Hey queens, this week, “By the Way” is going on a health kick with a hot spot to detox, yoga (with and without wine), and a dance class that turns students into music video stars. If you like what you see, watch it unfold day by day on insta at

Detox Your Socks Off

Dr. Smoods
Dr Smood: For those of you who did a “detox January” we’ve got a little something to help with February too – hey, summer bodies get made in the winter, right!? Dr Smood offers everything from detox juices to healthy meals to tips on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. With several locations throughout the island (including Midtown East, SoHo, and NoMad), you’ll rarely find yourself far from a healthy pick-me-up. Oh, and because of the free wi-fi (are your ears perking up, millenials?) you can also set up shop and work on that novel you’ve been dying to finish — or just check in on your dating apps.

Yoga Unwined: But if you — no worries! Here’s a way to blend mind, body, soul… and wine! POSE + LEARN + SIP Yoga Unwined classes bring together vinyasa-based yoga and fun with wine facts through creative yoga poses. Each hour-long educational class ends with a meditative wine tasting, inviting you to mindfully taste what’s in your glass while applying what you learned through the poses. Yasss!

CorePower Yoga: For those of you looking to take your yoga (rather than your blood alcohol) to the next level, CorePower Yoga has two studios — one on the UWS and one in Williamsburg, and often hosts free pop-up classes throughout the city. CorePower offers a range of training styles all the way up to those looking to become pros; if you’re seeking certification, they offer a foundational 8 week, 200 -Hour Programs in Power Yoga, Hot Power Fusion or Hot Yoga!

Who Run the World?

Sass Class
SassClass is an empowerment-centric dance class and studio for those who identify as women that transforms its attendees into dance video queens through unique programs such as “Sexy Stilettos”, “Burlesque”, “Fierce Feminine Hip-Hop” and the newest additions — “Chairography” and “Empowered Expression”. What really makes SassClass shine (in addition to its confidence-building core) is its dance video element: participants have the opportunity to be in an actual, professionally-made dance video working it like Beyoncé, Madonna or whatever dance superstar they want to channel. Get those heels on and get ready for a fun night in the city!
