We spend a lot of time at the original Love Yoga in Venice, so news of its East Side outpost was thrilling. Just like the Lincoln Boulevard space, co-yoga directors Kyle Miller and Sian Gordon have created a paradise that smells more like white sage and Diptyque candles than a sweaty yoga studio. While the studio interior has obvious appeal, the teaching is where Love Yoga really shines. The overall vibe is laid-back—no heat, no mirrors, and definitely no weights—with a meditation and Savasana built into every class. Clear direction and game-changing adjustments will make seventy-five minutes go by extraordinarily fast, though there’s nothing about this that’s easy: Expect to sweat (a lot) and to feel it the next day.
