YASA Yoga, a contemporary-style yoga studio, has opened at 22 W. Mission St., Suite B in Santa Barbara.

The studio offers group classes, private instruction, workshops, teacher training and features a specialty boutique selling yoga apparel and accessories — all in an atmosphere of natural light and remarkable architecture.

YASA Yoga is running a New Student Special — two weeks of unlimited yoga for $30. It offers classes Monday through Saturday in all levels and styles, including Basics, Flow, Power, Yin and its signature YASA Core Fusion. It also provides students with professional advisement on which classes best fit their level, from beginning to advanced, and can outline a personalized program.

Owners Ryan and Stephanie Besler recently relocated to Santa Barbara from Scottsdale, Ariz., where they had been teaching yoga classes and managing YASA Yoga teacher training programs.

Stephanie Besler, a California native and UCSB alumna, said she’s thrilled to return to her home state and the city where she began her own yoga practice, bringing with her YASA’s unique brand of yoga instruction and spiritual expression.

“If you are making the effort, you will receive the benefits of the practice,” she said. “YASA Yoga classes leave you feeling grounded, inspired and at peace.”

OM Lounge, the boutique on location, carries yoga clothing brands for both men and women, including Spiritual Gangster and Be Present. Click here to shop online.

YASA Yoga’s grand opening celebration is scheduled for July 9. Attendees can enjoy free classes all day long and will save 25 percent off class packages and retail.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
