New York’s Coolest Pilates Studio Features DJ-Curated Playlists
Before I maneuvered my body into the (admittedly scary looking) reformer for the first time, I assumed Pilates was for the 40-plus set, appropriate only for glamorous divorcées and high-end soccer moms. I pigeonholed the pricey workout as something that was low-impact and boring, not worth it for a 20-something trying to fit into a crop top.
Then, I tried New York Pilates. Located next door to Reformation in Soho (look for the sign with the emoji peach on it) this workout studio just might be the coolest thing that has ever happened to Pilates. Started by former former, Heather Andersen, their second studio, located on Howard Street right next to Reformation, is a modern vision of blonde wood, whitewashed exposed brick and huge windows. As such, it’s been awarded by various websites as one of New York’s most stylish workout spots. New York Pilates was originally founded in 2013 with a Washington Square location.
