Profile

Yoga class in Julia Frodahl’s loft turned yoga studio on a gritty Williamsburg street is like exercising in the charming attic of someone’s adorably stylish grandma. There’s a maple-brown grand piano, a tufted leather couch, vintage-looking wallpaper, and perfectly curated clusters of objects like feathers, flowers, crystals, and wire baskets. Small class sizes afford lots of personal attention (the room only holds twelve comfortably). Though there are two beginners classes offered, most sessions are at the open level and this can present a problem for true beginners—the names of poses are often called out in Sanskrit and might leave those new to the game a little behind. For students with a foundation of yoga knowledge, the 90-minute sessions cruise by as poses move swiftly. Watch out for Oliver—the resident hairless cat might distract by playing with the strings of a hooded sweatshirt left near your mat. In addition to group classes, one-on-one sessions are available, and beyond yoga there are monthly dinners, occasional foraging retreats, and periodic teacher trainings.

Pros

It’s a pleasure to be in such a preciously decorated space—the scene is both calming and inspiring.

Cons
Newbies may have trouble catching on to the moderate pace of the class, and the schedule is sparse so it can be difficult to fit into a busy week.
