Women-Owned Fitness Co-op Opens in Manhattanville

January 12, 2024

Method Collective, a women-owned, mat-based movement space, has opened at 2293 12th Avenue (corner of 131st Street) in Manhattanville.

Founded in 2023 by Leah Roth, Patricia Ruiz, and Dani Zuccheri, Method Collective offers a diverse range of fitness classes, including yoga, pilates, and other fitness modalities. Method Collective’s new location establishes a physical home for the fitness co-op where classes can be held year-round following their launch in the adjacent West Harlem Piers Park.

Method Collective is offering promotional rates and trial classes in conjunction with its opening. Patrons can join Method Collective on Friday, February 2 to take a complementary class at 5:15 p.m., followed by its grand opening celebration at 6:30 p.m., and take advantage of a 10 percent discount on memberships and class packages. Method Collective is also hosting open house events exclusive to Columbia University affiliates the week of January 22, offering select free classes and added discounts for memberships and class packages.

Columbia University owns and manages retail space across the Morningside and Manhattanville campuses, and its long-standing retail approach favors businesses that bring a variety of amenities and experiences to the University and its local communities. Method Collective is the first retail tenant to open in one of the four small-format retail spaces along 12th Avenue, designed for entrepreneurial tenants to develop their businesses, on the ground floor of Columbia Business School’s Henry R. Kravis Hall.
