Yoga-urt, opening their Santa Monica location in 2021, is a new and healthier soft serve concept using frozen yogurt.  All flavors are made fresh daily from scratch using only certified organic ingredients, starting with hand squeezed almond milk, dairy free ingredients and added probiotics.  Their toppings bar offers mostly organic and all vegan options.  Yoga-urt offers over 30 nut-based handcrafted rotating flavors of organic, vegan, gluten-free, soy-free soft serve, including Chocolate Bliss, Salted Caramel and Pistachio.

Yoga-urt abides by Santa Monica’s Disposable Food Service Ware ordinance by procuring to-go containers and utensils made from natural fiber materials like wood/paper that can be composted in the City’s  Commercial Organics Recycling program.  In line with AB 1276, unbundled disposable utensils and straws are provided only upon customer request. 

Yoga-urt is powered by 100% renewable energy from California Clean Power Alliance, Santa Monica’s local community choice aggregation (CCA) provider. For energy conservation, Yoga-urt uses natural sunlight via several ceiling to floor windows and LED lighting throughout.  Water conservation measures include installing high efficiency faucet aerators on hand-washing sinks that reduce the flow to half gallon per minute.

To reduce toxins flowing down the drain after cleaning, Yoga-urt purchases only non-toxic and green certified cleaning products.  Nearly all paper janitorial products are unbleached, including paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, and paper bags. 

For waste reduction, Yoga-urt implemented a zero-waste program adding clearly labeled composting and recycling bins maintained by trained staff.  These efforts result in diverting 80-90% of their discards from ending up in local landfills.  Yoga-urt does their part for recovering edible food by reusing their extracted almond pulp (left over from making vegan yogurt) in pie crusts and cookies for their ice cream sandwiches.  They also serve kombucha floats, banana splits, shakes, pints to go, and more!
