Chelsea Piers debuts a new barre and yoga studio


The west side gym debuts a boutique studio open to non-members, featuring a new yoga program, and a partnership with the Nalini Method.

You may think of Chelsea Piers’ expansive fitness facility as a destination for competitive athletes. But with a brand-new, mind-body studio that will be home to its first barre classes, and yoga, the west side gym is courting a boutique-studio-loving crowd.

The studio, which opened on June 22 for a week of preview classes, will host two workout options for tucking and toning: most notably, the popular Nalini Method, taught by founder Rupa Mehta herself, and a brand-new proprietary barre method developed collaboratively by the team of instructors.

The yoga program, designed by popular former Pure Yoga instructor Yogi Charu, includes classes that range from power vinyasa to restorative and Yoga Nidra (conscious relaxation).

The studio’s lounge has a stone wall and arm chairs.

The new studio will work more like a boutique fitness one. Classes are open to non-members and cost $30. (Chelsea Piers members will have to pay an extra monthly fee of $45 for unlimited classes.)

Making it easier to pop in and out for class, the studio is located outside the main complex, with an entrance right off the drive that runs along the West Side Highway. (So you skip the walk down the pier and parking lot. Good news for those who don’t also run the track and climb the rock wall.)

Inside the new studio is a lounge with enough key-code lockers for a packed class, two bathrooms and two separate changing rooms. The fitness studio itself is super spacious, with bamboo flooring, two walls of mirrors, and barres lining all four walls.

Of course, if you want to shower you’ll have to trek to the main locker rooms. Maybe schedule a post-workout blowout at the pretty new Paul Labrecque Salon to make it worth your while? —Lisa Elaine Held
