Santa Barbara was known as the original “Hollywood." In 1912, The Flying A studios opened its doors and was one of the largest film studios in the country. 1000’s of movies were produced here during the silent film era, though only a fraction of these have survived to this day. Stars like Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. were frequent visitors. Groundbreaking moments, such as some of the industry's first nude scenes were even filmed here. While “The Flying A” left a legacy that continues to influence movies and television shows to this day, it is most remembered for filming some of Charlie Chaplin’s greatest comedies. Since The Flying A was located right here where YASA Yoga is now, it is quite possible that many of Charlie Chaplin's famous poses and silent expressions, were created and caught on film, in the same space you have come to practice in with us today.

YASA name comes from the Sanskrit words for “good-hearted,” a reflection of the warm vibe and welcoming community of health minded individuals. The historical, red-tiled, Spanish Mission-style building originally constructed in the early 1900's was Charlie Chaplin’s former home and production studio. The Golden Era charm shines throughout the beautiful arched Cathedral Hall, the Mission Style Studio, the Peaceful Wellness Room, the OM Retail Lounge, the Relaxing Spa, and the Quaint Training Facility.
