Palm Springs Yoga
More Than Movement
Yoga hasn’t always been a big part of the Palm Springs life, but it’s grown. But it’s grown with a spiritual slant. Starting with the oldest studio in the area, Urban Yoga, with it’s decided loungey feel, other studios have embraced the non-traditional approach.
