Yoga is known to be grounding, but how about grounding your chakras from the tippy-top of NYC?
Edge, the tallest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere has teamed up with Equinox gym to bring New Yorkers a fitness class 1,100 feet in the sky.
The morning yoga class series, which costs $50 a session, includes a one-hour yoga class with Equinox on the outdoor sky deck, a yoga mat to use for class, and a 30-minute window after the class to take in the 360-degree view at Edge. (Be sure to stand over the stomach-dropping glass floor.)
You can book a class on Tuesdays or Wednesdays at 9am or on Fridays at 7:30am. All sessions are available to the public—you don't need a pricey Equinox membership to get in on these.
If you’ve yet to experience a workout class since March, here’s what Edge is doing to keep visitors safe. First, all class-goers must sign a printed health declaration and have their temperatures taken upon check-in.
Yoga mats will be laid out 6 feet apart and face coverings are required at all times throughout the visit (except while on your mat during the class). Be sure to dress accordingly — it’s cooler and breezier than you’d expect.
You can snag tickets every Friday at noon for the following week here.
