Clean, nice environment, and affordable. It was only $10 for an hour. First time trying yoga, not to mention hot yoga. I was worried I'd feel self conscious and not be able to keep up. That was not the case at all. Studio was dim and comforting. The ambiance was soothing. I wasn't focused on being self conscious at all. The instructor was consistent and easy to follow. She gave great instructions including letting beginners like me know that if we felt comfortable we could move to the next step, or hold the pose we were in and that would be perfectly fine. The pace was one I was able to keep up with. I've never sweat so much in my life. It felt great. I'm definitely looking forward to attending again. If you want to try and don't have a mat, they have mats, blocks, and straps available to use. More...
I absolutely love this place!! I tried a few instructors but after taking my first class with Kelsi S. I was hooked! She’s a yoga goddess and her classes are the most amazing!! Between her and Dana, I feel challenged every week in new and exciting ways! I look forward to going to Kelsi’s classes every week, and look forward to going to yoga every day! Warrior 1 yoga has become like a little home away from home, and the staff are like family. They have tons of variety in class type, so there’s something for everyone. But seriously! Check out Kelsi’s classes, they’re the best and she’s the sweetest, most kick butt instructor! I’m so happy to have found this place! More...
A couple of friends and I went for hot yoga the class, instructor, and lemon grass towel (hahah) was awesome. The only down side was they number the spots so we were all split up around the room. Another thing the front desk people were not very friendly at all it almost seemed like you were inconvencing them by asking questions or even just trying to pay for your class. More...
Montrelle Henry is an awesome instructor.
April is the best instructor at Warrior 1. I have taken her classes for years and moved out of town a few years back and drive in every Sunday to take her core and hiit classes. I highly recommend her classes to all my friends. Always guaranteed a kick butt workout and April provides great modifications for all levels is fitness. She goes above and beyond for her yogis! More...
Hot yoga core is the best! Hydrate and be prepared to sweat like never before!
It's sad that it took these guys getting attacked by their neighbors for me to remember to review them. Sorry, yogis!!! Warrior 1, no exaggeration, changed my life. My mind is at peace and my body is strong. If you are scared of the heat, don't be. If I can do it, you can too! More...
Jennifer Marie Edwards
Amazing studio! The instructors are fantastic. You will walk out feeling refreshed, relaxed, and have energy you didn't think you could have. I love it!
I love Warrior 1! At first I was just going strictly for the yoga classes because I would do my other things at the gym. I tried out some of the other classes and fell in love with them. I love doing the 25 minute spin class followed by the BUTI yoga or hot flow class. The restore classes are also amazing when you need some recovery. I love the atmosphere and heated room. The workouts are so much fun and I've gotten better results doing these classes than when I was lifting weights at the gym plus this is so much more fun that I hardly ever go to the gym anymore. All the instructors are awesome, but Dana and Kelsi are my favorite! More...
It is great and inviting.
First time doing yoga and I'm hooked. The staff was great!
I took the beginners hot yoga class and I felt relaxed during the session and after. It was my first time attending this class, but I enjoyed it very much! If you’re looking for a low intensity class where you can simply focus on your body and your breath, I’d highly recommend taking this class! More...
Many hot yoga classes and other classes too. Friendly staff and teachers. Very fun atmosphere
I travel full time for a living and get to explore many different yoga centers and instructors. I caught a beginner hot yoga class with Rochelle Pate and received a great workout / sweat with a very nice flow of poses. It's a pretty small center / room, but has a great family vibe to it :) More...
Amazing place... it meets you where you are in your fitness level. Two years ago after surgery and other life events I gave up on exercise and healthy eating. I was feeling terrible and had gained a lot of weight. I walked into the studio intimidated by exercise. Lindsay encouraged me to give it a try and after a month I was feeling better. After 3 months I had the stamina I needed for a 17 day trip to Uganda.I also lost 25 lbs with a combination of yoga and better eating.Rochelle is great for building strength and balanceApril works you very hard.Wendy will have you dripping sweatKelsi is great at teaching form and is so encouraging. More...
Awesome Instructors and spin classes!!
Emm Elle Gee
We love love love Shanna, she always makes us feel welcomed and comfortable, she takes us as we are❤️❤️❤️
I moved to Bakersfield a little over 3 years ago , fell into a sort of sadness for the first 3 months and then I discovered Warrior 1 Yoga and found myself . I woke up in downward dog in Bakersfield , ca . Warrior 1 is more than a yoga studio it's a place to connect , grow , expand , and evolve . I'm so grateful this place exists ! More...
Hot yoga classes with Yana are the best.
it's a great place for hot yoga
I recently moved to town and was looking for a spin class.. I was not disappointed! The instructor was great at keeping everyone motivated and moving!

I was in a gym rut and looking to get out of it. Susan's classes are the perfect antidote.
Made Ayu Arina S.
I've been doing yoga in Warrior 1 Yoga for more than 3 years. I go there almost everyday. I love all the classes, especially Ashtanga, Hot Flow, and Hot Pilates. All teachers are amazing... they're all very professional and are very helpful and supportive. More...
I love ALL the classes offered. The barre and butt lift class was amazing!!!
This place is so amazing and relaxing. I come on Saturdays with my friend to the breast cancer survivor rejuvenation class (I'm just a supporter not a survivor) and it's truly magical. It's not only instructed by one of the most sweet, caring woman in this town. But it's also free to all that come and need a little relaxation and mind wellness support. These woman that show up and put there story's and encouragement out there are the strongest and most caring woman you'll meet in this town. It's such an honor just getting to meet them and see the support they bring. My heart explodes after ever visit. More...
