This prime hot yoga spot in West Hollywood also has a branch in Glendale for Angelenos to enjoy. At Modo Yoga LA, the heat isn’t as intense as some venues, but it’s sweat-inducing enough to allow yogis to practice safely, stretch fully, and improve flexibility. Not at all a cookie-cutter approach to yoga, each class, some with music, some not, reflects the individual teacher in 60 to 90 minute sessions that are also big stress-relievers. The clean, quiet studios and helpful, friendly staff are also inviting, and classes run into the evening, perfect for after-work sessions.
