Take advantage of the pleasant year-round weather and take a class outside. There’s nothing like doing tree pose under palm trees, surrounded by hummingbirds and the occasional stare of a groundhog. The instructors at Runyon Canyon Yoga have been offering three classes per day (paid by donation) for over ten years to a diverse bunch of students. All body types, levels and modes of dress welcome (some people roll up in jeans). Bring your own mat. Snacks and water available by donation on the honor system at base of the hill.

Best way to see the Hollywood Sign upside down? Try the Friday morning 8 a.m. class at Barnsdall Art Park, right in front of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House. Offered by donation by actor/Yoga Journal cover model/longtime yoga instructor Lauren Peterson, it’s the best deal in town with a breathtaking view of the Hollywood Hills and Peterson’s dog Koko, who does downward facing dog at the end of every class on command—in Sanskrit!
