You’ll rarely hear someone in Huntington Beach say, “Namaste indoors,” but if you do, it’s likely because they’re spending some quality time with their yoga mat. Here, we’re all about a happy balance of land and sea. Visitors and locals looking to brush off the sand and hit the mat are met with a bounty of yoga studio options, from gentle to hot to atop a stand up paddle board (SUP). Here are our favorites in each of Surf City USA’s distinct neighborhoods.
