Peloton’s Lunar New Year event at PSNY With Lovewell & Wang

Peloton intend to host an event celebrating the Lunar New Year at NY’s Peloton Studios (PSNY), on January 22nd, 2023, with instructors Katie Wang and Emma Lovewell. Peloton sent invitations by email to a few members for this private event.


The email states that there is a limited number of seats available and invitees must RSVP by January 18th. The invitation is not to be forwarded to non-invited members.

It is not clear how Peloton chooses which members are invited to private events like these. Recent meetings included one Callie Gullickson event in January, and a rowing Peloton event in November.

Peloton hosted classes for the Lunar New Year in 2022. So, it is likely that they will do so this year as well. However, none of the current schedules are available. Last year’s festivities included riding sessions with Sam Yo and Emma Lovewell, as well as a running session with Peloton instructor Susie Chan. Sunday, January 22nd, marks the start of the Lunar New Year in 2023.
