The Cure Studios
This body-positive dance and yoga studio focuses on celebrating movement rather than on weight loss, creating an inclusive and empowering space. Classes—many currently available online—include tribal dance–inflected Buti yoga (sometimes with live music), cardio-pumping pop and hip hop dance, and “Feminine Feels,” a session that encourages women to reconnect with their sexiness.
