We’re all about vacation, but taking a trip doesn’t mean your workout routine has to go on hiatus, too. Sarah Levey, who started the hip-hop yoga craze with Y7 Studio, lives her best life no matter if she’s working, playing or taking a much-needed escape, by fueling her body with essential do-anywhere power yoga moves.
Why did you start Y7?
SL: Y7 was really started for me. I was frustrated by the yoga experiences around me and wanted something that empowered, challenged and inspired me. Throughout my daily life, I try to take these ideals with me in order to be my best self.
How would you describe your lifestyle?
SL: Beautifully chaotic. I am constantly on the go and have to be flexible in my approach to everything. Things can change so quickly!
How do your travels inspire your workouts?
SL: I try to get some sort of activity in wherever I am and that really means immersing myself in what is around me. I have become accustomed to being able to work anywhere. It used to be really hard for me since I came from an office job before Y7 but I’ve found my rhythm. Headphones. Coffee. Laptop. Done.
