Westside Acro has moved once more. In January of 2018 we moved to 34 North on Lincoln Blvd in Santa Monica.
Prior to this, we operated out of Create Yoga on Santa Monica Blvd in Santa Monica California. Unfortunately, the studio lost their lease at the end of 2017. The operators of Create Yoga were incredibly kind and ran a great business. Sad to see them go.
Westside Acro formerly operated out of Laughing Frog Yoga on Santa Monica Blvd. in West Los Angeles. Due to a change of ownership in the studio, it became clear more positive environments awaited and so in the fall of 2016, after 3+ years of being associated with LFY, Westside Acro moved down the road into Santa Monica at Create Yoga.
Following is, being developed, a full list of classes both from the past which have taken place within the LFY studios. Please keep in mind this series of classes has been held every single week for at least 150 weeks straight. We are trying to get our records in order and present a record of each class but this is a big project given the rare staffing we have…meaning I’m by myself doing this. So be patient.
