Best Sweet, Gentle Yoga - Is That OK With You? Los Angeles 2011 

Yoganette

Think high-quality yoga only takes place in Venice, Malibu, Silver Lake and the other usual-suspect chic enclaves? Think again. Yoga has spread like sushi and fixed-gear bicycles. Areas like the San Gabriel Valley and the Inland Empire now are home to enough yoga to allow diverse choices among studios, including such special finds as Yoganette, a studio in West Covina frequented by passionate enthusiasts. It has a cozy, intimate, superfriendly vibe and teachers who make individualized attention, comfort and careful explanation their top priorities. Regulars love the clean, bright, cheerful space and affordable prices. But what sets this place apart is the gentle, sweetly idealistic, disarmingly pure approach of the instructional staff — whose teacher statements are personal and touching, like short application essays to the mellowest college on Earth. 2360 S. Azusa Ave., Suite C, West Covina. (626) 965-4000, yoganette.com.

  • Partying at Comic-Con 2014
    Whoever said nerds can't party has obviously never experienced Comic-Con after dark. The industry parties might have free booze, but most of those execs are back in bed by 10 p.m. If you ask the fans they'll tell you that sometimes the best party is the one happening in the hotel lobby with their friends. We set out to get our geeky grove on and capture all the action in the Gaslamp Quarter. All photos by Shannon Cottrell.
  • Comic-Con's "Celebrity" Autograph Area
    A sometimes overlooked (but still incredibly unique) aspect of San Diego Comic-Con are the celebs available to sign autographs, as well as the autograph seekers themselves. If you've ever wanted to meet the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld or the guy who played Michelangelo in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, chances are, as you wander the Autograph Area, you'll be able to connect with someone you didn't even realize you were waiting your whole life to meet!
