Another power of yoga is it can be a slow flow or a high-energy heart pumper. If you’re looking for the latter, check out Y7 Studio’s Hip-Hop Wednesdays and Sundays in Los Angeles! The studio announces a featured artist of the week each Monday and then centers the 60-minute vinyasa around them. Recent hip-hop classes have featured Gucci Mane and Brockhampton!
