Los Angeles area tips and The Los Angeles Yoga scene
Being a Los Angeles native and a Yoga teacher, it seems people always ask me for places to go. Places to eat, places to stay in Los Angeles or the Hollywood area and other general questions about Los Angeles. So often that I have decided to just put some of my favorites on a page and cover the subject.
To me Los Angeles is one of the main places in the world to practice Yoga. We have hundreds of Yoga studios in and around the Los Angeles and Orange county areas. We also have great places to do Yoga almost year round outdoors.
Malibu Creek State Park
Yoga at the rock pool area is divine.
Topanga Canyon Trails
My favorite Yoga scenes is "Eagle Rock" About two miles up from Trippet Ranch. But be carefula as it is a long way down if you fall from your Warrior lunges.
Santa Monica Mountains
West facing slopes are a good place as a general hiking and Yoga scape. Vasquez Rocks Agua Dulce
One of the most beautiful places in the LA area to do Yoga. Find a nice flat rock section towards the southend of the park. Simply breathtaking.
I like the small waterfall about a mile hike in to reach it from the Parking lot at Temescal Canyon Yoga there is great. Clean air and just beautiful.
You can Google search these for directions
All of these are great hikes and excellent Los Angeles area Yoga practice scapes. You can just pull up and hike the trails, pick a view point and practice Yoga. Plus hiking is an excellent warm up to stretch.
Perhaps it is because so many people in Los Angeles that do Yoga have been exposed to the teachings coming out of Northern California and the beat generation "gurus." Ram Dass, Jack Kerouac, Alan Ginsburg, and many others.
Alan Watts was one of the main teachers out of Sausalito California and taught many westerners about eastern philosophy including Buddhism and Taoist thought. Watts was a very gifted teacher his topics covered everything from the sciences to whirling dervishes. He has quite an elaborate body of work. Some it is in Google book search and is available for free online. One I really liked that I found in The Bodhi Tree used book branch in Los Angeles California on Melrose Ave. was Tao The Watercourse way it covered the "sacred Tao and it is a must read along with of Course the Tao Te Ching. One of my favorites is called the world series and covers the history of pretty much of all the major world religions.
I find his lectures invaluable in dealing with the traffic we have in Los Angeles. Just turn on the lecture and the cars of Los Angeles turn into one calm breath. For more information about one of my favorite teachers go to Alan Watts for lectures. If you are visiting Los Angeles to do Yoga make a trip to the Bodhi Tree just to see one of the greatest collections of Spiritual and Yoga books this side of the Mississippi.
