Flatiron's latest fitness addition is Yoga Shanti, a studio based out of Sag Harbor that just debuted this week in the city. If you're looking for a truly beautiful studio to practice (and some apartment inspiration to boot), this is it: gorgeous lanterns and chandeliers light up the entire space, and the Moroccan-inspired warm iridescent walls make the studio a peaceful retreat in the middle of one of the city's busiest neighborhoods.
Design kudos go to Evan Yee and Joel Seigle, who sourced the arches, carpets, and chandeliers straight from Marrakech.
Classes range from a Beginner's Club to Self-Practice—for advanced students who choose to go at their own pace—with Open, Flow, Fundaments, Kundalini, and Urban Zen options rounding out the schedule. Regular drop-ins are $25, and they're currently offerings Founders Club Memberships for $150/a month for a limited time.
