Miami has eased on in to becoming quite the yoga city. You can find a class in almost every gym, and most neighborhoods are lucky enough to tout at least one studio where residents can plank and camel pose to their soul's content.

In lieu of National Yoga Month this September, we've rounded up a hefty list of yoga studios in Miami, arranged from north to south. Granted, there are many more ways you can practice the art, like at all encompassing gyms, community centers, or free classes at a park, however we've opted to round up those studios that dedicate themselves solely to the varying practices of yoga, often adding their own spin, like aerial lessons or kid's sessions. If you're an avid yogi and think we missed one on the list, relax. We're open to suggestions, so let us know in the comments section, or shoot us an email at miami@racked.com. Namaste!

Update: We've added Rina Yoga and Daily Offering Yoga to the list. Keep the suggestions coming, guys!
