Brooklyn-based Y7 yoga now has a Manhattan home at Monster Cycle

Brooklyn-born Y7 yoga is bringing its bumping hip-hop beats and strength-building vinyasa flow classes to Soho.

Starting tomorrow, the Williamsburg-based yoga studio is opening a space inside The Monster Cycle’s tricked-out (and leather-loving) fitness studio on Lafayette Street, which opened in Manhattan last fall.

Monster had been hosting yoga classes alongside spin classes in its Monster Cycle + Studio space, but now the adjacent mat-filled space will only offer Y7’s yoga classes.

Y7 will really function like its own studio within Monster with a separate check-in desk and everything. There will be six classes a day, seven days a week for the same $22 price as the classes in Brooklyn. And the fact that these two brands are shacking up could be very cool.

At The Monster Cycle the spin classes are done in sync to music videos that kick off with a parental advisory message, and decor includes things like leather straps, a black velvet chaise, and outsize chandeliers. Y7 also enjoys breaking the sweaty mold of yoga classes by dispensing with Buddha statuary and harmoniums: Classes are more about butt-kicking yoga sequences set to loud music with a live DJ rather than spiritual experiences.

“Where else can you go and cycle to a Calvin Harris-themed video ride then head upstairs to a hip-hop yoga class?” says Monster Cycle’s Sarah LaBier, about the pairing. Hope you have something rad to wear. —Molly Gallagher
