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.

Hinge: Find "Eligible" Miami Singles With New Social App Today

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.

Ladies, let's get real. Going out is awesome, but those heels are fucking awful. Don't you wish there wasn't so much expectation to get so covered in make-up and squeeze into that tight dress every time you want to get your drink on?

Some of us love fussing over our ladylike appearance, but some of us feel actually quite trapped. It's time to break free and Drag #Out. This Friday at Gramps, Pandora Events and #Out Miami are giving everyone, regardless of gender or sexual identity, a chance to just be their damn selves, get drunk, and dance.

Kate Chastain and Kat Held of Bravo's Below Deck Talk Yacht Life and Crazy Passengers

You're nobody until you own your own yacht. Or charter one. Or maybe just work on one, because yacht rides are hard to come across these days. That's how Kate Chastain and Kat Held scored cabins on the Ohana, not to mention starring roles on the second season of Bravo's hit series Below Deck, which focuses on the trials and tribulations of a yacht crew. You know, running out of Caviar just hours outside of Antigua, overcooking your poodle's filet mignon or having to plan a five-star, champagne-filed picnic on a beach filled with, wait for it, sand. The struggles are real.

Kate, a Florida native from Melbourne, takes the lead as the head stewardess of the vessel, while Kat returns for a second season with the mission of reclaiming herself from the drunken shenanigans she was known for in the last. The two reside in Fort Lauderdale where Ohana departs, so we wanted to know a thing or two about the two blonde bombshells on board: their craziest demands, favorite Fort Lauderdale digs, and why they would kick off Andrew Sturby should they come across a chance iceberg in the Caribbean.

The Five Best Spas in Miami During Miami Spa Month

Categories: Lifestyle

The midday downpour; the earth-trembling thunder; oh, and of course, the oppressive humidity -- it all sounds like one big environmental horror story, right? Living in Miami, especially during the months of July and August, can easily evoke grueling spells of manic depression.

Yet, despite our inability to partake in otherwise normal summertime recreational past-times like the rest of our nation's coastal cities -- i.e. beachin', convertible cruisin' with your crew, and boats'n'hoes hoppin' -- July and August also come with a propitious prescription to amend your cabin-fever gloom: Miami Spa Month.

Jungle Island Debuts Water Park With Obstacles, Diving Cliffs, and Trampolines

jungle_island_water_park_flyer.jpg
It takes about five seconds of exposure to the current weather conditions before your body breaks out into a muggy sweat. We live in an urban jungle, and this pack of fashionably wild animals needs a watering hole.

Welcome summer with Jungle Island this Saturday, when the attraction happily announces the opening of its new aqua park. Gather the kids and hit the new beach (a whole beach!) when the heat is at its worst; then stay for the colorful summer experience African Nights, featuring dazzling performances by Cirque Zuma Zuma.

It's all part of Jungle Island's commitment to park redevelopment, and because the attraction really love its locals, it's sweetening the deal with some of the lowest prices ever.
