Our founders Maty Ezraty and Chuck Miller were serious and highly accomplished yoga practioners who wanted to share the gifts they learned from their teachers. When they opened our first studio on Montana Avenue in 1987 they gathered together many styles of yoga under one roof, and set the standard and curriculm for the 30 studios we operate today in California and New York. The teacher training program started by Maty, Chuck and senior teacher Lisa Walford in 1990 has become recognized as one of the finest programs in yoga education, and is now available in 50 cities in 17 countries.


At YogaWorks, we believe Yoga is for everyone. It is our mission to honor and embrace each student’s search for personal growth, wellbeing and fulfillment by offering the highest quality yoga programs to people of all ages and from all walks of life.

We do this with love, compassion, a sense of humor and with respect for what each individual can accomplish through Yoga and throughout their lives.
