() Meghan Markle took part in a public yoga class on Friday in a bid to shake off her jet lag shortly after arriving in New York City to watch friend close-friend Serena Williams compete in the US Open.

The Duchess of Sussex was seen heading into Modo Yoga with a friend in the trendy West Village neighborhood of Manhattan.

Meghan, 38, joined a surprisingly full class of up to 60 people at the eco-conscious studio, which specializes in hot yoga classes.

‘There were lots of sweet, knowing smiles’ among those in the room, a source told People.com, with everyone respecting the duchess's privacy.

Incredibly, despite an astounding number of people being in the same small studio as one of the world's most famous women, a photo is yet to emerge of Meghan's session.

For friends of the duchess, news that she prioritized a yoga studio as one of her first stops in the Big Apple will come as little surprise.

After all, Meghan has long advocated for ancient Indian exercise discipline and the health benefits that come with it. 

Her mom, Doria Ragland - who works as a yoga instructor in LA - was largely responsible for kick-starting her love for the practice.

'She has been going to Modo Yoga for many years and tries to do so whenever she is in New York,' People's source added. 'It was the perfect remedy for jet lag.'

The solitary class at Modo is likely to have set the duchess back just $24, with unlimited monthly memberships costing $215.
