Welcome to our weekly roundup of wellness tidbits, healthy hints, and new places and products that caught our eye. Our Page 6!

More space for your Soul. The UWS fitness renaissance continues with an exciting development for those of us who felt cramped in SoulCycle’s original West 70s location. Their brand-new, much-larger studio will open at 350 Amsterdam (at 77th Street) next Saturday, September 17.

Souped-up Pilates. Following in the footsteps of Barry’s Bootcamp, another boutique LA-import has just hit New York. This time, it’s in the form of SLT (Strengthen Lengthen, Tone), a Pilates-meets-cardio-and-strength-training workout brought east by Vital Juice co-founder Amanda Freeman. We can’t wait to see if New Yorkers love the method, done on Megaformers (Pilates Reformers on steroids), as much as they love Barry’s. Stay tuned for a Q&A with Freeman next week!

Yoga Union debuts. In a week of lots of fitness openings, Alison West, famous for her yoga center for back care and scoliosis, is opening a more expansive new center right across the street in Chelsea called Yoga Union. The new location won’t be back-specific; instead there will be structural flow classes and lots of rope wall stations. The studio kicks off with a party followed by Kirtan this Saturday, and a 9/11 tribute on Sunday.

Beauty Blowout. After completing its own tests on the Brazilian Blowout, the FDA issued its first official warning against the company, telling them to reduce formaldehyde levels in the product and to change misleading labels by September 12, or the products will be yanked from U.S. shelves. We never thought we’d say this, but…go FDA!

Farmer’s Market Fashion Show. Can’t get tickets to any Fashion Week shows? The farmers at Tucker Square Greenmarket, directly across from Lincoln Center on Broadway, will stage their own slightly less-chic version this Saturday. Bring your old clothes to be recycled by Wearable Collections.
