Top yoga destinations: New York, Los Angeles... and Nashville? “The scene has really exploded,” says Daphne Larkin, who founded Sanctuary for Yoga nearly a decade ago with partner Tom Larkin. The studio, which specializes in vinyasa flow, has done private sessions ($100/hour) with Ashley Judd, Jennifer Nettles, LeAnn Rimes and, recently, Christina Aguilera, who was in town to shoot Nashville -- Dierks Bentley has been known to stop by for regular group classes ($15) too.
“Tom and Daphne are geniuses,” says yoga devotee Rimes, who adds: “Not only has yoga strengthened muscles I never knew I had, it has calmed my mind. It has given me a space to open my body and heart.”