I'm so glad my friend asked me to attend a hot yoga class with her at the Stockdale location, I love it here. I've been wanting to try something new as a workout alternative since I've been battling shin splints and I'm happy that I tried Hot Yoga our. My instructor was April for my hot yoga class and she was a great instructor. She planned great exercises that were coordinated with music that kept me going. They do have discounts for their various workout packages. Various amounts discounted and they also offer some of the packages that do no require a contact. The Hot Yoga class I attended was $8. They are the $8 classes every Sunday listed. You are able to see and purchase the class/ products packages, and even sign up for individual classes, through the app for Warrior 1. I was impressed with the clean facilities and great merchandise they provide there. Also the refreshing cold towel scented with lemongrass. I will be a repeat client! More...
Kelsi's flow classes r a workout!!! My favorite!!!I dont use flow for stretching or balance stuff... i want to substitute a workout w a flow class... and this does that!:)
Kelsi's flow classes r a legit workout!!!! A ton of flow!!!! Sweat!!!! And amazing kelsi spirit! Challenging.....and def do-able!!!
I love this studio!! If your looking to get even better at your yoga practice or start learning Kelsi Wilson and Yana T are excellent instructors!!! Sign up for their classes!!
Kelsi will lift your spirits and get you in shape!!! No matter what level you are she will make you feel comfortable!! All levels take her classes!!! Sign up for her classes you won't be disappointed!! More...
It's so nice to have such a variety at a yoga studio. I love buti yoga and it's been a while since if been to ashtanga classes so focused on teaching advanced poses. I noticed how healthy the hot room made me feel and before I knew it, I lost 50 pounds. I got my summer body is wanted for 10 years! More...
Penny Farmer Okland
I first started with the hot yoga, and I have been hooked. I now have a membership, the classes that I've been to have been outstanding. I feel so much better. Thank you Warrior 1 More...
I did my first class at this location yesterday for restorative yoga. Loved the instructor Rochelle was awesome. I go to stockdale location but wish they had more classes here.
Visiting family and needed a place to workout without a membership, this place was great and Kelsi is a awesome instructor! Will be going back for sure!
Thank you so much, Dana!!! Dana, the owner is a hyper athlete and she believed in me when I did. I was at wits end trying to lose weight for over 10 years. Anyhow I did her hair analysis tests, lipolight, hot yoga and buti. I went ahead and made it part of my routine. It took three weeks to see a change and when I did the pounds just started dropping. Thanks for making the impossible possible Dana and believing in me! More...
Stacy Tesar Hayden
I’ve been going to hot barre and restorative yoga classes for about two months now and I am hooked! I feel so strong and have already noticed a difference in my body. The studio is always clean and the staff is amazing. If you haven’t tried Warrior1Yoga, do it. You won’t regret it � More...
I’ve been coming here for about 8 months, now consistently (3 times a week) for 2 months. The instructors are all amazing, encouraging and motivating. I’ve had a really hard time losing baby weight, gaining back core strength from having c-section, and dealing with extreme back pain due to scoliosis. I’ve had very minimal back pain since I’ve been consistent, am toning up amazingly, getting much stronger all over, and just feel better and sleep better than ever!! Thank you Warrior 1 for helping me get my mom bod back in shape! More...
I have been going to this place for 3 weeks now and I really like the facility and all the instructors. They all have their unique style and great personality, which makes it less boring and much more interesting each time. Love the cool lemongrass towel and a popsicle at the end. It reminds me of my time in Thailand! However, I do wish for one improvement. I am new to yoga. Only practiced Bikram in the past. I wish for the instructors to be a bit more descriptive and provide correction in postures as we practice. Often times, I am just not sure if I am doing it correctly, and which part of the body should feel the stretch or tension. Some instructors are better at that than others. Other than that, I really like the vibe and I can't imagine going anywhere else! More...
Just try a combination of lipolight and daily hot buti and sculpt yoga daily. I promise you'll see an intense transformation. The teachers here are fantastic!
I am a regular member at another HIIT type gym and have never tried Yoga before. All my co-workers said I had to try Hot Yoga. I had finally tried out a free week at Warrior 1 Yoga and had no clue what I was doing. The instructors were amazing and fantastic and I absolutely loved my free week there that I signed up for even more classes. It is almost a treat to go workout at Yoga and I look forward to going every time. If you are a male and you have always thought of yoga as a “female” thing I challenge you to try it out it will kick your butt! More...
Linda E Martinez
Awesome!! I love it!! I sweat my butt off!
Olivia Catherine Armagost
Really enjoying the classes and teachers. Happy to have found someplace where I feel comfortable and am getting good results. My daughter has joined me and loves it also. More...
After hot yoga at warrior 1 nothing else will ever be the same. I absolutely, love this place. All the instructors are great, but Dana is absolutely knowledgeable and her classes are so entertaining. She gives each student the attention needed to make each of us feel important. More...
I have to say that I have fallen in love with Shanna's Buti classes. They're fun, energetic, and the music is ALWAYS on point! I wish there were more during the week for me to go to! I love her 630 evening classes, her personality is so welcoming and friendly that you cant help but feel good while you're in her class. More...
I love warrior 1, I have been a member for almost 8 months now and love the classes and instructors. Kelsi, April, Yana, and Shanna are incredible. I took Shannas Buti flow for the first time today and I fell in love!! I have never felt so good and energized and relaxed all at the same time. Shanna’s energy and personality is so inviting and makes you feel at home and comfortable with yourself and the ones around you. Her class was so much fun I would love to see more of her Buti flow classes throughout the week. I will deff be telling everyone about this class! More...
