Q&A with ‘Form + Flow’ at 27-01 41st Avenue

Earlier in September, we reported that yoga studio ‘Form + Flow‘ opened at 27-01 41st Avenue.1 Recently, we sat down with owner Shelly Yang to speak to her about her new studio. This is what she had to say:

The Court Square Blog: Tell us about Form + Flow.

Form + Flow: Form + Flow is a brand new yoga and art studio in Long Island City. Our studio is designed with modern and simple decors that generate an earthy and organic atmosphere. We focuses on building a strong community in LIC by gathering folks who are interested in wellness and art. Our studio strongly support local and international artists, designers and photographers to display their works at our studio. We would especially love to work with young and emerging artists to give them a space to reach a broader audience.

TCSB: What is your philosophy with yoga instruction?

FF: Our signature Form + Flow class (60 or 75 mins) is traditional vinyasa where we sync body and breath to create a moving meditation that strengthens and stretches the mind and body. We also offer morning and lunch hour Fit + Flow (45mins) classes that move slightly in a faster pace to stimulate the mind and body. All of our yoga instructors have many years of teaching experience. Our classes are designed to work for all students and all bodies, whether beginner or advanced. And all classes are taught in warm room temperature. We do not teach heated yoga, however the room may heat up from bodies in motion.

TCSB: Why did you pick Long Island City for your location?

FF: Long Island City is one of the most exciting and growing areas in NYC. Over the years, we have witnessed how quickly the area has changed. Many young working professionals and families have moved into the neighborhood, and LIC has been working hard to improve its infrastructure to make the are more livable. With new office and residential buildings coming up to the market, we definitely feel the need to bring wellness and art to area. We strongly believe that both art and yoga can cultivate positive energy and culture values to the neighborhood and its people.

RENT to play at Secret Theatre from Sept. 19 – Oct. 6 2019

Performing September 19 – October 6 2019

Welcome to Rent, the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning musical that shaped a generation. With its premiere in 1996, this production became a pop culture powerhouse of urban life, rock music, and a story that all ages can relate to.

“Based loosely on Puccini’s La Boheme, Jonathan Larson’s Rent follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.”
