Vashtie teamed up with HYPEBAE for a sit down with Sarah Larson Levey, owner of hip- hop yoga studio Y7. Sarah first opened the space alongside her husband back in 2013, and it’s been expanding ever since, both in locations and members — the likes of 50 Cent and Rae Sremmurd have attended, for example.
“Sweat drippin’, beat bumpin’, candlelit yoga” is the name of Y7′s game. Each heated, 60-minute class combines vinyasa with hip-hop music, so you might hear Drake, Kanye West or any of your other favorite artists as you flow hard and work to center yourself within.
After recently opening a new space in the Upper East Side HYPEBAE tagged along with Vashtie, who’s equal parts hip-hop-loving and health-conscious, to take a tour and a class. Watch her chat with Sarah to talk music, practicing yoga in safe spaces and where Y7 is headed next above.
