Most mid size and larger cities have some type of yoga classes and healthy choices at grocery stores are pretty common, not like the 70's where you had to search and travel for anything resembling healthy.
Maybe narrow down to Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, West and then keep narrowing down after you research each region, then state, then city within each region to find your best match.

I was unaware “health” was a term only associated with air quality

And how bad are we talking for SLC, Boise, Minneapolis, etc....? They aren’t even in the Top 25 areas for worst air quality.

The cities in the upper midwest generally has a healthy mindset and good resources for a healthy life. Down south, that type of thinking is more sporadic among the population, but can still be found.

It is a necessary but not sufficient quality naturally.

Boise is better - slc has awful inversion.

If you arenít used to it, it makes your eyes water

So in other words, there is over exaggeration for the air quality in the cities I listed? As I said, none are listed in the Top 25 for poor air quality, on multiple sites, and just to point out what I’m saying, Raleigh is the only city in the Top 50 and it’s at #44.

I’m not saying they’re cream of the crop, but they’re far from bad or the worst. I think some people just get a little too worked up or sensitive.

All cities I listed are affordable AND healthy in many ways

Eugene, OR. Not the cheapest, but cheaper than Portland. Both are definitely healthy options concerning this subject. Very fitness oriented choices.

All three suffer from inversions and given the frequency of wildfires out west would worry over the long term as lack of rainfall continues to be an issue in the warm weather months.
