Welcome to Workout Wednesday, where every hump-day we'll be rounding up some of the city's hottest fitness trends and studios.
Yoga Vida via Well + Good NYC
With prices for boutique fitness classes creeping into the high-$30s, one workout that's (relatively) resisted inflation is yoga. There are still a handful of places in the city where you can take a class for as little as five bucks, and several others where you can get away with paying $8 or $12.
Check out the list of studios where drop-in rates are no more than $16, plus a list of good first-time client deals (like Sonic Yoga's $30 for 30 days of unlimited yoga). Have a favorite that didn't make it on here? If you're willing to share it with the world, leave it in the comments and we'll add it to the list.
