In Buddhist and Hindu teachings, the Graveyard, or Charnal grounds, is a favored place of practice where yogis must confront our mortal destiny, our fear of death, and our aversion to impermanence.
In the Summer of 2020, as our favorite indoor Yoga studios were forced to close and we found ourselves less compliant in ZOOM classes, a few of us started coming to Hollywood Forever to practice safely together in the mornings.
We are now honored to offer this experience to all yogis, from beginners to advanced, looking to deepen their practice in a safe outdoor setting with green grass and quacking ducks.
We practice on the Fairbanks Lawn, where Cinespia movies are screened, so there is ample space to spread out and safely distance as you enrich your practice with a community again.

Vinyasa Flow is a style of yoga characterized by a series of postures (asanas) arranged together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. Expect a work out.
Silent DiscoOHM Yoga is a Vinyasa Flow class with the added feature of personal headphones for each yogi to hear music and the teacher’s guidance. You and your classmates will share your own intimate world of sound curated by Erica.
Kundalini Yoga is the ancient combination of postures (Asana) with breath-work (Pranayama), meditation (Dhyana), and word/sound repetition (Mantra) to achieve Bliss (Samadhi). We do not venerate gurus or teachers of the yogic past, instead seeking the guru within each of us. Above all, we are committed to the ancient yogic principle of Ahimsa – non-harming – with compassion as our guiding principle.
