Liberation Yoga


Greetings Beautiful Yogi’s of Liberation!
Please come join us for our final kirtan in the back garden before we move!
All proceed donated to moving costs.
I'm a new member at Liberation Yoga and have been very impressed with the level of quality and variety of the teachers and classes. And look forward to more. So, thank you for that.

May I, however, air a few grievances?

I was looking forward to checking out the 8 pm Sound Healing Meditation class tonight (Tuesday) and even invited a friend to meet me there and take the class.

I called Liberation this morning to check whether we had to bring mats or dress in a certain way, but it seemed impossible to reach an actual human being on the phone there; there's just an outgoing message ending with an encouragement to check the website for more information.

So, I checked the website to make sure the class was happening. It said nothing about it being cancelled.

When I arrived at Liberation tonight at 7:45, the doors were locked and there was nobody inside. It completely had the appearance of a closed business. Finally someone showed up around 7:55 to let people in. We signed in and were waiting by the back room for the other class to end. At 8:04 pm, the other class was still going on and the man running the front desk informed us that our class had been cancelled.

Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed that there was no word of its cancellation online earlier in the day, and the person in charge didn't even seem to know it was cancelled until minutes after the class's scheduled start time. The class was even promoted at the top of your sidewalk chalk board--and no indication of cancellation there, either.

Anyway, I'm sure there's an explanation for all this. And I'd love to know what it was. An emergency? Unfortunately, what happened was not very member-friendly, to say the least. Maybe consider some kind of compensation or refund when this happens.

And it would also be nice if you could ask teachers to end their classes at least 10 minutes before the next class begins so that the next class has the opportunity to start on time.

And have a phone line where an actual person could be reached.

Thank you for allowing me to vent!

On Monday it will be 2 months since we moved from our beloved 124 S. La Brea Home of 15 years to our new and blessed location at 1288 S. La Brea. We could not have imagined moving Liberation and while it broke our hearts - it was preferable to closing altogether which was our only choice given multiple circumstances including an astronomical rent increase.
And now 2 months in, the energy is so bright and expansive, we are in love. With the new space, with the new students and with those who traveled with us. If you have yet to come - do it now!! It's the cusp of a powerful Eclipse (Tuesday) and the summer solstice is shining bright.
Join us in a YOGA CHALLENGE - choose your commitment between July 1st and August 31st - How many classes do you want to commit to? Email [email protected] and I will create a group of support and community to see you take your practice to a new level this summer. We will connect encourage and cheer each other on so that no matter where you start - you will feel empowered and LIT Up by the end of summer!!! We all have things we are shaking off, moving through and emerging into - let's do it together! XOXO

[03/04/19]   It's a beautiful day to be alive. The sun is shining and so are you. If you can't find the light for yourself today, find enough to hand someone else a smile and let their smile come back to you and light your heart in exchange. "If you have a problem and there's an action you can take- you don't have a problem." Take action today and start with some self care. What's the kindest thing you could do for yourself right now?

Liberation Yoga's cover photo

[06/25/18]   As we stand on the cusp of 14 years as family run independent studio in Los Angeles, the view is very different in our city and the world than it was on 2004. Despite the darkness and often frightening direction that is unfolding, I feel a grand sense of HOPTIMISM (current favorite of my parade of made up words) when I see the faces in our classes, and the incredible lightowrkers all over this planet in action. We might be divided in many ways but I see more unity than in a long time as well.
Our mission at Liberation becomes clearer with each day and the phrase that Gary (husband and co-founder of Lib) coined 14 years ago on our cards and t-shirts is more relevant now than ever:
"GETTING YOU IN SHAPE FOR THE REVOLUTION!" Whatever your revolution is, wherever your passion for light and love lands, we are here for you - a safe harbor and a place to launch your visions with mind, body and spirit tuned and turned on.
We hope to see you on the mat soon - I'll be there tonight at 6:30pm and please keep the faith and your light burning brightly - YOU ARE ESENTIAL. Every little act of kindness is seed in the garden of LOVE LOVE LOVE~


$100 off tuition until June 13th!

