Modo Yoga NYC, an environmentally and socially conscious boutique yoga studio, announced the launch of their new masterclass mini-series “Going Deep: The Masterclass” that explores the Modo and Modo Flow sequences. The series will be offered next on Saturday, March 7, in the West Village and Saturday, March 28, in Williamsburg.
Modo Yoga combines the precision of therapeutic yoga and the foundations of traditional yoga in a specially heated room. All classes are designed to be accessible to every body.
Going Deep is geared toward anyone curious about Modo Yoga, for those looking to learn modifications, and for anyone looking to deepen and strengthen their practice. Yoga students of all levels are welcome to participate.
“We are excited to offer these classes to anyone interested in refining the essentials of Modo and Modo Flow from the ground up,” says Valerie Anne Verdier, director of teaching at Modo Yoga NYC and the visionary behind the masterclass series. Verdier designed the class for individuals looking for a deeper understanding of the movement and breath that create the Modo Yoga sequences. Students will explore alignment and breath along with foundational poses and centering.
“What is so unique about Modo and Modo flow sequences is the combination of powerful strengthening and peaceful style of yoga,” says Sarah Neufeld, co-founder of Modo Yoga NYC. “It is taught in a mindful way to help people to connect with themselves and to improve their overall well-being.”
Since 2004, Modo Yoga has grown from six studios to more than 80 across the U.S. and Canada. Modo Yoga opened its doors in New York City in 2012 with its first location in the West Village, quickly becoming one of the city’s most popular hot yoga studios. In 2016, Modo Yoga opened its second location in the heart of Williamsburg Brooklyn.
The studio’s founders strive to foster an inclusive community by creating fun, open spaces where everyone feels welcome—empowering people of all abilities to feel calm, fit, and inspired.

In 2019, Modo Yoga NYC raised over $100,000 for charity partners and helped protect 27,000 acres of land in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest through a collaboration with Junglekeepers. Valerie Verdier, along with Modo Yoga NYC, and Modo Yoga Montreal, also founded KAY, a non-profit organization devoted to bringing yoga to underprivileged kids in Haiti.
