Kar Lee Young
Crenshaw Yoga studio was created by a woman named Kar Lee Young who saw a need in the local community and addressed it, creating a unique space for the whole community in which it exists.
Kar Lee is a full time registered nurse who graduated in England as a registered nurse and midwife. Through a wonderful turn of events she came and live in USA. She started to take up a yoga practice as a result of some personal issues and the feeling of missing direction, or a lack of focus. Through practicing yoga she came to find herself, providing focus and an awareness of Karma, which has helped her to make the right decisions.
These experiences prompted her to open a yoga studio to share it’s many benefits. CYD opened its doors in August 2004, becoming the first yoga studio in the Crenshaw Community.
Since the opening the studio, it has expanded to include four individual spaces. The studio space is open up to public use, private parties, events and workshops. We started with yoga and dance classes, and now we are looking to expand into children’s wellness and fitness, hoping to provide dances and music to enrich the lives of young children.
CYD recently had the honor of playing host to a reality show for Oprah Winfrey television network.
