10 Best Yoga Studios in L.A.
As is the custom for businesses located in the Valley, Black Dog Yoga can be found on the second floor of a strip mall near a frozen yogurt facility. Decorated in invigorating yet spiritual pinks and oranges, the quaint Sherman Oaks studio offers an impressively robust schedule -- doors open at 4 a.m. on some days -- and a wide range of class options including Hatha, flow and strength-building. 4454 Van Nuys Blvd., Sherman Oaks.

Stepping into Liberation Yoga on La Brea Avenue feels a whole lot like returning to the loving embrace of your old college dorm room. Rice paper lanterns dangle from the ceiling, curls of Nag Champa waft through the air, and the light remains dim and cocoon-like throughout the day. Classes are held both indoors and outdoors in a semi-enclosed garden area, so you can have the enlightening experience of communing with nature without having to camp or anything. 124 S. La Brea Ave., Los Angeles.
