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,
