Tribeca Health & Beauty

Health & Beauty neighborhood
Sky Ting Yoga
381 W. Broadway, Tribeca
While we loved the original Chinatown location, Sky Ting's second space in Tribeca is as dreamy a spot to shop as it is to workout. The merch spans adaptogenic powders from Moon Juice, products from health mecca CAP Beauty, and one of our favorite newer beauty lines Benshen (founded by fashion journalist turned yogi Desirée Pais, who, frustrated with the market started whipping up herbal skin care in her kitchen). Aside from the roster of yoga classes (for those of us working all-day al-desko, try the restorative class for deep hip openers and stretching), this new airy space has the added benefit of a built-in infrared sauna to maximize the post-sweat glow.
The Class
22 Park Place, 3rd Floor, Tribeca
This is one of those fitness situations that evades basic definition: Started by Taryn Toomey, it's a self-titled cathartic experience, where you spend 75 minutes engaging in intense movement to “break open and activate ‘stagnant’ layers in the body.” In short you move, and scream, and shake, and yell as you release emotional energy–and get a pretty incredible workout in the process. It requires an open mind and a willing spirit. Photo Credit: Jaimie Baird
The Class by Taryn Toomey
22 Park Place, Tribeca
“The Class” is a workout like no other: People regularly laugh, cry, and scream during it, so intense is the release (not to mention the workout itself). Developed by former Dior exec Taryn Toomey, the 75-minute session is an exhilarating mix of yoga, aerobics, and strength training as well as chanting and mental work). In addition to sculpted muscles (Toomey’s incredible body is the best advertisement) and an excellent dose of cardio, the aim is to free yourself from “the sludge,” as Toomey says, meaning everything that weighs you down, both emotionally and physically.
Tracy Anderson Method Tribeca
271 Church St., Tribeca
In a brand-new, three-floor space in Tribeca, you'll find Tracy Anderson's New York City empire: There are studios here, along with many of her apparatuses, where you can do your custom muscular structure workout or dance cardio. This location offers membership, pay per class, as well as private training sessions. If huffing it to the studio isn't an option, there's always the wallet-friendly live-streaming version wallet-friendly streaming option, where you can take classes from the comfort of your own living room. There's a second 6,000-square-foot location uptown on 59th Street housed in a former movie theater.
