If you’ve ever been to Nyack in Rockland County, you can’t miss the plethora of yoga studios. In fact, this sweet hippy town, is deemed the birthplace of Yoga in the United States, and there’s one chic boutique yoga fitness studio that is sure to catch your eye!

That is…SoulFLYTE.

Located at 13 South Broadway, this cool, somewhat new studio is the hotspot for antiGravity, aerial yoga, and even barre classes. Yesssss…my fellow warriors, this is your chance to fly!

With warm welcomes and excellent customer service, I had the opportunity to take an antiGravity decompression class, and my experience was nothing short of AMAZING! I’ve taken other aerial classes around the area, but SoulFLYTE, is hands down, one of the top studios outside of Manhattan. It’s got that down to earth, bohemian vibe with decor that instantly soothes the mind and a schedule packed with a variety of classes; easily becoming your next fitness obsession.

I took a Wednesday morning class with Laurie and if I had closed my eyes the entire time, I could have gone through the motions with her precise instructions. Her on-point teaching style helped ease me through each of the sequences and positions without a glitch. Although with some practice and time, I’m sure I’d be able to slip through the movements more eloquently, but from the start, I felt comfortable, relaxed and by the end of the class, invigorated!

The 75-minute session was a mixture of traditional floor yoga poses intertwined into the silk hammocks, along with a short meditation at the end. From downward dog to handstands and spider poses, each pose is performed either inside the hammock, which supports the weight of your body 100%, or performed on the floor while hanging onto the hammock. What i loved most about this class, was the gradual building of the upside down positions. For someone like me, who sometimes suffers from motion sickness, I didn’t experience any. I went with the flow of the instructed movements, giving my body the incredible deep stretch and relaxation it so deserved and like Laurie said, I got to see the world upside down!
