Since we opened in 1999, Yoga Circle Downtown has evolved into a closely-knit community built upon a passion for traditional Yoga. Learn more about us and the magic surrounding what we do — here’s a collection of articles written by and about us, as well as colorful snippets of life in-studio.
During our monthly Arm balance and Inversion Workshop, Jacqui works individually with each of our students on various challenging poses, as appropriate. At the end of each workshop, everyone demonstrates what they’re most excited about learning that day. We love seeing these “after” videos. There is always so much joy in the room. Join us, and you, too, can learn to defy gravity, learn how to trust your body, and savor the possibilities.
Check out some of the amazing feedback we’ve received from students and clients. We are so grateful!
Yoga Circle Downtown was my studio for years before I moved away. Now that Covid-19 has struck, I've been
able to reconnect with Knekoh and her studio via Zoom. I hadn't done yoga consistently for the last two years, had an old shoulder injury, and had developed hip and back pain from sitting at a desk for so many years. Since I started working from home, I have been doing doing yoga here 5 times a week for the past 6 months with Knekoh, Rob, and Jacquie. My physical therapist had told me my shoulder was as good as it was going to get and my doctor wanted to put me on prescription painkillers for my back pain. I'm happy to report that my shoulder's range of motion has increased beyond what my physical therapist thought possible and my back and hip pain is gone. The studio's teaching style adapts well to Zoom as the teachers practice with the students and also provide very precise verbal cues for the various poses.”
This place has changed my life from the inside out.
The teachers, the studio, and the meditations are wonderful. I look forward to my time at Yoga Circle every single day. The focus on mind body and spirit is exactly what gets me through the week!”
Such an incredible studio and staff.
I’ve found my yoga home! I’m so thankful to find such caring and kind people who really want to see me grow and improve. Thank you!”
I have practiced yoga around the world,
and Yoga Circle Downtown remains my all-time favorite studio. The yoga is challenging, yet adjusts to all levels. It’s one of the few places with a simply authentic aura wherein I can close my eyes and feel like I’m back on a monastery roof in Nepal. Knekoh and family, dhanyabad!”
To justify venturing downtown for yoga, it has to be
that good. After moving to Pasadena, I still kept coming back. The building has incredible character. The studio itself has high ceilings and a meditative gong. The teachers have contagious smiles. I'd highly recommend Jacqui's classes for the medium to advance student. She is always there to challenge and mentor. For beginners, I'd recommend Rob's Sunday morning class and Knekoh's Alignment and Flow.”
I've been a few times & love it!
Stephen is an amazing instructor. Helpful, great vibes, great dude. I love this place.”
Knekoh was such an amazing instructor. Very fun and
invigorating class. She provided all the materials (other than the mat) and it was definitely different from all the other yoga classes I've done for the past 5 or so years I've been practicing. A must try!”
Love Rob's masterful teaching and creative flow.
A rare space of deep soul in a world of soulless hot fitness yoga. If you want to learn, meditate and practice mindfully, this is the best place I've found in the neighborhood.”
For the past week, I've been attending several classes
and this is honestly the best yoga studio that I've been to. [...] intimate environment and variety in classes instructional styles [...] really enjoyed the therapeutic yoga class for neck and shoulders [...] Knekoh is very welcoming and kind! [...] great ambience!”
Just finished my first class with Knekoh and I feel great!
She instructed thoroughly but at a steady pace, perfect for a beginner like me. The studio has high ceilings and plenty of space to stretch. Follow instructions on their website on how to enter the building. Blankets and blocks were provided. I'm excited to go back, highly recommended for anybody looking for a yoga studio in DTLA.”
Knekoh is amazing. I went for the free class and saw how
Knekoh freestyled the lesson to match the intermediate level of all those in attendance. I fell in love from one visit. I plan on coming back here.”
I have only amazing things to say about this place.
The instructors are incredibly caring and helpful. They have lots of props and flexibility for each individual person... it's a really big space and it doesn't get too crowded either. A very happy beautiful place.”
I started going to Yoga Circle Downtown about a year
ago at a time in my life when I needed more serenity and calm in my life. [...] The studio space is gorgeous and has a spiritual vibe, in the broadest sense of that word. There is not a weak instructor on the roster. [...] Thank you Knekoh for creating a space that feels so welcoming, kind, challenging, and like a real community.”
I left there feeling physically rejuvenated, calm, and
clear-minded. Physical treatment was awesome. Great experience!”
Yoga Circle DTLA is the best yoga place in town.
I have attended the class of Knekoh, Jaqui Rob and Lea and I would say that they’re really professional yoga teachers. I’m glad to learn new techniques in poses. I’m more into Asthanga but coming to Yoga circle is a different experience because you will get to appreciate all kinds of yoga.”
Love this place.
[...] The instructors are all great and understanding. [...] Love that they have late night classes and weekends that suit my busy schedule.”
Definitely my favorite yoga spot in LA!!
Super convenient location downtown and has the best OM teachers I’ve ever experienced. You got to check this place out!”
The owner/teacher Knekoh has found the perfect
yoga formula to balance the spiritual, mind, and body. If LA Latinos want to feel the plumed serpent Quetzalcoatl flying through their soul, this is the place to awaken the spinal cord.”