I came here for a spin class with Angelica and I loved it. I've done some spin classes before but this is definitely the best one in Bakersfield. It was pretty easy to book a class using the MINDBODY app. The place itself is very clean and organized. They have some cute items for sale up front and the decor is also nice. After the spin class was done we were provided with some lemon scented towels which were refreshing after an intense workout. I'll definitely be back for more! More...
Warrior 1 has exceeded my expectations of a yoga studio! There is such a variety of classes to switch things up and it’s great for all levels! All of the instructors are very knowledgeable and friendly! Overall an INCREDIBLE place! � More...
I love love love!!! The new location on stockdale is perfect! And the butt lift class is my favorite Lindsay crane is an awesome instructor!!!!
Kelsi Wilson makes you love coming back each day. She is extremely knowledgeable and her fun loving personality is contagious. Her cueing is spot on and she always challenges you to be your best you! While making sure you are doing correct form. Love her all classes! The best yoga instructor ever. More...
Great place to do yoga! Instructors are knowledgeable with the different poses and offer alternate poses for beginners and for those with medical surgeries.
I tried the Stockdale location and fell in love with the Yoga classes and spin classes!!!! I can already see my body's transformation
Hands down the best full body workout in the area. I've been a member for 2 months now and the changes I can see in my body and feel in my overall well being are unbelievable. 2 jean sizes and over 15 pounds. Spin, barre, piyo, yoga, etc. All of the bases are covered to ensure you have the ability to effectively train each muscle group while you develop your "inner yogi". The heat can be intimidating at first but believe me if I can adapt and love it anyone can. All of the instructors are great and each brings something unique to the table. Specifically, April Morphis does an amazing job encouraging those in her class to push themselves beyond their comfort zone. The results I have personally achieved are due to her training and guidance. I can not recommend Warrior 1 enough. More...
Love the variety of classes. Instructors are friendly and helpful.
Spectacular group of people; members and employees. What an amazingly warm, and friendly, motivating culture at Warrior 1! With Cycle, Barre, a private gym and a whole array of hot and cool yoga classes, there is ALWAYS room to get in where you fit in. More...
I love it! Kelsi is an awesome yogi. I will definitely go back.
I love this place! Atmosphere is awesome and very clean. Instructors really know what they are doing.
I’ve loved all of the cycling classes I’ve attended so far! The instructors are awesome! Find something you love and you’ll stick to it..
Ellen is very demanding instructor for Hot Yoga;she pushes you to your limits ( and more ), and seems to bring out the best in your asana's. As a yogi I highly recommend these yoga studio's to train in. More...
This is the best well rounded studio I've been to. I tried out lipolight with hot yoga as a combination every day. I had no idea how much my body shape was changing until a week later when I could see it in my clothes. I was shocked at how well it worked and am completely addicted to this. The hot yoga is hard to get used to at first, I thought it was a bit nuts....but as I started to sweat it out more, I could really feel the effects in my body flexibility and my body just detoxing. I highly recommend this for holistic health. Try her hair follicle test too. Thank you so much Dana and Warrior 1 Yoga Spa for helping me with my my life transformation :) More...
I first started in November at the original location. I quickly fell in LOVE with Warrior 1. The atmosphere and instructors are welcoming and encouraging. They feel like your friends who really care about you. The classes are tough do not get me wrong but so worth it. Now that they have opened up a second location with spin, it is even more amazing. I find myself taking at least 6-7 classes a week. I drive all the way from downtown Bakersfield to go to this studio! Give it a try, you will LOVE IT. More...
I have taken 3 classes so far at Warrior 1 and so far I love it!I signed up for a class with a friend since she has gone before. I only had to download the app and set up an account, it was super easy to do. I signed the waiver on there and boom I was in!When I arrived at the facility I was greeted by the very nice receptionist, who also teaches classes, then signed in the check in book. She checked me in on the computer as well, then I was free to store my things and go on in.My very first class was hot flow by Kelsi. The class was an hour and we had spots right under the hot lamps. This class I sweated so much! I almost went out for a breather, but she turned on the fans and I was good! The classes end with a nice cold towel and a cool down period. The class was an intermediate class with beginners welcomed. I would recommend a true beginner's class if you are a first timer. My other classes I took Hot core that was taut by April. I absolutely LOVED this class. I recommend everyone take it. 45 minutes but it kicks your core's butt! I feel like I got a complete workout with just this one class. We used a block and a weight for this class too. April was very nice and encouraged people to use modifications if needed. I will be coming to this class every Sunday.So the prices differ depending on what you want. I am currently making sure I want to commit to a membership by going to the Sunday classes. All classes Sunday are only $8 bucks! I also believe there is something you can speak with the receptionist about if you purchase classes and use the credits as you go, might be discounted since you purchase them up front. I will look into it more and update my review. The facility is located behind sonic on Allen and Stockdale. They have clean restrooms and a locker area to store your personal belongings. I have left my jacket and shoes by the benches with no problems. I have seen some people bring their phones into the hot room, but I would rather leave in my car or in a locker. Love it here, will be coming back for sure! More...
Vanessa De La Rosa
iome you wilf you go regularly and take care of your diet at h
All of the instructors are knowledgeable and caring and just want you to get the most out of it. And if ur unable to do a pose do to an injury or being a beginner they are more than happy to show you modifications. Love the staff!
Awesome classes. Super welcoming and friendly ♀️
Fantastic addition to the already awesome warrior one studios. Spin is a great addition along with all the extra class times:) the bikes are top of the line and even have an app you can download on your phone to keep track of your progress! The easy check in system through their original app lets u easily sign up for classes. Great addition to Bakersfield!!! More...
