New York ClassPassers, how often do you finish a workout class only to realize you’re starving? Lucky for you, these studios understand that your stomach is grumbling and your muscles need proper nutrition to recover after a sweat-inducing session. The solution? In-studio cafes that offer menus packed with natural, good-for-you superfoods. Consider one of these studios the next time you sign up for a class in NYC.
Before you start your workout, put in an order at the Fuel Bar (it’ll be ready when you get out!). The shakes, which were designed by a nutritionist, include whey and bee pollen (dubbed the new superfood) to work in conjunction with your post-workout metabolism. Not into shakes? The cafe also stocks other healthy foods like protein bars that you can take on the go.
This yoga-barre studio and community space in Williamsburg is centered on the idea of empowering the feminine in everybody with movement classes and educational experiences for accessible, sustainable wellness. Class-goers are encouraged to use the free Wi-Fi, work tables and couches before or after class to share a snack, relax and interact with fellow yogis off the mat.
From cycling and surfing (no ocean, but there’s sand!) to zumba and barre, you’re sure to find a class that fits your style at this studio located right on the Hudson River. Plus, you can finish it off with a salad, grain bowl or juice from the in-club Fresh&Co cafe.
One of the largest and oldest yoga centers in the country, this studio opened an all-vegan cafe nearly 10 years ago. Jivamuktea offers a peaceful ambience—a stark contrast from its home in the heart of Union Square—with delicious soups, sandwiches, salads, bowls and desserts.
This SoHo studio, known for its meditative yoga classes, now includes the Supernatural WOOM Café. You can extend your zen experience with a variety of natural offerings like superfood products, personalized natural prescriptions and herbal teas.
