What is wrong with people these days? Can’t a girl just enjoy doing yoga in peace?

Keiko Herskovitz, a regular at Equinox’s Pure Yoga on West 77th Street, says she was in the corpse pose called shavasana, lying with her eyes closed, on Jan. 26 when she “heard someone walk into the room.”

Herskovitz ignored the noise until “she felt that there was a person next to her, and she opened her eyes to find a Pure Yoga. . . maintenance associate about two feet away, masturbating,” the suit says.

Herskovitz, 55, “asked, ‘What are you doing?!” the papers say. The man, described as a 19-year-old, quickly split, the suit says.

Herskovitz told a manager about the encounter. The supervisor allegedly dismissed the accusation and said that the man “was a good employee,” the court papers state.

She also reported the incident to police. She later received an e-mail from the studio acknowledging the seriousness of the incident, but management “has not reported the offender to the police or has taken any action against the offender,” the suit claims.

Hershkovitz’s attorney, Eric Creizman, is hiring a private investigator to determine if the maintenance worker “has been involved in additional incidents.”

She is suing Related Companies, which owns Equinox, for unspecified damages.

A spokesperson for Pure Yoga said the studio is “aware of the allegations and takes them seriously. Police have told us there’s no evidence of a crime.”
