Whether you live on the east coast or not, you’ve likely heard Hurricane Sandy aka Frankenstorm! <lightning crash> is coming to ruin our cities and Halloween plans. It’s not even the worst yet, and the shore is already getting pummeled by 60-85 mph damaging winds, crazy flooding is already an issue, many people have lost power and NYC is virtually shut down, with schools, businesses, the subways and yes, most yoga studios all closed. Mayor Bloomberg has advised everyone to stay the eff inside and ride out this megastorm.
But hey, what if you wanted to get in a little hurricane power workout or need to take a class? We received emails from the general managers of Equinox and partner Pure Yoga saying “We’re Open!” and asking us to “Make Pure Yoga your safe haven.” No they’re not opening up their gyms and studios as safe harbors and evacuation centers.
Make Pure Yoga your safe haven from Hurricane Sandy. We invite you for three days of open classes from October 28 through October 31. Be sure to call the studio (212) 360-1888 to reserve your spot.
Our studios will be open normal business hours today and tomorrow. We urge you to check the class schedules for any cancellations.
General Manager, Pure East
Last August, Hurricane Irene didn’t stop us from delivering an unparalleled experience; Hurricane Sandy won’t either. We are open regular hours today and tomorrow and invite you to come in for a complimentary workout.
Of course, we take safety seriously, and as such, we are operating with leaner staff. Please use your judgment while traveling.
We hope to see you in the club!
In Good Health,
OMG, complimentary! Yes, despite the fact that it puts those brave and/or kooky enough to head out in the storm in danger, employees in harms way and first-responders at an increased risk, Equinox and Pure will provide your workout fix!
Helpful or irresponsible? You tell us.
And for the love of flying yoga debris, be smart and be safe everyone.
