As yoga becomes more a part of our lives, the more we create new forms of the practice, or add embellishments to enhance our experience. Williamsburg and other neighborhoods in New York City rich in creatives have seen a stream of new yoga studios pop up that add their own twists. From aerial yoga to including hip-hop into the yoga practice, here are seven innovative yoga studios in the area.
Incorporating a fun and open atmosphere, the Laughing Lotus with one location in Williamsburg and the other in Manhattan offers mild, medium, and spicy style classes. From Yin Flow to Lotus Flow, they infuse ancient yoga traditions with music for inspiration. They also have events, workshops and retreats like Chakra Balancing, Monthly Blues Class with Live Music, and Midnight Yoga Mashup!
