We found Healhaus via one of our Brooklyn-based staffers who can’t get enough of its wellness-forward programming. Founders Darian Hall and Elisa Shankle left corporate careers to found this much-needed, accessible, integrated space for healing. While the physical location is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, Healhaus’s streaming offering is seriously robust. Check out workshops on breathwork for trauma and yoni care, plus Zoom vinyasa classes, de-stressing meditations, Reiki, and chakra clearing. Private sessions in energy healing, holistic medicine, doula support, and teletherapy are also available.

Brooklyn Yoga Club
206 Vanderbilt Ave., Clinton Hill
Beloved yoga teacher Eddie Stern officially opened his new studio space, Brooklyn Yoga Club, in a cozy Clinton Hill townhouse on Vanderbilt Avenue. A studio and meditation space occupy the ground floor of the townhouse, where Stern leads a practice based on the teachings of Ashtanga master Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. The primarily self-paced classes encourage independence and self-reliance; students work through each series at their own speed, closely observed by Stern. There’s also a heavy emphasis on meditation, breath, and detoxification. After class, students can hang out in the first-floor library, café, and the wide outdoor deck, where the studio builds community: The café serves coffee, tea, juice, and vegetarian food, the deck is home to a compost and garden, and the library shelves are stocked with books about yoga and self-discovery. The second floor of the townhouse is home to a co-working space with a few designated desks and a community table. That floor also has a kitchen, for vegetarian and Ayurvedic cooking classes and one-off workshops, like “How to Make Your Own Apple Cider Vinegar,” or “How To Make Your Own Kimchi.” Out-of-town visitors can stay…
Bindle & Keep
This Brooklyn-based suiting shop is the subject of a Lena Dunham-produced HBO documentary coming out this fall (we’re eagerly counting down the days). The concept is to create bespoke suiting for all genders. Not only are their suits tailored with the finest craftsmanship, they’re also filling an enormous gap in the wedding market by creating a bespoke, fitted suiting option for women and non-gender-conforming people, who—for myriad reasons—are not interested in a traditional wedding dress.