This place is fantastic. Excellent instructors and great energy. Highly recommended
I looked forward to yoga! I’ve never get that way about the gym. I have to give a huge shout out to Kelsi Wilson. She was the instructor at the second class I ever attended. This woman’s love just pours out of her. You can feel her amazing energy (unicorn & rainbow kind of stuff) as soon as she touches you. Don’t worry she won’t touch you if you don’t like that sort of thing. I look for her classes on the schedule and you should too!! Dana the owner is an amazing soul too! More...
As a guy, I was very sketchy on doing hot yoga but after some classes, i got to admit, it was AWESOME! You feel so fresh and more relaxed just after one class. Plus you burn a bunch of calories. I can't wait to go back soon! More...
Love all the ladies at Warrior1Yoga !!!!! Feels like family so excited only been taking classes for a couple of months and can already see a huge transformation !!! Thanks you ladies for whipping me into shape More...
Amazing!!!! Great for beginners or advanced! Improve your mind, body, and soul today! Its not easy but it's 100% worth it!!!
I am new to yoga and all of the instructors have been great at explaining each pose and are very motivating and inspiring! I am so glad I discovered warrior 1 yoga! More...
Lori De Marco
The $8 price on Sunday is a huge bargain. I’m a Personal Trainer and a Level 1 YogaFit Instructor but rarely get to do hot yoga. I’m newish to Bakersfield and this was my first chance to try this studio. Loved it! Will be back every chance I get. More...
I’ve gone every Sunday for a month and have been amazed with my flexibility improvement. All the instructors are amazing.
Margot Botello Shinn
Rochelle made learning yoga fun, and non-threatening. I was a tad apprehensive due to being so out of shape, and still recovering from a broken leg. Rochelle is patient, and non-judgmental and showed me how to modify the poses for my fitness level. I will be back, and I will bring friends! More...
All the instructors are really nice, knowledgeable and down to earth. Their classes are amazing and I've had nothing but good experiences. The best part is it doesn't matter what level you are in yoga, you can walk into any class and they work with you, no judgments. More...
I love this studio! Awesome teachers, and classes. By far the cleanest yoga studio I have ever been in.
Amazing place! I've never done yoga before in my life and I wanted to challenge myself and get out of comfort zone and all the instructores and staff members are always happy and joyful with a contagious positive attitude. This studio is more than just yoga, it promotes a healthy and positive mindset for your life. I love this place although it is a bit expensive (for me). More...
Ahhhh... I had the greatest time � What a workout!!! Shanna was the best and I had a blast with BUTI Yoga!!! Can't wait to do it again!
Absolutely love this place, never been so motivated to work out, so far I've lost 16 pounds in a matter of 7 weeks! Everyone at the studio is so welcoming, & encourages you to work harder and keep going! I would definitely recommend taking Kelsi's class she so sweet and really makes her classes so enjoyable all around good instructor she knows exactly how to motivate u! And really makes you feel good about yourself true sweet heart ! All the instructors bring some different to the matt , all classes are great some of my favs definitely Kelsi, Nilay, Dana, April Love this place !!! More...
Great vibe, awesome workouts! The instructors are knowledgeable and keep things fresh and exciting.
Made Ayu Arina Satiani
I've been doing yoga in Warrior 1 Yoga for about 2.5 years. I go there almost everyday. I love all the classes, especially Ashtanga, Hot Flow, and Hot Pilates. All teachers are amazing... they're all very professional and are very helpful and supportive. More...
Took Ms. Rogers class today and I loved it!! The time just passed so quickly, I was not ready to leave. Wish I could start every morning with her!!
Came on a whim because I was dragged by a friend. I have never done yoga besides on the wii and to my surprise, I absolutely loved it. I normally run at the gym, but I don't sweat nearly as much doing that as I do with HOT YOGA. It's fun and different from the run of the mill gym workouts plus it's super relaxing and calming afterwards. Took a hot flow class with KELSIE and she was great at helping with forms without singling out any individuals. She was super friendly and upbeat and would recommend her class to anyone. The following week, however, I took a class with Ellen and she was completely RUDE and offputting. From the beginning she was already negative. She started by saying she had no tolerance for cell phones and if we start together we must finish together and it's rude to leave before class ends. And lastly she said if you need to use the restroom use it before class because it's disruptive and rude to use it in the middle of class. First off, people are on-call or have kids and emergencies come up, if i want to yoga with my damn phone I will or if I need to leave because I've had enough - I will and lastly hello lady, what would be disruptive and rude is if I pissed all over the floor so if I need to use the restroom- I will . She also mentioned something about Bakersfield not being up to par as other big cities (almost like a dis to bako, then why are you here?) During the class she kept mentioning things like, "have the courage to leave a job your hate, a bad partner......" Why not just say leave all the negativity outside? And as she ends the class instead of handing you a cold towel, she throws it on the floor besides you and I kid you not her last words for the class were "IF YOU HAVE ANY COMPLAINTS TAKE IT UP WITH THE OWNER." I get you want structure, but shit. Be polite about it. Will never take a class with her again. I'll be honest, if she had been my first instructor I don't think I would have been back. I took this class with a handful of friends and they all agree she's got a bad attitude and not fit for yoga. Anywho, I'll update my reviews as I take more classes with different instructors. More...
This is my first time ever experiencing yoga. I've done 3 classes in the last 3 days! I love that they offer multiple purposed classes! Taking the butt lift one next! I can see myself getting hooked!! More...
