Crenshaw Yoga studio was created by KarLee Young. KarLee saw a need for yoga in the local community and decided to create a unique space where the community can gather to practice yoga and dance. KarLee is a retired nurse who graduated in England as a registered nurse and midwife. Through a wonderful turn of events she had the opportunity to move and live in the US. She found her yoga practice as a way to deal with personal issues. Yoga helped her find the direction and the focus she needed to deal with life. She opened Crenshaw Yoga and Dance (CYD) to share the benefits of yoga and dance with the community. CYD opened its doors in August 2004, becoming the first yoga studio in the Crenshaw Community.

Since the studio opened, it has expanded to include four individual spaces. The studio space is open up to public use, private parties, events and workshops. She started with yoga and dance classes, and is now looking to expand into children’s wellness and fitness that can enrich the lives of young children.

Her mission at Crenshaw Yoga and Dance is to provide yoga and dance classes, wellness education, and fitness at an affordable price that will encourage the community to learn, maintain, and value a healthy lifestyle.

She developed a stage persona, Fannie Sinclair.  Her style tends to have a jazzy, Broadway flair, but can vary into other facets of Burlesque and the art of tease. After performing and developing a new found confidence in herself, she wanted to give back to the community of women that lift each other up.
