Y7 turns yoga on its head and makes it spin in this house of hip hop. Creative, challenging flows are set to bass thumpin’ beats in an infrared heated room. It’s kept dark but classes here are lit... candlelit, that is, but sans mirrors, making it less ideal for newbies to the yoga game. There are no showers, but there’s a station for filtered water, and mats ($2) and towels ($3) for rent if you forget your own. Don’t forget a sweaty post-workout selfie with the inspirational wall quote on your way out. Have five minutes to spare? Walk to Melrose Place for a jolt at the O.G. Alfred’s because hey, you #earnedit. Unsurprisingly, the lack of parking here shows no chill, so arrive early for metered spots, or score free parking on Harper and Sweetzer avenues, just be sure to triple check posted signs.
