Yoga may be soothing for the body and mind, but it can be rough on the wallet. And while free outdoor yoga is awesome, sometimes you just want a little AC to keep you from flinging sweat at your zen-like neighbor.

At Wynwood Warehouse Project's Enigmatic Vibrations, you can get your yoga on for just $5 on Tuesdays and Saturdays, starting October 21.

Every week there's an arbitrary new ranking released by some dubious website or publication: Miami ranks last in number of Ivy Leaguers, first in number of Brazilian butt lifts. It's great fodder, but how does Miami stack up when it comes to the stuff that actually matters?

Last night at the Bakehouse Art Complex, the Miami Foundation revealed the findings of a new report outlining how Miami is doing in eight key areas: arts & culture, civic engagement, economy, education, environment & public spaces, health & safety, housing & affordability, and transportation. There was lots to talk about.

If you're even remotely into fitness, it's likely you get tired of the usual suspects: spinning, boot camp, CrossFit, yadda, yadda. Same old sweaty lineup. Dullsville. Lots of people end up abandoning their workout routines out of sheer boredom.

Luckily, Miami's has some newer fitness additions that make burning calories a lot more entertaining.

In addition to bendy limbs and lots of patience, becoming a yogi also requires cash money. Because no one will accept inner peace as currency.

Lucky for wannabe yoga instructors with a cash flow problem, United Yoga University and Yogic Arts Teacher Training are gifting one lucky winner with a spot in a November dual certification class at Exhale Spa. The winner will come away with a dual cert as a yoga and martial arts instructor.

With all the fuss about what goes into our bodies, it's easy to forget about what goes on them. Given that our skin is the largest organ (and arguably the most sensitive), it's just as important to read the labels on beauty products as it is on foodstuffs.

Luckily, green beauty is everywhere. New companies offering good-for-you cosmetic products are popping up all the time and come October 3, you can check out some of these local brands at Miami's first Green Beauty Night Out.

Miami is the city of the selfie. Our art-flushed eyes are used to a certain amount of visual stimulation -- at least that's what we'd like people to believe. Truthfully, we must just really like looking at and talking about ourselves.

Self-obsessed as this city may be, everybody gets bored at some point swiping through photos. Hinge, the "anti-Tinder," as it calls itself, has arrived to add a little more substance to your dating search. Launching in Miami, Tampa, and Orlando today, the social discovery app helps users meet new people through friends.

Hinge is a social network that helps you meet new people through friends. The app has raised more than $8.6 million and made more than 6 million friend-of-friend matches in cities such as Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, and L.A.

Even happier news: In conjunction with the launch, Hinge has published a market research study on the perception of what it is like to date in each of these cities.

Good thing we live here, because if we wanted to visit Miami, we'd have to shell out some pretty big bucks. In an Index compiled by Bloomberg, Miami rated the priciest city in the U.S. for lodging, and top fifth in the world. That's after Geneva, Dubai, Kuwait City (really?), and Zurich.

According to Bloomberg, Collins Avenue and all its ritzy hotels, restaurants, and nightclubs are to blame for the sky-high prices guesthouses charge for a night in the Magic City.

Yoga Guru Cyndi Lee on a Simple Way to Stop Hating Our Bodies

Categories: Books, Lifestyle

As a renowned yoga teacher and media darling, Cyndi Lee seemed like the poster child for confidence and self-acceptance. Yogis are supposed to be radiant avatars, after all. But beneath the Namastes and Lululemon she was hating her body, just like (most of) the rest of us.

This realization led her on a lengthy journey -- to India, to Japan in the midst of the 2011 earthquake, to interviewing notable women, to finally embracing a loving kindness practice that shifted her perspective. She penned the book, May I Be Happy, about her experience, and she's speaking about it at Books & Books on September 18. We spoke to Lee on self-loathing, new perspectives and how she's accepted the wrinkles on her knees.

There's been a lot of talk about weed lately. The whole state of Florida is alive with the promise of legal medical bud. We drive past billboards that just say "marijuana" like every day, and we couldn't be more stoked about it.

We've had plenty of practice, so when the vote comes in November followed by hopeful victory, we know just where to go to celebrate. If you're celebrating early in anticipation, consider heading over to one of these highly-enjoyable destinations. We tested them. They're good.
