This high-end, state-of-the-art studio offers hot yoga classes, meditation, workshops, wellness services, kirtan, teacher trainings, and a fashionable boutique. Despite the luxurious amenities (including spa-worthy bathrooms and a style bar with onsite stylist), I assure you the studio is keeping it real with monthly themes to complement the essence of the ancient yogic teachings and an emphasis on the three pillars of Tantris Yoga: Daily Practice, Devotional Study, and Karmic Duty.
Co-founder Russell Simmons brings his passion for yoga to Tantris. He is a devoted yogi who cares about shifting the collective consciousness through sharing the benefits of a yogic lifestyle. He says, “As an activist, entrepreneur, philanthropist and vegan, yoga and meditation has changed my life in so many ways. I wanted to open a space where I can share what is a part of me and what has inspired me for the past two decades. The goal is to create an educational environment for the wellness community, as well as attract and influence a new audience to pursue a more conscious lifestyle.”
Tantris includes two infrared-heated yoga studios with surround sound, natural light, and partially mirrored studio walls as well as a beautiful deity of Lakshmi (goddess of wealth, fortune, and prosperity), and a devotional wall illustrating epic scenes from Vedic culture. Boost your energy at the juice bar, relax in the cozy lounge with city views, and even have your car parked by onsite valet (with discounted validation).
Affordable monthly memberships, class series, and drop-ins are all available. I recommend this studio to beginners as well as avid practitioners and teachers.
