New York’s OG hip hop yoga studio is expanding in LA. After débuting on the West Coast with its Melrose outpost back in 2016, Y7 Studio kicked off the new year by bringing its mirrorless candlelit yoga workouts and minimalist-cool atmosphere to Silver Lake. Landing not far from Sunset Junction, Y7’s second LA location has arrived right across the street from the whitewashed former Bates Motel and down the way from equally stylish Dinosaur coffee and the iconic Elliott Smith wall.
On the sched, yogis will find much more than just Y7’s signature 60-minute, sweat-inducing flows. In addition to the Vinyasa, which focuses on sequences of mindful movements to help stretch and rejuvenate the body, and the Slow Burn, which “works toward not only reaching our edge, but surpassing it” (translation: intense), the Silver Lake location will feature a new Core class and exclusive workshops. Of course, all workouts are backed by a playlist powered by hip hop and gangsta rap, which will be blared on a state-of-the-art sound system as yogis flow in an infrared heated-room that’s warmed up to 90 degrees. (If only Tupac and Biggie could live to see the day.)
As far as amenities, the 2,500-square-foot space is the first of its kind for Y7: Inspired by California’s al fresco-obsessed vibes, the studio houses private outdoor showers that are fully stocked with Malin + Goetz products, an open-air refresh bar, an outdoor seating deck, and a boutique that stocks exclusive merch for LA fitness fiends alongside an ever-rotating lineup in its pop-up space.
Y7 newbies can try out three workouts for $45, which includes rentals. Regular pricing ranges from $25 for a single class to $210 for a 10-class package to $440 for 25 classes; unlimited memberships are $179 per month to $1,899 for a year. Rentals are $2 for Manduka yoga mats and $3 for skidless Manduka yoga towels.
