Brooklyn-based yoga studio Y7 may have to change its motto “Brooklyn we flow hard” soon.
The beat-bumping, candlelit, hot vinyasa workout is opening a new studio in the Flatiron District this Friday, April 3.
It’ll be the third location for the brand, which debuted with a tiny studio in Williamsburg in 2013 and opened a second location inside Soho’s Monster Cycle earlier this year.
“The main thing about the Flatiron location is that it’s the first one where the whole floor is finally ours,” co-owner Sarah Larson says. “We’re not at the mercy of our neighbors.” (As in, no more bathrooms and hallways shared with office and retail spaces, like in Brooklyn. Woot!)
The new space is on the fourth floor of the building, holds 30 yogis, and has a 350-square-foot check-in and lounge area—a luxury when you’re trying to peel off your jacket and shoes with all your bags and yoga mat.
There are two bathrooms exclusive to Y7, and while there are no showers, there will be an “I Woke Up Like This Bar,” with blow dryers, dry shampoo, and mirrors.
While Y7 has cult following that includes trendsetters like Zosia Mamet, it’s relatively unknown on the larger Manhattan fitness scene. So it’s Flatiron presence should give it much more fitness scene visibility. “The Flatiron is the fitness capital of the city, there are so many great studios right next to us,” Larson says.
