  • CorePower Yoga - Walnut Street

    CPY came to Philly at the end of 2015, but quickly made their name in the city for their central location in the heart of Rittenhouse, their expansive schedule (up to 16 classes offered daily!), and their steep cost (up to $25/class). However, fans know that you get what you pay for, from immaculately maintained locker rooms and spacious studios to the most energetic instructors in town. Their classes range in both temperature (over 100 degrees in their Hot Power Fusion classes!) and pace, but they offer a week free to anyone new to the studio. Check it out!

They’ve hosted goat yoga, bro-ga (yoga for the bros), glowga (glow in the dark yoga!), and even equestrian yoga. But beyond the animals and accessories, their dedication to welcoming and accessible classes for every level keeps yogis coming back for more!

    With two locations in Philly (and one in Jersey), you can start or strengthen your practice at Dhyana. No matter your experience, you’ll find room to breathe and experience inner balance here. Zen vibes flow freely and Dhyana often hosts workshops about topics from Ayurveda to anatomy, and handstands to holistic healing. Beginners can learn the poses and ease into their practice, or even observe Mysore classes in the morning while more experienced yogis channel the energy deep within, elevating the connection between mind, body, and spirit.

    From the space to the instructors, as well as a full slate of classes, there’s a lot to love about this South Street studio. The best part just might be how they combine fun and fitness in classes like a Funky Friday Vinyasa class. Think of it as happy hour for yogis. Yeah, we’re already sold. But Yoga Garden doesn’t stop there. They have the perfect class for every time of day, including Sunrise and Lunch Hour Vinyasa.

    Find true health, establish a deeper connection, and discover the power within. This power yoga studio is on a mission to help you do those three things, and so much more. Rooted in the Baptiste methodology, you’ll strengthen your body and mind while you sweat. And during the summer months, you can take your practice to the water; try your hand at SUP Yoga. That’s stand-up paddleboard, in case you were wondering. And it adds a whole new meaning to finding balance through your practice.

    A studio devoted to aerial yoga? We can’t lie — that’s pretty cool. But beyond the cool-factor, there’s actually a health-factor associated with this upside down, Cirque du Soleil-style yoga practice. Hanging in the hammock, lyra, or the silks helps to reassess flexibility and decompresses the spine. So, in addition to being really freaking cool, you can get a great workout in by hanging at this studio in Old City.

  • Hotbox Yoga

    There’s no doubt about it, this community (well, spots — Manayunk and University City) knows how to sweat, smile, and strengthen its students in every way. The fact that they teach Baptiste Power Vinyasa means that classes will be fun and full of energy, challenging and empowering you at the same time. Additionally, they crank the heat to 90 degrees, guaranteeing that you’ll leave drenched in sweat. And yet, you’ll walk away feeling refreshed and energized. We’ll just chalk that up to the magic of the Hotbox team and community.

  • Amrita Yoga & Wellness

    You could call this place the perfect balance of yoga and wellness. If you did, you’d be right. Amrita Yoga & Wellness is helping the Fishtown community find its flow one chaturanga at a time. Here, sweat through a yoga session, hit the mat or reformer for a Pilates class, or try your hand at Tai Chi. No matter which you choose, you’ll be feeling right when you’re done.

  • Philly Yoga Factory

    Three words say it all: Yoga. For. Everybody. Philly Yoga Factory is the only entirely donation-based studio in the city, meaning you can pay-what-you-wish for every single class. They share a space with a Bikram studio, so be prepared for some serious heat. Also, come ready for something new — this is a spot where teachers and students alike can explore new styles, from strength training classes geared at runners and athletes to sculpting PyroPilates classes! Fitt Tip: keep your eyes peeled for the occasional mindful meditation and hoop dancing class — you never know what’ll pop up!

    This Old City yoga studio focuses less on the chill and more on the thrill as the music is high-octane and the moves are dynamic and incredibly active. Strength and sweat are the stars in these heated classes, and the owners promise that even if you think you aren’t a “yoga person”, you’ll find a class right for you! Whether you’re a sun salutation skeptic or a yogi aficionado, Torc it up on Second Street for seriously vigorous Vinyasa!

  • Priya Hot Yoga

    In a neighborhood known for its museums, Priya’s a real work of art. If you’re new to hot yoga, it’s an ideal spot to start, as their instructors guide students through the process and the room isn’t quite as hot as other studios.  Plus, they host a number of themed classes in their bright and clean classrooms. All in, it’s a safe and welcoming space for those, because not all of us want to take yoga too seriously. Take advantage of their intro package — $40 for a month of unlimited hot yoga is a total steal.

  • Wake Up Yoga

    With locations in Rittenhouse, South Philly, and Fairmount, it’s no wonder this place has become home for so many yogis on the move. Delightfully unpretentious, each studio offers classic Vinyasa- and Yin-style classes in bright and clean spaces. Sick of swampy hot yoga classes? Don’t worry — these studios are air-conditioned and well-ventilated, so you’ll be breathing easy. Surely, you’ll nama-stay cool in these restorative classes!

  • Sanctuary Yoga & Mindfulness

    Right in the heart of Center City is an unexpectedly large, always-bright studio called Sanctuary Yoga & Mindfulness. This oasis of peace and calm on Locust St. features enormous windows that let the light in (without bringing in the city’s boisterous sounds). Considering the location, you’ll be pleased with the reasonable pricing, and they also offer a number of exploratory workshops and meditation classes in case you need to ramp things up, or slow things down.
