a yoga studio. It is a place truly created for those
interested in evolving their mind/spirit/body through yoga and a
variety of other provocative and creative therapies to stimulate

music and conversation, or even that "cool" t-shirt, "you just

beautifully appointed in a rustic European style, with both an
indoor AND an outdoor asana room. From the rich mahogany finish
of the floors to the English ivy and wisteria blooming on the
back patio, YMI is an amazing and surprising respite in the
heart of the La Brea district.
What's more, Y.M.I.

YMI's guest for "Mocktail" Hour. Instead of a cocktail,
enjoy a rejuvenating elixir or a soothing tea. "Mocktail

with friends and meet new ones, discuss world events of your
long day, chill-out in their outdoor garden patio or even take a
class. YMI is a welcome sanctuary in the big city of concrete.
They also have
special events - we went to a guided meditation with the
narrator of the Kama Sutra film accompanied by two wonderful
musicians (we will let you know when they schedule their next
out-of-this world event!)
