Yoga. Coffee. Massage. Music. Art. That’s a lot of intersections. At SuTRA Midtown Yoga, body-mind awareness includes giving that third eye some new meditation options. Every month, the studio hosts an art opening for a local artist, complete with music and wine tasting. Even the studio prides itself on a fusion approach to its yoga instruction.
The business side is totally solid. Yoga “tastings” are a clever and fun way to get people involved, giving potential students an opportunity to take unlimited classes. The studios are artfully designed, with a definite urban hipster vibe (in this case, not a bad thing). The quality of the art displayed fluctuates, but it’s cool that a local business is completely focused on getting out the talent of local artists—synergy, folks.
Currently, Gabe Richesson and Daniel Sheperd are exhibiting works at SuTRA. Richesson’s work focuses on psychedelic and surreal imagery with its roots firmly planted in underground culture.
SuTRA’s art openings are coordinated with First Fridays. You can wait until January, or you could schedule a post-holiday fusion massage, with some artwork viewing as dessert. Face it, you really don’t need to eat more fudge and cookies.
