What’s the opposite of namaste? Because of zoning issues, Surf Lodge, the popular hotel in Montauk, has been forced to shut down its free workout series, which boasts classes by Noah Neiman of Barry’s Bootcamp and Madonna’s former trainer Nicole Winhoffer. “Adding a yoga studio is not permitted,” East Hampton town attorney Michael Sendlenski told Page Six. “It’s in a residential district and it’s a pre-existing hotel and restaurant use there.” The good news is that the hotel can still offer classes to hotel guests. [Page Six] Cathaleen Chen
