ORA Acupuncture
264 Butter Ln., Bridgehampton
We all commit and re-commit to self-care: working out, acupuncture, twenty minutes of daily meditation. But, like everyone else, we’re fighting against the clock, day in day out. ORA differs from other wellness services in the area because they come to you. Throughout the summer, pre-book a session and reap the benefits of acupuncture, gua sha, and cupping from the comfort of your home. If you do feel like venturing out, visit the ORA pop-up at the Soul Cycle Barn or, when city-bound, dip into their NoHo location.
Hampton Library
2478 Main St., Bridgehampton
Bridgehampton’s family-focused library has gone all in on online programming. From classic story time to Toddlers’ Twist and Shout to movie nights, there’s a packed schedule with plenty of recurring events to work into kids’ weekly schedules. For older children and teens, there are Netflix watch parties and virtual college prep sessions, not to mention conversational Spanish classes. And if you’re looking to get some fresh air and a change of scenery, the library yard is open to the public for socially distanced strolling. In the library yard, masks are required, and social distancing precautions are in place. The library building is open by appointment only—call for an appointment and fill out this form.

A converted barn in Bridgehampton is the home of SoulCycle’s latest endeavor, SoulAnnex—classes that take things off the bike and onto the mat. But don’t think that means sessions are easy—they’re still taught by SoulCycle’s high-energy, motivating instructors that regulars have come to know and trust. Classes include Torch’d, which uses body resistance, free weights, and dance for a strength-focused workout, and Housework, a Pilates-meets-high-intensity-cardio session. But there’s also Reset, a forty-five-minute guided meditation class that’s all about stillness, peace, and tranquility, and Le Stretch, meant to lengthen and relax worn-out muscles and joints.
Market Art + Design
The Bridgehampton Museum, 2368 Montauk Hwy., Bridgehampton
Sixty-five contemporary art galleries from around the world (including New York's Absolut Art, London's Kahn gallery, and Paris's Nil gallery) are setting up temporary outposts on the grounds of the Bridgehampton Museum for this four-day art fair (running July 5 to 8 only), the biggest in the Hamptons. In addition to exploring work that spans over 55,000 square feet of exhibition space, ticket holders can sit in on furniture and design presentations and break for Aperol spritzes and fresh oysters, served on site.
The Class by Taryn Toomey (Closed)
264 Butter Ln., Bridgehampton
Taryn Toomey has finally made it to the Hamptons, setting up shop in a light-filled barn in Bridgehampton. The vaguely named class is hard to define exactly, but you can expect this: seventy-five minutes of intense movement, which includes screaming, shaking, and yelling to release emotional energy. You will get a pretty incredible workout in the process, thanks to the burpees, planks, leg lifts, and squats thrown in. There’s also a fair bit of yoga, for good measure. Fans of Toomey’s new Tribeca studio will notice the same attention to detail in Bridgehampton: bronze light fixtures by Kelly Wearstler and crystal lighting by Christopher Boots throughout the whitewashed space, set off by the signature scent of palo santo. For those who want to release emotional energy in private, house calls are available. Photos: Jaimie Baird
