~Fellow Yoga and Wine Lovers….next month, Saturday May 10th, two events will be taking place that you won’t want to miss. The Twisted Monkey will be at both of them. 😉 

*Yogis…join us at Namas Day. The Twisted Monkey is one of several sponsors of this Philly Area Yoga Festival. Enjoy a free-spirited day filled with several yoga classes and workshops you can choose from, taught by some well-regarded and renowned Yoga Instructors. For more info and to purchase your tickets visit:


*Wine Lovers…After a fun day of yoga, treat yourself to a fun evening of wine and food. The Philadelphia Wine & Food Festival is back again! No yoga classes, but over 600 wines from around the world to sample. (Yoga in a bottle?) You can also sample dishes from some of the hottest restaurants in Philly. A silent auction will take place to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. For more info and to purchase your tickets visit: .

~Sign-ups for our May event are currently available. Friday, May 2nd, 7pm-8:30pm, join us for our first ever “YogaR Workshop!” Yoga-Rhythmics is a unique combination of yoga and intuitive dance. This workshop is for women only. Prepayment of $15 is required to reserve your spot. Info and sign-ups are available at the studio only, but will open up to the public soon…so stay tuned!

~We have some exciting news to share. One of our very own instructors, Veronica, is currently a student of Beyond Asana Yoga Teacher Training. As part of her commitment, she will be travelling with fellow students and teachers to Malawi, Africa with the BuildOn organization to help build a school. To support her on her journey, her Tuesday night 7pm Power-Vinyasa class will become a DONATION BASED only class beginning on May 6th through October 21st. What this means is that for that length of time, we will not be accepting class cards, Groupons, Living Social vouchers or gift certificates. Instead, we hope you will join us in helping Veronica raise the money needed to fulfill her dream and mission. We recommend the $10 class price, but whether you have $5, $10, less or more, any bit you can contribute will be appreciated. To read her story or if you’d like to donate, visit her Fundraising page:

~Continued renovations will be taking place in the main-level studio. We apologize in advance for the dust and mess. Over the next few months (and through the Summer) we will be making some great improvements! Thanks for your support and understanding!

~Have a great week! Namaste.