Dana and her team are wonderful! I've taken classes with most of the instructors and, while they're all different, they are all challenging in a great way! Sometimes you feel like screaming in the middle of class lol but EVERY time you feel proud for finishing! I'm obsessed and have told anyone that would listen about this studio and hot yoga! If you haven't yet, give it a try! And check their Yelp page for a way to get your first class free! More...
I've taken the beginner class twice with Kelsi Wilson and it is AMAZING! She is so kind and gentle with her instructions. She makes everyone in the room feel comfortable w their own ability. She is very good about reminders for water, breathing, and intention. If you are new to yoga the Hot Yoga is tough but she walks you thru each pose very carefully. Her pace is ALSO great for people who have been doing yoga for quite some time. I am also impress with Warrior 1 Yoga's facility. It is small but VERY clean and efficient. They sell some great accessories and clothing as well. More...
Absolute love Warrior 1 the classes are amazing and the instructor's are as well. I love Yani, Dana & Kelsi's classes. You feel amazing once you done an hour workout. I am hooked!!
If you asked me to review this place DURING a class, I'd probably say I hated it only because I was truly feeling the burn! ;) In all seriousness, this place is one of a kind in Bakersfield and everyone should take classes here! I believe it's the ONLY place that offers Hot Yoga and they are sooooo good at it!! Every instructor I've taken a class with has been great and I've taken classes with probably 5 or 6 different ones by now! They are all different (some more zen, some more cardio, some more form-based), but they are all very good! Difficulty also ranges based on the class you take so read the class description to see if it's better for beginners or more experienced yogis. Where can you see the class descriptions? On their app of course! It's super easy to book a class through the app. If you happen to catch a groupon deal (check often, although you can't use it unless you haven't been to a class in the last three months...) you can apply your class credits to your account on the app and use them that way. Super easy and convenient. The heat is killer and helps get your heart pumping basically as soon as you walk in. The instructors are always giving tips for proper form as they flow from pose to pose and they're very encouraging too. The owner, Dana, is the absolute sweetest and her classes are always fun! Cheers to Dana for bringing this place to town! Like I said, it's the only hot yoga studio in town, therefore some classes fill up quickly so get there early to get a good spot! The studio has ankle weights available as well as mats and yoga blocks if you need them. Classes always end with a cold, wet towel scented with lemongrass essential oils which is so refreshing. If you're lucky, you're even given an otter pop to rehydrate a bit! :D Awesome, right?! I'm obsessed with hot yoga now and highly recommend taking classes here! They have memberships available which allow for unlimited class access that give a slight discount on the per-class rate and Sunday's have $8 classes! Also, check the pictures here on Yelp for a text code to get your first class free! Woohoo! Honestly, the classes are hell during lol but it feels soooo good when you're done! Just like any good workout should be, I guess! See you there next class ! :D More...
I love this place. I wasn't sure how it was going to be since it's hot yoga but after trying it out I ended up loving it. Very relaxed, and love the yoga instructors.
After years of various fitness pursuits, hot yoga has renewed my spirit and love for fitness. Yoga has helped me to redefine what healthy means; mind, body, and spirit. I have hot yoga to thank for that. More...
I have been with Warrior 1 Yoga since they opened! So I guess you could say I'm hooked �� I went from kickboxing for many years to hot yoga. I have since then changed my body as well as my mind set. Correcting my spine as well as healing injuries from the past I cannot say enough about what Warrior 1 yoga has done for me!! Thank you Dana Healey and for bringing Warrior 1 Yoga to Bakersfield There is such a variety of instructors.. scheduled classes as everybody is at their own levels. Hot yoga is not something you conquer it's a journey and every day is different More...
Ellen is by far the most amazing instructor I've encountered. So physical but more importantly focused on the mental and spiritual atunement we all seek. Yani is amazing too! One of the only Kundalini instructors in the area who actually practices and lives it. Such an old soul in her teaching and practice. We need more instructors like these women for sure � More...
Jennifer Beals Haines
Yani and Kelsi have changed my life! Kelsi keeps me coming back daily, her enthusiasm is contagious! Her classes push and challenge you, they are AWESOME. She makes you want to work harder! Yani is just a gift. I look forward to her Friday class all week. It's my new happy place. I have heard people asking for more classes from her, I would love that! Thank you Dana for having such an amazing staff! You guys really have changed my whole world!!� More...
I LOVE LOVE everything about Warrior1yoga!! From a library of classes to the motivation and inspiration that surrounds you!Kelsi is simply amazing!! When I think of her classes I think " lift the spirits, lose the flab". I love the intensity of her BUTI classes and I even love her "flow" classes! She makes it fun by working out with you and is always paying attention. She also has a very good knowledge of body mechanics and encourages proper form for best results!There are times when I leave the gym and want to go straight home but never when Kelsi teaches! It's gym then yoga! More...
Best studio in Bakersfield! Lots of various Yoga styles but most are hot and amazing! Highly recommend Kelsies classes along with Dana, DK And April all will kick your booty!
Great class the heat is a little hard on me but I managed. Loved the class and instructor.
My friends introduced me to hot yoga in November 2016 and I'm hooked! I love Deekay's beginners class and she felt us welcome if you're just a beginner. Her classes are always booked for weeks! More...
We had an awesome Hot Yoga class given by instructor Cate. She was very attentive to her class. We are traveling and needed this. We were welcomed warmly both upon inquiry and at the class time. We appreciate such a lovely studio and atmosphere with great Customer Service! We will surely be back one day. More...
Love Yani's warm restore class it's such a great class to relieve stress and anxiety!!!!
