Silver Lake Health & Beauty

Establishment neighborhood
Y7 Silver Lake
4300 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles
It’s hot and dark, and it can get crowded—but honestly, the more the merrier. Thanks to a booming soundtrack of Drake and 2 Chainz and the only light coming from candles, you can neither hear or see other yogis. It sounds a bit corny, but we’re saying it anyway: Y7 makes exercise fun. The beats, the upbeat teachers hollering encouragement, the lack of forced-upon-you Zen mean that an hour flies by. Prepare for a serious sweat and stretch, with a side of convenience. Mats and towels are available for rent at the desk, the lockers are the combination kind, meaning you don’t need to come prepared with a lock, and there are several showers (as well as deodorant, face wipes, and hair ties to freshen up) on the premises.
Natural Pilates
2894 Rowena Ave., Silverlake
Natural Pilates may seem mild, fairly easy, and somewhat gentle. Do not be fooled. In the hour-long class of small, subtle movements and dynamic stretching on the Reformer, you may hardly break a sweat, but your muscles will be aching for days afterward. The space is small, with eight Reformers in a sparkly clean, functional studio. Individual sessions are also available, and classes are at convenient times—like the popular 7 a.m., which means you can exercise and still make it to work on time.
One Down Dog Silver Lake
4343 W. Sunset Blvd., Silver Lake
This is the east side's most awesome yoga studio. They offer a variety of tailored classes based on nearly everything you could be looking for in a yoga session: "chill," "restore," "sculpt," "sweat," "baby & me," etc. They also offer even more customized, one-on-one private sessions, as well as on-site classes at businesses and universities around LA. One Down Dog's class packages can be used at both their Silver Lake and Eagle Rock location.
