What is your favorite tea served at Namaste?
Maple Walnut Green Tea. I have some stored at home and it makes my whole kitchen smell delicious! 

What is your favorite hike in Los Angeles?

I love going to Deb's Park! It's the hidden gem of Highland Park with the best view of the city, a little lake with visiting owls, and the best tree fort to meditate under.

Shira Barlas

Shira recently graduated from Occidental College with a focus in Buddhist Philosophy and Critical Theory. A Buddhist herself, she loves taking different Buddhist theories and incorporating them into her yoga practice. She has traveled around Asia living in monasteries in India, Nepal, and China, where she studied under meditation masters and explored a monastic life style. This past spring she finished her yoga teacher training with Mukti Yoga School.
As a yoga teacher Shira helps to cultivate a diverse environment, moving beyond static and confining notions of what it means to be a yogi. She shines a light on the multiplicity and dynamism of the practice of yoga by cultivating an inclusive and accepting class environment, and always hopes to challenge her students to face their fears and find their powers. 
After graduating from college Shira decided not to go back home to Philadelphia because she realized her home and family was right here at Namaste. She does hope to continue her education in the future by getting a Masters in Divinity with a focus in Buddhist Ministery, but until then she will continue to learn and find the divine through the classes she takes here.

Summer Breakfast on the Patio
Yoga & Breakfast is a series of summer events that combine the bliss of a yoga class with a healthy breakfast prepared with lots of love.
Come join us on Saturday mornings this summer after yoga for free breakfast on the patio! Take the time out after class to taste the flavors and textures of the food you consume: fresh fruits, juice, nuts, and oatmeal. Come enjoy the sunshine, music, and company of your fellow community members, while eating a delicious and healthy breakfast. Hope to see you there!

The breakfast is free for those members that attend a class either before the meal or directly after.
Please sign up before hand so we know how much food to prepare!