AH-MAZING BUTI class!! You ever wanna feel sexy, sultry, soulful and strong this is the class to take and the studio to take it!! Such a beautiful experience!!
This is not your traditional yoga studio, They play very upbeat music for classes like "Buti Yoga" -Yes that's right, they have a variety of "Buti" classes offered. Although it's unusual, it's a great cardio work out and it's helping strengthen my body. The sound system isn't always great but I think they are working on it. The popular classes are super packed -I would advice to not pack the classes like sardines. It's uncomfortable.For traditional yoga I would highly recommend Promita's class. She focuses on the spiritual side of the yoga practice which I truly appreciate. I go to her Friday classes and I always leave with the feeling of gratitude and purpose. The stretches are also amazing for someone like me that is working on a computer all day. More...

Warrior one yoga is a great place to enjoy a great workout!!!!! The instructors are amazing!!!!!they are very helpful in their instructions!!!!�
Warrior 1 Instructor Ellen Cruz brings a balance of strength and grace to her classes! She encourages her students to practice with a determined effort and challenge themselves. This type of discipline cultivates clarity of intention and commitment to the practice. I appreciate her style of instruction and verbal ques on how to make adjustments to your personal practice for proper alignment and maximum benefit. I always leave her class feeling strong and balanced physically and mentally! Thank you Ellen Cruz! More...
This is much cheaper then therapy and you can use it as an excuse to buy cute yoga clothes. I'd come here every day if I had the time.

Warrior 1 yoga offers an experience like no other in Bakersfield. I decided to adopt yoga as a daily practice 1/1/2014. I am half way through a yoga teacher training. Even with this experience, hot yoga seemed very intimidating. I took the beginners hot yoga with Deekay. I can't stress how much I love the atmosphere at Warrior 1. The room was heated, even the floor warm, but not unbearable (this is hot yoga after all). The room was dimly lit, but accent lighting along the base of the walls made for a very relaxing atmosphere despite the discomfort you may initially feel from the heat. Deekay led a great practice. She is very encouraging and kind. She made you happy to be in a room full of people at 100+ degrees practicing yoga. I found hot yoga to be a slow and deliberate practice with lots of time for rest and breathing. Deekay made sure to stop for water breaks through out, and in savasana you get a refreshing lemon grass cloth dripping with cool water. I had a chance to speak with the owner, Dana. She is very kind and knowledgable. I will be taking a class with her when I can make it. I'm looking forward to continuing my hot practice with Warrior 1! More...

Absolute life changing for your physic and health
First time ever trying yoga and I try them out for the week promo, and all I have to say is that they are so friendly and helpful here. The yoga was much harder than I expected, but I feel sooo much better after a class. More...
If you are looking for a place to work on yourself, find acceptance, and find calm, Warrior I is a great place to try out. The owner, who instructs classes, her yoga instructors, and staff are welcoming and understanding. The students, or yogis, understand the process and welcome everyone. No judgements, it is your journey.Dana Healey, the owner, does a fantastic Astana class, you have to try. She'll help you believe. More...
A year ago today I took my first yoga class. I decided to take yoga because I found myself in of place of hurt, disappointment, anger, fear and asking myself, “why us?”. I needed to find a sense of calm, inner strength, balance, and the courage to face the challenges I (we) were given head on. A year later and 215 classes under my belt, I have started to find most of those virtues, but most importantly, I have given myself permission to take care of me. It’s amazing what you can do when you find self-awareness. I never in a million years thought I’d come to love the “practice” of yoga. I’m not the most graceful student in class nor I can I take a pose to its fullest expression, but that’s why it’s called “practice”. Each time I practice I get better. Every time I want to get out of a pose, I realize I’m doing it right. I don’t think I’m better at yoga today than I was a year ago, but I’m definitely stronger. I have a long way to go before I will consider myself a yogi, but I’ll get there. Thank you to Warrior I Yoga, the amazing instructors, my fellow students, and staff because you challenge me at every class. -Namaste More...
Totally addicted to this place! Love Breanne, Deekay, and Rachel. Girls are so personable. And if it gets too hot, don't be afraid to leave and cool off a bit. I've heard of judgmental places, but haven't gotten this vibe from these girls. More...
Awesome!!! I am new to town and they welcomed me and Dana taught a great class. Thank you
Such an amazing workout and a great team of yogis there to make you sweat!
So glad there is a true hot yoga studio in Bakersfield. Every class is amazing. I walk out of class feeling invigorated.Love love love Warrior 1 yoga!!
Great workout! Loved the studio and the instructors are all so friendly and helpful. There is a variety of classes to choose from at all hours. Highly recommend you show up early and bring water and towel because you are going to sweat! More...
Love the Butt Sculpt class!!! Even the beginner class is good for stretching muscles. I appreciate that every Tuesday is free for military veterans. This establishment is professional, clean and great therepy for my neck/upper back discomfort. Thank you, Warrior 1! More...
Was great in the beginning. Unfortunately now the classes are over booked and because of this poses are compromised. They offer a monthly membership for $99.00 with unlimited classes that can save money for those who regularly attend. My hope is to see the new place open so it can accommodate everyone. There really isn't a better place to go for Yoga. More...
Easily the best yoga studio in Bakersfield! The morning Ashtanga classes are excellent!
