Best Yoga Studio (2012)
Seaside Yoga Sanctuary
1360 Fremont Blvd., Seaside
Chautauqua Hall, 17th and Central, Pacific Grove
When the weight of your world is knotted into your shoulders, your mind is as cluttered as your kitchen and your bones creak like a rusty bike, head to the refuge in Seaside or Pacific Grove. Whether you’re an advanced yogi or a newbie, the Sanctuary’s got a practice suited to your needs – from Hatha to Kundalini, restorative to Sivananda. Laura McKinnon’s peaceful studios offer classes specially designed for beginners, pre – and postnatal moms, babies, kids and seniors. Weekend AcroYoga workshops and kirtan sessions bring even more variety to the SYS calendar. The benefits to the body include stronger muscle tone, better posture, decreased back pain, sharper mental clarity, improved circulation and lower stress. The benefits to the spirit can best be described in the sound of a mindful exhale: Om.
