Philadelphia is apparently one of the best cities for yoga enthusiasts.

An analysis by Forbes says Philly is among the metro areas where yoga is the most popular. The magazine used surveys that asked people whether they practiced yoga, how frequently they did so and how long their sessions were to rank the metro areas.

In Philadelphia, Forbes writes, residents are 42 percent more likely to do yoga than the general population. Here's the full list of the 10 top cities for yoga fans:
