    I love this concept. And their website is beautiful.

    Dose anyone know of a similar organization in Los Angeles?

      Hey Hillary! I'm glad you like it. This is my friend's organization and as far as we all know they are one of a kind. However, I'd suggest reaching out to them to perhaps see if you could find a studio in LA to be a part of the Yogis Heart club! I don't believe location should be too big an issue.

        That's a great idea. With so many yoga studios and yogis in LA, I think it would do great!
