The Area’s Best Yoga Instructors

To separate the best from the rest, we asked area yogis for their favorite instructors of all time

Corina Benner from Philly's Wake Up Yoga

The wrong instructor can make the minutes can feel like hours, push you toward injury, and turn beginners off the mat for good. The right instructor can deepen your practice, help you stress less, make you see the world in a more positive light, and tone and tighten your body. To make finding the right one for you a little bit easier, we asked local yoga-lovers tell us the teachers who’ve made a lasting impression and helped change their whole self —  mind, body and soul — for the better. — Research and write-ups by Grace Dickinson
