Several new studios find recession not a big deterrent to opening, strangely

Players big and small, fearless of lean times, falling revenue.

In Williamsburg, Sangha Yoga Shala by Alanna Kessler and Cory Washburn. This studio will mix Iyengar and Astanga traditions. 107 N 3rd, between Berry and Wythe.  Classes start April 13. 

Fierce Club “yoga to kick your asana,” from “Core Strength” Sadie Nardini and partner Shannon Connell. Opens for classes first week of March. 

In Soho, Exhale Spa. “Located within a light filled temporary space at 68-70 Spring Street between Crosby + Lafayette, enjoy our signature Core Fusion®, Core Fusion® Sport and Core Energy Flow® classes while our permanent Downtown New York City flagship spa is being constructed. Exhale is pleased to be partnering in a condo conversion in a historic building that will be green (LEED gold standard) that is underway at 200 Lafayette Street in Downtown Manhattan.”

Soon on the Upper West Side, Pure Yoga numero deux.

And also in Soho, Yoga Works, Soho. “Our Soho location will be the latest addition to the YogaWorks family. It’s innovative, cutting edge, environmentally friendly and the best thing to happen to yoga since the yoga mat. This is the perfect opportunity to find out how yoga can work for you.”

Ready, set, eat your heart out, folks.
