What’s Mobile Yoga?

What’s Mobile Yoga?

Many people never pursue or continue a yoga practice because they’re discouraged by crowded studios, traffic, and crazy schedules. So we decided to make our classes “mobile” and bring them to you!

Chakra 5 started mobile yoga classes in 2009 to make it more comfortable, convenient and affordable for people to practice yoga under the guidance of an experienced instructor at home, school or work. We even have classes in public spaces like parks, community rec rooms at apartment complexes…you name it.

Every HR manager wants that coveted “Best Company to Work For” award. One of the most fun, easy ways to inspire and motivate your employees is to offer yoga classes at the office on a regular basis. Yoga classes are a low-cost and innovative solution for companies wanting to reduce health care expenses, relieve workplace stress and promote employee well-being.

Healthy employees are more productive and more cost effective. In a recent study on worksite health programs by the American Journal of Health Promotion, corporations realized $3-$6 in savings for every $1 invested in wellness programs.

Why Chakra 5?

With Chakra 5, you have a team that’s been working together for years, specifically experienced in going out into the world, teaching in various environments and working with various levels of students.

Our team is mostly comprised of advanced 500 hr level teachers, some with specific degrees in yoga therapy.  Chakra 5 yoga classes are fun, sensible and encouraging. We respect deeply all levels of students and all body types. Our #1 priority is to make sure you have fun, feel challenged, and do it all safely!

How It Works

How It Works

Popular Classes

Kids Yoga
Many of Chakra 5’s instructors specialize in Kids’ Yoga, where “mini yogis” can develop their flexibility, creativity, focus, and coordination. Start little ones early with a platform for a happy, healthy, balanced life.

Wellness Events
Work with us to create a wellness event for your company. It can include live music (DJ or performer), a yoga class, stress management workshops and cooking demonstrations (with delicious snacks to eat later).

Film/TV Shoots
Hire one of our instructors to be available for a 4 hour block on set to offer 15 minute yoga sessions to anyone, anytime, anywhere.


Did you know we can teach yoga sessions right at employees’ desks? But if you have the space for group classes, calculate a minimum of 32 sq ft for every student. This accounts for a 2’x 6′ mat and extra room to students to comfortably extend limbs and teacher to move around.  If your space is 500 sq ft, you can accommodate 16 people.

Yoga Classes, Downtown Los Angeles Style

“There are so many yoga classes in this town that we Angelenos are blessed with an incredible amount of variety and eclecticism. Case in point: a DJ directed yoga class called the Chakra 5 Yoga Lab, held in a loft Downtown. Groove guru, McKenna Rowe, is the DJ and yoga instructor who has fashioned these cool and contempo classes. They mix music, technology and of course some power yoga moves. The cost for one class is $10. A series of five costs $40Eventually, the DJ/yogini will spin live sets and bring in guest DJs as well. Rowe also offers a mobile version of the class for which she will come to you.”

Creativity in the Heart of Downtown
“Chakra 5 is a creative approach integrating music and technology for people to bond in a Yoga practice. Rowe hopes to attract community members including local artists and musicians. Her vision is to showcase new sounds from local artists with live DJs to enhance her energetic Yoga practice. Chakra 5 reaches out to the community by promoting local businesses as well as partnering with rising musicians. Enjoy a colorful playlist or a live DJ while doing Yoga in a fun, comfortable and encouraging environment.”

Downtown LA’s Newest Yoga Community
“Part mobile yoga lab, part social experiment.”


“Killer space, wonderful classes, and SUPER SUPER SUPER affordable, without losing an ounce of quality.”

“Imagine a second floor studio apartment with wood floors, roof windows, lots of natural light coming in filling the space, aerie environment …just magic! It just feels a second home to me. Great instructors, owners & stuff creating high positive clear energy through Yoga in a unique LA’s spot. Its a blessing to my mind, body and heart to get to practice different yoga styles with professional, fun and loving instructors. Chakra5 ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!”

“…this area is developing into quite the developing scene…For yoga lovers, this is definitely a cool, new place to check out.”

“The studio is large, airy and has great light. The calming atmosphere definitely enhances the practice. The class was invigorating yet calming, and I loved the personal attention. Would definitely recommend this to everyone, from beginners to advanced yogis! The neighborhood is also very cute, complimenting a community space.”

“The instructors and community here really care. There is a feeling of welcome, without any of the ‘kooky’ that has a way to invade even the best intentioned yoga studios. C5 is going to take off. When will you have gotten in on the fun?”

“a wonderful little yoga studio on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles…they aren’t hung up on different styles or ability levels. Classes are open to everyone from first timers to experienced yogis and there’s no pressure to perform a certain pose if it doesn’t feel quite right – you’re free to opt out if you wish!”

“Chakra 5 is low key – friendly & welcoming, less super-chichi than some west h’wood places but suited to the neighborhood in that way…you should check it out. They have an AMAZING deal going for first time students: $50 for an unlimited month. Can’t beat that. Also their regular prices are super reasonable.”

“I feel absolutely refreshed and energized after taking this yoga class. I’m a first timer and the class was perfectly paced and well instructed.”
