible wrists, I resisted doing yoga for a LONG time. I was talked into attending one of the Set & Flow classes by a close friend, and have been very impressed with both the quality of instruction, as well as the excellent "vibe" of the place, the instructors and the people in the class.
The energy is fun, encouraging, and welcoming. The instruction is clear and I didn't feel intimidated as a beginner... This is the kind of place that makes you want to keep coming back!
The location itself is amazing. It's beautiful, modern, and... well, it's huge, but in a good way... Because they have a wide offering of classes and options (kettle bells, yoga, hot yoga, pilates, etc.). And the pricing just makes it a no-brainer.Written 23 August 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I recently stayed in this beautiful location for a spiritual retreat. The center is located in a fairly busy part of Los Angeles but was extremely quiet and peaceful. The resident Swamini-ji and staff were warm and welcoming with excellent instruction and available to answer any questions. I enjoyed the experience and more importantly left with inspiration to continue my spiritual practice outside of the center and an increased understanding of myself and others. I plan to return and highly recommend this center.Written 10 February 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- For those travelers lucky enough to be in Venice/Santa Monica in the spring and summer, all you need for a party is for the sun to come out. Many stay at the beach and do not get the "full monty". The key streets to shop, eat and play are Abbot Kinney (Venice, voted the coolest street in America) and Main Street (Santa Monica) a legendary playground. The best place to play is YAS, a state of the art yoga and spin studio which recently moved from Abbot Kinney (after 15 years) to Main Street on the border of Santa Monica.
There is nothing like the energy of indoor cycling classes at YAS. The instructors are well trained and are incredibly motivating and supportive. Music is key, and the instructors are known for the best music in town. The energy, motivation and music come together to make cycle classes at YAS safe, fun and effective. Regardless of how fit, flexible or coordinated you are, you’ll get a great workout. Be ready to sweat!
The owner & founder is Kimberly Fowler, lawyer, yogi and originator of YAS (yoga for athletes and spinning). I first went in 2004 (when I found out that it was at Bruce Lee's old studio in Venice) and became hooked (I drive from Beverly Hills at sunrise to get there weekly). I use it for martial arts training (I am a black belt in karate). Others are serious yogis (unlike me who is always on the verge of falling down on the balance poses). The vibe is fun... music, cool teachers, and great pace. No "yoga nazis" who torture you with their demons. No pretense, no drama just "good, clean fun" (tough to find in 2016).
So why yoga? Improves health, longevity, reduces stress, makes you stronger, leaner more energized and gets you in touch with the universal rhythms which are most pronounced at the beach (best understood by "watching the waves"). Yoga was brought to the US by Paramansa Yogananda whose lakeside shrine in Pacific Palisades is my "house of worship" (which includes ashes from Gandhi who was, like Kimberly, a lawyer and yogi).
Yas has just moved into a beautiful new studio. Don't you want to play at the beach in California? If so, start at YAS you will be glad you made the move.Written 24 April 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Have taken a few teachers here and my absolute favorite teacher here is Beth Bromberg! She is super friendly and will know you by name after your first class...but don't be fooled by her peppy demeanor cuz her class is super TOUGH. She moves through all the exercises quickly so keep up! I love it when she starts counting down cuz I know we just might...just might get a tiny break!
Classes can be found on ClassPass so have loved adding Beth's classes to my weekly workout routine.Written 12 October 2015This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I went here for their Polistic Pole Dance & Sexy Pilates class Monday night and it was SO MUCH FUN. You walk into an adorable room decorated with fabric and feathers and find yourself a mat. The room is dimly light with candles and you're instructed to close your eyes while the instructor takes you through breathing and finding peace within and eventually into pilates. By the end of pilates I was having trouble standing on my own two legs but was so excited about the pole! Of course there were girls in the class that were twirling looking super graceful and climbing up the pole. Don't be mistaken you will NOT do this in our first class but it's OK. It's something to aspire towards.Written 28 April 2015This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I purchased a Groupon a few years ago and used the discount on their website. The Groupon itself was about $11 for annual membership. During the next few years, they kept charging $30/year on my card without notification. I just found out that I paid at least $60.Written 2 March 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- If I can give a zero I would. You want to be discriminated, bullied and talked down to by the pilates instructor during a group class two classes in a row without any provocation? Then go take a pilates class with Ricardo Grandos as the instructor. He won't give you any helpful pilates instruction to participate in the class rather he will tell you "You are doing this wrong, why are you in my class?".
Pilates is for enjoyment, since when did anyone have to get every single movement exactly right and need to read the mind of the pilates instructor?
My response was "Am I not allowed to take your class?"
He didn't respond to that question and keep taking the class.
10 mins later he came back and said " You are doing it wrong."
I said "If I know how to do everything exactly right, why would I need this class? I like taking this class. Your tone is condescending and that is not ok."
Then he told me to leave his class. He never gave me any pilates instructions, just insulted me repeated that I was doing it wrong. If he doesn't want to teach the class, he shouldn't be an instructor. I got my full money back. I will never return to this Club Pilates. I also got this condescending attitude on the first class. The management is even worse, don't waste your money here.Written 16 April 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
