How does going to a nightclub for Yoga classes sound? Pretty neat, right? This is the upcoming New York party scene trend.
When a friend asks me: “Do you want to go out tonight to nightclub?" or "Let's go for Happy Hour after work?” they clearly mean some cool party or a great place in town for drinks.
In New York, a “trendsetter” type of city, these questions can exceed the obvious understanding. Now, you can go to nightclubs that offer yoga classes in the middle of a huge dance floor, paired with an amazing DJ, shinning disco balls or even a rave party BEFORE work!
Here, we list which are best places to visit and how to hit the gym, expecting "alcohol and drugs free” rave parties to start your day!
The new trend is asking for kombucha tea "in da club", rather than the traditional Martini with double olives.
1) Deep House Yoga - Located in the delightful neighborhood of Williamsburg, the famous nightclub, Verboten, offers few days a week, at 6:30pm, yoga classes in the middle of the club's dance floor. Listening to deep house music, with Lululemon mats, drinking smoothies and coconut water is a taste of what to expect during this experience. The class costs $20.
2) No Lights, No Lycra - The No Lights, No Lyra community started in 2009 in Melbourne, Australia, and soon expanded into 30 cities around the globe. In New York, the event is held in the basement of a church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The only light comes from the laser machines that creates a green thread, offering only sufficient illumination to prevent accidents along your way. No one is worried about what they are wearing, what makeup they have on or if you’re with the lastest fashion "must-have” bag. Every Tuesday guests dance to the sound of different genres: from electronic music, to the unforgettable Michael Jackson for over 1 hour (from 8h15pm to 9h30pm). The result? They’re all sweaty and in ecstasy! It costs $5 to get in, then...dance to your limit!
3) Daybreaker - Have you thought of starting off your day going to a Rave party ... before work!? Daybreaker is a day party that starts before 7am, serving fresh juices to the sound of electronic music, yoga classes, spoken poetry performances and live bands. It has a bit of everything, minus the alcohol and drugs! The Founders, Matt Brimer and Radha Agrawal explain: “It's all about love, it is about mindfulness, and it is about mischief. It's a 100% sober rave (our style for sure!), where the only thing people get high on is life." To get more information, register on the website, because everything is communicated through email. Oh! The event does not happen only in New York. It's also hosted in cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington DC, London, Berlin, Tel Aviv, Tokyo and several others!
4) Morning Gloryville NYC - This event is also for the early-birds who like to wake up early and start the day at full speed! At Morning Gloryfille NYC you can expect lots of music that'll surely awaken your soul, sexy beats, a lot of love, hugs and … a great double espresso! Inspired by the traditional rave parties, the Founders innovated the concept and created an event with massage stations and professional therapists, various smoothies made with “superfoods", a juice bar, a coffee kiosk, an incredible dance team who makes you sweat it off, some of the most talented DJ’s in New York City and the perfect dance floor! Take a look at this video so you’ll get the feeling on what to expect. For information on the next event, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org!
