Brooklyn, NY According to Two Trees Management, SKY TING YOGA is now open at 325 Kent, the first completed building at the 11-acre Domino Sugar Factory site in Williamsburg. SKY TING YOGA is the first tenant to open at 325 Kent. The leasing transaction was handled in-house by Two Trees Management.
“We’ve known Krissy and Chloe since they started their own yoga practice in 2015,” said Jed Walentas, principal of Two Trees Management. “In Chinatown, we watched them build a brand that really stood out from the crowd and garnered a dedicated following. It’s our pleasure to bring SKY TING and this community to 325 Kent and we hope its members will also enjoy some downward dogs at the neighboring Domino Park once it opens to the public on the waterfront this summer.”
“We’ve been thinking about our Brooklyn space for a while and the Domino redevelopment site was the ideal fit for our vision,” said Krissy Jones, co-founder of SKY TING. “We try to be mindful about where we open studios, and we love raw spaces that we can shape to create the Ting feel. 325 Kent and all the exciting happenings at Domino and in the surrounding neighborhood align perfectly with our growing community,” said Chloe Kernaghan, SKY TING co-founder.
SKY TING will occupy 2,200 s/f in one of the largest ground-floor retail spaces at Two Trees’ 325 Kent.
SKY TING will offer five daily classes in a naturally-lit white studio and industrial space that can accommodate up to 40 mats. The new space has additional tile detailing, a large glass vitrine on the front desk that is lined with fur, and their signature sunken lounge pit.
Founders Chloe Kernaghan and Krissy Jones will co-teach at the new space on Saturday mornings and a Kundalini yoga class will be held on Thursday mornings. Once settled, the studio will expand their offering with additional classes tailored to the community. Keeping with the studio’s beloved tradition of naming each location after a spirit animal, SKY TING at 325 Kent will be a panda. Launched in 2015, SKY TING also has locations in Tribeca and Chinatown. For more information on all SKY TING offerings, please visit: www.skytingyoga.com.
