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 instagram.com/cordero.by.

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. drsmood.com

Downward Facing Decanter

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! yogaunwined.com

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! corepoweryoga.com

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! sassclassnyc.com
