Spotlight: Love Yoga
Posted: Jan 22 2017
When you are able to turn what you love into your career, it's a truly incredible feeling. Love Yoga is the epicenter for all things yoga, meditation, and kick-ass vibes, and how can it not be with owners Sian Gordon and Kyle Miller at the helm of this amazing yoga studio we're lucky to have in our neighborhood.
Adorned with bright turquoise floors, geometric artwork, crystals, and healing energy, Love Yoga is our favotre go-to studio with yin, vinyasa-flows, guided meditations, and prenatal classes. We spent the day with founders Sian and Kyle in Venice beach for some sunset yoga, Acai bowls, and good vibes only.
