and the winner is...

... still unknown; unfortunately, we won't find out which business was named the best yoga studio in LA until thursday, nov 29th :(

the polls for myfoxla's best yoga studio contest is now closed and the votes are being tallied (actually, i'm sure they already know who the winner is; the fox folk seem to be trying to drag things out before getting to the "reveal". don't you hate all this unnecessary delayed gratification?)

so once again, here's the final list of nominees; this time i've included links to their websites just in case you want to check them out:

myfoxla's list of yoga studios varies, depending on which link you clicked on to get the list. these businesses show up on the yoga studio hot list but don't show up on the final yoga studio nominee list, probably because they're not classified as yoga-only studios (in fact, some don't even teach yoga!):

Cheta Chiropractic Day Spa, Long Beach
Everybody's Pilates, Torrance
J.A.M. Studios, Playa del Rey
Pulse Fitness Studio, Sherman Oaks

so which of these studios has won the distinction (and more importantly, the bragging rights) of being the best yoga studio in LA? we'll just have to keep pacing back and forth on our yoga mats until it's announced next week...
