Sarah Larson Levey is the co-founder and CEO of New York-based Y7 Studio. She is an innovator, entrepreneur, 200-hour registered yoga instructor, author, and Health Coach.
After working in Fashion for five years, Levey launched Y7 Studio at 26 as an answer to her personal desire for something other than the (very) traditional yoga practices offered. Since launching in 2013, the Y7 brand has expanded to a bicoastal business with 11 studios across New York and Los Angeles, disrupting the fitness space and flexing real influence. Uniquely positioned—Y7 classes combine 60-minutes of intensity with infrared heat and strength, complemented by deep breathing to calm the mind, all while set to the latest beats. Levey’s goal? Make the practice of yoga more accessible and inclusive in attitude and design, with dark rooms and zero mirrors to eliminate the distraction of physical comparison.
