GOODPOINT BRINGS YOGA TO NEW HEIGHTS

By Meghan Cass | April 22, 2010

Be it bars, beehives or urban farms, in Greenpoint everything is better on a roof. And now yoga can be practiced en plain air at local arts complex Goodpoint, which hosts clandestine classes on a rooftop studio three stories above Calyer Street.

Although a handful of the alignment-based Vinyasa classes are held on the rooftop throughout the day at this Greenpoint yoga studio, you're often able to see the sun setting over the Manhattan skyline at the 8 p.m. class. The Thursday-night session, taught by the studio's founder, Flannery Foster, includes live music.

The Juice is Loose!

By Carlos Escobar | February 9, 2011

So what's going on right now? Well, the juice is loose! I'm endeavoring to take on a 28 day juice cleanse. Just after New Years I successfully managed a 7 day cleanse that involved 3 days of juicing. Frankly, I've been eating so clean that it hardly felt like a struggle at all, but of course, struggling isn't the point.

By Ravi Kumar | October 25, 2011

If a pair of strangers had not met on New Years Eve of 2009, Good Yoga would not exist in Greenpoint.

That night, Flannery Foster, 33, went to a party at the apartment of Ray Gonazales, 34. The apartment looked like a loft with white walls and a skylight illuminating the rooms. “ I joked with Ray that this place will make a good yoga center,” said Foster.

Katrina Hybenova | January 17, 2013

You would expect anything but the sweet smell of burning incense when you get off the L train on the Jefferson stop. But the smell only grows stronger as you walk up the steps to Wyckoff Ave and, we assure you, you are not imagining it. The incense belongs to Good Yoga that opened in December 2012 in Bushwick.

Meet Teacher Flannery Foster

By Carly Sachs | April 19, 2013

Balancing Life, Yoga And Business From A Brooklyn Rooftop

In our hustle-bustle city , things happen fast. It seemed the same was true for Brooklyn-based Good Yoga; all of the sudden they had three studios in Greenpoint, Clinton Hill, and Bushwick.  After talking to Flannery Foster who co-owns them, Carly Sachs found out that what made it seem so fast and effortlessly put together was the luck of finding the perfect partner (romantically and otherwise) who had the same clear intentions and conscious sense of the community for creating a studio.  Then they went at it!

Free Yoga in North Brooklyn Parks all Summer!!!

By Gina | June 5, 2014

Is there anything less appealing than a sweaty yoga indoor class in 80 degree weather? Nothing against Yoga to the People (they will always hold a special place in my heart), but I’d much rather get some fresh air in my system while the weather is fine.

By Esme Hoffman | May 17, 2016

If you’ve been to Goodyoga, you know they’re doing something right. Their app makes class sign-up easy, their down-to-earth teachers blend alignment with humor, and their prices beat everywhere else.
