Boring Yoga Be Gone!

Written By: Karli Karandos Unique Yoga Classes in California

It appears yoga has become more than downward dog, spiritual salutations, and Lululemon. There’s officially a type of yoga to combat your every excuse not to work out. If your routine has you feeling more blah than bling, it’s time to try something different. These classes combine the practice of yoga with fun activities like laughing, raving, paddle-boarding, DJ listening and yes, even drinking. You no longer have to choose between happy hour and getting a work out in. Boring yoga be gone! We’ve gathered the most uniquely themed and fun-filled yoga classes Southern California has to offer.
