This fusion of Pilates moves and Yoga poses will help you gain strength and flexibility while toning and sculpting! Check out PiYo before committing to our next 5 week series.
  • Kids’ Yoga: Don’t forget that we now offer a weekly class for kids ages 5-10 on Thursdays at 4:45pm. Only $6 per child when you pre-book through our Glofox app or online scheduling platform. Yoga is quickly becoming a great way to keep our youth healthy, flexible and active. It’s never too early (or late!) to start yoga.

  • Studio Yoga Mats: As we continue to make improvements to our studio, we would like to clarify that yoga mats are for the use of brand new members on their first visit. We ask that all students who try a class and plan to continue the practice of yoga, to invest in their own mat. This way you may choose the correct length, size and density to suit your individual needs. The downstairs Hot Yoga studio provides black yoga mats that are already placed down on the floor. You may place your own yoga mat on top for extra support. We ask that you please wipe down all mats after use. Do not roll up any studio mats that may still be wet, as this can become unsanitary. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
  • Lost and Found: If you have left behind a water bottle, yoga mat or other personal item, please make sure to check the yoga studio. Items not claimed by the end of each month will be recycled.

  5. Specialty Yoga classes! Fall sessions (Surfset, Tween/Kids yoga, Prenatal, etc.) of specialty yoga classes have now ended. Look out for winter sessions starting soon! However, we are offering a Level 2 Kettle Bell and Yoga series for those who have completed one of our Level 1 series. Please see our Class Schedule and scroll down to Sundays for registration.
  • Fall Drive! Thank you to all who donated items to our Montgomery County SPCA. Our instructor Stephanie, all The Twisted Monkey staff, and especially our Furry Friends appreciate your generosity and support!
  • Studio Yoga Mats! As we continue to make improvements to our studio, we would like to clarify that yoga mats are for the use of brand new members on their first visit. We ask that all students who try a class and plan to continue the practice of yoga, to invest in their own mat. This way you may choose the correct length, size and density to suit your individual needs. The downstairs Hot Yoga studio provides black yoga mats that are already placed down on the floor. You may place your own yoga mat on top for extra support. We ask that you please wipe down all mats after use. Do not roll up any studio mats that may still be wet, as this can become unsanitary. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
  • Lost and Found! If you have left behind a water bottle, yoga mat or other personal item, please make sure to check the yoga studio. Items not claimed by the end of each month will be recycled. The lost and found is located in the hot yoga ladies’ changing room or see an instructor. Thank you.
  • Stay Up-to-Date! Don’t forget to give us a like for daily schedule updates on our Facebook Page and follow us on Instagram and Twitter too!
  • As always, thank you for your continued support and smiles.

Happy November! Happy Thanksgiving!
