Silver Lake Yoga began as a joint venture between Juliette Kurth and Jonathan Emerson in 1995. While the studio has expanded over the years, the duo has remained as the center’s foundation. Jonathan still teaches beginner’s yoga classes, focusing on a fun style accessible to people of all fitness levels. And Juliette—now also a certified doula—specializes in prenatal yoga classes to help expectant mothers feel more comfortable in their bodies. They now employ a host of yoga teachers to back them up, ultimately teaching more than 60 classes in any given week. Together, they embrace a range of styles and yogic philosophies, drawing influences from the Iyengar, Ashtanga, and White Lotus practices.
All sessions take place in Silver Lake’s sunny studio, made bright thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. With all that sun, the warm, yellow walls seem to emit their own inner glow, much like yogis who practice a lot or who keep accidentally swallowing flashlights.
