As demonstrated by the forthcoming Playlist Yoga in West Hollywood, Los Angeles yogis are looking for new ways to amp up their practice via music-fueled, energy-driven moves. That's why Y7—a Brooklyn-based, hip-hop Vinyasa flow studio—thought there was no place better to open its first-ever West Coast studio, set to hit our city this Saturday, January 2nd.
Located just a few doors down from celebrity-frequented Vegan eatery Crossroads, Y7's debut permanent studio will reside in Killion's former space at 8270 Melrose Avenue. Angeleno's already received a taste of Y7's fresh flow at this summer's Rebecca Minkoff pop-up, so the fitness craze will have no problem generating a loyal fan base out here.
Well+Good notes that the Melrose studio will feature a mirror-free, candlelit practice with infrared heat, as well as "a black-and-white minimalist lounge area, changing rooms, and retail space (where you can pick up a hoodie emblazoned with 'Namast'ay Fly' or a tee featuring the phrase 'A Tribe Called Sweat')."
Bonus for Eastside folks: Y7 will be popping up at The Standard DTLA on January 12th, 13th, 19th, and 20th! Stay tuned for more.
