Can I do 50 (studios) in (20)14?

Some people backpack around Europe. Others hike the Pacific Crest Trail. Me? I just yoga hop.

So I decided to set myself a challenge that, with teaching, writing, and selling a house here and there—will be,um, challenging.

Think : Julie and Julia.With me so far? But instead of going through all of Julia Child’s recipes, trying to cook them and then blogging the results…

I am going to visit a different yoga studio every week and blog about it. Now keep in mind, this is NOT about, oh they had nice flooring, but rather, about MY experience. Of course, I will do my due diligence and follow up my blog post with a yelp comment, because, hey, what’s a yogi to do?

It started innocently enough. I realized that we have this amazing yoga community in Sacramento, but most of us find the closest studio and stick with it—which is fine as wine (and I like wine). But it occurred to me that there are so many studios and yogis to meet. What an adventurer I am!

I realize that this may earn me a reputation as a yoga-hopper, and I have come to terms with that. We cannot all be perfect. Heck, I am still working on my corpse pose. (Just lay there, damn it).

I figure there are at least/about 50 studios in the Greater Sacramento Area. I will go as high as El Dorado, as far as Elk Grove (if I have to), and even parts of Wisconsin. Okay, I’m not really going to Wisconsin. But there are a ton of downtown studios. I may need a backpack after all?

*P.S. I won’t be hitting private clubs or topless bars. Um, unless you want to invite me to one? Private clubs I mean*

If you have a studio suggestions that are not on this page, please let me know.

If YOU are a  Sacramento yogi, why not join the Sacramento Yoga Community FB Group? All the cool kids are doing it.


These are the studios I have found that I will visit. If you can think of any additional ones that I have not named and that are within my perimeters for travel, please let me know. In order to still meet my goal of 50, I will be visiting some studios twice, taking a different style class with a different instructor. PS…these are in no particular order of agenda:
