Registered yoga teacher and founder Giovanna Rogow has been helping practitioners from all walks of life foster connections between the mind, body, and spirit in Zomoti's newly renovated studio. Her team of experienced instructors, all of whom are certified at at least the 200-hour level, leads 10 different class styles, teaching strengthening power yoga, Vinyasa flow fundamentals, and Zomoti soothing yoga, designed to relax the body and mind with meditative postures and comforting hugs from supportive mats.

Co-owner and chief fitness strategist Raymond Wallace's passion lies in designing high-intensity fitness curriculums and training patrons of all fitness levels to increase their muscle mass and annihilate fat at PEDAL NYC. Raymond himself has trained Harry Connick Jr., and fellow trainer Ary Nunez has worked with Rihanna and Alicia Keys. Triathletes and former NCAA Division I athletes round out the rest of the staff. The gym—named for Raymond's cycling expertise—incorporates classes from many other disciplines of exercise, including TRX suspension training, and YoStretch, for a total of over 30 classes per week. Within the always-buzzing facility, purple-painted cinderblocks peek from above the full-length mirrors that span every room, contrasting with the fiery orange sunlight that streams through floor-to-ceiling windows. Rows upon rows of indoor bicycles whirr beneath riders, who draw motivation from upbeat music, the instructors' infectious enthusiasm, or imagining pedaling away from a monstrous fanged cupcake.
The certified instructors at MetroActive Fitness, Inc. focus on getting tangible results for clients during their group fitness workouts. Each 30-minute class works on specific muscle areas—the Armed & Dangerous class is a cardio workout that focuses on sculpting the upper body, and the Ab-Solution session is a core-based class that works the abdominal and oblique muscles. Clients are challenged to push past their limits and classes are designed to be fun, energetic, and fast-paced.
My Yoga Revolution Studio employs a unique method of Vinyasa yoga to harness the therapeutic properties of the art. Its form of the discipline emphasizes focused breathing in each posture. They meld those teachings into their classes, custom yoga therapy sessions, all-levels classes, and retreats for beginners, experienced practitioners, and those with injuries and chronic health conditions. All-levels classes teach advanced asanas such as inversions and arm balances, while guided meditation focuses on soothing relaxation techniques. For a more personalized healing session, teachers detoxify the body with Ayurvedic consultations and Panchakarma therapy, which corrects seasonal imbalances in the body over a three-five-seven-day period.
In addition to teaching students the art of therapeutic yoga, the studio offers 200-hour yoga teacher training for students that can be taken over six weekends or within three weeks. Teacher training aims to help graduates learn the necessary skills to teach yoga and market and self-promote themselves in a variety of settings, ranging from gyms to private practices. When the serene interior of the studio isn’t enough to whisk their students’ minds to another place, the staff whisks away their bodies by leading regular retreats to the Catskills and Bali.
Instead of setting up shop inside a brick-and-mortar building, Classtivity stretches its fitness-bestowing reach throughout five cities, inviting people to burn calories, tone muscles, or find inner peace—all on their own schedule. Students simply search for the type of class they wish to take, such as yoga, cardio dance, or strength training, along with the time, price range, and location, before booking it online. With hundreds of activities and 20,000 available classes, the right class is always just around the corner. The company even includes classes in artistic pursuits such as guitar and painting. Classtivity’s CEO and founder Payal Kadakia sums up the business’s philosophy succinctly: “Because finding a class shouldn’t be harder than taking one.”
