The Best Yoga Studios In Manhattan In 2024

Happy New Year! We had so much fun ringing in the new (and watching the ball drop from St. Cloud Rooftop) at our legendary New Year’s Eve party. We hope you and your loved ones had a wonderful holiday season and are looking forward to a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2024!

For many of our guests, a great year begins with a renewed commitment to wellness in mind, body, and spirit. Of course, New York offers a million ways to unwind and reconnect to one’s inner being, but this time of year, we’re particular fans of yoga. The ancient healing technique is a winning trifecta of stimulating exercise, restorative stretching, and focused breathing. Read on for some of the best yoga studios in Manhattan — including in neighbourhoods around The Knickerbocker — where you’re bound to walk out feeling refreshed.

Yoga Studios In Midtown

Yoga Spa Lounge

Part yoga studio, part spa — with an expansive schedule of classes and long list of soothing treatments available — Yoga Spa Lounge is open for drop-ins, set class passes, monthly memberships, and even private sessions.

Sonic Yoga

Perched between Hell’s Kitchen and Columbus Circle, Sonic Yoga is known for its nurturing environment that emphasizes community over competition. Go during the off-hours to avoid crowds in the reception area and enjoy a unique Vinyasa experience in the wood-floored studio filled with natural light. Specialty offerings include fertility yoga, one-on-one yoga, and corporate yoga in your office.

The Yoga Common

With a second location in Austin, an online library of yoga classes, and the option to livestream yoga, The Yoga Common has the flexibility to serve both busy New York yogis and visitors. We recommend first-timers start with a $49 two-week trial, which offers unlimited classes in their lovely Midtown brownstone, plus unlimited livestream yoga, and unlimited access to their online yoga class archives.

Om Factory

Channel your inner Pink (who’s famously been doing aerial yoga for a decade and, at 44, has the perfectly toned muscles and world-tour performance stamina to show for it), and swing from the silks at Union Square’s Om Factory. First time flyers can get started with a beginner class. They also offer circus bungee, aerial core, aerial hammock and aerial dance classes, kids’ aerial classes, and lyra hoops classes.

Y7 Studio

Y7 Studio is focused on Vinyasa-style yoga flows in heated spaces. The Flatiron’s 4,000-square-foot space features two studios, two “refresh bars,” showers, and more — making it easy to get in, out, and on with your day after a hot yoga workout. Appointments are recommended, but walk-ins are welcome, pending availability. With additional locations in The East Village, The Upper East Side, Brooklyn, LA, and Austin.

bodē nyc

Formerly known as Bikram Yoga NYC, bodē nyc was founded in 1999 and calls itself New York’s original hot yoga studio. But don’t let their longevity fool you, they’ve built their reputation on being friendly to newcomers — including those new to the restorative benefits of hot yoga. This women-led yoga studio also offers Hot HIIT, Hot Vinyasa, Hot Sculpt and Hot Yin Yoga and has an additional location on the UES.

Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York

Another longtime NYC yoga studio, the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York was founded in 1987 by the late, highly respected B.K.S. Iyengar, who introduced yoga to the West. It is a go-to spot for both beginners and advanced yogis, thanks to the emphasis on clear instruction and proper physical alignment.

They also have adorably trendy workout merch, clean beauty products and adaptogens for sale.

Lyons Den Power Yoga

Manhattan’s first studio dedicated to the Baptiste yoga style, where poses flow quickly into one another, rather than being held, Lyons Den lives up to its name: when you enter, you will be challenged!
