      Perfect Get

      PROS Pros: Perfect getaway when you only have a few days. I left totally relaxed and feel that I made good progress with my yoga practice and enjoyed trying out new types of yoga.. Beware that if you are not used to daily yoga, you will get back feeling sore!

    • Review by Simone Arnold from Switzerland

      "I had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Santa Barbra Yoga Center. Everyone was nice and helpful all the time. They have a lot of different styles of yoga, and its worth to try everything. The teachers helped me to improve my yoga and cared about my wellbeing. The apartment was well furnished and clean. I had everything I needed. I would highly recommend the SBYC."

    • Review by a traveler

      "This was a truly beautiful and peaceful space. The bed was so comfortable I honestly haven't slept that well in a long time. The location to Santa Barbara central district was perfect. Everything was walkable. There is a very pleasant and inviting outdoor space, which is technically public to the studio, but in the evenings is really more like a private space. We had several evening meals and morning coffees at the table, and chairs surrounded by bamboo plants. I had a very convenient parking space as well. Barbara was kind and welcoming. She checked in with me just the right amount of times and had great suggestions. Took my first Iyengar yoga class, complementary, and loved it so much I registered for Iyengar classes here in Chicago. Wish I could have taken advantage of more classes."

      "I had a wonderful stay. Quiet, clean, and convenient to walk downtown. And the yoga classes were amazing. Everyone was super friendly, welcoming, and helpful. We learned so much from the knowledgeable teachers. I discovered Iyenger yoga, and am hooked. My boyfriend had never done yoga before, and now is hooked too. Barbara was helpful and engaging, as were all the yoga instructors."

      "Lovely building, bright, and clean studios with great teachers. The reception area always has fresh water, tea and cut up oranges and the front desk is very helpful. The prices are quite fair for the level of expertise that you get in the classes. Easy parking, especially in the morning. A great place to do yoga."

      "The instructors here are great, and the classes are excellent. I always leave feeling calm and invigorated. I like that the teachers offer adaptations to poses so that they are accessible and challenging no matter what your level of expertise is. The building is beautiful and serene. There's always plenty of street parking in the morning. The receptionists are welcoming. The prices are an excellent value."
