Yoga Vida’s Noho studio is spacious and clean. And with more space (there are three practice rooms) comes more classes. On average, there are 11 classes daily from 7:30am to 8pm, so you’re bound to find a time that works for your schedule. The instructor roster is top notch and they know their stuff. The best part about this location? They offer heated flow! Woot woot.

RUNDOWN

WORKOUT

This location offers both regular and heated classes. We took the latter—more specifically, a heated open-level vinyasa flow. The room was heated to a warm, but by no means sweltering, 80-90 degrees. YV uses infrared radiant panels to heat the room, which is different from traditional hot or Bikram yoga, and is more therapeutic and offers a ton of health benefits (Y7 also uses infrared). That class was 65 minutes of SWEATY vinyasa flow—replete with the expected sun salutations, warriors (I and II), boat pose and savasana.

INSTRUCTOR

Having studied at both the Jivamukti Yoga School and Ashtanga Yoga NYC, Jeffrey’s teaching and class style were both powerful and challenging—the class was fast-paced with a mix of Ashtanga sequences. For each pose, he explained and demonstrated the basic version as well as some optional variations—meaning that, whether this is the beginning of your yoga journey or you’ve been practicing for a decade or two, you’ll find your stride – err flow – in his class. But what stands out most for us about Jeffrey’s class, and more specifically his instructor style, is that he was super hands-on! Students looking for personal attention and hands-on adjustments: this is definitely the teacher for you. He quite literally pushed us to go deeper in our practice.

SPACE

While 99 University may be the OG, the Yoga Vida’s second location is bigger and newer. Simply put: it feels new and well-designed. There are three practice studios—two heated and one regular (each with cubbies to store personal belongings)—as well as space to store your sneaks and hang your coats, men’s and women’s restrooms and changing rooms, mat storage and a seating area in the back. You can rent mats and towels and purchase water and Yoga Vida apparel at the front desk.
