New Year, New You, I.AM.YOU

New Year, New You, New York! You’ve read this more than once probably. Well, why wouldn’t it be true this time? Of course, you can start a diet, quit smoking or decide to call your mom more often, but we have found a better idea: Yoga.

We already hear the anti green-juice-yoga-mat-combo team screaming…But yoga isn’t always boring as you may think. And especially in Studios such as I.AM.YOU.

This place feels like home. The classes take place in a big loft. When you arrive, all the gear is already set up so you can start your relaxation or meditation right away (look at the ceiling, there’s a little detail we love). Music is a mix of rock-n-roll, hip-hop, salsa, flamenco and other rhythms from around the globe made especially for each class by a resident DJ.

We particularly recommend you to try the Sunrise Sessions at 7 am with Lindsey. While the sun is rising in between the buildings, her voice will take you to a deep meditation state and she will end up your Shavasana with a secret ointment that smells wonderful. Your day will definitely start with an intention-filled state of mind and a big smile (but trust us, your body will be sore the next day :))

So put your alarm on, give your body & mind a little treat, and if you’re courageous enough to go early in the morning, we might see you there!

Expert and New Yogis can meet on 132 Mulberry St in apartment 6E. Classes are $30 or $120/month. – map
