Throughout a month or year of unlimited classes, yoga gurus can flit between the plethora of classes offered each week, bending and stretching in the York Avenue location's Vinyasa classes—which connects breathing and movement through a series of flowing poses that build strength and stamina and defuse frenzied inner monologues—or the 85th Street location's Vinyasa-based hot-yoga classes. The hot-yoga studio is maintained at 105 degrees, complete with skin-coating humidity designed to limber up tendons, purge the body's toxins, and chase away any ice sprites squatting in pants pockets.

With more than three dozen instructors leading 130 classes each week, New York Yoga and New York Hot has it all! The classic-vinyasa-yoga and hot-flow-yoga classes are split between two separate studios, ensuring its throngs of beginner and advanced students have enough room to really stretch out and grow. The separation also allows the 85th and Lexington location to keep itself programmed to 105 degrees at all times, helping students boost their stamina and challenge their practice. The York and 86th street studio offers a comfortable "regular temperature" room and more options for beginners; including basics, gentle, and restorative classes that forgo strenuous physical exertion in favor of a slow, calming practice.
