New York: it’s a sea of busy bustle, where your time and sometimes days seem to fly by in a blur of the moment.
If you’re new to the Big Apple’s concrete jungle or just on a holiday, travelling from one place to another can sometimes take hours, and hailing a cab during high peak times (which is the most of the day) is just un-attainable.
The frantic pace just doesn’t seem to escape you, following you around every corner and moment. Finding the time to visit a studio so you can just be still on your mat and wind down from the day can often become a hard and tiresome task. The trick is to know where to go and planning your time ahead – and that’s where Sky Ting Yoga falls perfectly onto your map. It’s a New York yoga studio that ticks all of the ‘escape and recharge’ boxes.
Located downtown in China Town, sitting high on the fourth floor is Sky Ting Yoga. It’s a bright, airy and serene New York yoga studio founded by partners Krissy Jones (who is also a Nike Trainer) and Chloe Kernaghan. Step inside Sky Ting and immediately all the busyness that was sitting (waiting to explode) inside you just seems to dissolve peacefully away.
This yoga studio radiates beautiful energy and thanks to the founders and its teachers, the practice you do there just seals the calming energy that’s been instilled into you.
It’s this very reason that Sky Ting Yoga has developed a loyal and strong following and why this studio has been widely written about. It contains two studios (one being for private lessons), a retail area, a fridge full of nutritious snacks and a rooftop area to take in all the views. Trust me, Sky Ting Yoga is the place to be still.
Sky Ting Yoga incorporates into their practice a medley of lineages from all different styles. It’s also what makes them unique to give a new yet refined and rich practice. They borrow from traditions such as Katonah, Taoist, Hatha and Vinyasa, as well as several different meditation and breathing practices that help create the most passionate, responsive and nurturing learning experience for their students.
A truly beautiful and serene experience, Sky Ting Yoga is a must-visit for anyone who needs to escape the hustle, bustle and busyness of New York City.
