This popular yoga spot in the West Village offers hot yoga classes, with or without music. Modo's sweaty program combines hot yoga with the precision of therapeutic yoga and the foundation of traditional yoga. They offer classes all-day long and accept drop-ins for $20. It's a small space that attracts a youngish crowd that fills virtually all classes. Member Marcelline says she has been doing it over a year and it has helped her lose 54 pounds and “has changed my life [and] attitude.”
