The $20 Downward Dog
A $55-a-month gym membership or $20 weekly yoga class is often the first thing to go when you're trying to trim expenses. But donation-based yoga studios are becoming increasingly popular, and not just in New York and Los Angeles. Here's just a sampling of centers around the country that have a suggested donation of $10 or are simply pay-what-you-wish: Be Yoga in Austin, Tex.; Yoga Sol in Minneapolis; Yoga District in Washington, DC; Lawrence Yoga Collective in Boston; and Moonlit Yoga in Portland, Ore.
