our story

In 2006, Om Factory was born out of the dust & debris of a windowless garment factory at 265 West 37th Street. Since our humble beginnings, we first expanded in 2012 to our second New York City location in Union Square, and then ventured further afield with Om Factory Seoul & Ilsan, South Korea, which both opened in 2013.

 

Om Factory has continued to grow in recent years, with Om Factory Hanoi opening its doors to coincide with our 10th Anniversary in NYC, March 2016. An additional studio opened in Vietnam in 2017: Om Factory Tay Ho, in the heart of Hanoi's beautiful West Lake neighborhood. Almost simultaneously, NoMad Om Factory was born in Taipei, Taiwan, where we now also have two vibrant studio locations. In 2018, we were thrilled to celebrate the Grand Opening of Om Factory Bangkok and Om Factory Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur, with many more exciting projects on the horizon.

 

In 2019, we enter the next phase of our evolution with the relocation of our original Fashion District hOMe to the same building that houses our Union Square location — bringing our two NYC studios under the same roof.

 

We owe our unique success in making Om Factory a home for yogis far and wide to our teachers — the core of our existence; to YOU, who keep our doors open; and to our loving staff and volunteers, for their tireless support and service.

 

We look forward to welcoming you hOMe.
