WILLIAMSBURG—Neighborhood favorite Species by the Thousands is expanding into education with fashion- and design-related classes. Up next is their Cranberry Dye Workshop, where students can dye two silk scarves (and keep them!) for just $30. Reserve a spot for this one-hour class on February 12 at 8pm here. [RackedWire]
UES/UWS—Pure Yoga is now offering a conditioning class called PXT at both of their studios. Meant to complement their current yoga and barre offerings, PXT classes mix high-intensity cardio intervals, strength training, plyometrics, and more for a crazy 60-minute calorie burn. Learn more about the class and its schedule here. [RackedWire]
SOHO—Strip: Ministry of Waxing is launching a special "flavor" of wax for Valentine's Day, and if you can guess correctly what it is, they'll give you a free Brazilian treatment. (And just to be crystal clear, you do not eat the wax.) So far, they've already done chocolate, lavender, gingerbread, and strawberry, so it won't be one of those. Just head to their Facebook and place your guess in the comments, or tweet it at @StripNYC with #MysteryWax to enter. [RackedWire]
