We are happy to announce that we have two Ya-Ya Pod host locations, morning in Tribeca and afternoon in Union Square. Please submit your Ya-Ya Pod application here if you are interested in joining either location.
*Spots are very limited and not guaranteed.
* Our team is committed to thoughtful planning and careful consideration of various factors before we will proceed in forming a potential pod. A mandatory meeting with all the pod family members together will be required in reviewing all the safety and health measures, which must be agreed upon by all the members before a pod can be confirmed.
