I AM You Studio


The NYC Studio is closed for repairs. Please try our famed RETOX sweat sessions on RETOX.YOGA & take them whenever, wherever you go, and are, until further notice.

Established in 2008 as NYC's first boutique yoga studio, RETOX strives to provide a 360-degree sensorial, personal, and exclusive kick-your-ass yoga experience that will rock your mind and body. Classes link breath with creative and athletic movements and thoughts that are designed for all levels. Each session features music curated by RETOX's Resident Mixologist, vintaj, and is influenced by rock&roll, hip-hop, salsa, reggae, flamenco and other rhythms from around the globe.

RETOX yoga helps you change YOU from both the outside, in, and the inside, out.  

Breathe. Move. Hold. Release. Rest. Restore. Rock Out. BE YOU.

That's RETOX.


Athletic vinyasa that is creative and funky while being strongly rooted in tradition. The classes are fast while smooth, intense while serene.  Start by connecting to your breathe and transitioning into a moving meditation that will leave you feeling strong in body & mind.  Sweat, music, breath, you. That’s what it’s all about.


Hidden in an original NYC exposed brick & wooden beamed loft, this is not your normal yoga studio, but rather a place to live in every sense of the word.  A NYC gem hailing to the days when work and art were one, where creativity and inspiration bred success. Yoga classes, DJ sessions, meditation sessions, wine tastings, dinner parties, cooking lessons, movie screenings, art showings, entreprenuerial think tanks... that's life. That's real yoga. That's RETOX. That's us.


All, from the most beginner to the most advanced.  Classes are run at a traditional Ashtanga pace, with regular led breath counts.  Variations are offered for people of all levels, and clear, precise instruction is given every step of the class. All you have to do is show up, listen, and breathe.




Our Signature Flow is a full 90 minutes of 360-degree sensorial, personal and exclusive kick-your-ass vinyasa yoga designed to rock your mind and body. Classes link breath with creative and athletic movements designed to challenge students at all levels, from the most beginner to the most advanced. Each Signature Flow session features music curated by RETOX's resident mixologist, DJ vintaj, as well as our Guest Mixologists, influenced by rock & roll, hip-hop, salsa, flamenco and other rhythms from around the globe. Think of it as a moving meditation for body, mind and life.

RETOX HOUR – 60 min

Everything you love about the Signature Flow, jam-packed in 60 sweaty minutes. 

RETOX SHOT – 45 min 

We get life is intense, and that you are overwhelmingly jammed for time.  Leave it to us to make you feel better in body, mind and life with this 45 minute version of our world famous class, in a way that lets you succeed to matter what the day throws you.


Our early morning classes are 60 transformative minutes of sweaty bliss designed to ease the transition from the stillness of morning heartbeats to the pace of the urban jungle. Slightly softer around the edges than our Signature & RETOX classes, Sunrise Sessions prepare you to greet the day with special sunrise music by our Resident Mixologist & Guests. You'll set a dedication, move, breathe and rock out, ready to hit the pavement with a glowing, intention filled smile.


Our Sunday afternoon spin on the Signature RETOX flow, Steamy Sunsets are a combination of sweat and stretch to quench our thirst for strength and sweetness. Inspired by the world-famous chill-out mixes from Ibiza's Cafe del Mar, this class is an homage to sea-side sunsets paired with beachy, chilled-out tracks. Sweat to chill, chill to breathe, breathe to be. 


Sometimes you just gotta just chill; we get it.  Our RETOX Restore sessions are designed just for that. Like all our classes, we start by connecting to the breath and dive deep into a slower flow with ample time to stretch it out, chill out, and just be.  After svasana with our signature geranium rose towels, bliss and you are one.


Few of us have an hour to meditate every day, let alone the discipline. Join us for this quick shot of meditation RETOX style to nourish you from the inside, out.  Learn to use the muscle of your mind to create the perceptions you want to have, be and live. Lead by founder Lauren Imparato.