There are very few places in Bakersfield where a suburban mother, a powerlifting cholo, and a rickety teenager can share the same space in peace.The general public's perception of yoga is that it's a bunch of religiously inspired movements and positions that mimic that of a contortionist. This couldn't be farther from the truth. At the most basic level, yoga is static positions and motions that promote circulation and improve flexibility and posture. Athletes enjoy it because it's a great way to actively stretch when your muscles. Truthfully, I am unsure about the detoxifying effects of the infrared technology. Regardless, the use of heat does help with sore muscles and stretch them.Pricing is reasonable with $15 per a class and packages for unlimited classes starting at 99$ (however, I'm told this is a special, limited time offer). On Sundays there is a $5 beginners class that you will give a taste of what to expect. It's usually crowded but don't let that you scare you - give this place a try. More...
The studio, personnel, and environment are amazing. Nothing but positive vibes. Worth the early am commute from Delano. Oh, and the cleanliness is a plus!!! Hooked!!! Thank you, Warrior 1!
Just moved to the area and was seeking a yoga studio in town. I'm a fan of hot yoga so choosing this place was a no brainer. I love how they offer a variety of different classes that are all done in a hot yoga studio. I love the energy of the studio. The teachers are exceptionally nice and the studio is super clean. More...
This place is my new obsession. I don't even know where to start - but it's 5 stars on every level.Location - FINALLY...a yoga studio on my side of town. Nice business center. Seems like everything else was always downtown and that drive for me is YUCK. The inside of this studio is also great. Really friendly staff (sometimes I feel a snobby or stuck up vibe from yogis like it's some elite club or something) and the check in process is so easy. The room is clean, scented like lemongrass...the floor is amazing, it's dimly lit, decorated nicely. I could go on and on.Staff/Instructors - I have not had a bad class here or one that did not challenge me. I cannot stress enough that sometimes yoga classes can seem intimidating or cliqueish to outsiders who aren't doing yoga regularly. I have always been a lover of yoga, but stopped due to location, schedule conflicts, and this feeling of snobbery I disdain. Warrior 1 is VERY come as you are, no judgement, do what is best for you and your body, and is probably my favorite part about what sets this stuidio apart from all other yoga studios. That being said, whether you are a beginner or have done yoga for quite some time, you will WORK and be challenged and YOU WILL SWEAT. Glorious, copious amounts of sweat. Like a whore in church.Also other things that really set this studio apart from the pack:They have an iphone app. WHATTTTT. How cool and easy to see the schedule, sign up for a class, pay - even set alerts on your phone or get push notifications if something changes. Schedule - HELLO early morning classes! Sunday Classes! Late evening classes! This is a working single mom's DREAM come true! I can finally hit up a yoga class or two during the week and STILL have time to make it to work. Thank you baby jesus of yogaheaven.Also, they have clean mats available, require you to wipe down your feet before you enter - give you AMAZING lemongrass scented COLD towels after a hot sweaty yoga sesh. They have hand weights, blocks - everything you could possibly need is provided.Anyways, from your typical gym rat and weight lifter, who has always been a fan of yoga (just not the snobby vibe of it) - I REALLY like this place. So far I have gotten about 5 of my friends as equally obsessed with this place as well. I'm like the unpaid spokesperson of Warrior 1 Yoga.Andddd I need yoga right now cuz I got really excited writing this review and need to calm down.... More...
Awesome, never done anything so hard in my life highly recommend.
Very challenging and relaxing for guys and girls. Pushes you to the limits in a lot of ways you can't get out of any other workouts. And when it's over you're soaked and feel great! The hot flow intermediate classes are the best even if you're a beginners. Monique is the best instructor they have by far!! A lot of experience and very helpful and focused instructor. Very affordable and love how you have the freedom to pay per class that way you're not locked in to any contracts. Great for a quick detox too if you're feeling low on energy or have a lax vacation diet. Highly recommend warrior one! More...
An excellent studio where many styles of yoga is taught in a very clean and refreshing environment. Finally a holistic vision of yoga studio is in Bakersfield.
Dana - I just wanted to drop you a quick note...I've been to 3 classes now (Hot Yoga for Beginners, 90 minute flow, and Yoga Core) and I have to say that I am positively HOOKED! Not only are the instructors great at the instruction of yoga, but they are so inspiring and uplifting! I even got emotional after one class, because I was so in-tuned with my body and emotions that it was beyond my control to release some tears!I just want to thank you, thank you for opening the shop and for the amazing people you bring in to teach the art of yoga. I am learning more about myself (both physically and emotionally) then I ever thought I would doing something that was centered around health and fitness.P.S. Those little cold towels infused with essential oils are the BEST endings to the classes - you can't imagine how much I look forward to it! More...
First time yoga! Really enjoyed it thanks!! I'll be back for more!!
Nice and clean studio with a variety of yoga classes. All the instructors give detailed explanation of the yoga poses and give options for the beginner to advanced. The heat adds another element for a challenge but also helps with your flexibility. I really enjoy Promita, Dana, Erica, Deekay and Whitneys classes. All the instructors have a different style so it is fun to try them all. I haven't tried some of the instructors but have heard positive feedback for them all. More...
I see my self in this video doing quite a few tabletops. This was one of the coolest classes I've ever attended, and the most challenging! I've had chronic neck and back pain for over 25 years. I would pop ibuprofen like tic tacs. For the last 2 years the range of motion to my right shoulder has been dramatically decreased. It was very difficult to even cross my arm in front of me and only happened with severe pain. I started doing hot yoga at this studio 1 June. Since then I have taken ZERO ibuprofen and the range of motion to my right shoulder is about the same as my left. I am able to stand up straight with no pain. I feel more confident and am not afraid of moving. It has really changed my life. It's challenging, difficult, and at times overwhelming to finish the classes but I do it. I've been going 3-5 times each week. I am so thankful for the support I've found here with the instructors. It's my safe haven. Thank you Monique Rogers Yoga and Dana Healey for the love, support and guidance you so unselfishly give. I love you! You ROCK! More...
