My favorite neighborhood yoga studio in New York City. What’s yours?


Be a Well+Good yoga scout! Tell us about your favorite New York neighborhood yoga studio.
Yoga Agora
The sun-filled studio at Yoga Agora in Astoria

I discovered Yoga Agora (33-02 Broadway, at 33rd St., Astoria, www.yogaagora.com), a one-room studio over a shuttered restaurant on Broadway in Queens, because I took a different route home from the subway one day. I’m so glad I did.

Vibe: The sun-filled studio is totally unpretentious—and welcoming at $5 per class (or donation only). The instructors (Anna Ahlin is my favorite) gently push you towards your limits in “traditional power vinyasa flow” classes. Classes typically focus on the physical aspects of yoga (my cup of tea), but Ahlin is also great at coaching your breathing.

Drawback: Some classes are too packed for arm-swooping forward bends and you have to hop on one-foot while putting your shoes on for lack of a changing room or chairs.

Got a favorite local yoga studio?

Inspired by my discovery of this tiny New York neighborhood yoga studio, we at Well+Good started to marvel how many others exist, above bodegas and next to pizzerias, in every borough. Our finding: There are dozens of studios with quality yoga instruction and other great things going for them. Except that no one knows about them. Shouldn’t they get the limelight?yoga studio in Queens New York

Since we’re a small staff and this is a very big city, we need you to be our yoga scouts! After all, who knows New York yoga better than Well+Good readers? Send us a 100-word review of your favorite neighborhood studio, like ours, above, to [email protected].

Please include where it is, why you love it, who your favorite teacher is (first and last name, please), and anything else you think warrants a visit. If you’ve got an iPhone photo of your studio, send it along, too! We’ll select, edit, and share your unsung yoga studio with everyone else.

Fine print: Well+Good reserves the right not to post reviews or photos for any reason, to fact check reviews with the yoga studio, and to contact the reviewer for further information.
