Sarah Larson & Mason Levey are the co-founders of the New York-based fitness hot spot, Y7 Studio which has 13 locations around the country. After many years of struggling to find a yoga class that she loved, these two put their heads together and decided to invent a fitness experience that broke down the traditional barriers of yoga.

Their classes combine 60-minutes of intensity with heat and strength, complemented by deep breathing to calm the mind--all while set to the latest beats (think A Tribe Called Quest, Cardi B, Frank Ocean). The other element making it accessible and inclusive? All classes take place in a dark room with zero mirrors to eliminate the distraction of physical comparison.

Because of their devotion to a great customer experience, these two have built a multi-million dollar company that has been called one of the fastest-growing fitness boutiques in the country and ranked in the top 100 of Inc’s annual 5000 list. They’ve also gotten press from Forbes, Vogue, Bazaar, Shape, InStyle, Refinery29, Women’s Health and more.