Still deciding? Hear from our recent YTT graduates!!

Teacher training at Liberation Yoga was the most life-changing experience. Every night after training I would go home and think how grateful I am to have found such a perfectly balanced studio to deepen my practice at. Every one of the teachers is so passionate, caring and giving about their craft. It was an unforgettable experience, with a beautiful group of women, who will forever be my yogini soul-mates. I can't say enough positive things about my experience there. I've never felt so whole, balanced, and loved. Even though it was rigorous, every bit of information has been thoroughly useful and it really pushed me to listen to my body, mind and spirit. I felt connected to myself at a deeper level after the training. A wonderful opportunity to delve deep into this ancient, spiritually cleansing practice, and find one's true inner needs. I cannot thank Christine and the team enough!
I decided to sign up for teacher training when I realized there was so much depth to yoga and I wanted to understand it. It was a personal pursuit. I wasn't sure if I wanted to teach. I chose Liberation Yoga because it just felt right and I had been practicing there for years. It turns out it was one of the best investments of my life -- I turned my life around and I'm teaching! I'm more than grateful for the experience, the teachers, the friends I've made and of course, Christine. I'm one to just pop into a studio, take a class and slip out with few interactions. But now Liberation is my second home in LA and love the community here.
"Liberation yoga teacher training was one of the most magical experiences I have ever been lucky enough to take part in. As soon as I walked into Liberation yoga, I felt such an overwhelming sense of home and community, having recently moved to LA from London, I felt instantly connected and welcomed. Christine is one of the most special people I’ve ever met, leading the teacher training and owning the studio with her husband Gary, she made the training exceptionally warm and loving. The training is so transformative, coming from a heart-centered place of spiritual grounding, with a lot of incredible in-depth study on the philosophy and history of yoga, it really is a special training that I don’t think I could have found anywhere else in the world. With all the teachers being incredibly inspiring, having spent years learning their practices, and being very open and willing to share their knowledge with the students. You get a very in-depth introduction to many areas of yoga including anatomy, history, philosophy, pranayama, sequencing and so much more. Following on from the training you have the chance to undertake mentorships with wonderful teachers at Liberation, this really allows you the chance to practice and develop the skills you learn in a real studio environment and is an amazing part of the training to continue your learning."
I am grateful for Liberation Studio. There are certainly MANY yoga studios in Los Angeles. I find Liberation to be fundamentally different than all other studios I have experienced. The teachers demonstrate compassion for everyone in their class, from a place of holding patiently the space for others to believe in themselves and in this life. I sought out a center of yoga to participate in a 200-hour teacher training, as I too wanted to learn productive ways to help myself feel better in the day-to-day and, down the line, help others. I visited many yoga studios in L.A., including most of the well-known chain establishments. During none of these visits did I have a sense that the studio owners cared about much more than providing a place for body fitness and making a profit.

Christine, co-owner of Liberation, warmly invited me to meet before her Sunday evening class. I walked in and saw this warmth in flickering candles and, to my eye, eclectic East Asian pieces that felt sacred. Christine sat with me, and asked about who I was and what I hoped to gain from a teacher training. She invited me to attend her class in a grounded garden of ivy and wooden pillars and colorful, prayerful tokens. I kept thinking, "wow--if I ever teach a yoga class, this is just how I would want to teach it". Christine opened with a tidbit of philosophy she had been stewing over that week, then led us in a breathing exercise that was new to me. We moved over our yoga mats as she seemingly effortlessly guided and shaped and encouraged us. I felt her confidence in what she was doing, and felt instant trust. As the class winded down and the night air chilled also, we laid back in the final pose of savasana. Christine and her teaching apprentice handed out sleeping bags to those who wanted them: I felt so warm in the flannel bag and I knew that this place housed depth of thought and heart.

Liberation's 7-week teacher training was rich in opportunities for "life knowledge" and "yoga practitioner knowledge". The daily morning practice I learned has empowered me. I will continue to be present at this studio, and I sincerely hope that the studio can be present for 1000s more people in the years to come.
