YogaVida has become my yoga home in NYC, as it has varying levels and types of classes, as well as instructors. It is easy to find the type of instruction you are looking for in their teachers, as they are all fabulous and well trained!
Came for the really good first time student intro rates, stayed for the exceptional teachers and class styles, able to keep coming back and coming back because they have a wide range of community (suggested donation) classes along with a large schedule of regular price classes.Original recommendation
My first time at Yoga Vida in NYC. I attended a workshop on Yin Yoga and Meditation with Terry today along with a friend at the Yoga Vida @ Union Square location. It was a 2 hour workshop and practice. Terry was exceptionally skilled at teaching an authentic yin practice and I left feeling light and refreshed. She was available to answer questions after class.Original recommendation
I really love that Yoga Vida offers yin yoga as this is such an amazing practice which seems to be in low supply in New York. The Union Square studio is super clean, tidy, and quiet, as well as has tons of props on hand. The staff are lovely - both helpful and friendly.
The Union Square location doesn't carry a lot of merchandise for sale (t-shirts, sweatshirts, leggings, water bottles, etc) so we stopped by the Noho location after (~10 min walk away) as I wanted to buy a yoga vida sweatshirt for myself (they are super soft). :)
I had a great experience and look forward to coming back.
As a ClassPass user I went in to the studio as a beginner and I'm pretty sure I came out a yogi pro, this class was amazing, very challenging, I did not expect to be challenged and break a sweat like I did. The instructor was very helpful and guided me to perfect my practice, will definitely be going again as I loved the challenge.Original recommendation
For other ClassPass users the class is an open level/beginner but come prepared to push yourself !
Great instructors! Warm and inviting folks. Wonderful space and a full schedule of classes in 2 locations. I feel very at home and loved at Yoga Vida.Original recommendation
