    Great yoga spot. $2 to rent a mat and the class is donation based. Come at least 20 min early to get a good spot. Each class varies in difficulty so be ready for a surprise!

    Love it here! Get there at least 15 minutes early to get a good spot. The classes in the morning and afternoon work up a mild sweat, but from 6 o'clock on its workout time! Go then for the best sweat.

    90 minute power vinyasa on Sundays are my favorite, and NYC's best yoga bargain. Get there at least 15 minutes early, and BYO mat (though they do provide them). Pay nicely.

    My favorite yoga studio in the city. It is donation based and does not take reservations. So show up early to get a good spot. I like the 3rd floor better. Expect it to be crowded.

    most of the teachers play Coldplay and say every sentence like its a question and inform you that "humans are like, really complex." oh, the sacrifices I make for sliding scale yoga...

    Yoga is the perfect workout for college students because it's simultaneously challenging and relaxing. Don't worry about your budget at Yoga to the People – donate as much or as little as you can.

    Staying healthy is about the mind as well as the body, so here’s a great chance to exercise both! The donation-based class is appropriate for both beginners and more advanced yoga students.
