Our Roots

In 1987 Maty Ezraty opened our first YogaWorks studio in Santa Monica, California. Maty successfully gathered many styles of yoga under one roof, which attracted the best teachers in Southern California and from across the world.

As yoga gained popularity in the U.S. the demand for well trained yoga teachers began to grow. Seeing this need, Maty created the world-renowned YogaWorks Teacher Training Program in 1990 with the help and inspiration of senior teacher Lisa Walford. Based on the dircect teaching from Indian yoga masters, this program has formed and guided many of todays yoga leaders, including Seane Corn, Shiva Rea, Annie Carpenter, Natasha Rizopoulos, Vinnie Marino, Kathryn Budig and many more.
