YORKVILLE welcomes the newest member to the community: SoulCycle at 55 Avenue Rd.!

Described variously as a life-changing phenomenon, an exercise movement, a party on wheels, a fitness cult (in a good way), SoulCycle set its sights on making fitness a health- and spirit-conscious experience.

‘‘With inspirational instructors, candlelight, epic spaces, and rocking music, riders can let loose, clear their heads and empower themselves with strength that lasts beyond the studio walls.‘‘

Along with cycling, the classes are designed to deliver a full-body workout, with weights and core work choreographed to a fabulous playlist and led by inspired and inspirational instructors. The real key, however, to SoulCycle‘ s phenomenal success, is the dynamic of community/soul connection that is generated by invoking the joy in doing with others! It is guaranteed to transform your relationship to exercise.

‘‘Each class focuses on rhythm and ‘energy of the pack,‘ which builds a strong bond between riders.‘‘  ‘‘Set in a dark candlelit room to high-energy music, our riders move in unison … and follow the signature choreography of our instructors.‘‘

To attest to its phenomenal popularity, SoulCycle has over 80 studios across North America, hosting 16,000 riders daily! And it has appealed to its share of celebrities: Oprah, Madonna, Lady Gaga, David and Victoria Beckham.

‘‘Riders take classes to release stress, tone muscle, find joy in movement and change their bodies and lives.‘‘

SoulCycle has reinvented the wheel so I will point you in the direction of their excellent website. There you will find profiles of instructors and members, comprehensive details about classes, and enticing, informative bits and pieces under their key headings of Soul Inspiration, Feed Your Soul, Soul Wellness, Art & Soul, and Soulstyle.

SoulCycle’s Invitation:

‘‘The best part: We do it together, as a community. Are you ready? ‘‘
