HI THERE!

Yoga Vibe opened its doors in January 2012. Owners Larry and Amy Santiago set out to create a space with a great vibe… a neighborhood vibe, a community vibe… where yoga is fun, playful and full of energy. Beginners and seasoned yogis alike are welcome in a warm and friendly environment. We believe yoga is for everyone, every shape and every size. We hope Yoga Vibe is a place you’ll call home. It is set in a craftsman house, transformed into one of the most quaint and inviting yoga studios in LA, and with complimentary hot tea and free WiFi, the atmosphere couldn’t be cozier!

I’m a prolific writer and performer of jingles (usually about my dog) but I’m totally embarrassed to let anyone besides my boyfriend hear!

Name one thing you want us to know about you.
I love everything about yoga from the asana to philosophy to spirituality... but I also think that the thing that is so powerful about yoga - and particularly the community at Yoga Vibe - is it allows people to meet the practice wherever they are at. If you are just here for the physical practice you are just as worthy of a space in the room as anyone else.
