Not sure where to show off those Alexander Wang x H&M sweats and boxing gloves? Two health goth havens, Monster Cycle and Y7 Yoga have teamed up to create one vast, moody sanctuary for sweating in leather, Well + Good reports. Starting today, the Williamsburg yoga studio will operate inside Monster's Soho location, which opened last summer.

Every day, Y7 will offer six classes at $22 each (including hip-hop themed yoga), and though it has its own check-in desk, it's located within Monster Cycle's Lafayette Street home.

Where does the goth-ness come in? For starters, Monster Cycle tends to play very NSFW music videos during classes and adorns its walls with leather straps (plus a current installation by noted bad bitch designer Zana Bayne).

Said Sarah LaBier of Monster Cycle: "Where else can you go and cycle to a Calvin Harris-themed video ride then head upstairs to a hip-hop yoga class?" Indeed.
