On this Harlem blog, I use tees to feature the subject matter, ie Harlem. Sometimes readers ask, where can I buy a unique tee with the name Harlem on it? Here’s an option. One of my favorite Harlem sites, Harlem NYC, is now offering Harlem tees to purchase. The t-shirt says “Keep Harlem, Harlem.” Pretty cool…huh? If you’re interested in purchasing this Harlem tee, go here! And to check out Harlem NYC like I do, click here.

Sad Harlem business news to report. Late last night, Bikram Yoga East Harlem informed their members via email that they are “unable to continue operating and maintaining” the yoga studio located at 4 East 116th Street. The owners of Bikram Yoga say they are closing because they have been unable to make a profit from running the yoga studio. The East Harlem yoga studio will close on September 14.
Read the full email notice below.
Dear Bikram Yoga East Harlem Family and Friends:
We are writing to let you know that we are unfortunately unable to continue operating and maintaining Bikram Yoga East Harlem.
After nearly 5 years of serving our community, we continue to be faced with issues that prevent the studio from being profitable.
We have been pouring personal funds into the studio to keep it going for some time now. We can no longer do this.
We have contacted teachers and fellow studio owners who we thought might be interested in buying the studio and taking over the lease, however we got no firm offers.
We are still open to selling it, however, we must announce that the studio will be closed as of September 14th, 2013.
If you know of anyone who might be interested in purchasing the studio and taking over the lease, please have them contact us ASAP.
We are in the process of making arrangements for students to be able to transfer their packages to a nearby studio.
We will confirm those details ASAP.
It is with a heavy heart that we must close, but I look forward to being able to still teach and share the yoga without the burden of ownership in the near future.
Jennifer and I can not thank you enough for the support you have given to Bikram Yoga East Harlem over the past 5 years.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to call or email the studio.
Love & Light,

Yoga events are happening in July. Harlem-based yoga studios have fun and interesting things planned for this month, such as Henna for your Hair Workshop at Asali Yoga, Ayurveda Workshop at Harlem Yoga Studio, and a two-year anniversary party at Land Yoga.
On July 13 from 1 pm to 4:30 pm, Harlem Yoga Studio on 125th and Fifth Avenue will host a Ayurveda Workshop. Ayurveda views each person as having a unique mind/body constitution based on 5 elements found in nature: Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Sign up here for the workshop.
The next day, July 14, Asali Yoga, located on 135th Street between ACP and FDB, is hosting Henna for your Hair. Henna is a natural hair dye alternative. In this workshop, participants will learn how to mix henna and apply it to your hair. The event runs from 12:00-2:00 pm and costs $30. Sign up here.
And on the following Saturday, July 20th from 2-4:30 pm Land Yoga in Harlem is celebrating turning two! They will open their doors to the public for an afternoon day of festivities. Learn more about the event here.
