Goodyoga, North Brooklyn’s oldest established Yoga studio, has served Greenpoint and Bushwick’s 500+ annual members since 2009. Following a brief but popular Williamsburg Pop Up at The Wythe Hotel a couple years back, what “might be New York’s Most successful homegrown yoga studio” (well+good) FINALLY establishes a flagship studio just a block away from the Lorimer L / Metropolitan G stop, at 628 Metropolitan Avenue.
With two practice spaces, a large sunlit lounge and tea garden, Goodburg affords members from all neighborhoods greater breadth of programming during prime times, including a GoodThai Massage Certification (!!!), Goodmind Meditation practice, and Good4U Personal Sessions.
Start with a Goodintro, 4 weeks for $40! New, local students get a month of unlimited classes for the price of just 2 drop ins. A weekly class is all you need to gain value from the generous Goodyear membership that follows. Goodyoga members enjoy unlimited classes for $75 per month when you commit to a year of weekly practice. That’s less than the price of a weekly class!
Don’t worry, you can pause your membership at no cost for a minimum of 2 weeks for up to a total of 2 months annually. Membership has countless other benefits, like vast discounts on the G200 Teacher Training, also offered at Goodburg. When you sign up with your boo(s) or bestie(s) on a single credit card, you save an additional $5 each! The family that plays together…
Goodyoga is the only studio in the area that requires all teachers to have 500 hours of certification. That’s 300 more than most. You’ll find a variety of styles and levels, but the language across the curriculum remains consistent. Most of the team teaches at all studios. You can easily follow your favorites from location to location with your Goodyear membership.
According to Founder Flannery Foster, Goodyoga offers “alignment focused vinyasa in the lineage of Krishnamacharya, which includes my teachers, Srivatsa Ramaswami and the Mohan family, as well as BKS Iyengar, the guy who brought mats, blocks and straps into popular use and Patthabi Jois who popularized the Mysore Ashtanga Sequence that Krishnamacharya offered him.”
The studios are independently owned, incubated by the bootstraps in the founder’s former guesthouse in Greenpoint. According to Foster, Goodyoga’s Mission Statement is simple, “Goodyoga is committed to community.” As an expression of that commitment she offers free Meditation sessions at Goodburg every Saturday, hour for hour work exchange for classes and even hosts #singforyoursupper jazz jam session at the Greenpoint Reformed Church’s weekly Wednesday FREE community meal, to which all are welcome to volunteer or donate.
ALL of Goodyoga’s beautiful spaces are available for their member’s activism, art and entrepreneurship on a sliding scale. Contact [email protected] or text/call 929.399.GURU for more information or to offer ideas for collaboration.
