Feeling as though her life lacked direction, Kar Lee Young took up yoga some years ago. Quickly finding new meaning in the practice, she decided to bring yoga to her community, opening Crenshaw Yoga and Dance in 2004. In its three studios, students follow the center's experienced teachers in all-level classes that cater to neophytes and veteran yogis alike. The weekly schedule also includes dance fitness classes and kids' classes that help young'uns express themselves through movement, stay active, and overcome deep-seated fears of wall-to-wall mirrors.

Regardless of dress size or dance background, each woman who enters one of The Secret Pole Dance Studios becomes a part of a supportive community. At both the original Culver City studio and the brand new Hawthorne location, instructors dish out compliments as they guide women through choreographed fitness routines, empowering dancers to overcome inhibitions and let loose along the way. During the Pole Diva and Sensual Movement classes, instructors also encourage camaraderie, occasionally breaking participants into groups and have them perform for one another. Though it may seem intimidating, this opportunity to show off in front of a nurturing audience provides students with the opportunity to build self-esteem. In addition to boosting mental fortitude, the studio's sensual fitness routines also build physical strength; pole-dancing classes sculpt arms and cores, and chair-dancing classes firm up glutes, quads, and newly emerged dorsal fins. Classes unfold in the studios or on location, but the fun doesn't necessarily end once the imaginary bell rings; groups of gals can even reserve the spaces for private dance parties.
