LOVE yoga at B Yoga!
I truly can?t say enough positive things about B Yoga. I have practiced yoga sporadically over the years at various studios in NYC and elsewhere, but as soon as I found B Yoga in April 2008 (on Citysearch), I was instantly hooked. I feel like I am going into withdrawal if I don?t show up there 3 or 4x a week. :-) I have taken classes from about 10 of the teachers and they are all consistently excellent: inspiring, safe, challenging (depending upon the class level) ? and it is obvious that they care about their students, as they make an effort to get to know everyone. Won?t mention each teacher individually, but must mention Elizabeth, the founder/owner ? she is fantastic and very passionate about the studio. She sets a welcoming and focused tone.

A few highlights:
-The atmosphere is fun, friendly, low-key and peaceful. I used to get pretty stressed out by the crowds and competition at some other well-known studios in NYC ? none of that here.
-Tons of classes and wide range of levels (from just beginning to very advanced).
-Prices are very reasonable.
-Classes are never overcrowded and the studio seems to attract a really nice community of students.
-Great ?extras? ? B Yoga hosts concerts, workshops, etc. For example, I attended a ?Yoga & Massage? workshop one Sunday evening ? what could be better?! Also the yoga with live music is great? their website is frequently updated with new events.
-The space is serene, light, clean, comfortable ? a gorgeous classic high-ceilinged loft.
My only suggestion ? wish there was a 6:30am class so I could get my ?fix? before work (however there is a daily 7am meditation and 7:30-8:30am practice for days when I can get to work a bit later).
Overall, I highly recommend B Yoga!