I never use to exercise much but hot yoga literally changed my life.. IT IS BEYOND AMAZING!! The staff here are extremely nice, and the studio is extremely inviting! I've been to three different teachers. Dana's classes (the absolute sculpt and butt class) KICK YOUR BUTT, BUT you feel amazing afterwards. Promita is my most favorite teacher. She really focuses on the body, mind and spirit when she instructs you. Her class is tough (you sweat LOADS) but it doesn't kill you. I've also done hot flow with Monique. WARNING THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT BUT REWARDING CLASS. You never stop moving (except when doing child's pose and a few stretches in the beginning and end)! It kicks your butt, but like Dana's class, you feel amazing afterwards. This studio has definitely converted me into a yogee... I love it! I would definitely recommend it (in fact, I recommended it to my sister and two best friends.. Both of which loved it too)!! More...
Loved it! Went for the first time this morning. I definitely will be back & hopefully will not spend as much time in child's pose.
I've never done Yoga before so I was not only skeptical but scared I wouldn't be able to do it. My husband and I both went to the beginners class and we LOVED it! We're hooked, we now look forward to Tues & Thurs nights and we have a fun healthy hobby we enjoy together. More...
Having no background in any yoga what so ever, I was gearing up for such a high level of expectation that I probably had to fulfill. Not at all. There was no pressure of feeling obligated at holding a certain pose, a certain way, or even staying inside the room the entire session. I liked that since I'm no where near as limber or flexible as I once was. The class was catered to beginners, and the pace was perfect. Although I did not do as well as I had desired, I got the end result of sweating a lot, which is really hard for me make happen, unless I'm doing a raw workout such as Brazillian Jiu Jitsu. I left the class feeling great, and look forward to doing in again. More...
I am also a yoga beginner. I have taken 2 classes at Warrior one and I really like it. The instructors are awesome and make you feel comfortable as a beginner or someone with experience needing challenged. The staff have all been so kind and helpful. More...
Fantastic time at yoga one!! Great location, excellent staff, and the class had me sweating big time!! I have both shoulder/back issues and I just felt so great after my hot yoga session. I was really impressed by warrior one and will be returning for sure!!! More...
The extreme heat is soon forgotten after a couple of poses. The staff is so friendly as are the instructors. Great location.
Great Hot Yoga! I've attended other "Hot" Yoga classes in town but found them to be more "warm" than "Hot". This place will truly make you sweat! The instructors are very good. The owner, Dana, is an inspiration. We've needed a good yoga studio on this side of town and I am so thankful that she opened Warrior 1 at this location. More...
Very relaxing, low key no pressure class! It was my first class and I was made to feel right at home! Warrior 1 Yoga is where it's at!! If you've never been go the only have things to gain!!! More...
Had my first class today, after falling in love with yoga at body xchange.. I'm excited for this adventure. The studio is very clean, the instructor was extremely helpful, especially for me being new! The ice towels at the end is the best! Can't wait for tomorrow! More...
I've done yoga before but not at 100 degrees. My first class was the beginner class which was 1 hour long. It was HOT. But well worth it. The instructor was informative. It was very Zen like. My second class was during my lunch hour. It was a 45 min class. They provide private showers which was a plus. Took a quick shower and was back to work in no time. Love the location. More...
I just finished my first class at Warrior 1 and all I can say are positive things. The staff was friendly and genuinely interested in my experience. The instructor was patient, yet encouraging; she was thorough in describing how poses should flow and comfortable with aiding students through difficult postures. Did I mention they have state-of-the-art infrared heating elements from the ceiling? How cool is that! Heated yoga is more intense than the practices I had ever done before, I could feel my body purging toxins as sweat dripped onto the mat below. I will definitely be back for more and would highly recommend this studio to any one interested in taking up the discipline. More...
I have never had a better experience doing Yoga in my whole life! Now I'm Living life!
Tener un monto de conchas esta bien
Today I had my first personal hot yoga lesson with Dana, it was fantastic! Dana is an amazing instructor who has a way of placing you at ease while getting the most out of you. I cannot wait for my next lesson!
Purchase your group lessons TODAY and enjoy your classes with professionals who will ensure to meet your expectations. I have worked with Dana overseas in Iraq for several years, and I can say that she is the real deal. Athletic, determined and knowledgeable in her field of expertise. I recommend Warrior 1 Yoga Spa.

Dana,I don't know very much about Yoga,but knowing your parents the way the way I do,and knowing how you were raised,and your past military service I don't see how you can miss in your new business.all the best to you in this new venture.Jerry. More...
Great group lesson with friends and the awesome smoothie and body scrubs we tried out after were amazing! What a nice spa day!
I've been taking yoga for the last six months with Warrior 1 Yoga and I can definitely say I've noticed the benefits of it. I was skeptical about yoga at first...stretching, etc. I quickly learned that it is a butt kicker. I've taken other yoga classes and no one compares to W1Y. The instructor (Dana) is awesome!!! She works you very hard, but at the same time quickly understands your limitations and adjusts the class to you if its a personal one. I've done a group one with her and she equally gives one-on-one advice as you go so you maximize your workout. Without a doubt, I would recommend W1Y to anyone from beginner to advanced. More...
I've had 6 private sessions with her do far and it's amazing how challenging it has been. It's been a while since I've done yoga and I have improved so much on every session. I highly recommend a package. It's a really good deal and she caters to your health concerns. She's got 15 years of physical fitness training. A few years ago she gave me personal training at the gym for a few months so she's pretty diverse. More...
