Yoga in the City

Did you know that New York City alone has about 300 yoga studios? Compare that to about 175 Starbucks locations in New York City, and you can start to understand the importance of yoga to the city’s stressed-out residents.

I have been practising yoga for more than ten years, and I’m a certified instructor in three different yoga styles: Ashtanga, hatha and vinyasa. Finding the perfect yoga studio, and the perfect yoga class, can be tricky since we all have different expectations of what a yoga class should contain. Personally, I prefer my yoga classes very dynamic, sweaty and physically demanding, and preferably with music. I always work better with music. If you have the same taste in yoga as me, I can recommend my 4 favorite studios (all popular studios that feature some of the city’s most sought-after teachers).


xoxo, Charlotte

    Can you do a beginners guide to yoga?
    How do you stay so slim? Do you only do yoga and dance and run? Sandra, Copenhagen
