A new phenomenon has hit recession-era Hollywood: pro bono yoga.
Instructor Marc Holzman charges his private clients in the entertainment
industry up to $200 for at-home lessons. This fall, however, he began
teaching at the Wilshire YMCA, offering free classes for anyone
with a Y membership (monthly cost: $45). Holzman’s Anusara yoga sessions
are brimming with bargain-hunting beginners—though celebrity yogi
Gurmukh, cofounder of the prestigious Golden Bridge studio, is also a
regular. “She’s in the front row every week,” says Holzman.Yogi: Ben Welsh/Corbis; Piggy Bank: Corbis
