Just in time for the warm weather to return, Equinox x Sky-High Yoga is back at the gates of New York. At sunrise, a few dozen yogis and morning enthusiasts will be able to push their limits 1,100 feet above Manhattan’s Hudson Yards, on the highest outdoor terrace in the Western Hemisphere, for the third consecutive year.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer New Yorkers a unique experience that combines fitness with incredible views of New York City,” Jason Horkin, vice president of Hudson Yards experiences, told WWD. He added that the partnership “has been extremely popular since we first offered courses in September 2020”.

So much so that all of the classes on offer sold out the same day the tickets went on sale. This year’s class schedule, which begins on May 11, should be no different.

45-minute classes start at 6:30 a.m. at 30 Hudson Yards and cost $50 per class. Additional classes will take place on the mornings of May 18 and 25. Although an end date for this year’s season has yet to be set, the 2021 Sky-High Yoga classes ran until September last year.

New York’s Hudson Yards — which opened in March 2019 as one of the nation’s largest private developments – was designed as a commercial, residential and cultural space intended to attract visitors and residents to Manhattan’s West Side with upscale shopping, dining, living and entertainment new experiences. The pandemic and subsequent lockdown have forced businesses and brands in the region to pivot.

Meanwhile, private luxury fitness company Equinox Group is estimated to be worth more than $7 billion. The company, which has offices in Hudson Yards, includes several brands that play in the fitness, hospitality, experience and apparel spaces, such as Equinox, Equinox Hotels, SoulCycle, Pure Yoga, Blink Fitness and Moreover.
