Are these America’s best yoga studios? (Answer: probably not)

The cutely named last week put out its list of the best yoga studios from across America. We’d likely argue:

Bloom Studio- Chicago, IL

Wondering what to expect from your studio while you’re expecting? Though many yoga studios offer the occasional class for pregnant women, Bloom Studio specifically caters to expectant mothers. This Chicago favorite holds prenatal classes almost every day along with classes designed for mothers and their young children.


Bikram Yoga College of India- Los Angeles, CA

Known for its masses of Lulu Lemon-wearing yoga devotees, Los Angeles offers endless studio options for potential yogis. Our favorite is the Bikram Yoga College of India in West LA, which offers the very best in hot yoga—an hour and a half long, extremely intense workout in 105 degree heat.

One thing that’s really hard to ignore: Lots of white people. And fit people. This is why there’s a backlash against the usual images we get from the “yoga industrial complex.”

  1. I clicked over to the article to see it and I guess what I found most striking, was barely any mention of the type of yoga taught and mostly concentrating on decor.
