Yoga in California is no longer a fringe activity — classes are widely found in gyms, workplaces and even in some California prisons. In San Francisco this weekend, more than 40 of the world’s most well-known yoga teachers and nearly 2,000 yoga practitioners will attend the annual Yoga Journal Conference. We talk with local yogis about the conference and the state of yoga in the West.
