Abide Yoga - 12732 Larchmere Rd                
Abide Yoga has a super cozy studio and a little bit of everything on their schedule. Attend a vinyasa class to get moving after a day sitting at the computer, or check out one of their many classes that are designed to help yogis unwind like chill flow, gentle, restorative, or meditation. On Mondays they hold a class featuring tunes by a random musician-of-choice; past classes have included Cat Stevens, Bjork, and Fleet Foxes. (Photo via Abide Yoga Facebook)

There's No Place Like Om - 5409 Detroit Ave 
One of the more interesting things about this studio is that they offer "Buck Naked Yoga." Yep, it's just what it sounds like. CNN did a video about the men-only class that is exclusively offered by studio owner Buck Harris back in 2012. They offer other classes, too, if naked yoga doesn't sound appealing. Your first class is free, which is always a plus when you're searching for a studio you like. (Photo via clevelandyoga.net)
