yoga NYC

There are so many yoga studios in Tribeca; it seems a new hip studio is cropping up each week. It’s easy to get swept up in the whirlwind of exploring downtown New York (and the stress that comes with it,) so it’s important to take time out of your day to relax and rejuvenate with some meditative yoga.

We like Yoga in Tribeca (38 Walker St. Fl 4) owned by Carolyn Oberst; she is extremely involved in her studio, which offers a range of yoga styles including Sivananda, Iyenger and Restorative yoga. The Kula Yoga Project (28 Warren St) is a boutique yoga studio; the stained glass windows create a beautiful glow throughout the studio that lends to the oasis-like feel. They offer an affordable new student drop-in rate (3 classes for $50) which makes it easy for new students to become familiar with the studio. Kula is known for offering more challenging classes with unique takes on traditional yoga moves (we love Yoga Soundscape) as well as an entire yoga series just for expectant moms (KulaNatal). Lyons Den Power Yoga (279 Church St. 3rd Fl) offers heated Vinyasa yoga which is why locales and visitors alike flock to this yoga haven. Lyons Den Power Yoga teaches the Baptise method of yoga. Yoga and Pilates (78 Reade St.) offers a wide range of yoga and Pilates classes at their Tribeca location their philosophy is that yoga and Pilates shouldn’t break the bank-classes begin at $17. All of this yoga would inspire anyone to stick with a healthy diet as well so if there was ever a time to hop on the juicing trend it would be after an invigorating yoga class. For fresh and pressed juice, check out Yorganic (275 Greenwich St.), Juice Press (415 Greenwich St.) and Jamba Juice (88 W. Broadway).
